Sangoma, a trusted leader in value-based Unified Communication phone systems, has announced at Astricon the next major releases –  Asterisk 16 and FreePBX 15.

Sangoma also announced that it is prioritising integrating its products with both open source projects e.g. FreePBX EndPoint Manager and Phone Apps are now free for Digium D-Series IP Phones. This will be cost saving for many FreePBX users as well as allowing access to more product options.

I’d like to take this opportunity to assure the community of our commitment to these critical open source projects that mean so much to the communications world. I hope that the major releases of both Asterisk 16 and FreePBX 15 demonstrate that we are already actively delivering even more innovation that will further enhance the missions of the two projects and their value to the communities

Asterisk 16

Developers have been able to build more robust, feature-rich solutions to improve performance and flexibility to end-users. Asterisk 16 improves video conferencing performance, SIP call-handling in high volume scenarios and offer a new text-based messaging feature. Asterisk 16 also includes support for Enhanced Messaging, giving developers the tools to build rich client applications with text-based data exchanges.    

FreePBX 15

Delivers more flexible software that is now even easier to use and maintain. It features a new built-in API to enable easier integration and a redesigned backup and restore process for more flexible system maintenance. The new API is powered by GraphQL, making it easier to integrate FreePBX with third-party applications and enabling users to create more efficient business workflows and processes.
