Both are open source VoIP solutions and both offer the class 4 Softswitch with billing solution. There are many aspects to consider and we are going to compare the ease of adopting these open source VoIP solutions.
1. ASTPP has an array of resources to help to make it easier to adopt this platform
ASTPP offers a wide array of resources, so this smart telephony platform can be adopted with ease. From installation to the right way of using this software and how to increase the business growth, ASTPP has many resources to offer such as:
- User manual

- And many more
A2Billing also has some of the options mentioned above, but with poor reliability. For example, documentation of the software is outdated and the Forum of it often stays down.
2. You can join a training program to be pro in using ASTPP

A2Billing has no availability of official training programs. You either need to take the help of a company or freelancer, which may or may not cover the expert facts.
3. ASTPP has a highly proactive community
When you use an open source VoIP solution, you rely more on community support. Any company would choose open source option to save some bucks. If you need to invest in freelancers for support, then it doesn’t save money as expected. Thus, active community support is necessary.
ASTPP has forums with the most proactive community. During working days, one receives the response and resolution within a day. On the contrary forum of A2Billing is often down.
4. You can switch to the enterprise version anytime you want to
If you use class 4 Softswitch solution, it means you are going to run a wholesale VoIP business. In the future, you may want to use more VoIP solutions to offer more services and need the paid support from experts. This arrangement is possible with ASTPP as ASTPP has an enterprise version, which offers multiple VoIP solutions and technical support from experts. You don’t find any option related to this with A2Billing.
