Easy Install?
(Complete CD, with Linux and FreePBX)

The easiest way to install FreePBX is to download one of our ISOs, burn it to a CD, and then boot your system off the ISO. Your system will then reformat the disk, and upon completion, you will have a fully functioning FreePBX Distro ready to configure your phones and trunks.

Streamlined and Secure
We’ve watched the FreePBX space develop with many different flavors of distros that each add their varying personalities and extras. At FreePBX we’ve focused on Security and a Streamlined System that is supported by the same team who brings you the core application.

A Winning Team!
Our community has been asking us for years to provide a full out distro in addition to the great FreePBX project we’ve been delivering for years so we finally delivered the first Official FreePBX Distro.

Getting Started Guides…
There is some great documentation on installing, configuring and keeping you FreePBX Distro system updated. Installing the FreePBX Distro, Keeping your system Updated and Initial Setup Guide.

FreePBX Market Place
Outside of all the open source modules and add-ons available for FreePBX, there is a wealth of optional but powerful commercial modules available, with other developers looking to do more. The FreePBX Distro is leading the way in enabling a platform to readily provide these solutions to a large community of professionals. The Market Place gives developers opportunities to do even more for this great ecosystem.

Training & Certification
We have been offering great training programs for FreePBX through the Sangoma’s Getting Started Technical Training program. The introduction of the Distro and further standardization at the system level will be opening the doors to further develop the training programs available and a real certification and partner program that will go way beyond fancy certificates and titles. Stay tuned as we roll this out and bring you more information!
