[VoiceOps] Multi Tenant Commercial Softswitch Besides Broadsoft

A well spec'd Asterisk box can handle well 500+ calls if audio is not going through Asterisk.    The drawback to Asterisk is you have to add lots of extra stuff. The few GUIs availabe for Asterisk are all designed for SMBs, not for a carrier.  I love Asterisk, but it would not come close to fufilling the original poster's needs for things like SMS (for some values of "SMS").

Other considerations (cost)

An Asterisk 1U server sotswitch will comfortably handle 100 concurrent calls, as a business grows Additional 1U Servers are added. If a 1U switch would crash, automatic failover to other 1U load balanced softswitch servers. Because of the lower cost entry redundancy in multiple Co-locations is easily accomplished. Live CDR can be pushed to the billing product of your choice.

A class 4 or 5 tandem switch is very expensive. Multiple co-location is next to impossible unless you have seven digits to invest.

I'm a new member to the group and happy to contribute to this thread.

For background purposes, Metaswitch has hundreds of service providers globally using our carrier-grade platform to deliver a complete Class 5, Trunking, and Hosted PBX solution and Accession UC Client to a broad range of enterprise customers.  We also have a number of service providers who offer a wholesale "whitelabel" offering as well.

I'll be happy to address specific questions about the breadth of our solution.  Suffice it to say that service providers, large and small, are winning in the market with our feature set.  We are also deployed in service providers who offer the same enterprise offering alongside those which is built on other vendors' platforms (as a result of M&A).  In other scenarios, service providers have opted to completely migrate from other platforms to Metaswitch.

In other cases, we provide the Class 4, Media Gateway functions (we can talk TDM and SIP), and/or SBC, which has been reviewed favorably by independent analysts and the market alike and can be deployed on HW or virtualized as well.
