If you’re just getting started with OpenSIPS, check out the new KVM offerings below and then hop over… Read More ›

We’ve previously documented the benefits of SIP URI calling. Because the calls are free from and to anywhere in the world, the use case is compelling. The drawbacks, particularly with Asterisk® servers, have primarily centered around the security implications of exposing SIP on a publicly-accessible server. Today we want to take another look at an open Internet SIP implementation for Asterisk based upon the pioneering work of Dr. Lin Song back in the PBX in a Flash heyday. We’ve embellished… Read More ›

We covered Kamailio in our Part I article. And we’ve skipped writing about SIP server contestants two, three, and four because they each had a healthy dose of insurmountable problems… at least for us. So today we’re pleased to present Part V in our SIP server series. And, as the headline exclaims, with OpenSIPS we’ve found a platform that finally is worthy of your attention. Our requirements were fairly straightforward. We wanted an open source SIP server to which we… Read More ›

Earlier this year we demonstrated how to set up a publicly-accessible Asterisk® server to enable free worldwide calling using SIP URIs which are email-like addresses for VoIP and video calls. But not everyone has an Asterisk server so today’s tutorial extends free calling to everyone with a Windows or Linux PC, a Mac, or any smartphone or tablet. All you need is a desktop computer with wired or wireless Internet access or, on a smartphone or tablet, a cell data… Read More ›

The Holy Grail for a mobile VoIP solution is a simple way to connect back to your primary Asterisk® PBX via Wi-Fi from anywhere in the world to make and receive calls as if you never left. Let’s tick off the potential problems. First, many home-based PBXs are sitting behind NAT-based routers. Second, almost all remote Wi-Fi connections are made through a NAT-based router. Third, chances are the remote hosting platform blocks outgoing email from downstream servers such as a… Read More ›
