SkypeJi, an open/free/libre PBX solution based on VoIP software Skype

I guess PBX and Skype got your attention. Well, in its true sense it is not a PBX, as it does not support any telephony interfaces and protocols. It is primarily a tool to manage multiple Skype users through a common web interface, using Skype APIs, thus creating a PBX like solution.

Functional Objectives

- Administration
o Manage User Accounts
o Manage Contact List
o Manage User Classes

- End User
o Check User's availability Status
o Make/Receive Calls
o Leave/Check Voice Mail

It is based on open architecture, thus making it easy to integrate with any other applications like Intranet Portals, CRMs, Group Collaboration softwares etc.

For further details checkout

First alpha release is scheduled for July 13th, 2005

TechWeb | News | Skype Service Is Blocked In Middle East Country

Now why would you do that?
.... governments go out of their way to "protect" these big corporations so that they don't loose money. doh!
There is no doubt that skype is in this to make money as well, but atleast its giving customers a cheap alternative.
