Open source VoIP development in Romania

No doubt that Romanians love open source. It was proven before with Linux and PHP and now it will be demonstrated again with VoIP/SIP. At least 2 open source VoIP projects were started and heavily developed in Romania:

OpenSER. An open source PBX derived from SIP Express Router. In June 2005, two SER core developers Bogdan-Andrei Iancu, Daniel-Constantin Mierla and one main contributor Elena-Ramona Modroiu (all Romanians) started OpenSER project. Many others joined later.

Yate. An open source IP-PBX developed in C++. For quite some time it was solely developed by Paul Chitescu and Diana Cionoiu, Romanian programmers.

Besides these projects, Asterisk has a solid user base in Romania.

OpenSER is not IP PBX, it doesn't handle media streams. It is mainly a softswitch and VoIP application server.

anonymous: It's misleading to call OpenSER a softswitch and VoIP application server. It is first and foremost a SIP Proxy, and is focused mostly on signalling aspects of SIP.
