I have used Broadsoft and tried to work that into a hosted model with
great disappointment. The problems I had with a Broadsoft/Acme Packet
solution in handling 10k users was mind blowing... especially, since I
was able to eliminate these problems and see incredible growth when I
switched to openSER/Kamailio.

We jumped to over 60k users and eliminated (completely) problems with
NAT, one way audio, as well as increasing the features we could offer
our clients.

I think some vendors are starting to aggressively attack open source
(Mitel recently did, I responded:

Some people look at open source as a "cheaper" solution, but that's not
the reason I became involved... I needed a better solution, and again,
Kamailio solved the problems I had 15 years ago and it continues to be a
rock solid performer today.
