New Version of PortaSwitch Available

Canadian-based provider of communications software, PortaOne, Inc. has announced a new release of its flagship VoIP call control and subscriber management platform, the PortaSwitch Maintenance Release 22 (MR22). Current PortaSwitch owners can benefit from the upgrades at no additional fee as the new release available for field testing free of cost.

At the same time, PortaOne (News - Alert) has introduced a new "long-life" designation for sanctioned prior releases of PortaSwitch. "Long-Life" status would be given to the most stable versions of PortaSwitch, which are supported with bug fixes and other software support for an extended period of time. MR22 will be able to obtain “Long Life” status only when it undergoes several consecutive builds.

Equipped with several new enhancements PortaSwitch MR22 is in a position to handle the entire call control and converged VoIP billing functions of a diversified digital services company. The 64-bit Oracle (News - Alert) Enterprise Linux product is equipped with a real-time billing system, class 4 and 5 SIP softswitch, and application servers that deliver converged VoIP billing and provisioning, SIP call control, unified messaging, IP Centrex and hosted IP PBX (News - Alert), callback management, IVRs, conferencing and more.

The new version allows users to trace the origin of forwarded calls. The Visible Call Forwarding feature allows hosted IP PBX users to see the source of forwarded calls. Another enhancement is the doubling of PortaSwitch’s ability to process registration. This feature protects the system from a ‘registration storm.’  The new version also allows iPhone users to playback their voicemails. In addition, a new layer of protection for residential VoIP users, password protection ensures that popular PIN-less dialing services based on outgoing ANI or CLI are not spoofed. Moreover, the solution lets service providers share revenue with their customers who receive credits for incoming calls from other PSTN networks. Last, but not the least, PortaSwitch now interoperates with the WLCom Mobile Communication Client which allow clients to make calls from the iPhone, Android (News - Alert), Blackberry, Symbian and Windows Mobile platforms.

"PortaOne's service goal has always been to keep our customers at the very forefront of the fast-changing VoIP industry. We believe the debut of MR22, as well as our new 'long-term' designation, will provide a comprehensive and powerful development path for any PortaSwitch user," said Andriy Zhylenko (News - Alert), chief technical officer for PortaOne.

Earlier this month, TMCnet reported that Cotadel Networks is driving VoIP bill portioning with PortaSwitch.
