With Spring Break upon us and Summer Vacations just around the corner, we wanted to briefly review some of your cellphone and data options for those that might be planning a trip outside the United States. If you’re only going as far as Mexico, Canada, or the U.S. Virgin Islands, then your existing cellular provider in the U.S. may have you covered at no additional cost. If your provider is not AT&T, then check with your carrier. And speaking of… Read More ›

If you’re as big a fan of Ubuntu as we are, then you’ll be pleased to know that the month-old update to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is rock-solid. It takes a brave soul to name anything Bionic Beaver, but Ubuntu pulls it off and makes you want to meet one face-to-face, just not in a bar after midnight. Well, St. Paddy would be proud. Today’s new Incredible PBX® 13-13.10 release brings you everything you could want in a PBX, and the… Read More ›

Not that you needed another reason to sign up for Skyetel’s triple-redundant SIP hosting platform, but we have a new one for you anyway. A fault-tolerant VoIP platform always has been the Holy Grail for many organizations. When your business depends on telephone calls, the very last thing you want to fail is your phone system. When most administrators think of fault-tolerant, high availability (HA) servers, the first word that comes to mind is expensive. For example, FreePBX® charges $1500/node… 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. Instead of getting the Whole Enchilada out of the box, you now have a choice. You start with Incredible PBX 13-13 LEAN on the recommended CentOS® 6.10 platform. This gets you a fully-functioning PBX with the latest Asterisk® 13 and most of the FreePBX® 13 GPL modules. This release includes support for Skyetel SIP trunking from our Platinum Sponsor… Read More ›

Adding SIP URI Dialing to Asterisk for Free Worldwide Calling

Since giving up on Google Voice, we’ve been extolling the virtues of SIP URI dialing which gives you unlimited free calls to anyone else in the world that happens to have their own SIP URI address. SIP URIs look very much like email addresses except they’re used to share phone conversations instead of email messages. 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. One of the limitations of Issabel 4 has been the required use of the ISO installer to deploy Asterisk® 13. This 2019 release addresses that limitation and lets you do a fully scripted install using one of our four recommended $7 to $15 a year VPS cloud providers. This new release includes our next generation… Read More ›

Having been around the block more times than we can remember, suffice it to say it takes a lot to get us excited about a VoIP provider. Let us tick off some criteria to even get our attention: terrific pricing, failsafe reliability, and first class performance. So just imagine our excitement to discover that an early follower of Nerd Vittles now provides one of the most compelling VoIP services we’ve ever tested with triple redundancy in multiple data centers.

If ever there was a Swiss Army Knife for SIP, Kamailio (a.k.a. OpenSER) is the hands-down winner. The flexibility of this open source SIP server is legendary. Whether it’s secure communications, insulation from brute force attacks, load balancing, failover, WebRTC, or the return of shared line appearances on your office phone system, Kamailio can handle it while processing thousands of call setups per second on minimal hardware platforms. Our plan for today is to walk you through setting up a… Read More ›
