Outline: Introducing Cloud APIs for jambonz
Dave Horton: Creator of jambonz (open source CPaaS) and drachtio (open source SIP server and Node.js application library)
jambonz is the open source CPaaS designed for the needs of communication service providers and available under the MIT license to run on your own or hosted infrastructure. jambonz allows service providers to easily plug in their own carriers and speech services, and is designed specifically for privacy-conscious service providers that want to minimize the exposure of their customer’s data to third-party platforms.
In this talk, Dave will review the key features of jambonz and introduce jambonz cloud APIs, which are currently in private beta and scheduled for public release at the end of Q2. Using the cloud APIs via the hosted jambonz service is a great way to get familiar with the platform and start running some traffic. Dave will walk through the complete process of provisioning a service and bringing up applications using the cloud APIs.
You can ask Dave any questions about this presentation in the comments section of this weblog, or contact him directly with the info at the end of his presentation.
Dave kicks off by referencing Dan Jenkin’s excellent TADSummit EMEA Americas 2020 presentation, “The Difference Between Your Project Succeeding or Burning To A Crisp Is Actually You.” Where Dan highlighted the importance of taking a leaf out of Element‘s book – make it extremely simple to sign up to the project’s cloud platform. And that’s just what Dave has done.
I love the frank review Dave provides on the challenges of completing this “last mile” of the project. It’s not as fun as building the core, and it has a significant opportunity cost and out of pocket expenses. This is often why commercial organizations sweep in and use a project to help create multi-tens of billions businesses with little to no kick-back to the project.
Dave’s career history of starting on the commercial / closed-source side of programmable communications for the first half. Then moving to open-source for the later half. Helps him understand the importance of this last mile investment.
The demo Dave provides of setting up Jambonz is amazing, just watch the video. In just a few minutes he has a full voice-centric CPaaS operational and running live services. Having helped many companies through this process over the years, this is revolutionary.
Please join Dave’s private beta of Cloud APIs for jambonz by contacting him here. You’ll be glad you did.
Thank you Dave for the privilege of helping announce to the world the availability of Cloud APIs for jambonz. This is exciting and disruptive to the programmable communications market.
