Creation of PJSIP extensions, added to the extensions module is the creation of PJSIP extensions, which is the evolution of SIP .Total overhaul of the Dashboard, in version 1.x of Ombutel there were many issues with the Dashboard, many times the graphics would distort and the data wasn’t exact.With VitalPBX 2.0 the Dashboard was changed completely, solving these problems and adding new information and functionality.

PJSIP

This feature is controlled in the  PBX User Panel.
The PA (Personal Assistant)  allows for advanced control of a user’s voicemail system. It is somewhat similar to the Follow Me feature; however it gives callers more control. In essence, the PA is a mini-IVR (interactive voice response) for voicemail.

When a caller reaches a user’s PA, they are presented with a recorded message. This message would indicate to them that there are options in addition to simply leaving a message. Typically, PA voicemails would give callers the option of leaving a message OR attempting to contact the intended party. PA can be configured to work with ‘unavailable’ and/or ‘busy’ voicemails.

For example, a caller reaches your voicemail, and is given the option to: press 1 to call your mobile, press 2 to reach the Florida office, press 0 to reach reception, or leave a message. This ensures that the caller is able to contact an appropriate party should they want to, or simply leave a message.

With VitalPBX you can have multiple devices connected to a single extension number, for example John Smith has the extension 2000 which has connected several devices like Desktop Phone, Mobile Phone and a Sofphone installed in his computer, all these devices have the same extension number and when someone calls John, he will have the possibility to answer the call in any of the three devices. You can also manage from any of the devices call diversions, DND, follow me, voice mail, etc.

The ideal password is between 12 to 14 characters long, with a mixture of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and special characters. But many users tend to use weak passwords since they’re easier to remember. The problem is, weak passwords are an open invitation for hackers to exploit user accounts and gain access to the corporate network.

VitalPBX comes with a tool to detect Weak Password which will help you to detect this type of password.

Video Conference, we included a module for video conferencing, with which you can realize a video conference with limitless multiple users. You will also be able to share your desktop, with a chat also included. All of this for free.
