About The Speaker

Anthony Minessale

Anthony has more than 25 years of experience in software engineering, beginning with the web hosting boom in the mid-'90s, which eventually led to a career dedicated to advancing Software-Defined Telecommunications. Anthony was the original founder and author of an Open-Source Software-Defined Telecommunications platform called FreeSWITCH, created in 2005. Today, the FreeSWITCH platform is used as a critical component by enterprises worldwide, including Zoom|Phone, Five9, Amazon Connect, Vonage, and Dialpad. With the promise of 5G, the Internet became increasingly reliable for bi-directional communication. In late 2017, Anthony founded SignalWire together with a team of the best minds in the industry. The goal of SignalWire is to make communication and programmability seamless between all devices with Software-Defined Telecom. SignalWire vastly simplifies otherwise complex operations and infrastructure requirements. With SignalWire, embedding telecommunications services into any existing organization becomes viable and speeds up any existing initiative in an era where go-to-market is critical. Its investors include the founders of Zoom, Yahoo and Barracuda Networks, T-Mobile ventures, Deutsche Telekom, STORM Ventures, and P7 Ventures.
