[VoiceOps] Multi Tenant Commercial Softswitch Besides Broadsoft

Let's not make this about Asterisk vs. FreeSwitch or why open source can do anything the commercial players can do (even if they can do it better or offered it years earlier).

The original poster asked about alternatives to Broadsoft with special attention to multi tenancy and commercial offerings. To my knowledge neither Asterisk (Digium) nor FreeSwitch offer a commercially viable product that competes directly with Broadsoft or provides a service provider management interface. My assumption is that the interface for provisioning and user management etc. is the driving force behind the use of the word "commercial" but I prefer not to make that assumption and ask the original poster to clarify those points.

Our asterisk system is peaking at over 800 standing calls without breaking a sweat.

Cbeyond bought a company called Aretta that did Asterisk in containers - one for each customer. It became unmanageable.

Just some thoughts this morning.
