SIP Sorcery Free Accounts

Free accounts have been re-enabled on as part of the move of the service to a freemium model.

The free accounts come with:

  • Unlimited SIP accounts,
  • One SIP Provider (registration enabled),
  • One Dial Plan.

There are some limitations attached to the free accounts to limit the resources they can consume and also to reduce the ability of the accounts to be used for fraudulent purposes which unfortunately occurs quite a bit. The limitations are:

  • The dial plan is limited to a single execution instance (note that a dial plan execution instance is not the same thing as a simultaneous call which are unlimited),
  • The dial plan database access functions are disabled. Those functions are a favourite for fraudsters to use to generate usernames and passwords to try against providers,
  • The old mysipswitch dial string formats that allow the username and password to be specified are not supported. Again due to the attention of fraudsters.

Due to free accounts being available on the system has been shut down.

    Will the limitation of new opening of free account apply to the old free accounts? Specifically “The dial plan is limited to a single execution instance” part. Say I have only one dial plan which handles both dial-in and dial-out. If my one sub account is dialing the other sub account, one account will execute the plan for dialing out and the other account will execute the plan for dialing in. Will this count as 2 instance and cause trouble?

    I’m still thinking about that one but in the meantime the original accounts, which have been assigned a service level of Beta, are not limited in any way. That won’t change for a while and they’ll be an announcement well in advance.

    As for your specific scenario you would probably only have a single dial plan execution anyway. To get two dial plan instances executing the second sub account would have to have a different incoming dial plan from the sub account that was calling it.

      Thank you for the legacy free users love!

      But in a like outpouring of love I was confronted with a 404 error 🙁

      OT: Have you considered sharing your brain dumps to jitsi project? For exposure and new minds of SS feedback. They have similar goals excluding media.
