The Holy Grail for many of us in the VoIP community has been a cellphone that functions like a traditional Asterisk® extension on your PBX.

In addition to jaw-dropping hardware enhancements, the introduction also included the new Raspbian 10 (Buster) platform which was surprising since Debian 10 isn’t scheduled for official release until the end of this week. As with prior releases, Raspbian 10 brought with it some major headaches for the VoIP community not the least of which is FreePBX® cannot (yet) be installed. But sometimes there’s a… Read More ›
