Ecosmob Technologies Pvt. Ltd., a company based out of India with nearly a decade in the VoIP market, has announced it is offering a FreeSWITCH PBX solution.

It can support hundreds to thousands of concurrent calls and conferences. The Ecosmob Technologies offering also features automatic speech recognition, call detail reports, call forwarding, caller ID, caller ID customization, call me, cell phone integration, conferencing support, CRM integration, find me/follow me, multilingual support, PA system capability, remote phone support, support for various codecs, text-to-speech functionality, unlimited auto attendants and extensions, and XML-RPC control of live calls.

FreeSWITCH is an open source telephony platform that can route and interconnect audio, text, video, or any other media. Release 1.6.15 of FreeSWITCH became available last month. New features with this release are listed here.

Created in 2006 by the developers of Asterisk, FreeSWITCH delivers cross-platform support, modularity, scalability, and stability. It supports H.323, SIP, Skype, and WebRTC. And it can interface with other open source PBX systems including Asterisk, Bayonne, Call Weaver, sipXecs, and YATE.

Speaking of Asterisk, the creator of it, Digium, continues to expand on its work around the popular open source communications engine. Late that year Digium announced version 14 of Asterisk, which supports the Opus codec, and has been updated for better ease of installation and integration.

"For administrators using Asterisk in large, horizontally scalable service-based ecosystems, the additions and improvements made in version 14 are significant," said Matt Fredrickson, project lead for Asterisk with Digium. "Asterisk's enhanced media capabilities make it easier to build flexible media services and to decrease maintenance and deployment burdens. Asterisk 14 also resolves one of the greatest initial barriers to being productive - learning how to install it. Further, the DNS improvements in Asterisk 14 allow it to more fully utilize modern networks. We are extremely fortunate to have such an involved developer community that continues to make Asterisk a huge success."
