We’ve built a completely new mobile integration that works out-of-the-box with any version of FreePBX and we would love to hear your feedback!
While you can love Zulu or not the idea of having a mobile and desktop apps completely integrated with your IP PBX is a great one.
Nevertheless, we started our project without having any idea about Zulu, we just knew that nowadays those who have phone systems without native mobile integrations would have problems of setting up their systems to enable remote work for their employees and team members.
And problem #1 is security. Enabling employees to connect their extension from anywhere means either deploying VPN (which adds many complications and decrease stability) or just giving access to your server(s) from the internet (which opens it to the variety of security threats). We’ve overcome this by providing a forefront infrastructure to the existed phone system so that there would be no need deploying VPN or opening the server(s) to the wild.
Problem #2 is call quality. Working not from corporate network means working form places where internet connection is not always stable due to a variety of factors (low Wi-fi/LTE signal, unstable ISP, etc.). Solution for problem #1 partly mitigates this by providing the closes route for a call to your phone system while packaging data very effectively using sophisticated Opus codec.
Problem #3 is the connectivity. In addition to the solution for problem #1 and 2, push-notifications is something that allows us to not miss an important call while working on the backyard. From our previous projects, we’ve accumulated huge experience in providing messaging communications to the thousands of users. This thing is vital and it just works.
And this is just scratching the surface. If you have any questions please ask what’s on your mind!
We are currently in closed beta and we’re hoping for support from the FreePBX community, so if you like what we do and like to keep it going, there is plenty of great stuff ahead, so please join it here - https://ringotel.co/shell
