A walk through YateBTS history


It started with an open-source telephony server

Started in 2004, YateBTS has metamorphosed from a group of liked minded individuals, the Company Null team, to the next generation innovation in the telecommunication sector. It all started with a Launch of an Open-source telephony server as a VoIP/PSTN engine, which was extended with various modules. It was initially designed for VoIP and TDM but became scalable and suitable not just for small private networks, but for Large multi-site installations.


Google voice was launched based on Yate

This was proven by Google voice, which was launched based on the Yate Software in 2009. It didn’t take long for us to develop ss7 over IP and implemented it for our first client, SILEK.


SS7Ware in California

This gave birth to the company SS7Ware in California, the USA in 2011, as a subsidiary of Null. As at the same time, Google Voice had reached 50 million users.

Later on, in 2011, we successfully incorporated SS7Ware as a Romanian branch in America and Opened an office in San Francisco in 2012 with a signed partnership with Range Networks, a company owned by David Burgess.


Legba LTE

David Burgess opened a new company in Romania, named Legba after his camp from Burning man.

The camp Papa Legba was the voodoo god of telecommunications.
