trixbox for the Community
Beginning in 2004 as Asterisk@Home, the trixbox® Community Edition (CE) telephony application platform is the open source software that has quickly become the most popular Asterisk®-based distribution in the world. trixbox CE combines the best of the open source telephony tools into one easy-to-install package, along with the trixbox dashboard which provides a web-based interface to configure and manage a complete IP-PBX system. The most flexible and customizable communications platform available, trixbox CE averages over 65,000 downloads a month.
Why use trixbox CE?
trixbox CE is the most flexible PBX system available today. If you need a highly customized solution and the trixbox Pro hybrid-hosted architecture is unfitting, use trixbox CE. Not only does trixbox CE allow you to build your own custom features and modules, but you can rely upon the community to help as well. The trixbox community is one of the largest and most active communities of trixbox and Asterisk users in the world. The members of this community work every day to help each other answer questions, resolve issues, fix bugs, make enhancements, and develop projects. trixbox CE has all the benefits of open source plus a commercial company standing behind it.
