More Devices

The Asterisk for Raspberry Pi project is celebrating it’s first anniversary today. One year ago, shortly after the first RPis have been shipped, this project site published the first complete image with Asterisk and FreePBX.
Since then, the RPi itself has become a big success story, making it the most popular low-cost single board computer of today with more than 1 million units shipped in less than a year.
With so much success, the competition is of course not far away. From all the similar boards available, only the recently announced BeagleBone Black comes close to the RPi. It is slightly more expensive, but features more powerful hardware. RasPBX has already been ported to this hardware, you can find all the details at the spin-off website From now on, RasPBX will be supported on both platforms. If your hardware has not been ordered yet, the BeagleBone Black is definitely an alternative worth considering.

  1. Congrats!
    The PRi and your project have allowed my globally scattered family to stay in touch for free using remote extensions. Having remote SIP providers has allowed us to make local calls to others in the area at a next-to-nothing cost 🙂

    Thanks again!
