Hybrid VoIP Phones Will Take To The Road

February 4, 2005

By Tim Greene

Take A Wi-Fi Phone With You, And Save Money At Hotspots.

So far, wireless VoIP is finding a niche for situations where staff remain within a building. In particular, hospitals, where cellphones are not allowed, have been the site of early adopters (read our recent case studies, Wireless VoIP features win over IT staff and Nurses get the voice-on-Wi-Fi treatment

For others, VoIP on Wi-Fi is becoming more popular as it overcomes the technical barriers (What barriers? Read our summary Voice on Wi-Fi? Just say NoM).

Mobile users want voice on Wi-Fi

While roaming within a building might be good enough for staff inside a hospital, salespeople that roam the country also can benefit from wireless VoIP phones and save customers money, says Keith Waryas, an analyst with IDC.

Using VoIP wireless phones or even VoIP softphone software on a wireless PC can turn public hot spots into havens where users can avoid dipping into cellular minutes that may cost a lot of money, according to Waryas.

 Vonage CTO Writes An Open Letter To The Vendor Community

Vonage In Print News

An Open Letter To The Vendor Community

February 1, 2005

By Louis Mamakos

Dear vendors,

Here we are, a few years into the 21st century, and we're still using an old, obsolete network protocol to control and operate our network devices. Why is this? You might say it's about being backward compatible, but I attribute it to the most powerful fundamental force in the universe: inertia.

Imagine that you're a network architect at a large enterprise or service provider-in my case, I'm the CTO of Vonage-and you have to operate and interact with a wide variety of network elements. If your network consists of nearly 400,000 pieces of networking gear like mine, configuring and revving just 1 percent of those elements through the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) can take a long time. Managing this process takes effort and patience, as anyone with a big network knows.

The problem with TFTP is that it performs poorly. TFTP was built for small footprint, not high performance. It uses the simple "send a packet, wait for an acknowledgement, then send the next packet" approach to transport protocols. Each of those packets can only contain 512 bytes. The combination of short packets and relatively long time required to receive an acknowledgement can cripple TFTP performance, especially when the devices being managed are on the other side of the globe. By contrast, file transfers over TCP-based protocols take advantage of TCP's ability to have more in-flight data to improve performance.

 Vonage To Sell Wi-Fi Phones

Vonage In Print News

Phones To Use Wi-Fi Instead Of Cellular Systems, Or Both

February 3, 2005

By Anne Eisenberg

Today people take laptops to wireless hot spots in coffee bars and airports to check their e-mail messages and to explore the Internet. Soon they may pack a new type of telephone and take it along, too, to make inexpensive calls using those wireless connections.

The phones are called voice over Internet protocol over Wi-Fi (or, simply, voice over Wi-Fi) handsets. Like conventional voice over Internet protocol, or VoIP, services, they digitize the voice and send it as data packets over the Internet. But they do it wirelessly, over an 802.11, or Wi-Fi, network.

And also like conventional VoIP, the technology may become popular with people who want to economize on their long-distance bills by using Wi-Fi connections when possible. "If you make a large number of calls, it could save money," said Philip Solis, a senior analyst at ABI Research in Oyster Bay, N.Y., and author of a report on prospects for the technology.

Wi-Fi handsets will soon be common on the consumer market, Mr. Solis said. "Probably we will see dual-use handsets that are cellphones as well as voice over Wi-Fi."

Vonage, a company that offers VoIP service, will soon sell portable Wi-Fi handsets that people can use at public access points or on wireless networks in their homes and offices as an alternative to cordless phones. Vonage, which is based in Edison, N.J., expects to offer the handsets by midyear, its chief executive, Jeffrey Citron, said.

 Consumers Are Cool To VoIP

Consumers Are Cool To VoIP: Survey

February 2, 2005

By Preston Gralla

Forrester survey finds that only 13% are interested or very interested in using the technology.

Despite a significant industry push, consumers are cool to VoIP, with only 13% interested or very interested in using the technology, according to a new survey by Forrester. Only 43% have even heard of the technology, and only three percent of consumers are using it, the survey of 1,132 online households concluded.

The Forrester report, "Who Wants To Buy VoIP?" also found that consumers will have to see significant savings before considering using VoIP over their existing phone service. It concluded, "The needle on interest doesn't move until consumers can save at least $15 on their combined local and long-distance spending. At this point, the consumers surveyed who are 'very willing' and 'extremely willing' to purchase VoIP more than doubles to 38%. At a savings of $25, the percentage skyrockets to 52%."

