 Vonage Strikes VoIP E911 Deal With Verizon

Vonage In Print News

Vonage, The No. 1 Internet-Based Phone Company Plans To Announce Today That It Has A Deal With Verizon To Provide Enhanced 911 Service To Vonage Customers Throughout Verizon's Territory

May 4, 2005

By Staff

Vonage, the No. 1 Internet-based phone company plans to announce today that it has a deal with Verizon to provide Enhanced 911 service to Vonage customers throughout Verizon's territory. Verizon becomes the first regional bell to let Vonage access its databases and call-routing systems to offer E-911, which provides emergency dispatchers with a callers number and location.

 Vonage Contracts With Verizon For VoIP E9-1-1 Service

Vonage Press Releases

Two Communications Leaders Unite to Revolutionize E9-1-1 with the First Territory-Wide Deployment of NENA’s Proposed I2 Technical Standard

Edison, NJ, May 4, 2005 – Vonage Holdings Corp, the leading provider of broadband phone service, today announced an agreement with Verizon to access elements of the wireless and wireline Enhanced 9-1-1 network to offer its customers E9-1-1 service. As a result of a successful collaboration between the two companies, Vonage will able to deliver both caller’s location and call back number to emergency services personnel for 911 calls placed throughout Verizon’s territory. Verizon is the first ILEC to work closely with any nomadic VoIP service to ensure emergency calling keeps pace with VoIP technology.

“Verizon is a responsible steward of the E9-1-1 public trust, through their foresight Vonage is able to implement an E9-1-1 solution that will serve all customers,” said Jeffrey A. Citron, Vonage’s CEO. “Unlike other ILECs, Verizon has not recommended Vonage use a CLEC for call delivery, as they recognize the significant limitations of this solution, as it does not accommodate for mobile customers or VoIP users on non-local phone numbers. It is important that all Vonage customers can use this solution, those with native phone numbers and those who chose phone numbers from other areas.”

 The Economics Of VoIP 911 Emergency Services

Vonage In Print News

The Economics Of Emergency Services

May 2, 2005

By Johna Till Johnson

My recent column on the necessity of universal 911 services definitely hit a hot button. Many thanks to those who wrote to share their views.

A few clarifications: First, I provided some inaccurate information regarding Vonage's 911 capabilities. Per Vonage's current Web site, users don't have to pay extra for 911: Even the $14.99 basic rate includes 911 capabilities, though in all cases users must activate their 911 features themselves (it's not built-in). My apologies for the error.

Second, it's clear from the responses that there's a lot of FUD around the issue of 911 and E911 services. Let's cut to the chase: The real issue, as I noted in the previous column, is that enabling VoIP with E911 capabilities costs money - and nobody's willing to belly up to the bar to pay. Or more precisely, nobody's yet taken a hard look at how funding models for public services should evolve in a world where voice (not just VoIP) is virtually free.

 Vonage Reshaping Telcom Billing Systems

Vonage In Print News

A Tale Of Two IPT Service Providers

April 29, 2005

By Barbara Lancaster

IP Telephony is rapidly reshaping telecommunications world wide. "Traditional" Billing systems, like "traditional" voice time division switches, are reaching their expiration, even for "traditional" Service Providers. For new IP-based Service Providers, "traditional" Billers just don't fit the business model. Vonage and Pipemedia are pioneers in the IP Telephony business; each achieving steady growth over a period of years. Vonage is primarily focused on the consumer and small business market, while Pipemedia also offers a hosted IP PBX offering for larger business customers, as well as re-selling DSL directly to its customers. By attending OSS exhibitions, talking with a variety of vendors, and in Vonage's case, bringing the "closest fit" vendor in for a pilot evaluation, both ended up defining, building, and operating their own customer care and Billing solutions.

Looking back

In a circuit switched network, it was reasonable to justify the price of 'long distance' on the basis that calls that travel a long way cost Service Providers more to carry than calls that go across the street. We were all conditioned to agree that calls placed during peak hours (i.e. normal business hours) were of more value and therefore priced higher than calls made on weekends, evenings or cheapest of all, in the middle of the night.

The disruptive force of IP

IP Telephony makes nonsense of the time-and-distance charging model - it is possible to transport the IP telephone service from New York to Sydney by simply plugging an IP Phone, or an Analog Terminal Adapter into a Broadband Access connection point in Australia to enjoy exactly the same service as if you were still in Manhattan.

