Adding few more (historical) details on Palladion, just in case would be
useful to decide on going for it.
The system was developed by Iptego, a company split from Iptelorg, with
origins at FhG Fokus, in Berlin (the research institute that initially
developed SIP Express Router (SER), the ancestor of Kamailio/OpenSER).
Iptelorg was bought by Tekelec and Iptego was bought by Acme Packets.
Later, Tekelec and Acme were both by Oracle, so I expect that today the
Palladion can be purchased only from Oracle.
I saw many demos of Palladion several years ago, very neat and feature
rich application. If you are familiar with Homer Sipcapture, it used to
be the same kind of application, but having lots of extras (to be fair,
I haven't compared one to one, as I never had to deal with both at the
same time, but at a distance of couple of years). On the other hand,
Homer is quite flexible, and being open source gives more freedom to
tune or enhance yourself, besides being very active and new features are
added a consistent pace.
Licensing fee was more targeting large operators, so not coming cheap at
all for a small/medium operator. I don't know nowadays, but I expect it
didn't go down given it is now in the hands of Oracle. On the technical
side, I expect you are going to deal with the guys in Berlin, that are
quite capable on understanding SIP, with many years of experience.
If money is not an issue, Palladion is a good choice (again, I speak
more based on my experience prior Acme/Oracle era).
But, as I am more an open source guys, probably a fraction of the
license fee for it makes enough to fund a developer to add the feature
to export as you need to sngrep or homer.
