2017 American Business Awards:  OnSIP wins silver for Free Plan for Developers

The OnSIP Free Plan for Developers

The broad range of meaningful connections that can be fostered by real-time communications is staggering. Doctors can demonstrate procedures using hospital video systems, and school children can learn arithmetic from remote instructors using video-based education tools. The challenge for developers who want to foster these connection lies in building a distributed real-time communications platform from the ground up, or finding an existing platform for integrating voice, video, and messaging into their applications.

That's why we created the OnSIP Free Plan as part of our Communications Platform as a Service offering. We want to give developers a chance to harness our platform to enable real-time communications at no initial cost or commitment.

The OnSIP Free Plan for Developers allows developers to integrate voice, video, and messaging capabilities while retaining standard IP PBX features. With up to 100 simulataneous registrations and 1 million messages per month for free, developers have the freedom and flexibility to quickly build and test their applications.

We also use open standards so developers can use their code library of choice, including OnSIP’s own open source library for JavaScript developers, SIP.js. By reducing barriers to development, we hope to encourage developers to build applications without fear of limitations.

Case Study: LiveNinja Chooses OnSIP PaaS Offering

LiveNinja uses OnSIP's PaaS offering to enable a company’s reps to assist in-store shoppers across different locations. The LiveNinja Kiosk is a retail solution that gives customers the ability to connect with experts from any store location via a video chat kiosk. Forbes has referred to this solution as "one step closer to omnichannel nirvana".

"We chose the OnSIP platform for a few reasons, primarily because it has been battle tested in the telecom industry for over a decade, and would allow us to reach beyond the browser and support standard VoIP phones or even PSTN calls.”

- Carolina Leon, LiveNInja Director of Marketing
