The world changes quickly...
 
Microsoft Edge announced disallowing the use of plugins. If you are relying on a VoIP plugin for your service, it is time to migrate to WebRTC - and the sooner the better: http://bit.ly/1c2jr58
Microsoft Edge is dropping plugin support. If what you do involves voice and video plugin, it is time to switch towards WebRTC.

Has anyone here used +Aptus Tel FonB on a daily basis? I am particularly interested in their smartphone solution http://aptus.com/mobility-solution.html

I saw that they were a VUC guest back in 2013. I don't think they had launched their smartphone apps and webrtc calling solution back then. I wonder if they could be invited back to talk about some of their new products.

Is +Max B still around? He was the speaker, I think.

People like turnkey, self-serve IVRs. But it has to be intuitive: http://theivrvoice.com/you-are-now-free-to-move-about-the-ivr/ #ivr #iwanttotalktoarealhuman
Searching online for disaster stories about convoluted telephone systems and the customer frustrations which ensue (which has become a near-sport/ hobby of mine, since I started this blog) can be very entertaining reading in an odd, perverse way– and no other industry is more prevalently featured in these “IVR Hell” stories than the airline industry; the …

Free phones: 
We've taken on distributorship for Flying Voice in North America, and I've a number of their IP542N phones to give away - they're a fairly straightforward 4 line SIP desk phone with both Ethernet and WiFi connectivity.  A few things:
1.  One per person/organisation;
2.  We'd appreciate a quick bit of feedback as to what you like and what you don't;
3.  USA only for now, please;
4.  If I get more requests than I have phones, I'll devise a way of choosing who gets one.

If you'd like one, please drop me a quick e-mail at david.knell@telng.com- we'll aim to ship at the end of next week, so please get it to me before then.

Hi Everyone! I've got a quick question about SIP trunking. I've mostly been using IAX2 trunks for different things. They are easy to setup and seem to find their way around a firewall with no port forwarding on my part. If I wanted to SIP trunk two machines together over the internet, am I going to have to monkey with the firewall or will it work like the IAX2 trunks I've been using. Just curious. Thanks!

Here's where I stop. Never used IPKall, so can't help you there, sorry.

Guidelines are, if call can't be established it's a signalling problem (SIP, and it's a minefield), if no audio (in and/or out) it's firewall / ports or codec(s).

VoIP is a complex, multidisciplinary beast.

It demands you know everything about networks, telephony, electronics, psychoacoustics, change management and legislation, all up to date and on the tip of your fingers.

All to make two people talk between them, sitting in two adjoining cubicles 😒

Integrating and recording ISDN calls together with VOIP calls.

Has anyone got experience of installing an ISDN line card into a VOIP server such as Asterisk?  Can anyone recommend an ISDN interface card e.g. the Sangamoa ISDN BRI Voice Boards?

Also what are people's experiences of VOIP over ADSL either hosted VOIP or running their own server? I have several ADSL lines one dedicated to VOIP and I only ever use one channel of VOIP at a time but I still suffer massive quality problems with not being able to hear the remote party. Thanks.

Hi We monitor sip and Iax2 peer status as well as sip/iax2 registration status for all our customer servers, This lets us keep an eye on specific extensions and trunks. We also monitor number of active channels on servers as well. 
Always nice to know theres a problem before the customer does ;-)

WebRTC  - 
 
 
Transmitting voice over Internet has been around for several years, so the principles behind it are not new. In the last 15 years or so there has also been a huge standardization effort to ensure VoIP providers could integrate to each other and interoperate with other telephony systems like PSTN (and GSM). In the meantime, the Open Source approach has spread all over the technology spectrum and now almost all the components involved in a VoIP sys...

It's me again, the one with nothing but questions :O) This morning I was testing out my network. The picture is attached. I call it "Morning Formation." Anyway, the FreePBX box running all this is virtualized on a laptop that is not shown. Everything is mostly connected to a 24 port switch and an 8 port switch hanging off of that. When I first turned the system on, call setup was agonizingly slow. I could dial two phones in network and I was waiting from 10 to 20 seconds. I restarted the PBX, changed ports, gave the PBX more memory, gave the PBX another CPU but nothing worked. I captured the traffic at on of the instruments and it wasn't getting timely responses from the PBX. I was in the middle of patching my Raspberry Pi PBX into the system just to see if it was the laptop, when all the sudden everything started working like a well oiled machine. 30 to 45 minutes after turning everything on, all symptoms were cleared up. Call setup was instantaneous. The only thing I suspect is that the 24-port switch I hooked all this to finally learned were everything was supposed to go.

My question: In the vast experience most of you have, does it really take a 24-port gigabit switch 30 to 45 minutes to learn the network or am I missing something? As always, thanks for all your help!

Pretty common stuff.
That's why we use a random number in the re-registration delay parameters - where available - so the endpoints don't retry all at the same time over and over again, until the backoff timer kicks in.
For your Grandstreams is P138 for account 1, P471 for account 2, etc.
