And it comes with a large set of features that gives you what you need for your users and for your server management.
The Vodia PBX was built to run in public and private clouds from day one on virtual machines as well as bare metal as well as on standard LAN servers.
Ready for OS X, Linux, Windows
A wide range of operating systems including MacOS, Windows, FreeBSD and several Linux variants makes it easy to deploy the software on standard servers.
Highly Customizable Features
A large number of features known from traditional PBX and modern unified communication systems covers a wide range of requirements from various industries.
What is standard for email for a long time, is now also becoming standard for the telephony services: Run several organizations on the same system. This saves overhead for virtualizing each PBX and makes it easier to integrate the PBX into the network.
Reduced number of servers
Most organizations need much less than a modern server for their telephony needs. Putting multiple tenants on the same server uses the resource a lot more efficient without the need to virtualize the server along with other services. Thius avoid resource competition, which can negatively influence the user experience.
Multiple customers on same IP
Like many web servers, domains can share a single IP address for their services. The Vodia PBX determines which tenant is being addressed and automatically sends the request into the right domain. This is a key advantage of the multi tenancy compared to separate servers which need different IP addresses.
Encryption has become one of the leading topics in running critical business infrastructure today. The PBX supports encryption since its version 1.0 and has added numerous features that help organizations avoid costly security breaches from outside and inside the network, based on open and verifyable standards that work with state of the art products of the VoIP industry.
Communication with the PBX is encrypted using standard encryption algorimths based on TLS and SRTP. Secure provisioning minimizes the risk of stealing passwords during the provisioning process while still making it easy to pair devices with the system. The PBX also supports ZRTP for end-to-end encryption.
When running the PBX in unfriendly environments like the open Internet, the system needs to self-defense against scanners and malware. The system automatically blocks sources that are threatening the stability and sends reports to the system administrator.
Customers of the Vodia PBX can choose from a large range of available devices in the market. This makes it possible to pick and mix devices based on price, design, or simply taste and integrate them into the system. Soft phones running on all sorts of mobile and fixed devices can register with the PBX, from within the LAN or from the public Internet.
When using the SIP protocol, users can choose from traditional VoIP phones, cordless devices, softphones on smart phones, tablets or PC or even use the browser-based WebRTC protocol to communicate without installing any additional software.
Choose from a large number of popular SIP trunking providers for simplified setup of credentials and SIP parameters. Support for popular SIP PSTN gateways is available if you want to use the PSTN to terminate your calls.
The automatic installation of VoIP phones and PSTN gateways makes up a large part of the OPEX for a telephony server. The Vodia PBX offers a large range of supported devices that can be provisioned automatically with the PBX inside the LAN and over the public Internet. This reduces the user-interaction and the trainnig effort for rolling out installations.
The PBX automatically detects devices as they are plugged into the network and lists them in the web interface, so that the administrator can configure them without touching them.
When deploying phones over the internet, the PBX can communicate with servers from select vendors and redirect the phones to the PBX for the automatic provisiojning of the device..
