AsteriskOpenSIPSOpen SourceSuretec
After almost 7 months from the last major release (1.5.0), OpenSIPS evolves with a new major release, 1.6.0.

OpenSIPS 1.6.0 comes with several critical improvements (DB area, dialog support), but also with new functionalities
(like memchaced support, B2Bua implementation, virtual DB URLs, STUN server, JSON support, new AAA/RADIUS interface, etc).

A complete compilation with all the additions and improvements for *OpenSIPS 1.6.0 *release is available under:
http://www.opensips.org/Main/Ver160

Many thanks to all the people who got involved in this release (and in the overall OpenSIPS project) and contributed with code, with testing and debuging, with patches or reports, with support on the lists, help with packaging and documentation.
I will avoid listing names, not because they do not deserve it, but simply because it will impossible to list list everybody here and I do not what to be unfair with some of them (because I simply forgot a name or because of the limited space).

But nevertheless, I want to thanks you all for out great job and not in my behalf, but in the behalf of people who will find this piece of software a useful tool.

The full Changelog is available here:

Suretec Telecom finds WARP Enterprise 'rock solid'

AsteriskOpen SourceSuretec From WARP Enterprise from PIKA Makes Deploying SMB IP-PBX Applications Even Easier:

Based in Aberdeen, Scotland, Suretec Systems has recently launched a new telecom business to meet the needs of small and medium-sized businesses looking for cost-effective and highly featured telephone systems.

PIKA’s WARP Enterprise PBX platform is the perfect fit for Suretec’s new Telecom business,” said Suretec managing director Gavin Henry. “It is so flexible in how it can be deployed and configured, yet remains a rock solid platform for any enterprise.

“Our customers have all expressed interest in not only the huge cost savings that can be achieved with open source products, but the feature richness, stability and support,” Henry added. “WARP Enterprise meets the cost targets and also saves us recurring integration expenses over the long run, with stable components that don’t churn on a yearly basis.”

Create an Asterisk hotline/autodial/PLAR without Asterisk!!!

AsteriskOpen SourceSuretec Just a quick one to say that when you think you need Asterisk for a customer request, sometimes you don't!!

A question from a customer yesterday:

Do you know of an IP desk telephone that can be used on a
hotline/autodial/PLAR type basis? Ie pick up one phone and the other
rings, etc.

Tricky bit... no call manager of any sort in-between... just the
phones
direct on the network.



Aastra to the rescue!!! Any of the new 67XXi ranges have a feature either per line or globally like so:

Autodial Settings

Autodial Number
Autodial Timeout


Simply add an IP address in the Autodial Number field for line 1 and when you pick up the handset it dials the other phone on that IP directly. No need to put Asterisk in between or any other system, other than pure IP.

Nice!

P.S. I'm sure most of the business grade IP phones out there can do the same.
