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.

In addition to jaw-dropping hardware enhancements, the introduction also included the new Raspbian 10 (Buster) platform which was surprising since Debian 10 isn’t scheduled for official release until the end of this week. As with prior releases, Raspbian 10 brought with it some major headaches for the VoIP community not the least of which is FreePBX® cannot (yet) be installed. But sometimes there’s a… Read More ›

It was a near perfect plug-and-play hardware solution for secure communications between remote sites using less than secure Windows PCs. Cisco quickly saw the potential, gobbled up the company, and promptly doubled the price of the rebranded concentrators. About 10 years ago, we… Read More ›

Over the past decade, there is no subject that we have devoted more resources to than searching for the best platform on which to run a VoIP server.
