Worlds largest UC provider, Sangoma Inc., blew up its partners on the occasion of the first DACH Partner Day
5 million active users include the open source telephony products FreePBX and Asterisk today. In 2019, the 25 millionth download of Asterisk was recorded. 50,000 installations / month ... not only the numbers of the Canadian company are dizzy, but also the bodyflying following the formal part of the partner day pushed the limits of the imagination.
How it all started?
Sangoma was founded 35 years ago. In the following years, the company often grew beyond itself. Technological gaps have been closed and the product range has been steadily expanded - primarily through the acquisition of well-known companies (most recently 2018: Digium - the company behind Asterisk). The goal of being able to serve the telecommunications market from a single source spurred on. Today Sangoma is one of the few providers with a complete End to End Unified Communications solution. Well-known telecom companies can be found on Sangoma's customer list.
What sets Sangoma's solutions apart from the competition?
The best value for money, while one of the most flexible telephony solutions with a range of functions is second to none. Even for small and medium-sized customers who do not need the broad functionality right from the beginning, product highlights such as quick installation, (true) zero-touch as well as HotDesking are an important decision factor for the solution.
How it goes on?
Sangoma has been establishing itself in the German-speaking world for two years now - but is still miles away from high brand awareness. The reasons for this can not be found in the lack of functionality for the DACH room, but in the fact that Sangoma prefers to invest his profits in the daily further development of the solutions. Hundreds of Sangoma developers, on the one hand, and a broad open source community on the other hand, ensure that customer needs worldwide are covered and developed on a daily basis. Next year, the existing hardware offering will be expanded again. And who follows the development of Sangoma, should not be surprised about any further acquisitions in the next few months.

Telecommunications in the blood and on the market for almost 20 years - media.tel is one of the first VoIP providers in Austria.
