Expand Your SME’s VoIP Telecommunications Infrastructure
Open-source VoIP PBXes (Private Branch Exchanges) offer small to medium-sized enterprises a cost-effective entry point into deploying a VoIP PBX within their enterprise. Such PBXes could especially be an attractive option if you don’t want to outsource your VoIP PBX to a third-party provider.
Open-source PBXes such as Asterisk 22.214.171.124 (www.asterisk.org), Pingtel SIPxchange ECS (www.pingtel.com), and Signate Telephony Server 5000 (www.signate.com) offer the full suite of PBX features rivaling their expensive commercial cousins. Each of these IP PBXes is backed up by a vendor’s support and professional services organization.
