News: Signate Announces Hosted Telephony System SigPRO at ITEXPO

By: Tom Keating

Signate is announcing SigPRO. SigPRO is a hosted telephony system for telephone service providers with 5,000 to 500,000 customer extensions that Signate claims "sets a new price/performance standard".

I have heard various issues surrounding scalability issues when it comes to the Linux-based Asterisk IP-PBX solution, so I contacted one of my sources and asked about Signate's scalability claims. My source responded, "Signate is in for a shock when they really try to scale this stuff. They are using GPL'd code from Asterisk, and have not licensed the code. This means that they are likely not changing core Asterisk source code to implement scale. This means they are in for a bit of a surprise when they actually start getting hundreds, let alone hundreds of thousands concurrent users on one box."
