Over the next few months the IT Department will migrating from our current Asterisk telephone switch to Freeswitch. Both platform are open source and run on Linux, but Freeswitch is designed to be more stable and can handle a bigger load.
Right now we are just in the testing phase, but over the next few months few will be notifying the rest of Sage on both our progress and when end user testing will start.
Some of the new features we will be getting with Freeswich:
- Phone switch redundancy, One in Albany and one in Troy.
- Centralized Fax Server
- Distributed resources
