We have a special surprise for you today so we’re dusting off our article from earlier this summer to show you how to create a Google Voice hosting platform in the cloud. The special surprise is that the hosting platforms which previously were priced at $10 a year and $13 a year are now 25% OFF for today and tomorrow only. And, if you pay in advance for 3 years, you can double your platform’s RAM or storage space. The… Read More ›

Today we are pleased to introduce a fifth 2018 update for Incredible PBX® and the Raspberry Pi® to celebrate the arrival of native GVSIP Google Voice functionality thanks to @NAF and SRTP encrypted communications thanks to the efforts of @qtlnx of PIAF Forum fame. And, of course, this new build supports the new RasPi 3B+ which features all-new wireless networking, a new USB/Ethernet hub with gigabit Ethernet support, new on-board power supplies, a new BCM2837 chip, and POE support using… Read More ›

Our last major Incredible PBX® upgrade on the Ubuntu platform supported Ubuntu 14.04 which was released in April, 2014. We skipped 16.04 because of all the wrinkles it introduced for VoIP deployments: an incompatible PHP upgrade, missing ODBC support, and on and on. Fortunately, all of those issues have been sorted out over the past two years, and several months ago we introduced Incredible PBX 13-13 for the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS platform which was released in April. Now we’ve added… Read More ›

Whether you’re new to VoIP technology or an Old Timer, nothing is quite as frustrating as wrestling with one-way audio and no audio on SIP calls either because of poorly designed NAT-based routers or poorly implemented SIP ALG solutions on low-end residential routers. To make matters worse, you get to deal with calls originating behind not one, but two, NAT-based routers neither of which complies with the basic SIP Rules of the Road. In a perfect world, SIP and RTP… 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 incorporates NAF’s new GVSIP interface to Google Voice. You can… Read More ›

We’ve been scratching our head for a good way to commemorate Micro$oft’s $7.5 billion purchase of GitHub which has served as the linchpin of the open source development community for many years. We’ll leave it to others and history to judge whether this was a good idea or not. What we came up with was a GPL Toolkit for Incredible PBX 13-13 that makes it child’s play to upgrade FreePBX® GPL modules in our Incredible PBX® 13-13 offerings for CentOS/SL,… Read More ›

If you’ve been enjoying this summer’s wild roller coaster ride on the Google Voice train, then your worst nightmare is almost over… until the next time. What we all hopefully learned from Google’s cavalier sledgehammer-approach to telephony is DON’T DEPEND ON GOOGLE. Enjoy the free ride once again but make some alternative arrangements for the next time Google gets a harebrained idea as stupid as this one. Google’s idea of an "open platform" is proprietary everything even down to the… Read More ›
