Item description for TrixBox Made Easy by Barrie Dempster...

Learn how to set up and use TrixBox (formally known as Asterisk@Home) as a traditional and Internet telephone system. The book is written in an easy to follow walk-through style, building up concepts step by step, before guiding you carefully through the planning, deployment, and management of your telephone system.

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.

Contents Summary
Chapter 1 introduces the essential telephony and IP telephony concepts to give the reader the necessary background.
Chapter 2 gives an overview of Asterisk the PBX software at the core of TrixBox and gives the reader a feel for the features of a powerful VoIP telephone system.
Chapter 3 explains the relationship between Asterisk and TrixBox and introduces the enhancements and power the combination of these tools provides.
Chapter 4 walks the user through planning a telephone system with accompanying spreadsheets to fill in, in order to properly plan for the installation and configuration of the system.
Chapter 5 gives the reader details on how to install TrixBox and how the basic administration components are used.
Chapter 6 applies the previous planning to the configuration of TrixBox to provide the features the reader requires from their telephone system.
Chapter 7 covers the telephone system from the point of view of the telephone handset and how the user of the telephone system can interact with it.
Chapter 8 looks at more advanced configuration options and differing types of telephone line that can be managed with TrixBox.
Chapter 9 briefly introduces the SugarCRM customer relationship management tool, integrated with TrixBox.
Chapter 10 shows the reader how to secure and backup TrixBox to ensure reliability of their system.
Appendix A has some acronyms and terms used throughout this book, which are also common terms in Telephony. This can be used as a quick reference to the terms when reading the book or configuring the TrixBox system

The book is incremental and structured in its approach. It starts by clearly describing the basics of PBX systems and of Asterisk itself, on which Trixbox is based. Then the book explains how TrixBox links to, and controls Asterisk. Once the core concepts are understood, the book carefully takes you through each stage of setting up and managing your VoIP system with an abundance of screenshots for easy implementation.

Because the book covers the concepts and practices of both telephony and Asterisk, it is suitable for both professional and home users with no prior telecom experience. It's ideal for any user wishing to set up a telephony system for individual or small business usage. No previous knowledge of Trixbox or networking is required, although some basic knowledge of PBX and Linux would be an advantage.

Reviews - What do customers think about TrixBox Made Easy?

Well Done!  Sep 15, 2007
This is a complete guide for newbies starting out with Trixbox CE and for a good reference guide for oldtimers, too!

I have been playing Trixbox for sometime and see a lot of things I have been missing that are actually found in this guide!

Special thanks Kerry G!

a little too basic  May 7, 2007
I know the book is for noobs, but i think anyone who is looking at trixbox has at least googled and read about it enough to know everything that's covered in this book. the book is really good to give to someone who knows nothing about trixbox/asterisk though, and you want them to get a basic idea of what's involved.
 
Review of Trixbox made Easy  Mar 9, 2007
Very good for the first timer, it will answer your questions, it will point you to good websites for further research, it will allow you to get your first Trixbox system up and running.

Could use some fleshing out of the Index and I had some questions that weren't answered. Like how to create new password for FreePBX.
 
Good starting point  Mar 5, 2007
This is a good basic overview of Trixbox and Asterisk. It goes over installing Linux and Trixbox and setting up the system. The book explains all the different settings and configuration screens. My only fault with this book is that is only explains basic details of settings without giving particular examples and in-depth detail of the settings. I've been fiddling around with Trixbox and Asterisk for a few weeks before reading this book and didn't learn much more from this book. If you're new to Trixbox this book is a good starting point.
 
Fun is on the way!   Nov 16, 2006
I am not a Linux Guru, and I only have a few weeks working with telephony. I found this book to be incredible. I read "Trixbox Without Tears" it was helpful, but found this to be much more comprehensive and well rounded. Easy reading for anyone new to the field like myself. SO if you are interested in a new adventure! Download the ISO image and buy the book, fun is on the way!
