IVR Junction is released under the Apache License 2.0. You can download the source code from our CodePlex page. In the coming months, we will supplement the source release with additional materials such as blog posts and call flow templates (such as a simple voice forum, a threaded discussion forum, an outbound dialer, and more.)
Although IVR Junction enables researchers and practitioners to set up any voice forum, one of its unique selling points is its distributed architecture. This is especially useful for for establishing:
- A voice forum in a country that has long distance calling rates for different regions. For example, consider a voice forum in India where users are distributed in three geographically dispersed regions, such as Rajasthan, Gujarat and Karnataka. IVR Junction enables:
- Users to make calls to the voice forum at local call rates and while enabling them to connect to users in other calling regions.
- A phone broadcasting system that utilizes a distributed architecture to make outgoing calls at lower call rates.
- A voice forum where users are located in different countries (say in India, US and Egypt) and you want them to interact with each other by dialing a local phone number.