Consumers would be most willing to consider VoIP services from their local phone companies, with 38% of respondents pointing to that as their top choice. In second place was a wireless carrier, with nearly a third of respondents. Specialty VoIP carriers such as Vonage were cited by only 19% of respondents.

 Vonage Blurs Area Code Boundaries

Vonage In Print News

Area Codes Blur Boundaries ("The Customer")

January 31, 2005

By Elisa Batista

Thanks to cellular and internet phones, anyone can make a call from anywhere -- and use any area code in the country.

But the added mobility doesn't always bode well for businesses trying to operate in a messy world of multiple personal phones, calling numbers and area codes that differ from a person's home address.

Some companies may ask what's the point of even having an area code? If anything, the invention of the mobile has been a headache for Domino's Pizza (DPZ).

The fast-food delivery chain has an internal group of people looking for a technical solution for accepting cell-phone orders. Right now, most Domino's restaurants accept orders only from land-line telephones tied to a local address, to ensure that drivers make deliveries to legitimate homes.

"One of our best customer-service and driver-safety tools is caller ID," said Domino's Pizza spokeswoman Holly Ryan. "Cell phones have added the extra step of verifying and tying a legitimate address to a cell-phone number. It's not an insurmountable challenge, but it has added the extra step of verification."

 Internet Telephony Takes The Spotlight

PluggedIn: Internet Telephony Takes The Spotlight

January 28, 2005

By Justin Hyde

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - One technology promises to harness the power of the Internet for voice communications. Its competitor has been around for a century, and has an industry shorthand that needs two adjectives -- "plain old telephone service" -- to describe just how boring it is.

The battle between the two is expected to heat up in 2005, as we move further into the much-hyped "Year of the Internet Phone." But even if the most optimistic predictions come to pass, industry analysts say, plain-old telephone lines will still have a tight grip on much of the market. The Internet-based business has a number of hurdles to clear before it becomes a mainstream technology.

Still, even if it doesn't take over the phone market, Internet telephony, or VOIP (voice-over-Internet protocol), seems poised to make inroads in the United States, thanks to growing numbers of high-speed Internet connections and companies pushing Internet phone services.

Net-Based Phones Lure More Users

January 27, 2005

By Michelle Kessler

When Kevin Cocco's friends in Montreal want to chat, they dial a local Quebec phone number — but it rings 2,300 miles away in his Utah home.

Cocco's Salt Lake City friends dial a different number, local to them. It, too, rings in his home. All his calls also simultaneously ring on Cocco's cell phone, letting him stay connected while snowboarding the Utah slopes. Think of it as a kind of high-tech call-forwarding that lets the phone ring at home, too.

The phone system costs Cocco, 34, about $20 a month because he uses a fast-growing technology called Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP.

Chianca: Things Were Better Before The Internet Showed Up

January 27, 2005

By Peter Chianca

Internet phone? Oh, what a tangled Web

I've found myself wondering lately: What has been preventing me from calling in sick and going to Aruba? Other than that I can't afford the airfare, I'm currently too pasty to appear publicly in a bathing suit and my wife would probably have trouble explaining to the kids why, instead of at dinner, Daddy is in Aruba.

I've decided the real reason is that it would be morally wrong to call in sick if I'm not actually sick. Ha ha! Sometimes I crack myself up. No, seriously, it's because of Caller ID; I can't exactly call my boss and have "Aruba Hilton" show up on her LCD screen. (I have it on good authority that this is why Caller ID was first invented - to outsmart all those AT&T employees going to Aruba instead of climbing telephone poles.)

But now, it appears I have another option. This new Vonage broadband phone company apparently provides you with a little box in which your phone number "lives" - just plug the box into an Internet connection wherever you are (Aruba, Venice, Newark) and it appears as if you're calling from your house. If it just included a little voice box that made it sound like I was talking through several layers of phlegm, I'd have this calling-in-sick thing down.

 Voice Over Internet Protocol Is Not Just For Internal Phone Calls.

DIY Communication: Voice Over Internet Protocol Is Not Just For Internal Phone Calls. Simon Bisson Explains How It Can Help Connect A Business To Branch Offices And Other Sites, While Saving Money

January 27, 2005

By Staff

IT departments have been centralising services and applications, using new data centres to increase efficiencies and save money. Email systems have become central hubs, for example, rather than networks of local servers. Now the same is about to happen to telephony using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). In the week US VoIP giant Vonage finally brings its service to the UK, it's a good time to see if VoIP is right for you.

VoIP phones have been around since the 1990s, and organisations have used them to switch to one voice and data network, instead of having separate networks for phones and computers. This has led to massive deployments of IP handsets - Cisco has shipped more than 4m IP phones, with Lloyds TSB rolling out more than 70,000 in its network.
