Sippy SoftSwitch Announcements
We have a few items we’d like to share with our client base to keep them informed of whats going on in the world of Sippy. We are pretty excited to talk about some of the great things we have been working on and its time to share. We wanted to touch on three topics today: The Release of 5.1 to production, Upcoming trade show and conferences, and Updated communications with our sippy community. Lets just dive right in.
Several of our clients have participated in our 5.1 Alpha and Beta Program. We are very thankful for the many clients who have worked with us to try out our new release and provide the feedback necessary to make a great product for everyone. With the feedback provided in the alpha and beta programs we are now pleased to announce the first production system installations of our 5.1 software will be rolled out this week.
We will have a good opportunity to see our work run production traffic. We will also be collecting very useful benchmark metrics as a result of the changes made in 5.1. We will begin our rollout process through to the customers using our hosted solutions. We will share those metrics in a future blog post. We will then continue working through the deadicated systems and for customers with active support agreements.
We have updated the release notes for 5.1 and those details can be found here. There are a number of new features including SSL certificate generation, revised invoicing system, database optimizations, improvements for handling rates and routes and a whole host of other changes to improve operating efficency and profitability.
With the upcoming release we also have our team busy in the field. We will have representation available in both Europe and North America at a pair of events. You can catch up with members of our team at the OpenSIPS summit or ITW in Chicago over the next few weeks.

Our CEO Maxim Sobolev can be found in Amsterdam between May 1st and May 4th at the OpenSIPS Summit.

The Internet of Things space is huge with billions of small devices hitting the market monitoring and tracking a wide assortment of different data points.
