Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - June 7th, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

June 7, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll catch up on Vonage's stock price, as well as a new contract Vonage has just signed with a security systems company. We'll also go over a Vonage Voip Forum thread about using the Vonage VTech phone with a specific router, as well as a question about an adapter to use with Vonage SoftPhone.

In The News

For Second Consecutive Day, Vonage Shares Rise On New York Stock Exchange

On Tuesday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $12.10 a share, down 22 cents from Monday's $12.32 a share close. That's still 12 cents higher than Friday's price, which was $11.98 a share. Total trading volume for Vonage Tuesday was 1,628,800 shares. That's the least amount of shares traded in one day since Vonage stock became available. To me, anyway that could indicate that investors aren't jumpy about the Vonage stock and like me, are looking at it as a long-term investment.  

Obviously though, Vonage stock is still a hot topic - one that interests Vonage investors, lawyers for at least a few of those investors, and from what I can tell by looking at our page views, lots of you on the Vonage Forum. That's a key reason why I have grouped all this news in the Vonage Stock Forum- which you can reach from this link.

Vonage Signs Deal With Security Systems Provider

Vonage, has selected Aladdin's eToken NG-OTP user authentication solution to provide its employees with enhanced mobile PC and file security.

Vonage has selected software digital rights management, identity management and content security solutions provider Aladdin Knowledge System' eToken NG-OTP user authentication solution to provide its employees with enhanced mobile PC and file security.

The Aladdin eToken, which is about the size of an average house key, is easy to use and highly portable, providing users with powerful authentication by requiring something they have, the tamper-proof eToken, and something they know, a password. With the adoption of Aladdin eToken, Vonage is gaining One-Time Password technology based on industry-endorsed OATH (Initiative for Open Authentication) standards.

"Aladdin eToken's support for OATH standards was pivotal in our decision to select Aladdin," said Louis Mamakos, CTO of Vonage. "Vonage looks forward to all of its employees gaining extra data security by using Aladdin's NG-OTP eToken."

"The flexibility of Aladdin eToken NG-OTP fits perfectly with Vonage's requirements for both USB and OTP authentication," said Dan Pfeifle, senior director of eToken solutions for Aladdin North America. "We see a fast-growing number of organizations seeking highly flexible, open device hardware. Aladdin is pleased to have Vonage as one of its newest eToken customers."

And speaking of customers, let's see what Vonage customers are saying on the Vonage Voip Forum.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

On a new Vonage Forum thread called Using VTech 8100 w/ Netgear Rangemax wpn 824 wireless router, new Vonage Forum Member todd9352 poses his question.

"I'm wanting to know if to know if my netgear rangemax wpn 824 wireless router would work with a VTech 8100-2 phone setup," he writes. "It looks to me reading about it thru online manuals that it would work but I'm new to Vonage and want to make sure this combination would work before I sign up."

Vonage Forum Member reebok comes on the thread with a clear answer. 

"Routers just pass information unless you specify something else for it to do," writes reebok, our most frequent poster with more than 3,000 posts. "Any router *should* work.

New Vonage Forum Member vijaykd asks an interesting question on the Vonage SoftPhone Forum section of our Vonage Forums Vonage To IP Phone To Cordless Phones.

"I have Vonage Softphone account. I am using it on my laptop and for getting calls I need to keep my software running on my laptop." he writes. "If I forget switching on my software I don't receive calls. 

"Instead I was thinking If I buy an IP phone and set the SIP configuration on the phone use it without any issues but now the problem the phone is fixed in one room," vijaykd adds. "I need use it everywhere in the house. Hence thought of connecting a cordless to the IP phone, is it possible?

Then vijaykd asks if there an adapter where RJ45 is converted to RJ 11 that would enable him to connect the cordless and use it as an Internet phone.

"If I understand your question, all you need is an unlocked VoIP adapter," writes scerruti, one of our most experienced and knowledgeable members. "Just like your primary Vonage adapter converts IP to analog phone, an unlocked adapter can do the same thing for a soft phone line."

Here's A Handy Guide To the Vonage Forum

Since we've been signing up so many new Members- (registration is quick and free) and a record number of visitors as well- I thought it would be useful once again to run our handy guide to the Vonage Forum site. 

First of all, the Vonage Forum site is exclusively owned and operated by 4Sight Media LLC and is no way endorsed, sponsored, provided, owned or otherwise controlled by Vonage. For official information on Vonage Services please proceed to the Vonage website at: Vonage the Broadband Phone Company.

Vonage Forum - This is our main page. Here is where you can see a scrolling window with the title of the latest Vonage Forum posts - and read them by clicking on them if they interest you. There's also a list of which Vonage Forum Members happen to be online at the moment. If there happens to be any Vonage service alerts, you can read about them once you sign in. And speaking of Vonage, this page also has a summary of all the features and amenities offered to Vonage customers. And on this page, there's a link that when you click it, can get you started on the way to signing up for Vonage service- with your first month free!

