Overview of this book

TrixBox is a telephone system based on the popular open source Asterisk PBX (Private Branch eXchange) Software. TrixBox allows an individual or organization to setup a telephone system with traditional telephone networks as well as Internet based telephony or VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). SugarCRM can be integrated with Asterisk, and is bundled with Trixbox offering real power and flexibility. The book begins by introducing telephony concepts before detailing how to plan a telephone system and moving on to the installation, configuration, and management of a feature packed PBX. This book is rich with practical examples and tools. It provides examples of well laid out telephone systems with accompanying spreadsheets to aid the reader in building stable telephony infrastructure.

Standard Features


The following sections briefly explain the current list of available features that are standard in TrixBox. While the codes listed are the default setting, they can be modified using the FreePBX Features module. These codes are all used by dialing the number on a phone that is logged into the system by SIP/IAX, or by connecting a traditional phone to a card installed in the system.

Call Forwarding

The call forwarding functions have a lot of capabilities. While some variations don't get much usage, a popular one is the Call Forwarding on No Answer. With this, we could create a multi-tier calling system like those found on high-end systems. If our regular phone doesn't answer, then it could forward the call to a ring group containing alternative numbers such as cell phone numbers and residence numbers.
