SureVoIP Launches Innovative API

AsteriskCatalystFreeSWITCHOpenSIPSPerlPostgreSQLSuretec

Aberdeen-based communications company SureVoIP has just launched an innovative API (application programming interface) which will provide an even better service for customers and partners and allow 100% self-service and interaction with the SureVoIP suite of products and services.



To ensure communications with other products and services, the company has just launched what is believed to be UK VoIP’s first publicly available and documented Application Programming Interface (API) beta of this kind.



Commenting on the move, SureVoIP managing director Gavin Henry said: “It is vital for us to remain at the forefront of technology and it is anticipated that this API will further enhance our ability to provide the broadest possible spectrum to all customers and partners, existing or potential.



“The SureVoIP API can be used to send SMS messages, faxes, generate telephone calls, manage accounts and telephone numbers, subscribe to event notifications and use a feature called OAuth 2.0 which allows third parties to create Apps like those for Twitter and Facebook.



“Various partnerships have been put in place to maximise adoption and many of our existing customers are already incorporating this API into their Mobile App strategy. Because of this, SureVoIP has also started development work on its own mobile app for customers and partners as well as a long list of exciting new ways to make a telephone call.”



SureVoIP is regulated by Ofcom, is a member of the Internet Telephony Service Providers Association (ITSPA) and is a finalist in that organisation’s 2012 awards. The company is also the holder of an ITSPA Quality Mark accreditation. For further information visit www.surevoip.co.uk or call 01224 900123 or email sales@surevoip.co.uk

Telephones for the professional

AsteriskFreeSWITCHOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec

The innovative application of broadband internet technology to traditional telephony is set to radically change the world of business

TO ESTABLISH and maintain a successful business operation, modern-day professionals require an ever-growing arsenal of technology and tools at their disposal.

Topping the list of non-negotiable requirements are a computer, an internet connection, a mobile phone and, of course, a fixed phone line.

The digital age has brought a multitude of advancements to traditional telephony, which now uses a combination of fibre optic cables, microwave transmission links, cellular networks and communication satellites to send voice communications across the world.

However, the fact remains that traditional analogue systems such as wire circuitry are still used to connect that vital last mile from the exchange to the telephone.

Despite a global outlook, the modern-day professional is still very much tied to local-level restraints of limited flexibility and costliness.

Today, innovative application of broadband internet technology to traditional telephony is abolishing the need for this last mile of copper wiring, and is consequently bringing the modern-day professional into the global community.

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) transmits voice and multimedia communication through the internet as opposed to the traditional phone line – essentially combining the flexibility and cost efficiency of the internet with the main functions of traditional telephony.

SureVoIP passes BT VoIP interconnect interoperability testing

Suretec Hi all,

Just a quick note to say last week we passed the BT VoIP interconnect interoperability testing which means our interconnect with BT and all our Ofcom number ranges will finally be live next month. We can of course supply numbers and do number porting right now as normal.

Thanks,

Gavin.

Just signed our BT VoIP interconnect contracts and paid setup fee

AsteriskFreeSWITCHOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec Hi All,

Quick one to say we've just signed our BT VoIP interconnect contract and paid up our setup fee. Now on to interop testing then hosting of our Ofcom number allocations!

Our new website will be up very soon for our VoIP ITSP - SureVoIP

Don't worry, that website will be very non-technical in most places unless necessary! :-)

This would not have been possible without the power of Open Source software!

Thanks,

Gavin.

VoIP solutions could benefit from iPhone 4 - Why bother? Get an Android Open Source phone and the new VoIP features now

AsteriskFreeSWITCHLinuxOpen SourceSuretec Hi all,

The iPhone 4, which was officially unveiled on the June 7th at a presentation in San Francisco, includes several new features that will benefit VoIP users. These are touted as:


  • Multi-task when making a VoIP call, so customers can access other applications, such as a calendar, during a conversation.

  • Built-in noise cancellation to eliminate background sounds when making VoIP calls.

  • Videoconferencing will also be possible between iPhones via the Face Time feature, allowing remote employees to partake in business meetings.

  • Longer battery life, while the screen resolution has been significantly improved compared to previous models.



The iPhone 4 will be available in the UK from June 24th.

Wow you may think this is amazing, but all these features have been available on Android phones (Google's Open Source mobile operating system) for ages. I've just got an HTC Desire from O2 and it's the No.1 phone in the world right now. It can do all of above and more, plus the Sipdroid VoIP client is free and works on 3G and WiFi using our VoIP services or anyone elses. Best of all it's free software and just works.


Another good blog post covers why the iPhone can never keep up with Android or Open Source:

"Through a bevy of handset makers, Android can offer a variety of phones that will make it difficult for
Apple to beat with just one hardware release a year. While it is hard to

ever go wrong with an iPhone, Android offers a ton of alternative form

factors, price points and carriers: Sprint (NYSE: S) has released the

first 4G phone on Android; T-Mobile has a new competitive Android phone

with a slide-out keyboard; the HTC Incredible sold by Verizon has been

flying off store shelves; and even Google’s Nexus One still boasts some

of the latest hardware. Not to mention new Android phones from Samsung

and LG (SEO: 066570) coming later this summer."


Google now have figures to show that 100,000 open source Android mobile phones are getting activated daily!

Gavin.

All Ofcom number allocations are being approved

AsteriskFreeSWITCHOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec Hi all,

Looks like all of them are coming in except critically low areas, but we'll use sub-allocations from our carriers for these areas.

We'll have around 98% UK coverage for numbers in the end. We haven't even finished applying or done 03/07/08/09 yet!

We also got our Communications Provider ID and Carrier-Pre-Select numbers.

More later,

Gavin.

First Ofcom number allocations are in!!!

AsteriskFreeSWITCHOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec Another quick update. We've just received notice of our first ever number allocations from Ofcom.

They are "Location Independent Electronic Comm Services" which are used for VoIP accounts and we have:

05600 51XXXX

Thanks,

Suretec allocated a Communications Provider Identity ("CUPID") code by Ofcom

AsteriskCatalystDojoFreeSWITCHJabber/XMPPLinuxOpenLDAPOpenSIPSOpen SourcePerlPostgreSQLSuretec Exciting news!

Our Communications Provider Identity ("CUPID") code application has been processed by Ofcom and we just received our number of 291.

The start of many good things to come with our own VoIP provider SureVoIP (brand and website being worked on now). We're also listed as an ITSP at ITSPA.

Thanks,
