With the almost overnight popularity of the new Clearly Anywhere softphone which provides Incredible PBX connectivity from virtually anywhere, we wanted to add a missing piece to our Incredible PBX 2021 release. Because softphones need connectivity on both cellular networks and using Wi-Fi with dynamic IP addresses in multiple locations, exclusive whitelist-based access to Incredible PBX platforms simply was no longer feasible. Additionally, due to Clearly Anywhere’s tight integration with the FreePBX® User Control Panel (UCP), remote access to UCP… Read More ›

But IBM’s decimation of the CentOS project last week was just the motivation we needed to begin exploring alternatives for the Incredible PBX project. 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 ›

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 ›
