VoIP Switch - VoIP Switches and How They Can Improve Business Communications

April 03, 2012


A VoIP switch also referred to as a softswitch, is a crucial device within a telecommunications network that connects multiple IP networks to power end-to-end VoIP communications. Some of the most important features of this device are the secure connections it provides for both customers and providers, smart call routing and cost-effective control of VoIP calls.

As VoIP providers are continuously tasked with the responsibility of meeting increasing demands as new voice services are introduced to the market, Sippy Software offers several SIP-centric products which assist VoIP providers in providing their customers with the most feature intensive service currently on the market.

Founded in 2004, the company powers a complete carrier-grade VoIP switch solution and customer management platform which offers the functionality necessary to quickly launch an internet telephony business, in addition to high-performance switching capabilities.

In today’s market, service providers sometimes are forced to overcome multiple challenges associated with getting their VoIP network up and running and luckily, this VoIP switch provider completely eliminates the hardware and software costs typically attributed to managing these networks.

 Maksym Sobolyev, CEO of Sippy Software told TMCnet, “And this is not about initial cost, but also about ongoing maintenance cost. With our hosted plans one can start business with just $145/mo. Of course you also need a termination, and we would probably introduce some plans with minutes included to address this soon. And our plans can be scaled up and down on demand.”

With a belief that open source and open standards is where the telecoms industry is headed in the near future, the company’s platform offers a high degree of reliability, as well as clustering, load balancing, HA, management and monitoring features that are crucial for a high level of quality.

Additionally, Sippy Software's VoIP switch boasts the ability to fully support and manage multiple business scenarios from Vonage (News - Alert) type retail operations, calling cards and callback services to wholesale VoIP termination and hosted call shops.

Catering to multiple types of clients including residential home users to business clients, the VoIP Switch provider has exactly what everyone needs to improve communication channels with customers, thus ultimately driving revenue.
