You can read all about it here, and you can read our cautious optimism here. As with the recent Google Voice transformation, we hope it serves as a gentle reminder to the VoIP community not to put all your eggs in one basket.

If you’ve been waiting for a low-cost, feature-rich SIP phone that meshes perfectly with your Asterisk® PBX, your prayers have been answered.

Digium gave us a couple of early models to play with, and today we’ll walk you through the incredibly simple setup. We would begin by noting that, despite the pricing, these phones are configured with nothing resembling… Read More ›

We previously documented how to interconnect an Issabel PBX with 3CX to take advantage of the best of both worlds. Today, we’ll again use the Nerd Vittles free 3CX server offering and interconnect it with a Wazo PBX. An added benefit of using Wazo is the fact that you can set up redundant (and free) HA servers with Wazo in minutes. Once we get the pieces in place, from Wazo extensions, you’ll be able to call your 3CX Clients by… 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 ›

NEWS FLASH: A new release of Incredible PBX for Issabel is now available. Tutorial is here. If you didn’t already know, we’ve always liked free.

There was more than a little disappointment when PaloSanto Solutions closed up their Elastix® shop last year. The good news was that 3CX stepped in with a terrific free offer on their commercial PBX for Elastix users. And, of course, Sangoma® quickly learned Spanish to tout their closed source crippleware, the FreePBX® Distro. But today’s a new day, and there’s another great surprise as the discontinued Elastix 4 open source product is reincarnated as Issabel 4. Featuring a respin of… Read More ›
