Ever wished your Asterisk® server could harness the power of a 10,000 CPU Supercomputer to answer virtually any question you can dream up about the world we live in? Well, so long as it’s for non-commercial use, today’s your lucky day. Apple’s Siri™ and Amazon’s Alexa™ demonstrated just how amazing this technology can be. It began by coupling Wolfram Alpha® to a speech-to-text engine on the iPhone 4S. And now, thanks to IBM’s new speech transcription engine and Wolfram Alpha’s… Read More ›

It’s been several years since we introduced our Call By Name script for Asterisk® using IBM’s Voice Recognition software. During that time, IBM has shifted gears on their pricing plans and their API methodology several times. So today we want to provide a new soup-to-nuts tutorial for those using Incredible PBX on the Raspberry Pi and Incredible PBX 2021 on both the Debian 10 and Ubuntu 20.04 platforms. If you have previously used IBM voice recognition (STT), be aware that… Read More ›

Miracles happen every so often, but we never expected our Linux-based Incredible PBX platform to be running natively on the Microsoft Windows 11 desktop. Some have asked why you’d even want to do this when VirtualBox is available for Windows, and Incredible PBX VirtualBox images are available for Debian 10 and Rocky 8. The short answer is we got kernel crashes on our cheapo Windows 11 hardware. The longer answer is the VirtualBox days are numbered as it won’t run… Read More ›

It’s not every day that you get an opportunity to deploy an Incredible PBX® server on a cloud platform as robust as the one offered by Oracle®. And the fact that it won’t cost you a dime EVER makes this all the more appealing. This isn’t some bargain basement, crippled cloud platform with barely enough horsepower to get your server booted. Quite the contrary. This is an ARM-based Ubuntu 20.04 platform with 6GB of RAM, 45+ GB of storage, and… Read More ›

This week’s adventure is just for fun. It’s a VirtualBox® Beauty featuring Incredible PBX®, Asterisk® 18, FreePBX® 15, and MX Linux 21.1.

If all of these apps sound like Greek, then… Read More ›

We’ve been on a roll celebrating March Madness by adding Rocky 8 to the Incredible PBX® portfolio. In addition to a native installer, we also added a VirtualBox image and a 5-minute CrownCloud setup, an amazing cloud-based platform for just $25 a year. Now that spring has sprung, we want to shift our focus to three new Incredible PBX offerings: Debian 11, Asterisk® 19, and FreePBX® 16. So, if you pride yourself on your pioneering spirit, today’s your lucky day.… Read More ›

5 Minute Wonder: Incredible PBX 2022 in Cloud for $25/Yr.

We’ve been building turnkey Incredible PBX® servers for virtual machine platforms for many years. Because the servers are built from images, typical install times have been 5 minutes or less with Proxmox, VirtualBox, and VMware ESXi. But the missing piece has been a similar image install on a true cloud-based platform. This limitation was primarily due to the fact that we don’t own or control the available cloud platforms which typically limit image installs to operating systems such as CentOS,… Read More ›
