News: 50 open source apps rolled into one server

Note: Here comes one of the first of many all-in-one boxes that will include Asterisk. Enjoy!

Portugal may not be well known as an IT hotbed, but it's the source of edgeBOX, the latest entrant into the increasingly competitive business gateway market. With a starting price of £1500 for a 20 user system, edgeBOX rolls some 50 open source apps plus proprietary management tools into an all-in-one device aimed at smaller businesses and the service providers who sell to them.

The company behind it, Critical Software, claims that the device does everything a business might need, from a wireless router, through web, e-mail and DNS/DHCP services, to IP telephony - it includes the Asterisk IP PBX. It's also a firewall with VPN, authentication and anti-spam/anti-virus capabilities, all on a Linux base, of course.
