Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - March 30, 2006


Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

March 30, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

As many of you readers already know, yesterday we hit the 25,000 Member mark of registered Vonage Forum Members since we started the Vonage Forum three years ago this month. One of those Members, NateHoy, won the contest we have been running to guess the exact time that we would reach 25,000. Yet in all the excitement of yesterday, I did not name the Member whose coming on board with all of us enabled us to exactly hit the 25,000 Members threshold.

The new Vonage Forum Member who got us exactly to 25,000 is JackB. Turns out that JackB has already made his first post. It's a good one. We'll mention it in our Vonage VoIP section below.

But for now, let us get back to business. In the news, we'll learn more about a new adaptor with router Motorola is introducing for Vonage service. We'll also cover the latest in the net neutrality debate, along with a brewing controversy abut whether or not the Central American nation of Belize is blocking Vonage service. We'll look at a Vonage Voip Forums thread about that very issue, as well as about shipping Vonage equipment to another part of the world. 



In The News

Vonage, Motorola Team Up On A New Adaptor with Router

Vonage has announced they will be carrying the Motorola VT2442 Internet Phone Adaptor with Router, a four port router and two line Internet telephone adaptor configured with Vonage's service. The device is now available at Vonage Direct,  for $19.99 after a $60 instant rebate.

An all-in-one solution, the versatile Motorola VT2442 greatly simplifies the process of adding Internet telephone service into a home network. The VT2442 powers up to two lines of telephone service and supports popular features such as call waiting, call forwarding and caller ID. The VT2442 also includes a fully-featured home network router, offering four Ethernet ports for connecting computers or gaming consoles, and an advanced firewall for Internet security. The product incorporates Texas Instruments' TNETV1060 Voip gateway chipset, further enhancing the quality and feature offerings of Vonage's Internet telephony service for subscribers.

Vonage says this product offers more features than the previously introduced Motorola VT1005, an award-winning Internet Phone adapter also offered by Vonage.

Vonage Representative To Testify on Net Neutrality Today

The current controversy about net neutrality is unnecessary, a leading U.S. Congressman says.

Net neutrality, also known as network neutrality, is the idea that companies that own the broadband pipes should not be able to configure their networks in a way that plays favorites--allowing them, for example, to transmit their own services at faster speeds, or to charge rivals such as Vonage a fee for similar fast delivery.

Texas Congressman Joe Barton, chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives' Energy and Commerce Committee, defended his decision to include limited obligations related to Net neutrality for broadband providers in the latest version of a much-anticipated bill released Monday.

That counters with a bill introduced last month by Senator Ron Wyden to limit the practice.

The House committee plans to hold a hearing on the bill today. The hearing will include statements from a Vonage representative beginning at 10 a.m. today and probably lasting for the rest of the day. 

Barton suggested that that enforcing suspected Net neutrality violations on a case-by-case basis is the best way to go until a clearer picture emerges about how bad the problem is- if there is a problem to begin with.

"The market is going to make it a moot issue," he said. "I don't think we'll be gnashing our teeth over Net neutrality two to three years from now."

Belize Accused Of Blocking Vonage Calls

Belize Telecommunications (BTL) has allegedly been limiting or blocking the use of Voip services such as Vonage. Technicians quoted by local press claim that BTL has installed hardware and software systems to disrupt these VoIP services. 

The issue has already been coming up on the Vonage Voip Forum, where we have an active thread on the subject. So let us go there now (the Forum, not Belize, as much as I love that part of the world), and see what you are saying about this issue, as well as others.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Speaking of the Belize controversy, there's now almost 20 posts up about the issue on our thread called Belize (BTL) Blocking Vonage & Others? 

I was looking at the thread this morning and have picked out two of the posts that might be the most helpful in terms of diagnosing the problem.

"Have been having the same problem with making calls via Vonage from Belize," writes new Vonage Forum Member shabba in a very informed first post.  "BTL has applied to (the Public Utilities Commission) to block Voip & IM and also to make VSAT illegal (again). As they have in the past the strategy appears to be to go ahead with their plans and simultaneously ask PUC for permission. Other citizens/residents will remember tariff rate hikes." 

Then shabba adds there is a PUC public forum at 9 a.m. in Fort George, Belize April 26 at the Caracol room to discuss these issues.

"On their methodology, I assumed at first that simple filtering of ports in BTL routers was the cause. Experimentation by others would appear to suggest that something a little more intelligent is happening," shabba writes. "Possibly stateful inspection and blocking by content or TOS (type of service bit). If this is so then it is unlikely that a work around can be found."

Then yesterday, Vonage Forum Member KnckrBckr put up this amazingly thorough post with many lines of code that he believes proves that BTL is, in fact, interfering with Vonage packets. There's too much code to put in the Digest, but it is such important research that he has done that I highly recommend you read it. Here's the link to his post, which he calls Update-Troubleshooting.

Toward the top of today's Digest, I mentioned that JackB is our 25,000th Member of the Vonage Forum. Not only because he has joined, but has already started a thread here, I thought it might be a good idea to further welcome JackB by spotlighting what's on his mind.

JackB has named his first Vonage Forum thread Shipping a Vonage phone to India. 

"Has anyone shipped a phone or router to India via FedEx or DHL? How should the package be labeled to expedite it through customs?," he asks. "Did your packages get thru customs easily?"

I guess JackB wants to know if, like in the old nursery rhyme, the Vonage got through to India "nimble" and "quick."

Well, according to fellow Vonage Forum Member peetah, apparently it can. 

"I sent the adaptor without the retail packaging in a box with other stuff to two (friends) of mine in Chennai and Mumbai," he writes. "No problems. Of course, this is no guarantee that you'll get the same results."

Another thing about this thread is real interesting. I checked, and peetah was our 212th Member, and joined back in June, 2003. Something fitting about the fact that one of our Forum Members who has been here longer than almost anyone else makes a post that gives useful info to one of our newest Members- our 25,000th one, as a matter of fact.

And for those of you who like numbers, looks like we'll have a big announcement in tomorrow's Digest!

Can You Digg It?

Digg is a free technology news website that lets you recommend articles you think others would be interested in. Digg, users submit stories for review, but rather than allow an editor to decide which stories go on the homepage, the users do.

According to Digg, "once a story is submitted by a user it is instantly posted in the digg area queue. This is a temporary holding place where stories wait to be promoted to the homepage. To help promote stories to the homepage, simply visit the digg area and digg stories you think are cool. Once a story has received enough diggs, it is instantly promoted. Should the story not receive enough diggs, or is reported, it eventually falls out of the digg area queue. Digg works because a large group of people actively promote good stories to the homepage. Since this site's content is user-driven, it is up to YOU to contribute.

If you found today's issue of the: Vonage Forum Daily Digest Interesting; then Please Digg it!

If you want to submit anything else you see on the Vonage Forum To Digg, simply go to Digg, click on "submit a story" and enter the URL of the story you would like to submit. Then fill out a title, description, and category for the story. 

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 Friday morning with our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest, including our popular In The Blogs feature!!
