So we’re excited to introduce Visible, Verizon’s very own MVNO. A few disclaimers are in order before we get into the specifics. First, as with all MVNO’s, your usage is subject to throttling in high usage areas.… Read More ›

Shifting gears is never easy, and sometimes it takes ill-advised corporate blunders to move the needle. But IBM®’s decimation of the CentOS project last month coupled with the Sangoma® Ransomware fiasco were just the motivation we needed to shift into overdrive and explore alternatives for the Incredible PBX® 2021 project. After six beta releases, we are delighted to introduce Incredible PBX 2021 with ClearlyIP’s FreePBX® 15 module protection and your choice of either Asterisk® 16 or the Asterisk 18 LTS… Read More ›

We’re rounding out our softphone series today with the perfect complement to Clearly Anywhere for Asterisk® and FreePBX®. Let’s face it. SIP URI dialing from extensions is not Asterisk’s strong suit which is disappointing since SIP URI calling is free. If you’ve been following Incredible PBX® 2020 developments this year, you already know that we’ve pushed everyone to move their VoIP servers to the cloud. You not only get a more flexible PUBLIC platform that lets you go virtually anywhere… Read More ›

With the almost overnight popularity of the new Clearly Anywhere softphone which provides Incredible PBX connectivity from virtually anywhere, we wanted to revisit our Incredible PBX 2020 PUBLIC tutorial to document some additional tips and tricks. And, because softphones need connectivity on both cellular networks and using Wi-Fi with dynamic IP addresses in multiple locations, exclusive whitelist-based access to Incredible PBX simply was no longer feasible. Additionally, due to Clearly Anywhere’s tight integration with the FreePBX® User Control Panel (UCP),… Read More ›
