A VoIP switch or softswitch is a central device in a telecommunications network designed to deliver voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) services. The session initiation protocol (SIP)-based service delivers robust and cost-effective communications solutions to all types of customers.
In a significant development in the VoIP switch space, Squire Technologies released its latest softswitch upgrade: the SVI Release 11. The carrier-grade Class 5 softswitch (SVI-C5) powers a highly available softswitch architecture, which enables it to become one of the most secure and resilient Class 5 softswitches currently on the market.
The new release includes capabilities such as call forwarding, select call acceptance/rejection, voicemail and voice announcement along with a host of other features.
The company has also included a new session border controller (SBC) feature as part of the new VoIP switch package, which will increase the overall security of the service. With this function, it will address the modern security concerns including denial of service attacks that are becoming an increasing concern for users.
"Class 5 services are all about configuration, and the feedback we've had about the portal has been unilaterally positive in that it allows for straightforward setup of all the services we offer, whilst also allowing our customers to present the portal under their own branding," said Matt Watts, Squire's marketing manager, in a statement.
To deliver further benefits of the VoIP switch technology to customers, Squire has combined the Class 5 switch with its SQL Development Kit, the SVI-SDK.
“Our SDK enables the customer to rapidly create and deploy new services, which is something we've already seen put to great use by customers working with residential services in particular," added Joe Williamson, Squire's product manager.
