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 either the CentOS® 6 or 7 platform. This gets you a fully-functioning PBX with the latest Asterisk® 13 and most of the FreePBX® 13 GPL modules. From there, you can customize your PBX in any way… Read More ›

We are pleased to introduce this fall 2017 update for Incredible PBX® for Raspberry Pi®.

We’ll show you how in today’s tutorial. Hard to believe… Read More ›

With last week’s release of Incredible PBX 13-13 Lean with Asterisk® 13 and FreePBX® 13 GPL modules, it seemed like an opportune time to revisit the initial setup process of an Asterisk-based PBX. Configuring extensions, trunks, and routes are the fundamental steps in successfully interconnecting your PBX to the telecommunications network. So today we’ll walk through the initial setup process in some detail for those that are just getting started. And we think old-timers may find some hidden nuggets in… Read More ›

As many of you know, the Asterisk® 13.16 and 13.17 releases caused serious breakage with FreePBX® 12 GPL deployments. These have been resolved in the new Asterisk 13.18 release candidate, but it prompted us to do a little exploring for alternatives while many of you were partying at AstriCon in Orlando last week. To give credit where credit is due, the Sangoma developers have made some impressive improvements with their FreePBX 13 release. And now we’re pleased to introduce a… Read More ›

Let’s face it. It’s hard not to like the application development flexibility that Asterisk® offers, especially if you’re part of an organization that has very specific telephony needs. But the price you pay for "free" and putting all of your eggs in the Asterisk basket is painful. Here are a few of the hurdles that come to mind: security, NAT, one-way audio, remote users, CRM support, conferencing, painful upgrades to address frequent bug fixes, and, more generally, telephone management and… Read More ›

With the Digium announcement last week that four and a half year’s worth of Asterisk® servers were vulnerable to the RTP eavesdropping bug, it prompted us to dust off our Incredible PBX® 13 for CentOS build and bring it up to current specs including the Digium patch for RTPbleed. And then along came Hurricane Issabel to remind us that sh*t happens, and it pays to have a backup plan for your telecommunications infrastructure. So today we’re pleased to introduce two… Read More ›

If you’ve installed Asterisk® during the past 4½ years, your server has a MAJOR security problem. If you didn’t already know, with Asterisk, your VoIP conversations actually are carried over a random UDP port using the Real Time Protocol (RTP), not the SIP port (UDP 5060) which handles the setup and teardown of your VoIP connections. It turns out that, since March 2013, all of that RTP traffic and thus your conversations could be intercepted and redirected by anyone on… Read More ›

Many of us wear several hats during our business careers. One of those invariably is managing a community organization of some flavor. We frequently are asked for advice on what the ideal telephony solution would be for such an organization. The reason for the inquiries typically is because the Bell Sisters have now jacked up the cost of a single, business phone line to well over $100 a month. And that gets you local calls only unless you sign up… Read More ›
