Last time I deployed Broadsoft on Solaris. We had mixed results.  This was back in 2002 I understand the Broadsoft Platform has changed alot.

Subject: [VoiceOps] Which Softswitch?

Hi All,

We are in the process of going down the path of deploying our own Softswitch infrastructure to transition away from purchasing from SIP Trunk providers and moving to getting CTS direct from VoIP Carriers.

There seems to be a lot of solutions out on the market and weeding out the "Built on Asterisk" / "Built on Freeswitch" with little or no support vs Commercial Supported solutions is proving to be difficult.

There are the "leaders" (or strong marketing companies) such as Broadsoft & Metaswitch - but what I am trying to uncover is what else is great out there that may not have the exposure but is worth looking at.

What we are looking for...

1. Class 4 Softswitch
2. Geographical Redundancy (Active - Active)
3. Preferably not built on Freeswitch or Asterisk (Not saying they're bad just tired of OpenSource for Core products)
4. Must have commercial support available (preferably during Australian hours)
5. Windows or Linux doesn't phase us - we have skill set on both platforms.

Happy to hear the good, the bad, the ugly, the war stories so that we can get some real world feedback on what's out there, what works, what doesn't and hopefully not make the same mistakes that others have already made.

Offlist replies are perfectly fine if you don't wish to discuss on-list.

Thanks in advance and enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
