Let me introduce the SIPfoundry / Connecter team

Starting last summer we began putting a lot of effort into revamping our Web site and our infrastructure. Our goal was to improve visibility for the SIPfoundry brand and implement the marketing […]

Why SIPfoundry decided to offer support

Topics: Announcements / Features and products

Our users and partners told us again and again that support is critical for the production deployment of an open source solution like sipXecs. We agree and that is why we decided to offer professional support for our sipXecs platform going forward.

Up until now we mainly relied on a commercial offering from our partner eZuce. An estimated 10% of the sipXecs installed base benefits from it and I heard it many times that the quality of the support and the team at eZuce are great. However, we think we can do much better and offer support to many more of you who are using sipXecs in production today. Purchasing support through eZuce requires a transition to a commercial edition, openUC, which many of you told us is contrary to the idea of deploying an open source solution. The SIPfoundry support offering combines the best of both worlds: it gives you an open source solution that meets all the criteria for production deployment, and without having to switch to another product after the initial testing and evaluation.

Private Communications as a Service (CaaS) stands for Security

Topics: Industry trends

Is there a difference between private and public CaaS?  To us private CaaS (Communications as a Service) stands for security. Moving into the cloud and subscribing to a hosted service for communications significantly affects an organization’s security assumptions as it greatly enlarges the security perimeter. Shared access, or multi-tenancy, is one of the key tenets […]

Still using a Broadsoft based or other carrier grade multi-tenant capable UC solution to produce VoIP in the cloud?
