We walked through the RedHat ISO creation procedure a couple years ago, but we wanted to revisit the issue using the 64-bit Scientific Linux 6.9 platform for those that want a current ISO image with Asterisk® 13 LTS. We recommend setting up your build environment on a VirtualBox virtual machine. Then you’ll have something to store away on your desktop computer in the event you ever want to create more customized ISOs. For today, you’ll need the 64-bit SL 6.9… Read More ›

As many of you know, the Asterisk® 13.16 and 13.17 releases caused serious breakage with FreePBX® 12 GPL deployments.

To give credit where credit is due, the Sangoma developers have made some impressive improvements with their FreePBX 13 release. And now we’re pleased to introduce a… Read More ›

Let’s face it. It’s hard not to like the application development flexibility that Asterisk® offers, especially if you’re part of an organization that has very specific telephony needs. But the price you pay for "free" and putting all of your eggs in the Asterisk basket is painful.

Let’s face it. Voice recognition with Google has been hit and miss, and that’s on a good day. So we’re delighted to shift gears and introduce a new platform powered by IBM Watson’s Speech-to-Text (STT) engine. While it’s not free, that’s really theoretical for most of our readers. Your first month on the platform is entirely free. And, after that, you get 1,000 minutes a month of free voice recognition services. If you still want more, it’s 2¢ a minute.… Read More ›
