May 05, 2011

 


VoIP products are at the forefront of Sippy Software Inc.’s cost-effective communications offerings.

Founded in 2004, Sippy Software’s technology powers hundreds of VoIP providers globally, providing Internet Telephony (News - Alert) operators with the reliability, scalability and security required to compete in a changing and challenging market.

Sippy Software’s flagship offering is its Sippy Softswitch 2.0 platform -- a version that was released in April of 2010. This version arrived only months after version 1.9, which was announced in January of 2010, indicating the company is continuously improving its software.

Sippy Softswitch is a call-control software package that enables service providers to build scalable and reliable VoIP networks. Based on Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) (SIP), it offers call-routing capabilities to maximize performance for both small and large packet voice networks.

A complete carrier-grade SIP softswitch solution and customer management platform, Sippy Softswitch provides the functionality necessary to quickly launch internet telephony business in addition to high-performance switching capabilities.

From subscriber self sign-up, to billing and ongoing customer support, the software supports multi-tier wholesale business models and features built-in IVR server for offering calling card and callback services. 2.0 also brings with it hosted environment support. Each environment acts as, and has "look and feel" of a stand-alone softswitch and supports all of the features.

Sippy Software 1.9 brought six new features whereas 2.0 added an additional eleven attractive features, such as PDF invoice generation, local calling rates and support and simplified configuration for on-net calling. On-net calling also includes voicemail configuration.

For those who don't want to run their own hardware, there are number of software-as-a-service (SaS) hosting plans. Softswitch-as-a-Service is a cost-e?ective way to license SIP switching software. Instead of incurring hardware management and software maintenance expenses and substantial up-front investments, businesses can simply rent a fully maintained solution hosted in state-of-the-art data centers.

Sippy Software's voip switch supports a wide range of business scenarios. From Vonage (News - Alert)-like retail operations, calling cards and callback services to wholesale VoIP termination and hosted call shops.

VoIP.com is one of Sippy Software’s success stories. Sippy improved and optimized the company's existing SIP network to accommodate rapid growth in its customer base and provided a foundation for further expansion. A privately-held corporation based in Boca Raton, Fla., VoIP.com was one of the first players in the U.S. residential VoIP market.

"From consultation to implementation to ongoing support, Sippy Soft is the platform we use and recommend 100 percent,” said Martin Toha, CEO, VoIP.com.

Basic licenses are available at prices starting at US$6,900 per server, which includes license cost, installation/configuration cost and a 12-month support and maintenance contract.