The new low-cost network model has of course created the influx of new pure IP players into the Service Provider market. IP Telephony Service Providers (IPT SP) can buy wholesale capacity at a fraction of the build costs and enjoy the benefits of being buyers in a buyers market (although there are some signs that this imbalance is now beginning to even out). They can gain access to customers directly through tried and tested DSL technology, which has a low "barrier to entry" cost. But they still need systems to charge and bill their customer services. While each IPT SP we recently interviewed indicated that they first looked at the traditional "tools of the trade" used by traditional telcos, each quickly found that these tools were not what they had in mind.

As Louis Holder, EVP Development at Vonage observed: "There were some great packages that did some of everything, but because they were so broad, they became too complex and too expensive. They couldn't "dumb down" their systems to meet our needs and our price point."

 Mexico Phone Operator Telmex Blocking VoIP Traffic And Websites

Vonage In Print News

Mexico Telephone Operator Under VoIP Fire

April 25, 2005

By Ben Charny

Broadband customers of Mexico's dominant telephone operator say the quality of their voice over Internet Protocol calls has tanked, with some alleging that Telmex is engaging in unfair business practices to block VoIP competition.

VoIP, freely available software that lets broadband connections become inexpensive home phone lines, is seen as a major threat to entrenched phone operators such as Telmex because VoIP users no longer need a local phone service; they can use their VoIP service with any broadband connection anywhere in the world.

International operators and habitues of the less urbane world of Web forums are venting about the government-owned operator's alleged practices, which they say include blocking Web sites that VoIP operators use to register new customers and perform a bulk of their customer service.
"We're definitely interested in this situation," said a White House trade official, who asked not to be named. "Telmex has had a long pattern of engaging in anti-competitive behavior."

In a March report, the White House's Office of the U.S. Trade Representative wrote: "Uncertainty regarding the treatment of voice over Internet Protocol services in Mexico is cause for concern. Irrespective of the merits of Telmex's ambitions, restrictions on the ability of any entity, foreign or domestic, to supply VoIP appears inappropriate."

Telmex did not respond to a phone call and an e-mail seeking comment on the situation.

Caller complaints escalate

The Telmex VoIP situation has grown since mid-March, when the company's broadband customers say the quality of their third-party voice over Internet Protocol calls began eroding to what are now unbearable levels, according to e-mail interviews with VoIP customers who routinely call in and out of Mexico.

 Vonage And SBC Working Out Details For VoIP 911 Help

Vonage, SBC In Talks Over 911 Help

April 25, 2005

By Ben Charny

SBC Communications said steps are being taken to open its 911 emergency services to competitor Vonage, a potentially important breakthrough for Internet phone providers.

SBC on Monday said it recently offered to negotiate a commercial agreement to give Vonage a direct connection to its 911 infrastructure. The U.S. phone giant also agreed to assess the technology blueprints for doing so, according to an SBC representative. The representative did not disclose additional details about the deal.

The two sides have been at odds over the issue. SBC initially planned to trial the Vonage 911 system nine months ago, but backed out without explanation. Then, last month, it deflected Vonage's formal request to lease access to the required gear. However, on April 18, SBC Executive Vice President Christopher T. Rice discussed plans to begin negotiations in a letter to Vonage Chief Executive Jeffrey Citron.

The progress is a positive sign that the two companies are close to finally addressing the hot-button issue of giving voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) operators access to the street address databases and telephone network serving all 3,200 emergency dispatch centers in the United States. The vital infrastructure is owned and operated to a large degree by the nation's top four local phone operators: SBC, Verizon Communications, BellSouth and Qwest Communications International, collectively known as the Bells.

Feature Choice Growing For Online Phone Plans; Vonage Vs. Cable Firms; Third-Party Companies Offer More Options , But You'll Need Broadband

April 25, 2005

By Mike Angell

Talk about a competitive market. Some 200 companies now offer Internet phone services.

The companies deliver the calls via broadband lines using VoIP, or voice over Internet protocol. By breaking voice into data packets, VoIP offers low-cost long-distance calling and features not available with regular phone service.

About 1 million people are using VoIP service. And thousands are signing up each month.

As the technology matures, new users face a quandary: Which provider should they use?

Consumers have two basic choices for getting VoIP service.

One option is a third-party company, such as Vonage.

It delivers phone calls over a broadband connection provided by another firm.
