We support both.
What's the difference betwen SIP and IAX
In short, it's the way the VoIP packets are delivered to you.
SIP - Requires an data port for signaling, and a range of audio ports - known as RTP ports.
For our signaling, we use UDP port 5080.
Our RTP range is from UDP port 4000 - 32768.
IAX - Just uses one port, port 4569.

Do you support FreeSWITCH?

How do I register to your servers?
server address: sip.fonswitch.com
port number: 5080
username/authorized username: will be found in your SIP Settings.
password/secret: will be found in your SIP Settings.
We use SRV records to have your network automatically figure out the needed ports. In most cases you will not need to set a port number - however, if you must, you will need to use port 5080.
What is the dial plan / pattern to dial out?
When dialing US numbers, you will dial 1+NXX-NXX-XXXX (1+the area code+the number).
When dialing numbers outside the US, you will dial 011NX. (011+the country code+the number).
The only exception will apply to iNum numbers, you can dial them striaght out, 883X. (8835555551212).
