How does it work for the service provider?
- Purchase a PortaSwitch unlimited perpetual license. We provide a software download link within one (1) business day.
- Prepare the hardware (standard Intel-based servers). There is no need to pre-install an OS or anything else. The installation image we supply installs Oracle Linux OS, applications (such as Apache) and PortaOne code on a completely empty server in less than 10 minutes.
- Once your private cloud with PortaSwitch is up and running, PortaOne engineers will remotely assist with initial setup and verification. They will run a comprehensive performance test to ensure there are no hardware or network issues.
- PortaOne application engineer will conduct onsite training for your team. After the training, you will be able to:
- set up your VoIP service network (DIDs, partner carriers, etc.);
- configure your products and rate plans;
- customize your invoice layout;
- upload information about your SIM cards, IP phones, and the like to inventory;
- set up resellers and distributors;
- start adding new customers;
- perform analytics and troubleshooting;
- receive alerts via email or SMS if a situation requires attention;
- connect third-party applications (e.g. bookkeeping) via API.
- If you have more questions or any concerns, you can contact PortaOne’s best-in-the-industry technical support 24/7/365. PortaOne engineers can assist you in solving technical issues, answer your “how to” questions, and remotely perform software upgrades.
- The PortaOne engineering team also can help you with additional training, onsite technical assistance, and custom feature development.
There are several product packages available, but all provide exactly the same functionality and communication service provision capability. All currently available features or modules are included at no extra cost. Moreover, any new features or enhancements will be delivered free of charge as part of the regular support & maintenance service.
The only difference between packages is in the total amount of licensed servers (which defines maximum performance) and the level of redundancy (which defines your service’s availability and resilience).
Please contact the PortaOne sales team to discuss your exact requirements and choose the package which best fits your needs.
