[VoiceOps] Multi Tenant Commercial Softswitch Besides Broadsoft

Asterisk is a fine solution if you have the ability to support it yourself - its Open Source - which means you own the support and any product development.  

Also it depends on your service set - if you are hosted only then that's one set of issues - but if you also want to offer SIP trunking with any advanced features then Asterisk is not the right move.

The BroadCloud service is white label and can support all the advanced services provided by BroadSoft - understand if you want to fully integrate with a wireless carrier be prepared to move to an MVNO arrangement - you need access to their switch system - its not simply features available on BSFT.

Everything Colton mentioned about the white label service he is currently on is available on BroadSoft form a feature perspective - there is NO lack of features on BroadSoft - just on the vendor providing his white label BSFT service.

I recommend either a direct inquiry to BroadSoft / BroadCloud or to the wholesaler.  The reason BroadSoft purchase HIPCOM was to enable its customers to move faster with new services.

We can set up a 100 concurrent redundant asterisk with a billing platform for less than $40 k. It will do SIP Trunking and Hosted. Automatically shut off customers if they don’t pay you. This is a system you would own in your own Colo, not a white label.

>>Are you on a hosted/white label Broadsoft installation or do you own your own license? I'm curious because I assume that you have a significant investment in your current platform and dumping that investment would require an even larger investment in another platform (not counting the training, migration, etc...). Metaswitch for example is a fantastic platform, but I don't know of any installation running it for less than $250k.
>>I get the idea of switching from Broadsoft to have service differentiation, but I'd counter with two points. 1) Everyone is using Broadsoft because it works, and 2) if you switch to another licensed platform you'd still be competing with other providers using that platform.
>>So if you are really looking for a unique one of a kind platform you'd probably be better served by rolling your own and partnering/paying Sprint for their WMI platform for your mobile needs.
