Are you using PortaOne?
|MOR is designed for small and medium-sized VoIP providers that need a robust Class 5 Softswitch, with billing and routing functions at a fair price.
The perpetual license purchase price starts at €3,150 ($4,200). The monthly rental (subscription) price starts at €315 ($420).
|PortaOne is designed for large telecom service providers that can allocate big budgets to their softswitch infrastructure.
The price of an unlimited perpetual license for PortaSwitch is €65,300 ($79,000).
It is expensive to upgrade the system to a higher plan, if your business grows.
Architecture and Implementations
|You can get started with MOR by using a single server solution, where all elements (core, GUI, and DB) are located in one place. This makes the system easy to manage, and you can get going quickly. Once your voice traffic volume increases, you can easily scale your infrastructure.||PortaOne’s main product is PortaSwitch, which has two main components: PortaBilling (BSS and OCS) and PortaSIP (class 4/5 softswitch and SBC).
The installation of PortaBilling requires four Linux servers. This increases your hardware costs.
It takes longer to set up the system, and the infrastructure management becomes more complicated.
|MOR installation can be done both on your server and on a dedicated server, hosted by Kolmisoft. You have full control over the server redundancy and the complete system belongs only to you. There are no shared servers or partitions.||A few third-party providers, such as WorldCall.be and Telinta, offer a PortaOne partition on their servers. You have no control over the infrastructure. If there’s a downtime, you can do nothing about it.|
|MOR has an intuitive and user-friendly interface. The platform is simple and easy to use, and you can learn the configuration basics very quickly. This saves you time and improves the user experience, especially when training new staff.||PortaOne has an advanced administrator’s interface, which is more complicated and difficult to manage. It takes longer to learn the system and it’s harder to make the configurations, especially if you haven’t used any other softswitches before.|
|MOR supports voice broadcasting. This feature is available under the Auto Dialer add-on.||PortaOne doesn’t support voice broadcasting.|
|MOR supports SIP, H323, and IAX2. The IAX2 protocol consumes less bandwidth than other protocols, and can be used in regions where Internet services are expensive.||PortaOne doesn’t support IAX2.|

|We often receive emails from people looking to replace PortaOne. We always ask what difficulties they are having with their system and why they want to replace it. Here are the most common problems with PortaOne that they tell us about.
