Austin-based communications company Telestax has landed $4.7 million to fund its next stage of growth. LiveOak Venture Partners of Austin was the lead investor in the deal. Founded in 2011, Telestax previously raised $1.5 million from investors including Pinnacle Partners.

The company launched its RestcommONE platform six years ago, and it now supports 900 million calls per day and 200 million messages per day on premise, plus 500 million calls per week and 5.5 million messages per week in the cloud.
Restcomm lets web and mobile developers develop, deploy and scale real-time voice, video and messaging applications and services.
