Our Story

The history of Vodia Networks goes back to the year 2005, when there was very limited choice for multi-tenant PBX products. The goal was to create a software that can run on standard servers and can be easily installed and maintained. At that time the PBX was sold under the brand name "pbxnsip Inc." which tried to combine the words "PBX" and "SIP". In 2010, snom technology acquired and integrated the pbxnsip product into its product portfolio and rebranded it as snom ONE. In order to focus on the VoIP handset business in 2012, the IP-PBX product line of snom technology was spun out into Vodia Networks. The name pbxnsip was dropped in favor of the name "Vodia" which is easier to pronounce.

The core product, the Vodia PBX was designed with hosted services in mind already from the pbxnsip days. The first version had multi-tenancy and voice encryption included. The software was written independently from operating system dependencies and today runs on various Windows, Linux, MacOS and BSD variants. Over the years, the PBX has accumulated a large number of features that cover requirements of hosted, on premise, call center and regular office requirements.

Today

The software uses the SIP standard and works well with most of the available VoIP phones in the market. Automatic provisioning is available for the mainstream VoIP phones. A built-in session border controller makes sure that users can use the PBX from inside and outside the corporate network. The PBX supports a mix of multiple IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Vodia has picked up industry trends like WebRTC and integrated them into the product. Now customers that need a desktop phone can just use the web browser to do their telephone calls in the office. The WecRTC technology is also taken outside of the PBX product, for example the Vodia Android app. The unique set of requirements of the PBX has shaped a code base that can be taken into other areas in the VoIP area and outside.

Vodia is based in the Tradecenter in Woburn, Massachusetts (USA) with a global network of locations and partners that live the dream of the ubiquitous internet availability not only for web but also for voice traffic. The Vodia logo represents the urge to continuously deliver new products and features that work around the clock, similar to a steam locomotive that keeps puffing along.
