On Saturday 26th June, at 2:00am we will shift our public facing network over to an OpenSIPs session border controller (SBC).
Why the change?
Mobility, remote working, and collaboration are rapidly changing telephony within the Australia workplace. The migration to OpenSIPs adds significant reliability and scale to our telephony services, and importantly, enables us to expands our offering to support new applications including battery efficient Push Notification Soft-Phones for smart phones, Video Conferencing services, Desktop Soft Phone, SMS, and shortly Google SMS or RCS messaging.
We will move the legacy network IP addresses 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 across to the new OpenSIPS SBC, resulting in no changes to be made by you.
What does this mean to you?
Because we are not changing the IP address itself, as the phones reconnect during their normal registration cycle, they will automatically connect to our new OpenSIPS SBC, without any loss of connectivity.
No changes will be required against telephony equipment including registered handsets, on-premise PBXs and SIP peering equipment. Customers connecting to our network via Peering will not be impacted by the change.
After the migration to OpenSIPS, we recommend that all device registrations use TLS encrypted on port 5061. This provides added security and an ability to prevent routers from attempting to rewrite SIP headers (effectively breaking SIP and the connected call).
For customers with accounts using our Device Provisioning, phones will automatically connect to the new OpenSIPS SBS as part of their normal registration cycles. Note - the majority of our Device Provisioning customers will have been moved onto the new OpenSIPS SBS in advance of 29 May.
