Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - April 6, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

April 6, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll learn who will be manufacturing a new generation of chips for Vonage equipment, find out which Vonage co-sponsored race car will be running this weekend, and also hear about a new Vonage-compatible, hands free speakerphone.  We'll also go over an Vonage Voip Forum thread about untangling the New York City area code mess to get the most suitable area code for Vonage service, and using Vonage in a hotel. And finally, we'll tell you about how you can "Digg" what you read on the Vonage Forum.

In The News

Broadcom To Make Chips For Vonage

Vonage and chip-maker Broadcom say the two companies have signed an agreement for Broadcom chips to be included in future  Voip phones and adapters compatible with Vonage's service. 

"Recognizing the need for small businesses and consumers to have a myriad of options when selecting devices to place upon their networks, Vonage is excited to partner with Broadcom to continue to offer communications choices," said Daniel Smires, senior vice president of Vonage Network, in a statement. "Broadcom's strong architecture and technological expertise will open new paths to add new devices to our product portfolio, furthering the choice for subscribers signing up for our service plans."

Vonage Co-Sponsored Race Car Set To Run In Toyota Grand Prix

The deal isn't exclusive to Broadcom, however. Vonage has an existing deal with competing chip-maker Texas Instruments, and a Vonage representative told eWeek magazine today that relationship will stay in place.

On Saturday, the 26-car Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Series races will be held in that California beach city. One of the cards will be the Pacific Coast Motorsports #89 Playboy/Vonage/Palms Pontiac Riley, driven by Ryan Dalziel and team-mate Alex Figge. The qualifying round will be tomorrow.

"I'm really looking forward to racing at Long Beach," Dalziel says. It's without a doubt my favorite track on this year's schedule and I believe it should suit our car. Alex and I have both raced at Long Beach on several occasions in open-wheel and our engineers share that experience too! I think our respective backgrounds should serve us well heading into qualifying on Friday."

Vonage-Compatible Speakerphone Released

ClearOne has released the Chat 50 personal speakerphone that works with Internet telephony services such as  Vonage. Intended for conferencing, the Chat 50 connects to a variety of devices, offers full-duplex capability, and audio playback for music, gaming and other sound files. Chat 50 works with VoIP softphones such as those from  CounterPath, which makes the interface for Vonage SoftPhone. Chat 50 also can replace headphones and headsets for hands-free conferencing.


On The Vonage Voip Forum

New Vonage Forum Member acidcrys plans to sign up for Vonage service and get a New York City virtual number. But since he has some questions about that number, he's decided to start a thread called NYC Region Zones?

"I'm signing up for a virtual number in New York area code 718. The sign up asks what region/zone I want and I'm not sure since I don't live there," acidcrys writes. "I assume it has something to do with the 3 digits that come after the area code?"

He then asks two relevant questions:

1st - Does anyone know if this really matters in long distance? Like, if someone in a different zone with the same 718 area code calls my virtual 718 number, will they be charged?

2nd - Does anyone know what the zones stand for? I've tried looking on the internet a bunch and haven't really found useful information.

"The person I want to be able to call me has a 1-718-984-**** number and I'd like for it to not cost them anything when calling me," acidcrys explains. "I live in FL and if you have the same area code, it doesn't matter what region you call to, its all free. So I'm just unsure about this."

Well, acidcrys, Vonage Forum Member barry253 is sure. Sure enough to write a response to your post.

"718, 212, 917, 646, and 347 are all local NYC area codes, and there are no extra charges when dialing. 917 is primarily cell phones, but some land lines as well in Manhattan," he explains. "You should be fine with any 718 number."

Then acidcrys follows up with a post that thanks barry253 for that info.

I like it when you Members who feel that your fellow Member(s) have helped you successfully resolve your issue take the time to write a thank you post. These Members have done this out of their own time, and a "thank you" is not only courteous, but it is the right thing to do.

Vonage Forum Member stevegogo is "on the go-go"- specifically on a business trip for which he would like to take his Vonage equipment with him. Stevegogo has some questions about if and how this can be done, questions that he's included in a thread he has kicked off and named, connecting PAP2 adapter in hotel with wireless.

"Is there a way to connect my PAP2 adapter to a hotel's wireless network while I am traveling? I have recently purchased a Linksys WTR54GS which I hope I can use in a hotel room that has high speed wire access so that I can plug my adapter in to the wired port and use my laptop wirelessly," he writes. "I really need to know if both situations are workable."

Vonage Forum Member mharvey sees stevegogo's post and writes a helpful response.

"There are probably a couple of ways that you could do this," writes mharvey. "You might be able to use the WRT54GS as an access point client to connect to the hotel wireless and then plug your laptop and PAP2 into that.

"Another alternative is to use the laptop to connect to the hotel Wireless. Then connect your PAP2 to the wired Ethernet port on your laptop," mharvey adds. "You can then use Windows XP to bridge the Wired Ethernet to the wireless. You would probably need a crossover Ethernet cable since you are using a PAP2 instead of a Vonage Router."

Then mharvey adds links to a couple of Vonage Forum threads he advises stevegogo to check out. They are Can I connect the PAP2 to a wireless Laptop? and  Wireless Access.
