SIP to Skype

If you aren’t aware, Skip2PBX is a company which enables you to take advantage of Skype trunking. The company is based in Italy and I have met Caristopher Arkin who handles the company’s marketing. Caristopher recently sent over an e-mail telling me the company has gotten their gateway to work between SIP and Skype. I thought this was pretty big news and worth sharing.

    Hi Rich,
    Please kindly understand that our S800 Skype/SIP Digital SoftSwitch is better than Skip2PBX. Our software can integrate with IP-PBX or SIP VoIP Gateway and the SIP phone will show the Skype ID before pick up SIP phone (it’s leading tech in the world). Also can call to Skype Use via SIP phone.
    Please advise your interesting so that I can send you more product info and free demo s/w for verification.
    Best Regards,
    Foster Lin
    Sales Manager

    I’ll just write this comment because I have installed and I use Skip2PBX in my own company and your post confuses me.
    How can you say that your product is better than Skip2PBX if you’ve never installed it?
    I mean if you installed it you must know that Skip2PBX supports caller I.D. too, even for analog or ISDN lines!
    Can you explain me better? Is it your product better than Skip2PBX only for a feature that Skip2PBX already has?

    Thank you so much for running with the enthusiasm that we here at Skip2PBX are feeling and this legitimate “excitement” in that NOT ONLY is this a major step into what we knew was a quickly-arriving inevitability, it is a significant feature that now opens up a lot of doors for our our product. Our versions supporting SIP to Skype have indeed been brought in ahead of schedule! I personally received and therefore “ear-witnessed” a fantastic preliminary test call just yesterday afternoon and I’ve been assured we’ll have the Beta version already on Sept.1 and the official release of the updates for September 10th.
    Using Skype via a SIP phone, etc. as one of your commentators remarks above, well, certainly!” That’s only a small part of the whole convenience and opportunity of the idea. Plus I feel I have to mention that, as perhaps you’ve noticed, Skip2PBX is loaded with enterprise features, recognition of the incoming Skype account and automatically adding it into Skip2PBX’s comprehensive address book is just ONE of the many on our sturdy Linux-based creation, the most important of which is likely to be our “automatic free-line” detection feature.
    The list goes on, as do our technical achievements and I have to repeat how very proud I am of our people here who realized this SIP goal ahead of its own time!
    Thanks!

    Ok…I’ll bite. Excuse me Mister Lin, (see entry above) but you’ll have to do a little more than proclaim to show a Skype caller ID, of course Skip2PBX shows caller IDs and adds the new incoming callers to our comprehensive address book data base within the users web interface, plus we can work with a variety of hardware cards… even ISDN Eicon cards! Our product IS COMPLETELY software, and excuse me for asking but aren’t your products dependent on your proposed hardware? Plus, I believe another barrier for those who proclaim to so easily surpass Skip2PBX remains the fact that we appear to be the only solution of this kind that is Linux rather than Windows based.

    Hi Rich! THANKS again for running with the enthusiasm of these latest developments and recent days here at Skip2PBX. The SIP integration into our particularly gifted product certainly now provides a myriad of new possibilities for our collaborations with and contributions to many of you all.
    Let’s keep an open dialog ever growing!
