We provide FreeSWITCH support, consulting and custom development which can span from a simple installation and configuration to complex deployments. FreeSWITCH can be used as an Office PBX (aka. media server) inside your network and as a session border controller (SBC) at the edge of your network. If you want to start using FreeSWITCH without having to understanding all of the underpinning then you might want to use a FreeSWITCH GUI such as FusionPBX
FreeSWITCH as a Development Platform
There are a handful of projects that are focused on providing a web based GUI for FreeSWITCH. We can help you select the right project for you and install the package in your environment. Our engineers can get on the phone with you and review your requirements and infrastructure to help you decide which GUI to leverage.
Using FreeSWITCH as a PBX/Media Server
Customers are using FreeSWITCH as a business phone system to replace proprietary systems such as Avaya, Cisco and Nortel. The hardware and software licenses to implement this system can cost thousands of dollars and locks you into their solution where adding additional features to support an Auto Attendant or Call Center will cost you additional licensing fees. Using FreeSWITCH as a PBX often triggers the conversation of Asterisk versus FreeSWITCH. If you are going through this dilemma let us help you make the right decision. One of our engineers can get on the phone with you and review your requirements and infrastructure to help you decide which telephony platform you should use. In some cases, you might want to use a combination of both.
Using FreeSWITCH as a SBC
Many of our customers are using FreeSWITCH as a session border controller (SBC). A SBC is deployed on the edge of a VoIP network to exert control over how VoIP traffic enters and leaves the network. Here are some of features that FreeSWITCH can provide a SBC:
Security – protect the network from hackers
- Malicious attacks such as denial-of-service attacks (DoS)
- Ability to hide the topology of the VoIP network
- Encryption of voice traffic (media stream)
Connectivity – allow different network configurations
- Protocol translations between SIP and other protocols
- NAT traversal
- SIP header and message manipulation
Quality of Service (QoS) – Enables QoS policy of traffic between different carriers and/or trunks
- Traffic Policing
- Rate Limiting
- Resource Allocation
If you need help installing and configuring FreeSWITCH we recommend purchasing support so that one of our engineers can engage and work with you. We typically can work with you immediately.
