Mission accomplished - VoIP Softphone for Mac
One of my greatest frustrations with Mac has been the lack of a VoIP SoftPhone.
To be completely clear, when I say VoIP SoftPhone I mean that the way you would mean "email client".
I’m not interested in a SoftPhone tied to a particular service provider or telco organization.
This search has been frustrating me for almost two years now. In that time I've tried and rejected so many SoftPhones I've lost count.
I know I've been to Pure-Mac’s VoIP page about 600 times. I've also been to VoIP-Info’s phones page about 600 times.
I've tried everything from CounterPath to Ubiquity and had not found any SoftPhone that was both high quality and configurable.
I'm happy to say the search is over. iSoftPhone from Call4Mac is a robust SIP SoftPhone.
It supports everything you would expect and enables peer to peer calling on the LAN via Bonjour.
Configuration is a snap and the implementation of SIP is flawless. I’ve connected iSoftPhone to OpenSER, SER, Asterisk, BroadVoice, Teliax, and Gizmo with no issues.
Perhaps most importantly, the call quality is excellent. Even over wifi on my MacBook Pro – with the usual complement of just about everything running – the call quality is excellent, even with the built in microphone/speakers.
There is a slight echo for the other party, but this is easily overcome by plugging in headphones and using the built-in microphone.
I'm very exited about their latest (March 25th) version for Alcatel-Lucent.
