This is a pre-release announcement of the new features to become available for our customers with the Maintenance Release 16.
The MR16 is scheduled for November this year.
There are two major changes related to the overall PortaSwitch architecture:
High level of flexibility. In addition to the product specific features we expect to start providing installation CDs based on FreeBSD 6.2 for both 32bit and 64bit systems.
Improved performance and scalability. Starting from MR16 PortaBilling100 can be scaled up horizontally. This will allow running several PortaBilling100 instances in parallel.
Extra flexibility for your business model. An account in PortaBillling100, and thus available funds, can be linked to several multiple identities (e.g. ANI number, DID number, PIN, etc.).
Higher efficiency.Here comes a robust and easy-to-use web-based alternative to the command-line CDR re-feed tool.
Automation tool with improved usability for your clients. With this faster and more secure web singup function your clients are able to chose from available DIDs and UAs during the first registration as well as provide credentials for instant account creation, provisioning and payment collection.
- Conditional call forwarding
Another cool feature for your clients. This allows to set rules for call forwarding.
Integration with e-mail client. You customers can now click to dial in MS Outlook.
Improved redundancy. With MR16 our clients can run both primary and stand-by PortaUM servers to ensure high level of redundancy and service availability.
An excellent way to stand out and improve you bottom line. This feature will allow your customers to enjoy conferencing service, inviting up to 40 callers in one virtual conference room to discuss common business project or just chat between friends and relatives.
Please note that this is a preliminary announcement and the list above is not 100% complete and confirmed. For more information please contact us.