Vonage Reviews - Here is where you will find a  clickable list of the top ten most popular Vonage Reviews written by Vonage Forum Members. This list is determined by the number of times Vonage Forum Members and site visitors have read them. You can also find a clickable list of the ten most recently posted Vonage Reviews.

Vonage Review - This link takes you to a page where you can read some Vonage Reviews posted by Vonage Forum Members.

If you find a thread title that interests you, just click on it and your web browser will take you to the thread itself.

Vonage Canada - This Vonage Forum section offers a handy list of threads about Vonage service and equipment in Canada. Yet although this section is of primary interest to Vonage's Canada customers, many of the threads you will find here are about equipment, set-up and other topics of interest to any Vonage user. Just click on a thread and it will open.

Vonage UK - This area contains a list of threads about Vonage service and equipment in the U.K. Yet although this section is of primary interest to Vonage's U.K. customers, a good percentage of the threads listed and linked here concern equipment, set-up, equipment and some other topics of interest to the broader Vonage community.

Vonage Fax, TiVo and Alarms - We've noticed that a growing number of Vonage customers use their Vonage connections to dial and receive faxes, contact the TiVo service for regular television listing updates, and call their home security company with check-ins and - we hope this never happens- alerts. This section of the Vonage Forum has a linked list of threads and questions about using your Vonage line with these services. 

Vonage Stock Forum- This is where you can discuss news about Vonage's stock, the Vonage IPO, and all other related topics. 

Vonage Hard Wiring and Installation - Although hooking up Vonage for service is not difficult at all, new as well as experienced Vonage users sometimes have questions about the right technical setup. Other new and experienced Vonage Forum Members that are moving sometimes post threads here about hard wiring and installation in the place where they have just moved to or are about to. Once again, you will find a linked list of threads about the issues reflected in the title of this Vonage Forum area.

Vonage Local Number Portability - Vonage Forum Members often come to Vonage after realizing that Vonage service is a better deal than they have with their existing or former carrier. Even though they would like to change carriers, they want to keep the same phone number, which is understandable. In this section of the Vonage Forum, you will find a linked list of threads about Local Number Portability issues.

Vonage SoftPhone - Vonage offers a very popular SoftPhone service you can access directly from your PC's screen. Here is the section of the Vonage Forum with a linked list of threads with questions and solutions about Vonage SoftPhone.

Voip Feature Request - What features would you like Vonage to offer that are not yet available? Vonage Forum Members have started threads with their requests, and this section of the Vonage Forum is where you will find these lists. I also know for a fact that many people at Vonage read this section (as well as the whole Vonage Forum site) regularly, and are open to new service feature ideas!

Vonage TV Commercials - It's no secret that Vonage's tv commercials are popular, and quite funny. On the Vonage TV Commercials section of the Vonage Forum, we have a list of these commercials. Want to watch one? Click on the name of the tv commercial and you'll go to a page with the commercial playing. You can watch the same commercial over and over, or pause if you want to freeze-frame. And there's no special streaming media software to install!

Click on the name of the month, and you'll see a page with a complete list of all topics and threads that were kicked off that month.

Vonage the company does this by distributing press releases to the media. In this section of the Vonage Forum, we have these press releases listed, archived, and linked.

Vonage Voip Forum Digest - Each business day, the Vonage Voip Forum Digest has the latest Vonage news, the latest Vonage Forum news, and details of and links to threads that we know you will be interested in. That's because the threads we select for the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest tend to be those where a Vonage Forum Member has posted a question, and other Vonage Forum Members have answered it.

Vonage Area Codes - This page contains a link to a page where you can determine if Vonage services are offered from your area code.

One more thing I would like to add. Because I've noticed that some folks misspell Vonage, I wanted to add a couple of links here that will allow for those typos. Vonage is commonly misspelled Vonnage and Vontage.


We've Updated Our Voip Speed Test

I wanted to call your attention to our upgraded Voip Speed Test. It's been getting a lot of comments, not only here on the Vonage Forum but on DSL Reports as well. Here's the link to the thread on DSL Reports where lots of their members (and me, as well) have been posting about the test.

OK, I guess I should get to the test itself.

Instead of the simple upload/download test, this one has all the reporting that is needed to diagnose ISP issues such as Jitter and Packet Loss.

The advanced report screen will be configured in the next day or so with a "Copy to Clip Board" button so you can easily paste the results in the forums.

I would like to thank the following members for giving valuable input during the beta testing: reebok, Steve48, NateHoy, VonageTPA, Trowski and scerruti.

For those of you that are interested in the details behind the results, the following are the tests parameters:

The test is located in Washington DC.

The data.bin file for the speed test upload/download is 10Mb with 8 seconds max time out.

75,000 bytes is used to calculate the number of supported Voip lines.

Other variables:

Voip lines simulated =1
voip bytes per packet =8
voip simulation seconds =10
voip packets per second =75

If you have any questions about this test, feel free to post them in this thread.

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 Thursday morning with our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest,!!
