And, as we’ve mentioned previously, if everyone in the world had their own SIP URI, paying for phone calls would become a thing of the… Read More ›

We’re pleased to introduce the 2019 edition of Incredible PBX® for Issabel featuring new VPS cloud provider support and one-minute setup for Skyetel SIP trunking.

We’ve previously documented the benefits of SIP URI calling. Because the calls are free from and to anywhere in the world, the use case is compelling. The drawbacks, particularly with Asterisk® servers, have primarily centered around the security implications of exposing SIP on a publicly-accessible server. Today we want to take a fresh look at a possible SIP implementation for Asterisk based upon the pioneering work of Dr. Lin Song back in the PBX in a Flash heyday. We’ve embellished… Read More ›
