“We were jumping on that train very early,” says Christian Stredicke, serving the MSPs, Vodia is marking a decade as a leader and pioneer in offering PBX software that effectively turns mobile phones, laptops, PCs and standard VoIP phones into clients everyone in an organization can use for communication. Vodia has held the vision of enabling communication from many devices, which enables what we now call hybrid work. “People should be able to work from anywhere,” says Stredicke. Even a decade ago, Vodia saw that the browser would play a larger and larger role. In this podcast we learn how Vodia saw the possibilities a decade ago and embraced them. Stredicke discusses how real time communications, and WebRTC, moved functions, including voice communication to the browser. Along the way, Vodia has been careful not to get too far ahead of customers and clients. Stredicke discusses how listening, patience, and pragmatism has tempered Vodia’s approach, by meeting immediate demands and needs while architecting for the future with products that anticipate customer migration to embrace mobility and browser-based options. “The personal touch is something we value a lot” adds Stredicke.

Remote work, fueled by cloud computing, is changing how we connect beyond traditional offices. Telephones remain vital, demanding solutions beyond basic call forwarding. Emulating extensions, with call control functions, becomes essential for effective remote communication. Options like home IP phones and softphones blur the line between office and remote work. The emphasis is on replicating a seamless phone experience in the era of flexible work arrangements.
Addressing a challenge with LDAP, VoIP phones lack the ability to write new contacts to the address book. For users of snom phones, a solution involves utilizing the snom button mode, specifically the "keyevent" mode with the F_ADR_BOOK parameter. This configuration enables users to add phone numbers directly from the phone keyboard, bypassing the need for PBX login and web interface use. This versatile approach can also be applied to other functions and is similarly available for Grandstream, HTek, and Yealink phones.
