We actually just spun up FusionHub servers directly in our Geo-Redundant Data Centers for VoIP. Not Broadsoft backbone but FreeSwitch and offer direct SD-WAN access directly to all of our DC’s. It works flawlessly.
It’s all in your outbound policies and obviously like you mentioned knowing which ports your provider uses.
We were once doing what you were doing where we hosted a FusionHub Instance say at our HQ but then wold have to redirect traffic from there to all DC’s for VoIP. Great but you only benefit with SpeedFusion to the FusionHub instance.
So now we have FusionHub instances sitting directly on our LAN in ALL data centers so our clients have a direct path right to servers. It’s pretty awesome.
It would be cool if Pepilnk in the future could come out with an app that could load balance traffic directly on the smartphone, like a FusionHub Smart app and you could connect directly to DC’s for your VoIP provider and still prioritize traffic directly on your smartphone with outbound policies.
Or at least an app on the desktop for remote users that don’t sit behind a Balance device. This way no matter where they are they have a direct shot to DC’s for VoIP and can create outbound policies or IT can preconfigure for the user.
Just saying it would be a compelling offer for a lot of people who are mobile and need security assuming they don’t have access to applications like ZRTP for VoIP.
