Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - October 11, 2007

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

October 11, 2007

By Daniel Connor

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

First, we'll catch up on two important Vonage News items. Then we'll go straight to two Vonage Forum threads, one about cabling a Voip router to use with Vonage and the other thread is about porting a number to Vonage. We'll also check in on Vonage's stock price.

In The News

Vonage Appeals Verizon Patent Decision

Vonage has announced they have  filed a motion for a review by the original three-judge panel or the full panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit sitting en banc of the September 26 decision in its patent litigation with Verizon. En banc signifies a decision by the full court of all the appeals judges in jurisdictions where there is more than one three- or four-judge panel.

On September 26, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit partially remanded a March 8 jury verdict in the U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va. that the company infringed on three Verizon patents. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit remanded the infringement verdict on the 880 patent and affirmed the verdict on one patent claim in each of the 574 and 711 patents. Further, the Court of Appeals vacated the entire award of $58 million in damages and the 5.5 percent royalty. The Court of Appeals remanded the case to the U.S. District Court and directed that the court retry those aspects of the original case.

"This move represents the next logical step for Vonage in managing this litigation and continuing to move our business forward," says Vonage Chief Legal Officer Sharon O'Leary. "We recently settled our case with Sprint, and continue to explore all legal options available to put the Verizon litigation to rest."

Vonage Licenses Voice Mail Patent from Klausner

Klausner Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has granted a patent license to Vonage or its Vonage Voicemail services, and that it has settled its lawsuit against Vonage for infringement of US Patent No. 5,572,576. Vonage joins Time Warner subsidiary AOL and others, who have taken out licenses under the same Klausner patents for their Internet Voicemail services.

"We are happy to add Vonage to our growing list of licensees. Our patented visual voice messaging technology, applicable to Voip and Internet voicemail, lets consumers view and select voice messages in the same way they view and select e-mails," said Judah Klausner, CEO of Klausner Technologies.

"We are very pleased that Vonage has chosen to settle our lawsuit and that we've received further confirmation that US Patent No. 5,572,576 is valid and enforceable," said Greg Dovel of Dovel & Luner, counsel for Klausner Technologies.

About Klausner Technologies, Inc. Klausner Technologies, founded by Judah Klausner, inventor of the PDA and electronic organizer, is owned by a group of private investors. It controls over 25 patents, worldwide, covering voice messaging services in which subscribers receive visual identification of their voice messages, and selectively retrieve individual messages via their PCs or cell phones.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Vonage Forum Member DaveyWavey begins a Vonage Forum thread with the title of, Connecting Voip router to CAT5 cable.

"I have the Linksys RTP300 Voip router," DaveyWavey writes. "The connectors are 'normal' phone connectors. How do you plug in a CAT5 cable to that? In other words, what exact connector does one use and what is the wiring for CAT5, what do you do with any unused wires?"

Pointers come from our most frequent poster, Steve48.

"This link may help: .

"The normal connector for the telephone is RJ11 with up to 4 conductors. A cat 5 cable is normally terminated with an 8 conductor RJ45. In either case, for telephone use the center 2 conductors are generally used for telephone line 1. In older style wiring with RJ11s, they'd be colored red and green. The corresponding wires in the cat 5 are blue and blue-white.

"If your cat 5 cable is currently unterminated, connect the blue and blue-white wires to the center 2 pins on an RJ11 and plug that into the Vonage phone jack. Just tape the ends of the unused wires. Of course, if you really want to do things up nice, read the sticky message at the top of this forum.

Next let us look at this Vonage Forum thread that has been named How long to port business lines?. The thread has been established by Vonage Forum Member mojo66.

"About a week ago, I received the Vonage adapters to transfer two business lines to Vonage," mojo66 writes. I connected them and I got dial tones on both lines. I could immediately make outgoing calls on the two Vonage lines. However, it's now one week later and I am still receiving incoming calls on the old lines. Is this normal??

"I have read other posts," adds mojo66, "and some say it takes a week or two for lines to be transferred."

A reply comes from fellow Vonage Forum Member einnej.

"It takes 10 business days for Vonage to transfer a number and its normal for you to receive calls because until the number transfer process is complete your phone number will continue with your old service provider," einnej helpfully explains.

Vonage Stock Report
