PIONEERS: Introducing Incredible PBX 16-15 with Asterisk 16

If you like hanging out on the Bleeding Edge, then today’s your lucky day. Digium introduced Asterisk® 16 LTS last week at AstriCon. And Sangoma followed up with the alpha release of FreePBX® 15. We burned the midnight oil this past week to produce Incredible PBX® 16-15 featuring Asterisk 16 and the GPL modules from FreePBX 15. We normally take shelter when we hear the word "alpha" but FreePBX 15 is actually pretty stable. Don’t plan on using this build… Read More ›

If you’ve been following along this past month as we rolled out a new SIP-based Google Voice implementation for Asterisk®, then you’ve gotten a first-hand look at how sausage is made. If you prefer free calling in the U.S. and Canada, then it was worth the effort. Today, we put the finishing touches on the new GVSIP-NAF implementation by introducing a version specifically tailored for those using FreePBX®. That, of course, includes the CentOS 6, Ubuntu 18, and Raspbian 8… Read More ›

Whether you’re new to VoIP technology or an Old Timer, nothing is quite as frustrating as wrestling with one-way audio and no audio on SIP calls either because of poorly designed NAT-based routers or poorly implemented SIP ALG solutions on low-end residential routers. To make matters worse, you get to deal with calls originating behind not one, but two, NAT-based routers neither of which complies with the basic SIP Rules of the Road. In a perfect world, SIP and RTP… Read More ›

We’re delighted to introduce the bells and whistles for Incredible PBX® 13-13. We’ve taken a slightly different approach with this release.

This gets you a fully-functioning PBX with the latest Asterisk® 13 and most of the FreePBX® 13 GPL modules. This release incorporates NAF’s new GVSIP interface to Google Voice. You can… Read More ›

We’ve been scratching our head for a good way to commemorate Micro$oft’s $7.5 billion purchase of GitHub which has served as the linchpin of the open source development community for many years. We’ll leave it to others and history to judge whether this was a good idea or not. What we came up with was a GPL Toolkit for Incredible PBX 13-13 that makes it child’s play to upgrade FreePBX® GPL modules in our Incredible PBX® 13-13 offerings for CentOS/SL,… Read More ›
