After we made internet phone call routing software available on cheap standard hardware the first time for FREE in 2005, over the years many of the big players added according features to their hardware products. For example, the very popular FRITZbox by AVM in Germany introduced a SIP registrar to their firmware officially in 2009.
We feel that we contributed to this progress constructively by setting a good example and publishing our use case and proof of concept early enough for the industry to adopt our features and integrate them into their hardware.
Another important manufacturer, Buffalo Inc. (subsidiary of Melco Holdings Inc.), didn’t implement our features on their own but used our software directly by introducing DD-WRT (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ddwrt) as their main firmware, which includes our VoIP software automatically.
For these achievements the Milkfish Projekt Founders were granted the honorary title of Bachelor Knight (Kt.) in a traditional ceremony and in the presence of many honorary guests today by Her Highness Princess Marie of Edinburgh. Thank you very much!
