I6NET is proud to announce next VXI* releases for Asterisk PBX will provide advanced Cloud Telephony for real. This approach will free carriers and enterprises to get their own Virtual IVR services powered by VoiceXML / SIP, the open standard speech XML language and VoIP protocol. Today traditional, Hosted Telephony or Phone 2.0 API services don’t provide to users a full access to their own IVR platforms management and engines control in the Cloud. With VXI* for Cloud, you will run any standard VoiceXML 2.0+ application for inbound / outbound telephony services by yourself in your own virtual OS server environment. Coming soon next days: VXI* Cloud Beta Program launching!
