Determining the “Right” Development/Deployment Platform for Your Voice and Media Applications

Wednesday, June 08, 2011 02:00 PM EDT / 11:00 AM PDT

Ever since the first Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) platform was deployed over 20 years ago, there has been an ongoing debate regarding the “best” way to develop and deploy applications. Even today, the debate goes on with options to choose from such as Customers Premise Equipment (CPE), Hosted Solutions or placing apps in the Cloud. Developers must also consider Open Source alternatives (Asterisk/FreeSWITCH) and more traditional “C” based proprietary APIs. There is also the option to develop and deploy using an XML or Web 2.0 (Ruby, Ruby-On-Rails, Adhearson) type of environment. This webinar exams the pros and cons of many of these environments to help developers and operators choose the one that might be “right” for their particular need.

Specifically, the webinar will examine the following criteria for each environment:
  • Scalability
  • Reliability
  • Ease-of-use and Options for Application Development
  • Flexibility and Issues of Vendor Lock-in
  • Deployment, Field Maintenance and Upgrade Issues

All registrants will be eligible for significant discounts on select Sangoma products until June 30, 2011.
