Here’s a recent video that explains more about …
We’re proud to announce that VoIP Supply is now a Xorcom Certified Dealer for Complete PBX Solutions.
Thanks to Michael Taylor (pictured above) our VoIP Engineer putting in all the hard work at the Xorcom technical training class.
We’re not sure what was harder for him the three days of in-depth training to learn all the details of Xorcom PBX installation, programming, and troubleshooting or being able to avoid all the distractions of the class location, Las Vegas.
If you’re not familiar with Xorcom the company was founded in 2004 and they focus on business telephony solutions for both VoIP and traditional PSTN. Xorcom products are based on Asterisk®, the open-source communication software used worldwide, for a flexible range of PBX solutions.

What Is It?
The Elastix ELX-025 is a 1U PBX appliance which can be used as a total UC solution for small and medium businesses. The ELX-025 appliance runs Elastix software, which is a distribution of Asterisk, the free open source PBX software. The Elastix ELX-025 ideally will support up to 100 extensions and 30 concurrent calls.
What Does It Do?
What doesn’t it do? The Elastix ELX-025 is truly a “Unified Communication system”. We hear the UC buzzword everywhere but how many of those solutions labeled UC are really all encompassing of all the ways we communicate? The Elastix platform is.
IP PBX: Embedded into the Elastix system, which is ready for use right out of the box on the ELX-025, is obviously an …
Throughout the month, I have been conducting a series of reviews of our most popular IP PBX’s. I spoke about 3CX, the Windows-based IP PBX software that entered into the arena in 2008 and is quickly growing. I also mentioned Elastix, which is an Asterisk-based platform that is still purely open-sourced which has been quickly gaining popularity, especially among the budget-conscious crowd. The capstone of my review is Switchvox by Digium. Switchvox, like Elastix, is an Asterisk-based platform which was developed by Four Loop Technologies and perfected by Digium in 2007.
Switchvox is a commercial version of Asterisk, so the source code is no longer open. Switchvox offers a polished, clean, and professional packaging of Asterisk amazement. VoIP Supply uses Switchvox as our…
Starting September 1st, Digium will be changing the way Switchvox is sold.
In the past when you have been quoted for a new Switchvox UC system, your quote included a Switchvox appliance, complete UC package, and licensing for 10 users at the Silver level.
Beginning September 1st, the appliance and the UC package will no longer be bundled with 10 users and phone feature packs.
Why the Change?…
Nobody likes being told that if they want to use “x” phone system they have to use “x” phones. When a decision maker hears that they have no choice in what phones they use, they seem to want a different type of phone just out of spite. It’s like going to a restaurant and seeing the words “No Substitutions” on the menu…
Luckily, Switchvox by Digium is an open sourced platform with an Asterisk core which allows you to use just about any SIP phone that will work with Asterisk. However, for people who breathe a little easier when their entire solution is single-branded, now Digium offers their own brand of phone that works seemlessly with Switchvox (and any other Asterisk deployment, too, but here …
