Open source telecommunications software has graduated from hobbyist or low-grade quality networks to high-grade, reliable, enterprise technology, and 2600hz is the leader in these advanced networks.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
VoIP innovator 2600hz® announced today the release of its newest product, Whistle, the first-ever distributed, open-source communications software that enables any company to provide reliable cloud-based enterprise and carrier-grade telecom services. Also today, the company announced Whistle’s first deployment with leading business communications provider, Texas-based StarView Solutions.
Whistle dramatically cuts traditionally high VoIP operational costs with a self-scaling architecture that automatically configures additional servers and adjusts for real-time usage, while 24/7 monitoring catches glitches before they cause disturbances. The product's unique, horizontal architecture ensures minimal service disruptions due to network failures for paramount data safety. With Whistle, call components are modular and independent, and redundancy automatically saves data in multiple locations. API mash-up technology allows companies to easily integrate their existing applications. Providers who wish to add new functionality can choose from pre-built Whistle Apps named “WhApps.”
“Open source telecommunications software has graduated from hobbyist or low-grade quality networks to high-grade, reliable, enterprise technology, and 2600hz is the leader in these advanced networks,” said Darren Schreiber, CEO and co-founder of 2600hz. “Whistle is the first open communication infrastructure that allows companies to easily upgrade to a more powerful VoIP system that can host large carrier VoIP platforms for leading communications companies like StarView. We believe that Whistle is the future of telecommunications in the cloud, and we’re keeping it open-source.”
Whistle was selected by StarView Solutions, a leading provider of business-ready communications service solutions, to expand its VoIP infrastructure while still allowing the company to use its existing interface and applications.
“We’re excited to add Whistle as another switching activation component utilized by StarView’s PRISM service. Resellers and end users can access services in real-time and activate hosted seats, devices, phone numbers, and e911, just to name a few. Whistle is helping us reduce even more operational costs by automating all of our services through one platform, which is PRISM,” said Evin Hunt, VP of Technology at StarView Solutions. “In addition, the 2600hz team offers around-the-clock tech support services, which is critical to operating such an advanced system.”
Whistle is a call processing fabric designed to work on multiple processors at high-volumes with high reliability. Utilizing cutting-edge technologies like NoSQL and AMQP, the Whistle platform allows for complete independence and redundancy of all components in a VoIP system, and couples the architecture with true distribution across nodes – either over a private WAN or the public Internet. Thanks to the power of the CouchDB database system, RabbitMQ messaging and the reliable FreeSWITCH switching platform, Whistle provides a turn-key solution for service providers looking to expand their offerings with little effort. To top it off, the product is installed with a “no lock-in, no downloads” philosophy that enables installation on any Linux server without download or configuration hassles.
