Barracuda Discontinues CudaTel


Hula Networks is disappointed to hear that Barracuda Networks plans to end of life the CudaTel PBX product that we have supported heavily over the last 7 years.

As we learn more about Barracuda’s support plans through the End of Life process we will be reaching out to all of our CudaTel customers and supporting their transition to a new phone system. This news is breaking now and as we get more information we will keep our customers informed.



Barracuda Phone System End of Life: A message from Ken Grohe, SVP & GM, Emerging Products



At Barracuda we have always strived to make great products that deliver ease of use and affordability. We are constantly evaluating our product portfolio in the context of our overall strategic goals. With that in mind, we have begun a process to focus our resources on our most strategic initiatives and to drive more innovation and faster growth within those product areas.

As such, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue Barracuda Phone System (formerly CudaTel). We do not take this decision lightly. As the industry shifts toward unified communications in the cloud, we decided to discontinue our PBX appliance and focus our resources on our own cloud initiatives around Azure, AWS, and Office 365. We appreciate every Barracuda Phone System customer and the hard work and dedication of our product team over the past 7+ years.

Customer satisfaction is central to everything we do at Barracuda. That said, we are pleased to announce that we are working with RingCentral, the leader in Gartner’s 2015 Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications Worldwide, to provide an alternative for Barracuda Phone System customers. We’re working closely with RingCentral to offer discounted pricing and a utility for seamless migration for all Barracuda Phone System customers. For more information, please visit

We will continue to support our users through this transition. We put together a detailed transition plan for our partners and customers, and look forward to helping customers through this change.
