Milkfish Founders knighted in Edinburgh

Posted on Sunday 1 April 2012

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!

The Accolade - Edmund Blair Leighton (1853-1922)

Milkfish-dd v1.0 released

Posted on Monday 19 May 2008

After almost one year of preparations the Milkfish Software now furnishes DD-WRT v24 Router Firmwares with PBX-like VoIP features, turning DD-WRT Routers into SIP-aware Firewalls.

We are happy to provide the vivid DD-WRT community with our stable Embedded OpenSER SIP Routing Implementation and the whole Milkfish Toolset and Services around it.

The first release of the Milkfish-dd VoIP Firmware is available at the Milkfish-dd and DD-WRT Download sites. At the latter, it is available for a wide scope of router hardwares.

Screenshots and example configuration steps are available here, the source can be browsed here.

At this point we would also like to give credits for the dedicated assistance we received from our own and the DD-WRT community during development and testing, most notably from Mike and Howard, and of course all the people contributing to the Milkfish-dd User Forum.

Last, not least, we want to thank Sebastian Gottschall, CTO of NewMedia-NET GmbH and stac-wireless Ltd. for his patience when introducing us to the details of his neat Multi-Platform Linux-based Embedded System.
