New project to create a standard GUI for Unified Communications

Guayaquil, Ecuador, May 4th 2015 – PaloSanto Solutions, the company behind the Elastix Project, has established today a GIT repository for the development of a distro agnostic GUI -like Ubuntu, Debian, Red Hat, and others- for unified communications servers. Additionally it conceives multi-tenancy.

The project will be independent and will start off with the multi-tenant GUI from Elastix MT. Currently this development is focused on using Asterisk® as the telephony manager at its core, however, the project seeks to establish the basis for the inclusion of other projects that currently exist in the industry like FreeSWITCH.

This project will be initially hosted and moderated by PaloSanto Solutions; it is an idea together with the PBX in a Flash team.

The current market for open source does not present many similar options and many are limited only to Asterisk® without native support for multi-tenancy, such as FreePBX®.

“We believe that by using Elastix GUI to kick off the project will help in assimilating it faster”, said PBX in a Flash’s CEO, Ward Mundy. “PaloSanto Solutions’ decision to create a GIT repo for development cooperation is also important because it will attract new actors to the project that will enhance its functionality”, he added.

“Since the release of Elastix MT we believed that there is the possibility to continue revolutionizing unified communications, and to establish tools that had not been integrated before”. Said Edgar Landivar, CEO of Elastix. “With the establishment of this repo we hope to establish a standard in the industry that will replace the concept of VoIP PBX”, he concluded.

The project is available today at, and rules are being set regarding contributions to the development so that all interested people can join immediately.
