FusionPBX Will Be My Default Choice From Now On
I just did my first install of FusionPBX a few days ago. All my prior background has been in the Asterisk/FreePBX community. But my introduction to the freeSWITCH/FusionPBX community has been a very pleasant one. The change does include a small learning curve, but the advantages far out way the effort required to learn the new platform. Suddenly a lot of prior headaches and work arounds are gone. The install is painless and simple compared to FreePBX. And after it is installed it works! This is especially note worthy if you are used to trying to get everything working with FreePBX on a VPS. This worked perfect on a VPS.
Now for the more practical end of things. I found the features and functionality of FusionPBX to be very comprehensive. The monitoring and control you have over active calls is second to none. And unlike most GUI's you do not need to sacrifice functionality for the use of a GUI. With the dial plan manager you can easily add almost any custom dial plan that you could by editing the xml directly. And as if that is not enough, there is a built in editor for all the xml and config files.
The support for this project is also noteworthy. The folks on IRC actually respond, and it is quite easy to get direct access to the lead developer himself.
Hope that helps. And I highly encourage you to give FusionPBX a try.
Amazingly fast to get up and running, but equipped with very powerful functionality as well
I came from a Trixbox background. I had experienced limitations with the Trixbox solution and was looking for an alternative when I found FusionPBX. The first thing that amazed me was how simple and speedy it was to get a working phone system up and running with FusionPBX - far simpler than Trixbox. But then I started to discover how much advanced functionality was also available, and how extensible the design is - in my opinion it is far easier to script for FusionPBX than to script for Trixbox if you want to add additional functionality of your own. FusionPBX is clearly a well thought through design, built on a very solid underlying soft switch (FreeSWITCH) - for me that makes it the system of choice.
