Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - September 20, 2005

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

September 20, 2005

By Daniel Connor

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

You'll never guess where I am right now. I am on the Interstate, driving to Boston to attend the Fall 2005 VON (Voice Over Internet) trade show. Lots of new gizmos and other stuff that you can, or soon will be able to use with your Vonage service.  I've pulled over to a donut shop off one of the highway exits, where I am filing this edition from my laptop over my Verizon high-speed connection. Might even grab a donut after I send this file off to our Web host..

Today we will read about what solution Vonage has chosen to enable a key component of its E-911 service. We'll also learn about some equipment Vonage will use to test Voip over Wi-Fi. We'll read a Vonage Voip Forum thread on a router that automatically resets itself at the same strange our in the middle of the night – every night. Another thread we'll look at concerns a Vonage user who can't seem to get a dial tone.


Vonage In The Headlines

Vonage Chooses Level 3 for Nomadic E-911

Vonage says it has chosen has Level 3 Communications, to enable critical components of what is generally referred to as "nomadic E-911" service.  That's the kind of service that makes it possible for emergency responders to find the location of Vonage or other Voip calls placed to "911" even if the call is placed from a different location than the physical address on file for the account.

Under the terms of the agreement, Level 3 will deliver its Level(3) E-911 Direct service to support Vonage's E-911 rollout.

"Vonage is running hard and fast to meet the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) 120-day deadline to turn up E-911 service throughout our footprint. To meet this ambitious goal, physical connectivity is the first critical piece of infrastructure we need to build to get our calls to the selective routers," said Martin Hakim Din, senior vice president, Architecture, for Vonage. "Level 3 offered the comprehensive and reliable set of services that enables us to get these connections up and running."

Level 3 says it will be able to do this because it has network connections to Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) that serve approximately 67% of all U.S. households, with a projected build-out to 70% by the end of 2005. Having network connections to the PSAPs is a necessary component of the delivery of any nomadic E-911 solution, and Level 3 believes that having its network connectivity already in place provides it with an advantage over its competitors.

Vonage says it will utilize Level 3's existing Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) infrastructure for interconnection into hundreds of Selective Routers across the country. The Level (3) E-911 Direct(SM) service provides a critical component of Vonage's E-911 solution needed to comply with the FCC's mandate that all interconnected Voip providers automatically provide E-911 services to their two-way voice customers.

The two companies plan to begin deploying E-911 service for Vonage customers in the fourth quarter of 2005.

"National Emergency Number Association (NENA) looks forward to the E-911 service benefits which should result from Vonage's use of Level 3's established IP network and access to E-911 systems across large parts of the nation," said David Jones, president, NENA. "The Emergency Services Gateway approach is supportive of NENA's Interim Solution (I2) path forward for Voip E-911."

Vonage Announces Wi-Fi Test Solution

Azimuth Systems, Inc., the leading provider of Wi-Fi test equipment, announces that Vonage is using its Azimuth’s W-Series 802.11 test platform to validate Vonage’s Wi-Fi solution for the soon-to-be-released Wi-Fi handset for the residential and SOHO markets.

Earlier this year, Vonage announced its plans to roll out a Wi-Fi handset to augment its broadband VoIP services, offering its customers mobility across 802.11 networks. By standardizing on Azimuth’s VoWi-Fi test solutions, Vonage says it can quickly and easily support that its services are meeting the company’s high quality standards. Both companies say the alliance allows Vonage to assure that its interoperability and performance standards are maintained.

"As the leading provider of full-featured, affordable, broadband phone services across North America, we must be able to certify and validate that our Voip solution, as well as the equipment we are deploying, meets our standards for availability and quality of voice service," said Vonage Chief Technical Officer Louis Mamakos, CTO of Vonage. "Azimuth’s unmatched testing capabilities – particularly in the areas of Wi-Fi performance, multi-vendor interoperability, and industry standards conformance – help us support that our customers receive a high level of satisfaction from Vonage’s Wi-Fi phone."

Azimuth says its W-Series is the industry’s first standardized test platform for automated system level testing of IEEE 802.11 wireless access points, clients and other devices. The system configures an entire Wi-Fi network in a bench top chassis that provides complete Radio Frequency (RF) isolation and control. This enables evaluation of wireless LAN equipment under varying mobility conditions and traffic patterns, as well as precise analysis of the results. Azimuth’s patented system approach offers an ideal environment to perform design validation and system performance testing in addition to certification and conformance testing to the latest industry standards.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Not all of you are up to mischief at 1:46 a.m., but Vonage Voip Forum Member exitwound felt "wounded" when he found that his Linksys RT31P2 router was up to no good at that exact minute. Seeking a way to "exit" the problem, exitwound started a thread and named it RT31P2 Resets every Morning at 1.46am.

"Each and every morning, the Rt31p2 acts as if it's resetting," exitwound writes. "The power light flashed rapidly, each of the 3 ports going through a detection phase, the phones go off, then connectivity returns. 1.46AM. Sometimes, the router will not come back to being operational, but lock up with all lights lit but no internet or phone being available.

Forum Member Maaz responds with some helpful advice. ”I had that problem, though mine was intermittent," he writes. "My guess is that maybe at 1:46 am, your RTP31P2 is trying to renew its IP address from your ISP but something is causing it to reset in the process."

He says his solution was "to get my RTP31P2 exchanged for an RTP300. It's only ever reset on its own if there was a firmware update."

On a new Vonage Voip Forum thread called Two NIC's in my computer, no Dial Tone, AudioIM writes:

"I went out and bought a Linksys PAP2 and registered the new MAC with Vonage. I can hook it directly to my Motorola Cable modem via a crossover cable and it my Vonage works GREAT! However, when I try to network it through my computer, it's a NO GO!"

Audio IM adds that he has a "motherboard with a built in NIC card (Nvidia Board), I have PCI NIC card in my computer hooked to my Cable modem, I have my Vonage adapter hooked to the onboard Nvidia NIC card through a Crossover cable. How can I get my adapter online with this setup? I've tried changing IP addresses, etc... but nothing works. I've tried opening ports, port forwarding, etc... maybe I'm not doing something right, can anyone help????"

Djino answers: "You need to setup Internet Connection Sharing. Assuming you are using Windows XP, Go into Network Connections. Right click on the Local area connection (for the NIC card connected to the cable modem) Properties -> Advance tab. and I believe here you can enable internet connection sharing. says.enable this connection to be shared," he writes.

"This should work," he adds noting that he's tried this and it works.

"But the thing is with this setup, your Vonage wont work if your computer is turned off," djino points out. "So if you don't like that idea... I'd go back to going Modem -> Vonage Adaptor -> Your PC.

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!!
