Since January 2017, GeekLabs and friends have been building ring-u, a auto-configuring small business phone system that uses several commonly available VoIP/SIP phones. Soft-launch was September 15th, 2017. That's 9 months from "do this thing" to hardware and software designed, built and in-stock. It's currently using a couple of "Tier 1" back end telecom providers for actual service delivery, but makes using complex internet telephony technologies very simple. The plan: build a sustainable profitable business.
March 2020 update: Serving happy customers in more than 40 states, plan worked.

"MGB" EndpointsThe client calls them MGB's - Mike's Geek Boxes. Leveraging OpenVPN, Embedded Arm Computers (Libre Computing Renegade's), Debian for Arm, and an advanced version of "Kitty" for GPIO control, these allow remote monitoring, diagnostic and use of medical imaging devices including CT and MRI scanners.
