Shifting gears is never easy, and sometimes it takes ill-advised corporate blunders to move the needle. But IBM®’s decimation of the CentOS project last month coupled with the Sangoma® Ransomware fiasco were just the motivation we needed to shift into overdrive and explore alternatives for the Incredible PBX® 2021 project. After six beta releases, we are delighted to introduce Incredible PBX 2021 with ClearlyIP’s FreePBX® 15 module protection and your choice of either Asterisk® 16 or the Asterisk 18 LTS… Read More ›

We are delighted to introduce the beta release of Incredible PBX 2021 for Debian 10 for those with a pioneering spirit that would like to participate in development of this promising new platform. Before we get started, a few… Read More ›

If you loved the PC Jr. and New Coke, you’re going to love yesterday’s technology news. Claiming the best of intentions, IBM® cut the 8-year life span of CentOS® 8 to one year after which CentOS will become CentOS Stream, an experimental development platform sandwiched between Fedora® and Red Hat Enterprise Linus®. If you’ve spent the last year or two planning for or deploying CentOS 8, too bad. You can either pay up for RHEL licenses going forward or switch… Read More ›

The Most Important Asterisk Component: It’s the Backups!

The Most Important Asterisk Component: It’s the Backups!

You might think Backups are critical in the event of a catastrophic hardware failure. And you’d be right. But there are other equally important reasons to maintain current backups. If you decide to migrate to a new server platform, a current backup makes it a painless exercise. If you need to recover from a FreePBX® module upgrade that hosed your server, a current backup is critical. If you want to migrate to a newer release of Asterisk® or FreePBX, a… Read More ›

As we’re all hunkered down hiding from the Coronavirus, it seemed a perfect time to finally tackle the project we’ve… Read More ›

You’ll also have ample room to implement a Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution to store music or documents. With Wi-Fi in your home or office,… Read More ›

We’re rounding out our softphone series today with the perfect complement to Clearly Anywhere for Asterisk® and FreePBX®. Let’s face it. SIP URI dialing from extensions is not Asterisk’s strong suit which is disappointing since SIP URI calling is free. If you’ve been following Incredible PBX® 2020 developments this year, you already know that we’ve pushed everyone to move their VoIP servers to the cloud. You not only get a more flexible PUBLIC platform that lets you go virtually anywhere… Read More ›
