What is FreePBX?

FreePBX makes it easy to create custom telephony solutions by automatically installing the "plumbing".  It's a complete Linux distribution with Asterisk, the DAHDI driver framework, and, the FreePBX administrative GUI.  Much of the complexity of Asterisk and Linux is handled by the installer, the yum package management utility and the administrative GUI.  With the FreePBX download, application developers and integrators can concentrate on building solutions, not maintaining the plumbing.

Who is it for?

FreePBX was built for application developers, systems integrators, students, hackers and others who want to create custom solutions with Asterisk.  It is freely available for use at home, at school or at work. For a commercially supported IP PBX built on Asterisk, take a look at Switchvox.

Who Supports FreePBX?

There is an active community of FreePBX users, integrators, and developers who provide community support for FreePBX forums.
