Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - September 12, 2005


Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

September 12, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest.  While the calendar still says it is summer, it is starting to feel a lot like fall around here - and perhaps you are as well.

Today we will hear about how a New Orleans official in the middle of Hurricane Katrina relief efforts set up his office to communicate with Vonage- while all other forms of phone communication were knocked out. We'll read part of a new Business Week article just this morning about what at least one expert considers about Vonage going public and offering stock for sale. We'll get perspective from a key Vonage tech exec about why the company is quite excited about WiFi phones. We'll read new Vonage Voip Forum threads on how to install the VTech IP 8100 and how to get rid of those annoying stutter tones that tell you if you have voice mail. And finally, in our regular Monday feature, we'll meet our Vonage VoIP Forum Member of the Week. You may not be surprised who it is. 



Vonage In The Headlines

New Orleans City Government Uses Vonage To Communicate

Friday's Wall Street Journal (WSJ) had a fascinating article about how, in the early days of the Hurricane Katrina crisis, city officials in New Orleans wound up using Vonage to communicate with the outside world. Over the weekend, I noticed that Russell Shaw had a report about this in his IP Telephony blog. 

"Cell and land-line service was down. Satellite telephony is expensive, plus the type of satellite phones available to city officials had limited battery life and long charge-up times," Russ writes, citing the WSJ article. "The Voip deployment took place at the Hyatt Hotel in downtown New Orleans. A good part of the city's infrastructure had relocated there as and after the storm hit. 

Russ then quotes the Journal as saying that New Orleans technology department employee Scott Domke "remembered that he recently had set up an Internet phone account with (Vonage)." The WSJ reporter then wrote  that Domke "was able to find a working socket in a conference room and linked his laptop to an Internet connection." 

According to the WSJ, the first outside call using the Vonage connection was made at 12:27 a.m. on Wednesday, August 31. Russ then cites the WSJ account that "eventually, the team was able to get eight lines running on that single Vonage account. One of the incoming calls they fielded later on the evening of August 31 was from President Bush." 

Russ wonders if that was the first Voip call ever participated in by a President of the United States. You know, he may have a point.

Business Week Says Vonage IPO Would Work

An article in the new Business Week mentions that Vonage will have formidable competition from a whole host of cable, traditional phone companies, and Instant Messaging software firms who are expanding their Instant Messaging voice capabilities to a Voip platform.

Still, Business Week's Olga Kharif, as well as at least one of the analysts she interviewed for her article, think Vonage going public and selling their own stock - as they are rumored to be interested in doing - is a good idea. 

"'Vonage can go public in almost any type of equity market,'" Kharif quotes Tim Walsh of investment bank Lane Berry, as saying. She says Berry told her such an Initial Public Offering should be well-received.  

"It's not hard to see why," Kharif writes. "Vonage is a trailblazer in voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), a technology that slashes communication costs by digitizing voices and calls the same way e-mail travels over the Internet. As consumers drop regular phone service in favor of cheaper Web calling, the number of Voip subscribers in the U.S. may rise threefold this year, to 3.25 million." 

Vonage Finalizing Plans for the F1000 WiFi Phone

An article in yesterday's San Jose Mercury-News makes it clear that Vonage is very much looking forward to the release of the new F1000 WiFi phone from UT Starcom. The phone, incidentally, will be released next month.

Louis Mamakos, Vonage's chief technical officer, tells the Mercury-News technology reporter Dawn C. Chmielewski that the WiFi phone is still a work in progress. "He said the phone is in trials to refine the interface," Dawn writes. "And the company has invested lots of time improving its battery life, which the manufacturer claims has now reached five hours of talk time, or 100 hours of standby." 

In Dawn's opinion, "cost is another variable that will determine the success of the WiFi phone. And Vonage isn't volunteering a price yet," she points out.  "'I can't have a widget that costs $250 and go to market with that, if part of the pitch is to look at how much money you can save,'" Mamakos told her.

In the interim, Dawn's tried out the phone herself.

"Once connected, the WiFi phone offered surprisingly crisp, clear reception," she writes. "I wandered around the house, talking, without once losing the connection. I even performed a feat of telephonic bravery, walking in front of a working microwave oven without encountering static or other signal interference."

Walking in front of a microwave with a WiFi phone? I don't know Dawn, but I'd bet she'd say she was doing it for her readers.

Speaking of portable handsets that work with Vonage...

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Vonage Voip Forum Member jazma was "jazzed" up about that new VTech IP 8100. But after encountering a couple of roadblocks during the installation process, jazma decided to start a thread and gave it the title Installation problems on vonage.com/activate.

"When going to vonage.com/activate and entering all required info," jazma writes, "the last step to finish receives an error message. Any ideas why?"

Vonage Voip Forum Member reebok, whose 2,235th post is the most of any of our more than 16,000 members, writes "you should call Vonage and ask them to switch MAC addresses." He tells jazma to give information on the issue besides "it's broke (and) why."

Then jazma posts "I was actually posting for a friend who receives the error message at the last step. I also tried it for her myself, and I also get the error message, even though I have already selected to transfer an existing line." 

"In short jazma adds, "it worked fine when I did it for my phone, but not for hers."

"The MAC address may not be in the Vonage system," Vonage Forum Member KDWycha advises.  "You may need to call tech support and have them manually enter the MAC address instead of activating online."

You may know that when you pick up most phones, if you have incoming voice mail on the line that phone is working with, you will probably hear some "stutter tones." Some people call them "short beeps."

But what if you hear stutter tones and don't have voice mail? Where's the problem?

That was what Vonage Forum Member owg was wondering about. So, he decided to start a thread about the issue. He named it, Stutter Dial Tone but no Voicemail.

"I have deleted all my voicemail but I still hear the stutter dial tone when I pick up," owg writes. "Is something not working correctly?"

Reasonable question, and an interesting one too. The question captured the attention of houuser, who effective a week ago yesterday, has been a Vonage Forum Member for more than two years. And houuser is a user from Houston (get it)? 

So houuser volunteers this advice to this problem: "Try to reset the (voice mail). Call yourself and leave a message, wait a few minutes, and then call and retrieve the message. 

"When you erase the message, to end the call," he adds, use the 'star' sign. That should work (normally)."

And that it did. Yesterday, owg made a post that told houuser he no longer has a problem. "Thanks, the stutter tone is gone this morning," owg wrote. "I guess it is just a timing thing."

Speaking of "timing," it is time for our Vonage Voip Forum Member of the Week. You know, in our four editions last week, seemed like almost every answer to the forum threads I highlighted was provided by scerruti. Steve is from Mechanicsville, Va.- and that's relevant considering he has so much "mechanical" and technical knowledge about how Vonage works. He's often first on the case with helpful replies. 

A software developer, Steve has even posted a couple of utilities for Vonage users. Here's a  link to his page . And if you want to read some of Steve's recent posts, click here.

As we close out today's Digest, I'd like to remind you once again about some more options you have to receive the Vonage Voip Forum Digest every day. If you go to this page: http://www.vonage-forum.com/syndication.html, you will see a list of RSS Newsreaders from which with one or two clicks, you'll be able to get your Digest delivered directly to your Newsreader each morning. The Newsreaders we've linked to on that page include such reliable and trusted services as Bloglines, Feedster, My Yahoo!, Newsgator and Feedburner. I am open to add others, just contact me with the info of the Newsreader.

That's what's hot about Vonage today. We'll be back on Tuesday morning with our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest.
