[VoiceOps] Multi Tenant Commercial Softswitch Besides Broadsoft

The only problems I've had are in low tower density areas where the RSSI of the data gets too low to be useful before handoff (cell calls work better with weak signals than data does). In heavy coverage areas (cities/etc) I haven't really seen that.

I know GSM/CDMA has voice handoffs timeframes timed in the ms mark, so the user never hears/notices that they jumped from one tower to another. But I was under the impression that data connections don't jump as fast? Kind of like then you go from a 3G to 4G area. It takes your phone a second or two to switch technologies. A second or 2 of loss is too long in a voice call conversations using SIP over data.

    I've used mobile data heavily since
      2002. And I've never seen it switch IPs based on towers. The only
      time I see it change (other than while roaming) is usually if you
      go from 1xRTT to 3G, or 3G to 4G (and that last part varies
      depending on whether you're using 3G in a 4G enabled area, which
      doesn't typically switch IPs) (that's CDMA centric, but my
      experience was similar with GSM (CSD/EDGE/HSDPA/LTE). Of course,
      Nextel's packetstream service never changed IPs (in mid session,
      anyway) for the most part that I can remember, but that was 12
      years ago and who knows, my memory could be fuzzy here. I think
      they actually would end up changing IPs if you roamed to a
      different nextel region (there were several that I can recall)
      I have had very few problems maintaining long term data
      connections over cellular networks over the years, at least not
      ones related to something other than signal reception or changes
      in what region of the network you were in, or what access
      technology was being used by the handset or device).

        Our provider has partially deployed UC-One. They don't
          support call through/mobility/SMS functionality though, so we
          find it limiting so far. Correct me if I am wrong but SMS
          though Broadsoft is still done the Message Now application
          that is separate and not integrated with UC-One right?
        I like the idea of using cellular minutes as SIP clients on
          smartphones don't work well especially when traveling.
          Cellular voice calls jump between towers when traveling in a
          call, but data does not. I have heard some Broadsoft providers
          have integrate with Sprint's wireless solution.

                    you tried BroadSoft’s UC One BroudTouch Business
                    Communicator Solution (BTBC).  I don’t know of ones
                    that can top Mobile & Desktop effectively and
                    still deliver an application rich technology.  They
                    also support Mobile Link integrating the cell phone
                    service as well as SMS.  We have deployed he full UC
                    One solution.

                    What carrier and service
                      provider multitenant softswitch and pbx systems
                      are on the market today besides Broadsoft? We use
                      a Broadsoft solution today. We like the redundancy
                      that Broadsoft offers, and the fact that it just
                      works. However, they are starting to seriously
                      lack features, and there are too many Broadsoft
                      competitors. We are finding that our Broadsoft
                      offering is no different than Comcast, Verizon, or
                      other local providers that offer Broadsoft
                      services to.


                      We are really looking for
                        something that integrates well for the mobile
                        worker. The ability to use their cell phone with
                        the service is key for us. The day's of clients
                        buying $300 Polycom IP phones are slowing down.
                        However, people understand the value and are
                        willing to spend $600 on a smartphone.
