Fonality passes 50 million calls

Fonality has stolen a page from the carriers play-book, and this morning is poised to announce that they’ve recently passed 50 million calls on Fonality based PBX’s, and are currently averaging 1.5 million calls per week.  The opening paragraph of their release (which I received last night) reads:

LOS ANGELES – November 28, 2006 – Fonality®, a leader in open source, Asterisk®-based IP telephony systems, today announced that PBXtra customers have placed more than 50 million calls and are now averaging more than 1.5 million calls per week across its award-winning IP-PBX platform. This rapid ramp in call volume further demonstrates Fonality’s success in the middle market and customer demand for high quality, value priced, reliable and fully supported IP telephony solutions.

This is really smart marketing.  It tells the world that their business has momentum, and provides yet another (although probably small) news pop.  More to the point, it’s something that none of the other Asterisk vendors can claim, because only Fonality’s hybrid model gives them access to this information.  Others can claim downloads, or supply shipment numbers, but Fonality can point to actual usage.
