  • I had not heard of this one. I will not recommend it over FreePBX because of the closed source nature of it.

    I will likely install it and test it out at some point though.

    The Asterisk world has been waiting for a good open source platform that looks like this. I have looked at other solutions in the past that look really nice, but I will not trust a closed source solution over an open source one. Not in today's world. There are just too many security risks.

    Wazo is supposed to be moving their interface into something really nice.



  • Appears to be fully free. Which is great. But as Jared said, I don't see any code. Interface looks nifty, though.



  • There it is...

    What license does Ombutel have?

    Ombutel software is offered with commercial license. It means you can use it for free, but not get the source code, make changes to it or reverse engineer it in any way.



  • I do agree with your comment about it being closed source, the interface looks nice though and it seems to have all the features available without any limitations.

    Does look nice in the pics, that's for sure.

    Right, and closed source is just too risky when open source options exists. If there was no open source solution available, a free closed source solution can be a very good solution. This is just not the case in the PBX market.

    We have no way to know how secure this code is from various known vulnerabilities or anything else.



  • @jaredbusch are you planning to stay with Freepbx for the foreseeable future, or are you looking at other options?

    For the current time yes.

    FusionPBX is nice, but not something I would be comfortable turning up for a client and walking away from, the work would be nice, but I do not try to force a client to be dependent on us.

    Issabel is just not ready for production yet.

    Wazo is in the same state as FusionPBX. Not something I would turn a client loose on, but great for someone like us that knows PBX systems.



  • I do like FusionPBX, I didn't have any major issues with it just that the hardware phone was playing up, it looked like to be a NAT issue. although I didn't have any issues with the phone using 3CX.



  • I'm with Jared, I'm willing to look at things, but moving away from solid, dependable FreePBX is hard to do until some of these other products mature a bit.



  • What Linux distro is ombutel using?
    FreePBX is using CentOS.
    FusionPBX is using Debian.

    They use CentOS 7.

  • Hi,

    Ombutel is completely free without limitations, already has more than two years in production environments with excellent results, currently working on version 2.0 which will bring many surprises.



  • I took a look at the site to see if this was something I might want to poke around with but it doesn't inspire a lot of confidence when half the links on the site are dead. The website template still contains some of the "Lorem ipsum" text from the original template designer.



  • I did try it, but I’ve stayed with fusion pbx for now.



  • Hi NashBrydges:

    We agree with you, since Telesoft took full control of the Ombutel project, we have been making important improvements, one of which is the website and also the name of the project. We invite you to visit our new website (not yet finished), where you can see that the new version 2.0 of Ombutel (VitalPBX 2.0), this version will be available in December this year. vitalpbx.org



  • @rcuadra will you be incorporating different templates for various phone manufacturers like snom? I did not see these when I tried the pbx
