Project History

From sipX – pbx to ecs to com an evolution…

When Jay Batson formed Pingtel in the late 1990’s he probably did not envision sipXcom or an open source project. But in 2004 Pingtel sponsored SIPfoundry.org and contributed quite a few lines of PBX source code to the sipXpbx project (later renamed sipXecs). A number of active developers from outside Pingtel began contributing heavily. In the spring of 2007, the project structure and licensing changed to reduce complexity and potential usage conflicts. Nortel acquired the Pingtel assets and hired the developers in August of 2008. The Nortel SCS500 was based on code from the sipXecs project. Nortel greatly expanded the developer base and the features of both its SCS product and the sipXecs open source project. In January of 2009, Nortel declared bankruptcy; while in bankruptcy, development and contributions to the open source project continued, and in December of 2009, the commercial product was acquired by Avaya.In March 0f 2010, Avaya stopped contributing source code to the project. At that time eZuce, Inc. was founded to maintain the project at SIPfoundry and deliver commercial solutions and support around the sipXecs software. eZuce became the primary contributor, maintainer and sponsor for SIPfoundry until February 2015. Citing differences with the SIPfoundry board, eZuce decided in February 2015 to fork sipXecs to form sipXcom. Along with the community, eZuce continues to improve and expand the code base.
