Integrating SIP URIs into XiVO for Free Worldwide Calling

It’s been a while since we’ve explored SIP URIs and all of the advantages that SIP URI calling brings to your PBX. Number one on that list is FREE calling to and from anyone on the planet so long as both of you have an Internet connection with a SIP phone or a VoIP server such as Incredible PBX for XiVO. SIP URIs are the fundamental building blocks for VoIP technology. Consider this. If everyone in the world had a… Read More ›

Today we’re pleased to dust off an oldie but goodie and to introduce Google Calendar integration for XiVO and Asterisk® 13.1 This gets you a reminder call at any number you choose based upon the Notification time that is set whenever you schedule a meeting or appointment in your Google Calendar. Our special thanks to Terry Wilson for his pioneering work at Digium® on the calendaring API. Together with the flexibility that XiVO affords out of the box, it made… Read More ›

Just in time for election season, we are pleased to introduce our second generation robocall-blocking software which lets you deploy and periodically update the FCC’s RoboCall Blacklist on any Asterisk® 11 or 13 server platform. One of the biggest jokes in the U.S. telecommunications industry has been the FCC’s Do Not Call List, a convenient source of working phone numbers for all the spammers on Planet Earth. And, of course, the politicians exempted themselves from the robocalling ban. But the… Read More ›

2016, The Year of VoIP Choice: Redundancy and Multi-Tenant with XiVO

2016, The Year of VoIP Choice: Redundancy and Multi-Tenant with XiVO

As we celebrate Labor Day, it seemed appropriate to document why XiVO separates the men from the boys so your phones don’t end up as boat anchors buried in the sand. Today our focus is “High Availability (HA)” and “Multi-Tenant (MT)“, two very expensive options for many PBXs including some that loosely tout their platforms as free. In the PBX context, HA means that, when your server fails, there’s another one waiting in the wings to automatically take over. Much… Read More ›

Hard to believe it’s been 4½ years since the introduction of the original Raspberry Pi®.

Since we began our XiVO adventure a couple months ago, the most requested feature has been direct support for Google Voice. For those in the United States, it remains the cheapest VoIP solution on the planet (when it works) with unlimited free calls throughout the U.S. and Canada. While we’ve had Google Voice functionality in XiVO through the Simonics SIP to Google Voice Gateway since the outset, there still were some who preferred to keep their credentials and tokens to… Read More ›

Nobody has to tell us how painful change can be. We oversaw the deployment of over 30,000 IBM PCs only to switch horses and become a dedicated Mac lover. And we’ve invested almost 10 years in another Asterisk® GUI only to be disappointed by the direction of that project. That led to our New Year’s Resolution to find a better mousetrap for unified communications open source development. And, boy, did we find one. So here’s the deal. You either believe… Read More ›
