Oracle Cloud: Grab a Free Incredible PBX Cloud Server for Life

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 ›

Systems Integration and Public Participation with FreePBX

It’s been an interesting few days in the FreePBX® VoIP community with a thread on the VoIP-Info.org and another on the FreePBX Forum. It’s prompted us to revisit what open source development is all about and what all of this means to those of you that rely upon Asterisk® and FreePBX. After the departure of the Schmooze folks from Sangoma, virtually all development has been moved behind closed doors with the first opportunity for public participation occurring after new features… 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 ›

As we celebrate the 17th birthday of Nerd Vittles this week, it seemed only fitting to introduce a new version of Incredible PBX 2022 which will carry telephony forward until the end of this decade. For history buffs, you may recall that CentOS used to be a perfect clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux… until it wasn’t when RedHat decided to morph CentOS into a development sandbox known as CentOS Stream. And then along came Gregory Kurtzer, the original developer… Read More ›

Migrating Incredible PBX 2021 to a PUBLIC Facing Cloud PBX

Migrating Incredible PBX 2021 to a PUBLIC Facing Cloud PBX

Today we want to again enhance the migration of Incredible PBX 2021 into a PUBLIC-facing Cloud PBX. What that means is authorized users can connect a SIP phone to the PBX regardless of where the user might be located without worries about an ever-changing dynamic IP address and the requirement to whitelist the new IP address. A PUBLIC-facing PBX also provides free SIP URI connectivity to users of your PBX by anyone from anywhere in the world. In other words,… 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 ›

Today we’re pleased to introduce an updated OpenSIPS installer for Debian 10 featuring the latest release of OpenSIPS. Our previous tutorial with Debian 8 is now obsolete, an all-too-frequent occurrence in the open source world. Today’s open source SIP server lets you connect users to make and receive free as well as commercial calls worldwide. There’s excellent documentation making it easy to integrate into our existing Incredible PBX platform without hiring a consultant. It’s also straight-forward to secure without providing… Read More ›
