The question you’re probably wanting answered is how much does it… Read More ›

Once upon a time, spending $15 to $50 a month for a cloud-based KVM platform to manage your Asterisk® PBX was considered a good deal. But, in the words of Bob Dylan, Times They Are A-Changin’. Our testing over the past couple years confirms that paying premium prices for Google or Amazon EC2 VoIP platforms is nothing short of a waste of money.

Shifting gears is never easy, and sometimes it takes ill-advised corporate blunders to move the needle. But IBM®’s decimation of the CentOS project last month coupled with the Sangoma® Ransomware fiasco were just the motivation we needed to shift into overdrive and explore alternatives for the Incredible PBX® 2021 project. After six beta releases, we are delighted to introduce Incredible PBX 2021 with ClearlyIP’s FreePBX® 15 module protection and your choice of either Asterisk® 16 or the Asterisk 18 LTS… Read More ›

With the almost overnight popularity of the new Clearly Anywhere softphone which provides Incredible PBX connectivity from virtually anywhere, we wanted to add a missing piece to our Incredible PBX 2021 release. Because softphones need connectivity on both cellular networks and using Wi-Fi with dynamic IP addresses in multiple locations, exclusive whitelist-based access to Incredible PBX platforms simply was no longer feasible.

If you loved the PC Jr. and New Coke, you’re going to love yesterday’s technology news. Claiming the best of intentions, IBM® cut the 8-year life span of CentOS® 8 to one year after which CentOS will become CentOS Stream, an experimental development platform sandwiched between Fedora® and Red Hat Enterprise Linus®. If you’ve spent the last year or two planning for or deploying CentOS 8, too bad. You can either pay up for RHEL licenses going forward or switch… Read More ›
