Are you going to have incoming calls as well? If so, how does the
soft-switch handle two concurrent calls to the same number?

This seems like a serious defect in the soft-switch. I can understand if it
allows you to specify only one call per SIP registration, but to hard-code
that limit seems pretty silly. Can you find out more about the soft-switch
in question and see if that limitation is flexible?
