Features:

  • Release Highlights
    • New provider profile: "Deutsche Telekom DeutschlandLAN SIP-Trunk Pooling". We recommend using a LANCOM router.
      Developer Comment: STARFACE now natively supports Deutsche Telekom's DeutschlandLAN SIP-Trunk. However, we continue to recommend using a LANCOM router from Deutsche Telekom when using this SIP Trunk. Alterations to the SIP parameters of Deutsche Telekom's service will be published immediately or at the next opportunity to Deutsche Telekom's LANCOM routers, should these be necessary. This means that you will always be up to date with the latest sip profile for your DeutschlandLAN SIP-Trunk connection. As we are not proactively informed of changes to the platform, any changes on our end can only be done after the fact, which would mean a certain amount of downtime for the customer.
