Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - November 2, 2005

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

November 2, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. In today's edition, we'll learn about an IP-enabled PBX solution that has just successfully completed an interoperability test with Vonage. We'll read a 911 acknowledgement reminder Vonage sent out to many of its customers this morning. We'll check out the latest about how many people saw Vonage ads in the most recent week, and also read an article that attests to Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron's "power." We'll check out a Vonage Voip Forum thread in which one Member writes how he got his Linksys RTP300 router to work, and also read the latest review of Vonage as submitted by a Vonage Forum Member. And hey, the next review could be yours.

So let's get started...

Vonage In The Headlines

IP-PBX Developer Announces Completion of Vonage Testing

Brekeke Software Inc. is a company that makes IP-enabled PBX (call routing and processing) software.

Yesterday they announced the completion of compatibility testing of their OnDO PBX with Vonage.

OnDO is a downloadable IP-PBX application which enables users to quickly and easily create a PBX system that connects to any SIP compliant phone. OnDO says this combination of their technology with Vonage will create a powerful tool that for those wishing to enhance their phone systems with voicemail, call forwarding, call conferencing, and more -- while saving money. 

"This is the interoperability testing our customers have been waiting for. We are excited to complete this compatibility testing with Vonage and allow our customers the flexibility to use our products with Vonage," OnDO CEO Shin Yamade said.  

Vonage Sends Out 911 Acknowledgement Reminder

This morning, some friends who are Vonage users received this email from Vonage:

Dear Valued Vonage Customer,
All Voip providers are required by the FCC to provide 911 Dialing service to all customers. In addition to acknowledging our 911 Dialing notice, you must also provide us with the location information (street address) where you will be using your Vonage service.

You can provide us your street address by simply logging in to your web account, selecting the Features link on your dashboard, and filling out a short form with your street address in the 911 Dialing feature box. Once we have this information, your 911 Dialing will be available within a couple of hours.

Please note, if you have multiple phone lines you MUST provide us with the street address for each line separately in order to activate 911 Dialing. 911 calls are routed based on the street address you have registered with us, so if you move your device you must re-register your new street address. Also, if you add a line to your account you will need to activate 911 Dialing by providing us with your street address for that line as well. Remember, you can easily update your street address at any time through your web account.

At Vonage your safety is important to us, and we look forward to providing you with reliable broadband phone service.

Vonage Advertising Makes an "Impression" Nearly Three Billion Of Them

Each week, the Nielsen/NetRatings research service ranks what it believes to be the top Internet advertisers in terms of "impressions." It does this by recording the number of times that banner ads appear on specific Web sites. Then Nielsen combines this info with its own research on how many people visit these Web sites during the measured week.

If you think that Vonage is one of the major advertisers on Web sites, you are right. The Nielsen/NetRatings numbers are out for the week ending October 23, and they show that in terms of all companies -both technology and non-technology - that advertise on the Web, ranked first in terms of what ad people call "impressions" - the number of time a specific person sees a specific ad. If, for example, you saw Vonage banner ads 47 times in September, that would be 47 more "impressions" for Vonage.

OK, now for the numbers. As far as total impressions, Vonage ranked first with 2,948,170,000, or almost 3 billion. That was way ahead of second-place finisher DeVry., Inc., the educational institution. If you think the list is biased toward tech companies because it measures Internet advertising, you would be wrong. Besides Vonage, the only two tech companies in the top ten of ad impressions for the week of October 23 were Verizon and Dell.

Vonage CEO Named "One Of Most Powerful Guys Under 35"

Well, that would be in terms of being powerful in business, in entertainment, and in society. Or, as Details magazine (mostly read by guys under 35) those who have "accumulated power," and use their influence shrewdly.  

Here's the Details of what Details magazine had to say about Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron, who they ranked #19:

" Telecom Pioneers Jeffrey Citron // CEO, Vonage // Age: 35 Jeffrey Citron’s Vonage is helping folks use computers just as they would a phone – with little more than an adaptor and a broadband connection."

Many of those "folks" Details magazine writes about are also Members of our Vonage Forum. Speaking of ...

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Here on the Vonage Forum, we get lots of posts and threads about the RTP300. That's the Linksys router many of you use to enable your Vonage connection.

The latest such thread has been started by Vonage Forum Member curly, who has given his thread the name, RTP300 headache on extended network solved (so far).

"I have a small network with diverse equipment which shares out a Covad DSL 3Mbp/768kbp to tenants in my building. One user already had Vonage w/ a Motorola adapter and after a few small bad starts a couple years ago it has been working famously," curly writes. "I've been tearing my hair out trying to configure another user's RTP300 for their new Vonage service. The unit would not keep a connection on the phone port for longer than say a few days." 

But then, curly got busy tweak the settings as in disabling DHCP. But a problem, as he describes it, would be that the connection would be lost on the LAN side especially after a power cycle. 

"The only thing that would bring it back was a hard reset (5 secs on the button) and even then that didn't always work. Tech told me to plug it straight into the main router (zYxel 643 DSL) since it was going through a couple dumb switches en route," curly adds. "That worked the first time. Then I took it back upstairs and it worked... for a few days again." 

So what did curly do? Let's read along with what he says happened next.

"Luckily the user was out of town so I've had some time to mess around with it. After multiple tries at any settings other than the default I gave up after the second day," he writes.

Well that doesn't sound too encouraging. But he wasn't ready to give up yet. 

"Right before hitting the hay the idea occurred to me to plug the gateway (zYxel643) connection into the LAN (yellow) side and patch the WAN (blue) side straight over to the LAN (yellow) side and let the main router do what it has done so well all these years," he tells us. "Well, what an incredible relief when the 'phone 1' light came straight on within a micro-second and has been steady on (except for the messages blinks) ever since (about 6 or 7 hours now) no matter how many settings I change." 

He then said he disabled NAT and DHCP and every other router type function he could think of. 

So how did he do?

"HOORAAY!," curly writes in all-caps. "I'm really impressed and brand loyal with linksys stuff, especially the WRT54g, but this RTP300 had me in doubt for a while." He does say he would really like to see a setting in this router config that easily disables the router function such as in the config for the WRT54g as well be able to see some of the other settings that are described in the RTP300 "...More" but aren't actually available in firm-1.00.52. 

But, "for now everything seems ok and I hope I don't have to post back with new problems," curly writes.

Last night I went back and read through some Vonage Reviews some of our Members have written. The newest one is from Keith Price, who lives very close to the West Virginia-Maryland state line. By the way, that's real pretty country.

"I love the service!!! No problems at all, even though my area code is in Maryland," he writes. "All calls go through quite well with no noticeable loss at all! 

As far as "price" is concerned, Keith Price says he's "gone from paying $70-75 a month to paying only $25! I love Vonage and suggest it for all!," he writes. "I believe with service this good, the 'Baby Bells' are in a lot of trouble." 

Keith says the only times he's seen complaints " seems to be minor issues about the technology of the (Vonage) website. "But," he adds, "I personally could care less about navigating the website if my phone service is equally as good as my 'major' carrier." 

Keith ends his review by hoping that everyone is as happy as he is with the Vonage service.

"I can only hope that everyone is as happy and Vonage continues to grow and expand to offer this great service to all!"
