FreeSWITCH is a Software Defined Telecom Stack enabling the digital transformation from proprietary telecom switches to a versatile software implementation that runs on any commodity hardware. From a Raspberry PI to a multi-core server, FreeSWITCH can unlock the telecommunications potential of any device. Combined with our hosted cloud platform, SignalWire, FreeSWITCH can interconnect with the outside world and scale to any size.
FreeSWITCH is available on Github in source code format. You can checkout the development branch and build for many popular platforms including Linux, Windows, MacOSX and BSD. There is an issue tracker and pull request system available as part of the repo online.
