Open Source VoIP on Campus, Part 2

,----[ Quote ]
| Incidentally, SIP Express Router (SER) is included in many Linux 
| distributions and in the Sun Solaris operating system. It also has been 
| proven in numerous very large production deployments, including Freenet.de, 
| the German telecom and Internet services provider, which is serving more than 
| 1 million endpoints, and FWD (formerly FreeWorld Dialup), with half a million 
| endpoints.     


NeoPhonetics on Open Source and ITEXPO

| As a leader in open source, Linux-based Asterisk systems, we believe 
| Microsoft’s move into unified communications will be primarily complimentary 
| of our efforts because they are increasing VoIP adoption but are not likely 
| to compete directly for open source Asterisk PBX customers.   


Microsoft tries it's same old lock-in and anti-standards strategy.


Slide towards IP gathers pace

| The drift towards IP technologies is accelerating faster than anticipated, at

Halloween Memo I Confirmed and Microsoft's History on Standards

,----[ Quote ]
|  By the way, if you are by any chance trying to figure out Microsoft's policy 
|  toward standards, particularly in the context of ODF-EOXML, that same 
|  Microsoft page is revelatory, Microsoft's answer to what the memo meant when 
|  it said that Microsoft could extend standard protocols so as to deny 
|  Linux "entry into the market":    
|    Q: The first document talked about extending standard protocols as a way 
|    to "deny OSS projects entry into the market." What does this mean? 
|    A: To better serve customers, Microsoft needs to innovate above standard 
|    protocols. By innovating above the base protocol, we are able to deliver 
|    advanced functionality to users. An example of this is adding 
|    transactional support for DTC over HTTP. This would be a value-add and 
|    would in no way break the standard or undermine the concept of standards, 
|    of which Microsoft is a significant supporter. Yet it would allow us to 
|    solve a class of problems in value chain integration for our Web-based 
|    customers that are not solved by any public standard today. Microsoft 
|    recognizes that customers are not served by implementations that are 
|    different without adding value; we therefore support standards as the 
|    foundation on which further innovation can be based.
