"The Zero Cost PBX"

While the Asterisk PBX is a free download, its associated hardware costs add up to quite a bit. RAGU patches AsteriskGUI to use realtime (databases) for maximum flexibility, sets up Asterisk to work virtualized so you need no new server hardware, gives it VoIP trunks so you need no hardware/cards for PSTN lines and integrates it with a browser based flash phone and wifi enabled mobile phones so you need no special hardware for extensions. This gives you a zero cost setup, a fast start and a better PBX. You can always add hardware later if you need, but once you get comfortable with OwnPages, you may not want to.
