With the new year comes a new release of FreeSWITCH, a very powerful open source telephony application.
The FreeSWITCH team is pleased to announce that version 1.0.2 is now available.
The last five months since the release of 1.0.1 have been very busy. New features, bug fixes, additions from the community - all of this and more. Some of the most exciting developments have to do with very high quality VoIP codecs. With this new release, FreeSWITCH now supports the Polycom Siren(tm) family of codecs as well as the very high quality CELT codec. Please visit here for all of the details.
What is FreeSWITCH?
FreeSWITCH is a very powerful, extensible telephony platform that can scale from a soft-phone to a soft-PBX and even to a class five soft-switch. Please visit our web site for more information.
JAJAH announced that it is building on its current Apple iPhone call-back offering by participating in the iPhone Developer Program to create possibly the first native global VoIP application.

Yoomba has launched an application which turns email messages into VoIP calls. The service requires a small download which adds 'click to call' buttons to the user's email messages and address books, which when clicked will send a message to the contact including a link.
Coordinated Systems, Inc., of East Hartford, CT, is pleased to announce the latest update to the Virtual Observer 3.0 Call Logger, a total call recording solution with support for most VoIP phone systems.
The Virtual Observer (VO) Logger can now be bolstered with virtual unlimited storage, enhanced playback and media encryption. The VO Logger is expandable to include a full featured quality monitoring suite. The VO Call Logger works in most VoIP, traditional TDM, and hybrid digital/analog/IP environments.
There are many call loggers on the marketplace today. Many of the more affordable solutions offer basic recording and limited playback features. Many are simple hardware recorders requiring managers to physically visit the unit to view recordings. Many offer extended features at a much higher price and will often force feature purchases that are neither necessary or in the future plans of the customer.
Note: Nice to see the fully SIP support predictive dialer. Time to flex my blogger muscle and see if they will let me give it a test drive.

The release includes an all new SIP gateway called Interaction Gateway, an appliance connecting legacy telephone trunks (T1s) to VoIP networks. Interaction Gateway works with Interaction Dialer to give high-volume outbound contact centers accurate predictive call analysis capabilities.
