Well this is just me opining here, but if I were to rate each platform heres
how I would rate them

ease-of-maintain: Excellent
ease-of-implement: Excellent
 scalability: Very Good

ease-of-implement:Need a PHD in OpenSer Scripting
 scalability: Excellent

FreeSwitch is easy to maintain and configure/implement the configurations
are straight forward, there are tons of examples on how to set up call
routing and technology connections (ie: SIP, Jingle, whatever), and in
Performance has already proven it can handle very high call setups/sec (>
500) and a very high concurrent call count (in no-media mode as a B2BUA >
2500 concurrent call legs) I use it in a Outbound Call center environment
and would have to guess that the number of concurrent calls would shoot up
if we not beating it todeath on with that type of traffic.

OpenSER is extremely Scaleable... And can litterally handled 1000s of call
setups per second, but major drawback is the configurations... There is a
very high learning curve and it forces to you learn how SIP works you must
script out each step of the way... There are tools to help with this but
they only get you close, you still have to tweak them out for most

Both platforms offer different methods for accessing a DataBase backend for
dynamic/realtime configuration updates, CDR collection etc...

Hi all,
I am currently evaluating either using Freeswitch or Openser for my SIP
server. I am trying to look for information that can tell me the difference
between the two in terms of ease-of-maintain, ease-of-implement, and
scalability.  If you have such kind of information, would you please share
with me?  
Thank you very much for your input.
Best Regards,
