Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - September 13, 2005

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

September 13, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest.  

Today we will learn about a new promotion in which a famous athlete just might show up at your office or home and thank you for choosing Vonage. We'll hear about a product Vonage is adding to its network that will increase its network capacity. We'll read new Vonage Voip Forum threads from one user who was having trouble getting Vonage to work with his own Web site he was hosting on his server, as well as a thread from a parent who is very glad today that they have Vonage service. 

Vonage In The Headlines

Vonage Gives Thanks By Sending Athletes To User Homes and Businesses

Vonage has just announced a new promotion in which some well-known athletes will go to homes and businesses that use Vonage- and thank them in-person for using the service.

The new "Thanks A Million, America" promotion is Vonage's way of "giving thanks" for customers helping them to exceed one million installed lines.

The active and retired athletes participating in this promotion include: T.J. Ford (Milwaukee Bucks), Derrick Johnson (Kansas City Chiefs), Dominique Wilkins (Retired Atlanta Hawk), Daniel Ewing (Los Angeles Clippers), Sean May (Charlotte Bobcats), Keith Bulluck (Tennessee Titans), Chris Simms (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Shannon Sharpe (Retired Denver Bronco), Luke Walton (Los Angeles Lakers), James Worthy (Retired Los Angeles Laker) and Desmond Howard (Detroit Lions).

Vonage Deploys New Switch/Routers To Increase Network Capacity

Vonage is deploying the Force10 Networks' TeraScale E-Series switch/routers to increase the capacity of its nationwide network and build in the scalability to support an increase in Voip calls over the next several years. 

"We currently complete a high number of calls per week and are seeing an increase that requires a scalable and reliable infrastructure that enables us to grow with demand," said Michael Tribolet, executive vice president of operations for Vonage Networks. "With Force10, we have a high density, resilient solution that gives us the capacity to support the growth of our VoIP network for years."

Vonage says is deploying the Force10 TeraScale E-Series to increase network capacity in points of presence (POPs) nationwide, including New York, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Nashville, Denver and Atlanta. In addition to adding more capacity, Vonage is simplifying the architecture and management of its network by deploying the Force10 TeraScale E-Series in the core, collapsing its distribution and aggregation layers into a single layer. Force10 says its FTOS software not only enables network simplification by providing full Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionality but also delivers the fast convergence times Vonage requires to complete Voip calls.

Force10's FTOS software works in conjunction with the  three-CPU architecture of the TeraScale E-Series to increase the reliability and resiliency of Vonage's network. Force10 says that the E-Series protected memory and processing units for switching, routing and management functionalities ensure that a failure or attack on one process does not impact other processes while full component redundancy ensures that calls are not dropped in the event of a failure.

OK, this is deep geek stuff here, but some of you tech types may want to know what's making things run here.

Force10 explains the TeraScale E-Series supports 672 line-rate Gigabit and 56 line-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, enabling Vonage to process more traffic on a single system. Additionally, the five Terabit backplane of the TeraScale E-Series provides the system capacity to accommodate future density increases as well as the transition to 40 or 100 Gigabit Ethernet without a backplane or chassis upgrade. 


On The Vonage Voip Forum

On a new Vonage Voip Forum thread named cant get my website to work, new Vonage Forum Member charast posts an issue involving his suspicions that his Vonage setup is preventing any traffic from getting through to the website he is hosting on his system.

"I have my own website that I host on my own server in my home," charast explains. "I have cable internet and DynDNS to translate my DHCP address from my internet provider to my internal server." 

He then explains his current setup: cable modem goes to the WAN port on the VoIP modem, the PC jack on the back of the Voip modem to the WAN port on his Linksys router. "Then, I have the servers connected to the router," he writes. 

The thing is, most everything is working for charast, but not everything.

:I am able to get my Voip service, and I have full access to the internet from all stations including the web server," he writes. "Also, my DynDNS client is getting the correct IP address populated to it. However, I am unable to get any traffic thru to my website at all."

Several Vonage Forum Members offered helpful suggestions. Charast, however, has posted an update that he has solved the problem. By the way, I'll say it again here- it is always helpful that when you've solved a problem you've created a thread about, you repost that the issue has been taken care of. It helps two ways: if you explain how you addressed the problem, other Vonage Forum Members may learn from your solution. Also, those Forum Members who give advice will be able to concentrate on those unresolved questions from fellow Members.

OK, let's get back to charast.

"I got it working," charast writes." I had to put the router in front of the phone adapter and set the phone adapter to have a static IP on my subnet. for whatever reason, I just could not get the adapter to forward the packets to the router.... possibly I had a router loop and they were being dropped... strange." 

Only one more slight issue, as charast explains it: "The only issue now is that I cannot get to the config screen of the adapter (even tho' it IS on the same subnet) but that really is not a big deal."

But just in case it is, Vonage Forum Member djino has some advice. 

"Chances are now you may be effected by QoS (Voice Quality) since your VoIP is behind your router," he writes from Ottawa, Canada. "But But, you may not, or may not care."

By the way, knowing that djino is from Ottawa gives me the idea to tell you about our Vonage Canada Forum. Plenty of tips, advice and even a complaint or two about topics of specific interest to VonageCanada users- but enough general interest stuff for everyone to go take a look. Here's the link:

On a new Vonage Voip Forum thread called Vonage Pays Off, Vonage Forum Member galion  writes about a recent experience that most any parent of a teenager will be able to identify with (by the way, we are not there yet, but I know we will be, soon enough).

"Last night Vonage came through with bright stars. My 16 (year-old) daughter was at a friend's house," galion writes. She urgently needed me at 12:47 AM and called the house. 

"We have both the regular number and the toll free number for the kids. The phone rings," galion continues. "I hear my daughter and I am flying down the road. I had reached her, checked all out, and called home to tell her Mother the status within 8 minutes of getting the first call. (Normally a 10 to 15 minute ride excluding getting dressed and composed.)" 

Galion writes to express his relief that "the system worked and recorded the times of all the calls made back and forth. Luckily the problem wasn't extremely serious, but I was glad everything worked.

"I just had to share this, galion adds, "because everything came out OK and I looked at the log today to see all the phone calls. I could even track where her original call came from!

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:, 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 Wednesday morning with our next edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest.
