Getting Started with XiVO



Don’t be intimidated by the number of tutorials which follow. We’ve structured these in much the same way that we build systems for clients, except you don’t have to pay for any of it. To get a functioning XiVO server on the platform of your choice so that you can make outgoing calls and receive incoming calls will take less than an hour. Choose fromj one of the server platforms that best meets your needs. If you’re just getting started, Digital Ocean is a terrific sandbox for learning because you get $10 of free use and they charge less than a penny an hour. See our referral link in the tutorial to get your freebie.

After the initial XiVO server setup, you’ll need to choose at least one trunk provider so that you can make outbound calls and receive incoming calls. Vitelity is the Platinum Sponsor of the Nerd Vittles open source projects, and we’ve had a beautiful relationship for many years because their SIP services are second to none. By all means, read all of the Trunk Provider tutorials and choose the ones that best meet your needs. Unlike traditional phone service, there’s no need to put all of your eggs in one basket. You only pay for VoIP services that you use so there is little harm in signing up with multiple providers.

Once you have your providers set up, it’s a simple matter to create inbound routes to process incoming calls and outbound routes to handle your outgoing calls to traditional telephones. The rest is icing on the cake that you can learn about as you go along. Some of the tutorials aren’t finished just yet, but we’ll get there. Enjoy the ride!
