BladeWare … No Lie
Ta Da! It is with great pleasure that we announce the availability of BladeWare release 2.4.8. Here’s why.
Prior to BladeWare 2.4.3, there were errors in BladeWare’s SIP implementation where it would send responses meant to indicate that BladeWare had completed a task, such as transitioning from G.711 to T.38, prior to the completion of the task. Yes, BladeWare was telling little SIP lies. Obviously, this could cause some problems if the SIP peer responded very quickly with the next transaction. In release 2.4.3 we began to stop telling these lies, but the changes in timing exposed the SIP service manager to some heretofore unknown stresses. Result: instability under heavy load, causing significant support problems for those affected, and for that we apologize.
But now, the good news: We have tested this release more extensively than any previous release, and it’s rock solid … no lie! That means it’s safe to put 100-port systems up on quad-core PCs. Our claim: today, BladeWare is the most robust and full-featured fax platform (both FoIP and PSTN) on the market, and is available at a fraction of the price of competitive systems.
