FreePBX: Web-Based Manager for Asterisk

FreePBX is a free software PBX (Private Branch eXchange) that makes managing an Asterisk installation less of an hassle. It is the user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) used in a number of IP/PBX Linux distributions including Elastix, and AsteriskNOW.

FreePBX is Open Source, and it is developed by Atengo LLC. Some of the functionalities provided by FreePBX – out-of-the-box – are:

  • Unlimited number of Voicemail boxes
  • “Follow Me” functionality
  • Ring Groups with calls confirmation (so if, eg, a cellphone is out of range and diverts to voicemail, all the other phones keep ringing)
  • Unlimited number of Conferences (limited by available CPU power – about 300 simultaneous users in conferences on a P4 3ghz – 600 with a dual core!)
  • Paging and Intercom functionality for man SIP phones that support it
  • Music on Hold (via MP3s, or streamed off the internet)
  • Call Queues
