Amp is now FreePBX

Those of you who use Asterisk@Home, I’m sure that by now you’re familiar with having a GUI at your fingertips. There are those of us however, who have not had the luxury of a GUI and all the good ones were pay only… which sucked. HOWEVER, now, AMP’s creator, Coalescent Systems, has released FreePBX, which I think is mainly just a title change. So if you didn’t know about this free one, here it is folks!

FreePBX is webbased, thus you will need a web server installed, and as always, Apache is reccomended. The FreePBX wiki lists these as it’s highlights.

– Add or change extension and voicemail accounts in seconds
– Native support of SIP, IAX, and ZAP clients (other endpoints are supported through custom extensions)
– Supports all Asterisk supported trunk technologies
– Reduce long distance costs with LCR
– Route incoming calls based on time-of-day
– Create interactive Digital Receptionist (IVR) menus
– Design sophisticated call groups
– Manage callers with Queues
– Upload custom on-hold music (MOH)
– Search company directory, based on first or last name
– Detect and receive incoming faxes
– Share administrative duties
– Backup and Restore your system
– Save audio recordings of calls
– View call detail reporting with asterisk-stat
– View extension and trunk status with Flash Operator Panel
– View conversation recordings with Asterisk Recording Interface (ARI)
– Spanish translation provided by Fernando M. Villares Ter?n

I feel that I need to start from scratch on my Asterisk Box, so I will be installing Knoppix on there and then once Asterisk is installed, I will be trying out FreePBX, which seems very very promising. So check it out guys.
