VoIP Switch - VoIP Switches Help Companies to See Ongoing Success

 
April 10, 2012

 


You may have heard about VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol,) but do you know what a VoIP switch is? If not, let me educate you.  A VoIP switch is a device that can be utilized to improve communications and allows service providers to create robust networks. Built upon a SIP foundation, this solution offers multiple capabilities including high-performance IVR, highly secure connections with customers, smart call routing and increased cost-effective control of all calls.

Sippy Software offers users a VoIP switch that is a carrier-grade session controller that powers a single platform for many IP networks.

Many companies have already begun to implement this softswitch due to its multiple benefits with VariNet Technologies, a wholesale carrier located in Vancouver, Canada being one of them.

Offering on-site VoIP communications systems, in addition to voice and Internet services specifically tailored to mining companies located all over British Columbia, VariNet was originally in search of a commercially-supported wholesale VoIP softswitch to replace its outdated system that utilized open-source software.

The company decided to implement Sippy Software’s VoIP switch back in 2007, and ever since then the company has had multiple servers running the latest Sippy offerings to meet increasing demands for its growing number of clients. In addition, the twosome is continuously working together to enhance the performance of Sippy Softswitch's feature set by operating a test platform that can show what areas of performance need to be enriched and what is working well.

Ken Thorpe, president, VariNet Technologies, Inc., said in a statement, “We are very pleased with our relationship with Sippy Software. From the outset, they always have provided us with timely support and always welcome our ideas on how the platform can be improved in order to meet the demands of the wholesale carrier market."

VoIP.com, a corporation based in Boca Raton, Fla., has also worked with Sippy Software to enhance the company's existing SIP network and now boasts a state-of-the-art, fixed-phone-line-replacement service for residential users and small offices. Also, network downtime has been cut down significantly and sound quality has risen.

"In the VoIP industry, it's normal to get bombarded with offers from every 'next new company' offering their 'revolutionary' system. We tried expensive solutions, we tried free solutions, and ultimately the solution for us is Sippy Software. From consultation to implementation to ongoing support, Sippy Soft is the platform we use and recommend 100 percent,” Martin Toha, CEO, VoIP.com added.
