You have probably read about Nortel's Software Communications System 500 (SCS500), a Unified Communications (UC) SIP-centric software solution for SMB (30-500 users), and that our go to market includes IBM and Dell.
What you may not know is that the SCS500 is based on open source from SIPfoundry, and blends the best of both the open source framework and Nortel's experience and expertise in voice, data, multimedia and unified communications.
Now we have bought PingTel, an open source pioneer. Where does Pingtel fit it? Pingtel is to SIPfoundry what Red Hat Enterprise Linux is to Fedora.
This acquisition demonstrates our commitment to openness and to communications as an application.
1. Our strategy is UC, and sipXecs is a native SIP solution consistent with our strategy.
2. Our strategy is user and application scalability..
3. Our strategy is centered on delivering high Quality of Experience.
4. Our strategy is centered on delivering Simplifications.
By the way, these strategies dictated why sipXecs was chosen over Asterisk, a clearly inferior open source environment.
