Digium: Doubling Annual Sales with Open Source VoIP
,----[ Quote ]
| We thought it would be good to give open source VOIP pioneers Digium equal
| time, given our recent post about Freeswitch. Digium's founder, Mark Spencer
| was the original author of the Asterisk PBX, one of the more mature open
| source VOIP platforms. The company's VP of Marketing, Bill Miller, told me
| that "Last year was a big year for us; at the year-end we had finished our
| 24th straight profitable quarter. We had grown to about 130 employees." While
| Digium doesn't disclose financial figures, its sales have reportedly been
| doubling over the past few years and it has at least $14 million in venture
| capital since launching.
At times of recession, Free software flourished, on top of Linux.
Linux dominating VoIP devices?

| Trolltech says its development framework and software stack for mobile
| devices was selected by Skype as the preferred platform for Skype-certified
| VoIP (voice-over-IP) phones. Additionally, the Qtopia framework/stack has
| been used in about 40 VoIP devices, making it the "dominant Linux
| development platform for VoIP/WiFi devices," according to Trolltech.
