We’ve sung the praises of VirtualBox for many years because it provides a wonderful platform for experimentation as well as production-ready systems using almost any hardware and any operating system.

We’ve received dozens of emails about Wazo, and… Read More ›

When it comes to choices in free PBXs, times have indeed changed. A decade ago your options went something like this. There was Asterisk@Home or Asterisk@Home. Then along came trixbox® and Elastix® and PBX in a Flash™ and AsteriskNOW®. What remained constant throughout this evolution was the underlying Asterisk® platform. With the exception of Digium’s offering, the remaining products all included the FreePBX® GUI. Then came a whole new way of looking at things with FreeSWITCH®. Another morphing occurred when… Read More ›

We’re kicking off a new series on VoIP trunks today. One of the main reasons is that Google has (again) warned that Google Talk (aka GChat), XMPP, and SMS messaging are going away on June 26. If true, that would mean that Google Voice (as we know it today) will no longer function on Asterisk®-based PBXs. If you’re smart and care about uninterrupted telephone and messaging services, you’ve got two months for contingency planning. Today we’ll be taking a fresh… Read More ›
