Would you like to find out more about us? Well, we'd like to open our doors to you!  

You already know us as a software publisher, a technology provider and as the designer of the Linphone project. We offer you a complete, secure and interoperable unified communications solution for voice and video over IP and instant messaging.

So who is Belledonne Communications? 

Let’s start at the beginning: our company name is ‘Belledonne Communications’ but we’re not a communications agency. Our name is a composition of ‘Belledonne’, the mountain range in our region, and ‘Communications’, the core of our business, which is real-time telecommunications.

Belledonne Communications is an independent company that has been developing open source projects for over 13 years. Does one of our flagship products, such as Linphone, Flexisip or Liblinphone, ring a bell? Belledonne Communications teams have developed, improved and distributed these products to meet your needs.

Founded in 2010 by Simon Morlat and Jehan Monnier, two software development engineers who spent 10 years with Hewlett Packard’s telecom division in Grenoble, the company now employs 25 people, including 17 developers. Over the years, we’ve moved into new markets and expanded our range of services, but our identity has remained the same: 100% developed in France and open source, in the capital of the Alps.
