PortaOne has reached a deal with SJ Labs, US-based specialist in VoIP software, to integrate their flagship software products to create an on-demand ‘media-over-IP’ solution for internet telephony service providers (ITSPs). SJ Labs will integrate its SJphone product, a customisable on-line softphone, with the PortaSwitch (PortaBilling/PortaSIP) products from PortaOne, which enables efficient implementation of billing solutions for ITSPs. The alliance was announced at the Spring VON conference in San Jose, California.
As the direct-to-consumer Internet telephony market increases in the coming years, easy-to-use on-demand services will be central to the provisioning and delivery of voice-over-IP (VoIP) services, as well as data and video services, ranging from videoconferencing to Internet chat.
The combination of SJphone and PortaSwitch makes for a powerful one-stop solution for all kinds of Internet telephony service providers. We have hundreds of customers around the world, of all sizes, that need flexible billing solutions for their services, and PortaOne provides a simple way for them to combine our software for any types of new services for which they want to bill and manage for their customers.”
Vladimir Greysukh, CEO of SJ Labs
Also at VON, SJ Labs also announced new features for its SJphone, including support for Video and a Jabber-based Internet Messaging Program (IMP).
The advanced capabilities of our PortaSwitch software are fully complemented by SJ Labs so that customers can quickly add new features for their customers and know that they are being managed and billed, with no down-time. As with the SJ Labs softphone, customers pay only for a one-time perpetual license for our product, and its cost does not depend on number of calls, ports, or customers. A customized training and six months of 24/7 technical support and maintenance are also included in the price.”
Roman Khalenkov, Sales and Marketing Director for PortaOne
SJphone Basic is the first customizable on-line softphone for Internet, offering full-scale voice support, even over regular dial-up Internet lines. The product is targeted at smaller-to-mid-size ITSPs, who can easily download and integrate the product and can be up and running in minutes.
