Sangoma Merging Proprietary Code Cripples GPL Module

Sangoma Merging Proprietary Code Cripples GPL Module

What some of us feared with Sangoma’s acquisition of Asterisk® and FreePBX® is now coming to pass with the departure of almost the entire previous FreePBX development team. New Sangoma staff are "fixing" outstanding FreePBX software bugs in GPL code by merging in proprietary, non-GPL code. In addition to violating the spirit of the GPL,1 it also has immediate consequences for those using Linux platforms other than CentOS since the proprietary code and Zend Guard won’t run under Debian, Ubuntu,… Read More ›

Asterisk® 13 will be 6 years old this October. That’s like three lifetimes in VoIP years. So let’s face it. It’s time to start making plans to move on up. The latest LTS version is Asterisk 16 which gets you another 4+ years with security fixes. We won’t dwell on the shortcomings of PJsip in Asterisk 13 and the fact that chanSIP is getting long in the tooth. So the sooner you migrate the better off you will be. Thanks… Read More ›

F-O-R-K? A Few Thoughts on the Sangoma Employee Exodus

F-O-R-K? A Few Thoughts on the Sangoma Employee Exodus

Friday, April 26, 2019

Full Disclosure: We’re not exactly big fans of Sangoma® and their stewardship of the Asterisk® and FreePBX® projects. So read our commentary with a grain of salt or two. As we predicted when Sangoma purchased Digium®, the employee exodus has begun. The biggest surprise is that a disturbing number of the departures are from the FreePBX SchmoozeCom operation including two of its founding partners: Tony Lewis, the soon-to-be former Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Sangoma, and Brian Walters who has… Read More ›

Not that you needed another reason to sign up for Skyetel’s triple-redundant SIP hosting platform, but we have a new one for you anyway. A fault-tolerant VoIP platform always has been the Holy Grail for many organizations. When your business depends on telephone calls, the very last thing you want to fail is your phone system. When most administrators think of fault-tolerant, high availability (HA) servers, the first word that comes to mind is expensive. For example, FreePBX® charges $1500/node… Read More ›
