Astenomic platform enables savings in operational costs using voice over IP, offering as well a self-managed platform that adapts capabilities to demand.
Astenomic promotes the automated management of a VoIP system using automated deployment open source technologies, the creation of an autonomous system to manage and maintain the whole platform and the use of cloud technologies for adapting capability used at any given time to demand. This solution would allow big companies to generate great savings in operational costs, as it reduces the need for specialized expertise, it avoids most of licensing costs, creating an easily scalable system and reducing the time required for deployment and maintenance operations. Since the platform is based on the use of open source tools that are highly widespread amongst companies, reliability and scalability are guaranteed.
This solution is based on the integration of ideas and technologies already known in the software engineering area but have not yet been applied to other ones such as VoIP communications.
These technologies, which include both self-managed standalone systems and cloud technologies, allow us to manage every aspect of the platform automatically, from the deployment of new features and switchboards to fault management.
For instance, if a switchboard fails, the system would be able to detect it and deploy a new one automatically, establishing the requiered connections for replacing the failed one without human intervention. This would shorten response times and enhance the quality of service.
“Astenomic platform is able to apply current autonomous systems and virtualization technologies to reduce operational costs related to VoIP”
“Current VoIP sytems are expensive (both deployments and maintenance actions), costly to update or deploy and are privative solutions that don’t allow a high degree of customization”
