PortaSwitch consists of the following components:

Converged Billing Software

SIP Softswitch with Media Applications

PortaSIP, a class 4 (SBC) and class 5 SIP softswitch offers many advanced features for calling cards, retail and wholesale, hosted IP PBX or IP Centrex services such as, for example:

  • hunt-groups,
  • call forwarding/follow-me,

The configuration server is a single point for efficient management and seamless update process of the whole PortaSwitch set up. It is also used as a logging storage to remove the analytical task loads from the servers directly involved in the operational processes.

  • Full source code with DB description and XML API,
  • Oracle Linux OS and MySQL DB
  • Post-installation configuration, monitoring, and optimization
  • Customized training
  • Complimentary subscription to PortaCare: 24/7 technical support and new feature updates

 

PortaSwitch Performance

PortaSwitch comes with unlimited license and since there are no artificial limitations on the software side the only thing that limits its performance is the calculating power of the servers it is installed on. Of course, the actual performance will depend on the system`s configuration, traffic patterns, and the types of services provided. From our experience the following numbers may be expected, on average:

Performance Indicators Maximal Values Call attempts per second 50 Busy hour call attempts (BHCA) 180,000 Concurrent calls 7,500 Concurrent Internet access sessions 20,000 Individual customers 100,000 Monthly traffic in minutes 20,000,000

If your business requires higher capacity and/or more redundancy options you may consider clustered products like PortaSwitch Procinctus or Oracle RAC based systems.

To overcome catastrophic events such as natural disasters, power outages at the collocation provider, network routing errors, etc., and provide uninterrupted service PortaSwitch can be complimented with a site redundancy.
