New Feature Sneak Peek: In-Browser Calling with a Single Click

If you have sharp eyes, you may have noticed a new addition to our website— a small detail with a big implication. On the top right of this page, you'll see a button with our phone number. If you're using the latest Chrome or Firefox browser version, you can click to make an instant web call— no dialing or plugins required. Below is a closer look. (Oh, why don't you just give it a try? All prank calls may be recorded for quality assurance purposes.)

What is this button? This is the latest feature we're working on (now beta testing) here at OnSIP: InstaCall! The InstaCall button allows you to call OnSIP in Chrome or Firefox for a voice or video (coming soon) chat. And here's the best part: the button will soon be available as a customizable feature that can be embedded freely on any HTML webpage.

Toll Free 844 Code Vanity Numbers Now Available

OnSIP is happy to announce that we will begin taking vanity requests for the new 844 toll free code beginning December 9th 2013.

A vanity number is a toll free (800, 888, 877, 866, 855 or 844) number that has specific digits that you would like. Typically a vanity number will contain digits that spell out a word or phrase that is important to you. Or, you may want a specific series of numbers. OnSIP can manually check to see if your specific toll free vanity needs can be met.

Toll free vanity numbers are a great marketing tool for your business. If your ideal toll free number was already taken in the past, now may be your chance to acquire the number you’ve always wanted in the new 844 toll free code.

7 Rules of Crisis Communications Useful to Service Providers

As the Public Information Officer of my fire company, I'm sometimes required to take classes to bolster my knowledge in the field. Before taking a 2-day training on crisis communications in an all-hazards or terrorist event, I was wondering how I can take what I would learn and apply it to my work at OnSIP. I kept thinking, “We’re a communications company. There must be something we can use here.”

As it turns out, I was right. The knowledge I gained at the class can be applied to just about any business dealing with extraordinary issues that disrupt the way their company functions. Outside of being a worthwhile learning experience, the class was also held on a remarkable floating museum.

VoIP Users Conference Gets Underneath the Hood of GetOnSIP

The VoIP Users Conference (VUC) is a weekly live discussion about VoIP, SIP, Asterisk and all kinds of telephony-related topics. The conference has been running weekly since March 2007. On Friday at 12PM, OnSIP CTO John Riordan and Lead Developer Will Mitchell are being featured on the program to discuss the inter-workings of GetOnSIP.

To date, GetOnSIP is the most stable and interoperable implementation of WebRTC and SIP. The OnSIP team has extended our platform to support SIP over WebSockets, allowing developers to utilize JavaScript SIP clients like JsSIP and sipML5 to build phones in a browser and register them with OnSIP (See more information in our developer resources). OnSIP currently supports voice and video calls between WebRTC supported browsers, as well as voice calling between standard SIP phones and WebRTC supported browsers; video calling is supported between some SIP software phones that utilize video codec VP8. For the most up-to-date information, visit our live interoperability chart.
