We are building a highly innovative framework that integrates Drupal sites with touch tone phones, SMS and Internet-telephony systems.
Our goal is to create a voice-over-internet-protocol (VoIP) platform that interoperates with existing VoIP PBX implementations (Asterisk, FreeSwitch, Tropo, Twilio and others) to provide Drupal users with the ability to, among other things:
* Record, send and receive audio messages
* Create and manage audio groups
* Add audio events to a shared calendar
* Organize phone-based polls
* Send meeting reminders
* Collect stories
* Broadcast emergency announcements
* And much more!
VoIP Drupal will change the way you interact with Drupal, your phone and the web! Join our LinkedIn group and learn more about VoIP Drupal at the VoIP Drupal project page, the VoIP Drupal Handbook and the demo site.
If you have any pressing questions, please leave them here or get online support at #drupal-voip (FreeNode IRC). Our IRC Office Hours are usually on Wednesdays @ Noon EST.
The VoIP Drupal team
We are implementing a major change in the current structure of the VoIP Number module (http://drupal.org/project/voipnumber). As part of that, we are wondering how important it would be to implement a script to convert existing VoIP Number instances to the new format.
If you are a "heavy" VoIP Number user, please let us know ASAP. We will only implement the conversion script if that's necessary, ok?

This was an active weekend for the VoIP Drupal community from around the world!
Among other things, our colleague Arijit Dutta kept the audience on their feet with his "Roller-coasting VoIP with Drupal" presentation and hands-on session at DrupalCamp Delhi 2012 (http://bit.ly/T3jT59).Read more
We are gearing up for an initial gathering in the Twin Cities based on this interest - http://groups.drupal.org/node/251383 - and I'd like to point people toward VOIP Drupal - http://groups.drupal.org/voip-drupal - implementations connecting small groups of people in two-way communication.Read more

Great news! We have been selected to present VoIP Drupal at the upcoming TwilioCon 2012 (http://www.twilio.com/conference) in San Francisco! Our session is going to be on Thursday, October 18, at 2:20pm (http://bit.ly/SpTPSJ).
To make things even better, Twilio is offering 20% discount in the admission price for everyone who registers with the following special code: Drupal20!
TwilioCon is a key event for everyone interested in the future of Internet telephony. Looking forward to seeing you there,
we are in very early stages of looking to use VOIP & Drupal. We have used sms_framework before and that works quite well for our SMS requirements.
One of the local providers in our country provides a (simplified) VoiceXML interface. That seems to be the W3C standard for voice applications, and is supported by asterisk & freeswitch.
Is there any experience here working with VoiceXML? Would it be possible to write a plugin (like the trillio plugin) for VoiceXML. Are others thinking in the same direction?
I am using the Drupal 7 version and cannot figure out if there is a way to send simple SMS messages using either tropo or twilio. I can send an SMS message from a call but just want the ability to send SMS directly.Read more
I am looking for Drupal folks interested in experimenting with Drupal to connect the neighbors on their own block. (or two)
At a minimum, E-Democracy.org can provide pizza and beer for those interested in a little hack event to put together some tools.
In addition to the latest social media, we are interested in ideas and tools about how to reach people on urgent matters via text as well as DrupalVOIP options to reaching elderly neighbors with voicemail calls.
The hack event would be a couple of months from now in St. Paul or Minneapolis.
REV- (http://www.rev-it.org/), a New York-based non-profit organization that furthers socially-engaged art, design, and pedagogy, seeks a VoIP Drupal Developer to work on a contract basis starting ASAP. The goal of this developer is to continue development on 'New Day New Standard,' an interactive public art “nanny hotline” that informs domestic workers and their employers about the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights that passed in Fall 2010.Read more
I have been immersing myself in VoIP Drupal and coming to the conclusion that I may not be fully grasping the power of this package.
Could someone give me a concrete idea about what VoIP Number, as a CCK field, can do? I understand in general that it can store numbers, but what does that mean in practice? Is this a way for, for example, linking VoIP to CiviCRM for surveys, and/or is it possible to do other things with it?
Thanks in advance for thoughts, answers, or other feedback.Read more
I will be running a session about VoIP Drupal framework at Drupal Camp Jordan in July 14th. For additional information, have a look at:Read more
Last week, I attended the 2012 MIT-Knight Civic Media Conference at the MIT Media Lab and had the opportunity to do a 5-minute "ignite talk" about the What's Up initiative that we are carrying in Wisconsin:
Built on VoIP Drupal (http://drupal.org/project/voipdrupal/), What's Up is a software platform designed to allow people in a small geographic community to share information, plan events and make decisions, using media that is as broadly inclusive as possible.Read more
Good news! The MIT Center for Civic Media has recently granted us some funding to port the VoIP Drupal core modules to Drupal 7!
In fact, as you may have already noticed in the VoIP Drupal issue's queue, the porting is moving full steam forward and should be ready in a couple of days! Whenever you have a chance, please download the latest dev version and help us test the code. The more people we get to help us in this process, the better!Read more
https://wlfriends.org/accounts/login is using a paraphrase over a username and password.
The smart thing about a paraphrase over a username and password is the paraphrase is the key to the encryption so every user uses an unique encryption. just like pgp. This is brilliant i can not believe this was not used 10 years ago for log-ins.Read more
Tamer Zoubi, one of the main developers of the VoIP Drupal platform, will be running a session about VoIP Drupal this weekend at the Drupal Camp Sarajevo 2012. For additional information, have a look at
Good luck, Tamer!
Today the World Bank published a nice blog entry highlighting the use of VoIP Drupal to support good governance, social inclusion and citizen engagement:
That blog was the outcome of a presentation that I did on May 2, 2012 to representatives from the World Bank, IDB and other organizations who work in education, eGovernance and related areas. For slides and additional information about that talk, have a look at: http://go.worldbank.org/XM1D7VZE10
I am starting to create a series of Screencasts for VoIP Drupal modules that work right out of the box. I would love some critical feedback to assure that the Screencasts are helpful and have all the relevant info to allow a novice to follow along and setup a module like Click2Call easily.
I have created a first draft of VoIP Drupal Hands On Experience with CCK and Click2Call.
If you would like to be a part of the test group or help create some new Webinars, Screencasts and Tutorials, please email me - firstname.lastname@example.orgRead more
I will be doing a short DEMO of VoIP Drupal at a meetup on Wednesday the 9th, in Allston - http://www.meetup.com/DrinksOnTap/events/60129652/?gj=ej26a&a=wr1.2_wr3
This will be a very short overview of some of the highlights of VoIP Drupal - an introduction to it and a live demo of the conference call script and the whatsupserver shopping cart.Read more

Cool, eh?Read more
Here is a link to a screencast of the slides used in the
VoIP Drupal Hands On Experience Webinar on April 11th
In this presentation, I demonstrate how to configure VoIP Drupal with Tropo VoIP Service and make a script interact with a phone.
I will also be doing a live Workshop based on this screencast at:
The Drupal Self-Help Group, which meets Thursday, April 19, 2012.
Here are the details:
