This switch is an excellent choice for someone that wants to manage their own switch and they are not a serious techie.
The MOR is like a Luxury Sports Car... many many features. and very nice to look at.
There is a online Wikipedia that is pretty good and can help quite a lot. Unfortunately the examples are sparse and pretty obviously not originally written in English.
MOR is built on top of Asterisk, so it's never going to have more than 800-1000 concurrent calls on a single server. Although it is possible to cluster additional servers for more capacity.
The good things are many.. It's easy to learn, and it looks nice. There are many features and additional add-on modules for Call-Shop, or Calling Card, or DID's and it has an auto-dialer which is really cool and handy. The MOR is a class 4 AND a class 5 soft-switch, so it has PBX like functions. It's a very cool switch.
It runs on a single server which must be strong. We run ours on dual xeon with 48g of ram and pair of solid state disc drives in a mirrored RAID.
The things that are not so good is that the manual is weak, although not as weak as the MVTS documentation.
Diagnostics are weak. You'll need extra tools. And root level access to the server. You'll need phpMyAdmin and WireShark to figure things out.
All Reporting is weak too. that's another reason why you need phpmyadmin
One big bitch is that the PBX can not xfer a call. Well I think
it can but that feature is disabled to prevent hackers from doing something naughty. So it's only usable as a sort of intercom.
I have only played around with the Call-Shop module a little bit and it's straight forward and easy to implement. DID's is a little confusing and I am not a wizard there. The switch works great for wholesale.
One of the very coolest things about this switch is that it has a built in auto-dialer and a IVR system. You can use this for bulk route testing. It's awesome.
Built into the switch is a rate sheet manager. It's fantastic and really easy to use. You can upload any number of rate decks and be able to instantly compare everyone's rates. The rate sheet manager alone is worth $40 per month. We give people a free reseller account with zero ports just so they can use the rate sheet manager.
Another big problem is when more than one reseller is sharing the switch. This is because only one IP address is shared by all the resellers on the switch.. It is not possible for one reseller to route traffic to another reseller on the same switch.
We do manager three of these switches and we are able to give a high level of support.
If you are thinking about a switch of this caliber we can help you get setup and operational. It works like this:
You can have it however you like
- We have a resource that will install on your server for a one time payment and no other charges from that point on.
- Or you can rent and pre-pay month to month flat rate.
- Or you can rent a reseller account with a shared IP address on a MOR switch we manage.
Let me be clear we are not selling you a MOR license. We are a tech support & marketing company. We help people manage their own MOR switch, and we don't ask questions or make you prove anything to us.
If you just want to rent a reseller account with a shared ip address we can accommodate you on our MOR switch which has a unused capacity in excess of 800 concurrent calls.
We are not a one man band. We are mostly computer techs and engineers. We have 5 people on our NOC team that contribute to our tech support and NOC services. Two are very knowledgeable and very available to us.
If you have a MOR switch now and you need support or management services we might be able to help you. We know other techs that freelance and we can hook you up.
What does it cost? Depends on many many factors. Here are some typical examples:
You get a reseller account and share the ip address. you do not get root access. You get 200 concurrent calls, you have administrative permission for your account and you can create your own vendors and customers. Your customers can have a web portal to see their traffic. You also get our tech support and noc services. For this you pay $10/week + .001 per minute. So if you have some down time, it only costs you $40/month to have your switch. Post pay with PayPal

- Some people need more than 200 channels and that's too much traffic for our shared switch, so they need to get their own dedicated server. For them we can negotiate and we are not greedy.
