VoIP Switch - VoIP Switch Provider Sippy Software Moves Ahead in the New Year

 
December 18, 2012

 


VoIP switches also known as softswitches are in essence carrier-grade session controllers that act as a single platform connecting separated IP networks in order to power various VoIP communications. When leveraged by Internet telephony service providers (ITSPs), this offering can reduce costs while raising the bar on the quality of VoIP-based communications within businesses.

This year, the space continued to expand at a rapid pace and Sippy Software remained one of the key players in the increasingly popular industry. Its product, coined the Sippy Softswitch, encompasses multiple functions including interactive voice response functionality; protected interconnection with customers, partners and providers alike; a high level of security to deter cyber attacks; advanced VoIP rating/billing; smart call routing; and the overall cost-effective control of VoIP calls.

In 2012, version 3.0.0 of the product made its official debut. Some of its enhancements as opposed to previous versions are call recording, packet capture for debugging, DID management, time of the day rating, late and early greetings, completion regex options in the calling card/callback app, CDRs re-rate, and suspending environments. In addition, Incoming routing, support for end-user managed connections, external registrations and additional foreign language support are also powered by the intuitive VoIP switch.

At the time of the unveiling, Maksym Sobolyev, CEO of SippySoft said in a statement, “Delivering carrier class solutions to carriers and VoIP providers in such diverse locations worldwide, means that we needed to consistently deliver the most reliable and feature rich systems possible. We believe that this release of the Sippy SoftSwitch, coupled with new payment and lease options, ensures that this is the most cost effective, functional, and easiest to implement solution on the market!"

Moreover, the company made headlines this year when the news broke that it would be powering IPv6 support for its Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) (SIP) softswitch and Session Border Controller (SBC) products. There was also talk during this time that the next version of its VoIP switch, 4.0 would be IPv6 compatible as all newly assigned domain addresses will be leveraging this Internet protocol.

In fact, the firm is touted as being the first to unveil an IPv6 softswitch that offers users a high level of reliability.

"This is an important step forward in delivering innovative products and solutions in the ever changing telecommunication environment. IPv6 general and brings numerous benefits to the VoIP in particular,” added Sobolyev. “It removes many boundaries and limitations of the old version 4 of the IP protocol.”

So, what is there to look forward to from the VoIP switch provider in 2013? Surveying its advancements in this last 12-month period, it looks like a lot.
