DIDX Explains No Need to Continue Transcoding and Codec Conversion for Individuals

Dear Customer,

You and we enable each other to have such great success. We thank you! Please read this very important message.

Twelve years have passed since DIDX was started. That is 2005 to be exact.

In 2005, VoIP was not mainstream and not very mature. In fact, in 2005, a SIP or IAX interconnection was too expensive for most.

The costs were high to buy and maintain the system box, switches, servers along with the bandwidth and more to the point of unbearable.

In 2005, DIDX was the only wholesale service that provided multiple protocols along with necessary success features like transcoding and codec conversions so that our beloved customers like you could and can build business while keeping cost to a minimum.

It’s 2017. Today the cost of a system box, switches and servers are very inexpensive. Bandwidth is practically free.

With this current scenario and after careful consideration, we inform you that from October 1, 2017, DIDX will no longer offer transcoding, i.e., codec conversion for individuals. We will stop this option from the date of October 1, 2017 and forward as we believe it is no longer necessary.

We will keep the standard and primary codecs which are G729, G711u and G711a. They are the most common and most universally compatible.

If you have any query regarding this announcement, feel free to get in touch with our technical team.

DIDX VP Interviews Anthony Minessale II and Brian West of the FreeSWITCH Project

Thousands of customers and vendors that participate in DIDX wholesale direct inward dialing marketplace use open source communications solutions like FreeSWITCH, OpenSIPS, Kamailio and Asterisk. Anthony Minessale and Brian West, co-founder and General Operations Director, respectively, staff and huge worldwide developer community played and still play crucial parts in why and how DIDX enables the globe with wholesale direct inward dialing.

iMiller Public Relations’ Ilissa Miller, Kamailio’s Daniel Constantin-Mierla, TMCnet’s Rich Tehrani and Peter Dunkley contributed the questions and topics that DIDX discusses with Brian West and Anthony Minessalle.

lissa Miller, CEO of iMiller Public Relations
1) OpenSource and OpenCompute projects are changing the way companies develop solutions (such as FreeSWITCH) –
what is a key driver for the development of your platform?  What problems does it solve?
2) How are you leveraging the open compute initiatives to develop the platform capabilities?
Asipto and Kamailio’s Daniel Constantin-Mierla
1) It’s now more than 10 years since the start of the project — with the experience accumulated now, but going back when you started the project, would you do something different?
2) What are the biggest challenges you faced or still face as an open source application that tries to disrupt the rigid and somehow walled garden market of telecommunications?
3) Freeswitch has outstanding support for video conferencing and webrtc. Are these technologies going to change radically the way we communicate? How do you see their impact to residential users as well as enterprises?
4) Can you give some numbers regarding the performances of Freeswitch as a video conference system on a commodity server these days (e.g., price range 2-5000USD, 2-4 CPUs, 8-16GB memory)?
5) How is the performance affected when running on virtualized systems, what are the characteristics of the virtual machine that impact the most?
Rich Tehrani, TMCNet CEO and director of the popular ITEXPO, AllAbouttheAPI, and IoT Evolution and other tech conferences asks:
1)      How did you come up with the idea to launch FreeSwitch?
2)      As the product has evolved – what accomplishment(s) are you most proud of?
3)      Are there any specific geographies or markets most suited to FreeSwitch?
Peter Dunkley, Director of Product Management – Telephony at NewVoiceMedia
1) For the features that are the same as they were as many as ten years ago at the beginning, why have those survived the test of time?
2) A few years ago WebRTC was a hot topic, now people talk about RTC (encompassing more than just audio and video), where does Freeswitch fit with this new (beyond next-generation) technology?
3) Traditionally Freeswitch would have been installed in the “owners” data centre or machine room.  Today everyone is moving to the cloud.  How well does Freeswitch fit into this new deployment model?
4) More and more enterprises and individuals are using technologies like Skype, Skype for Business, Slack, etc.  A lot of these technologies do not require organisations to deploy or own anything, some push a lot of (what used to be network) functions into the client.  What benefits does Freeswitch bring to organisations using these technologies?
5) More generally, what are the biggest three industry developments or changes you’ve observed in the past 10 years? Which industry initiatives and technologies have proved to be over-hyped?
