If there was a quirkiest IP phone system award, it would have gone to Elastix.

Elastix IP PBX was well known throughout the open source VoIP arena, and mostly for being the solution for all of your communication needs.

With add-ons, you can also have a CRM, and a Hospitality Management System. Whew!

Clearly, you didn’t have to use everything at once, but it was always confusing to me why they made such an effort to be the one-stop shop.

Issabel Open Source PBX is the reincarnation of Elastix PBX, and it’s more of the same. It’s a proverbial Frankenstein, …

When it comes to Bluetooth connections, one of the biggest concerns most VoIP users have is security. Bluetooth connectivity seems to be a vulnerable point of access that unwanted identity or data theft could get in your system. Can a Bluetooth headset be used without the risk of being eavesdropped? Let’s find out.

Bluetooth security can be divided into three procedures: Pairing, Authentication, and Encryption. This mechanism protects your device from malicious third parties from accessing the data that’s transferred between multiple devices.

 

Bluetooth Security Mechanism

Pairing is the initial setup process that can only be done through physical access to the devices. Once the devices are paired, a secret shared key is stored and will be used for the authentication and encryption processes.

When it comes to the world of IT, everyone knows that it is forever changing, and always at a very fast pace. This can sometimes make it hard to keep up, especially when you are dealing with an ever-growing server room.

There are all sorts of downfalls when it comes to having and maintaining a server room. The accruing mess and the high operation costs are just a couple examples, but those alone are enough to start looking for an alternative.
