Ways Your PBX Service Could Be Better

In the last 10 years, V1 VoIP resellers are seeing their small and medium size business customers continue to switch to Hosted PBX service. Like most new technology, when this service was first offered some of the kinks needed to be ironed out. If you have a customer on an older PBX service, here is our list of a few ways to make their service better.

Inadequate or Mis-Programmed Router
If there is one component in the business VoIP installation process that creates problems, it’s the router. Many older routers will not support VoIP, while others that claim to do so do a piss poor job of it. Don’t forget, when routers are installed make sure it’s by someone with knowledge about VoIP so it’s done correctly.

Inadequate Internet Connection For Bandwidth
In order to have proper PBX service you must have a data circuit that meets certain criteria. Take a peak usage time and measure latency, packet loss and jitter.

Poor QoS
Quality of Service (QoS) is the prioritization of voice over data on a given circuit. QoS throttles back the data speed to allocate the proper bandwidth to voice so that quality is not impacted. QoS can be provided by the data circuit carrier or done through a V1 VoIP gateway.

Poor SIP Telephones
The vast majority of SIP telephones are of business quality, but a substandard one will make your PBX service seem awful. Make sure your customer has the proper SIP phones to make calls. Also don’t forget the data cable to run to every location where you wish to have a phone.

Outdaated Ethernet Switches
Local area network and Ethernet switch problems are rare. However older and out of date Ethernet switches that have been daisy-chained together will need to replaced.

Key Differences Between ANI and ALI Databases

V1 VoIP explains what the key differences are between the automatic number identification ANI and the automatic location identification ALI databases and their uses in voip emergency phone callsV1 VoIP is committed to offering our resellers and wholesale agents the best emergency solutions because you never want to be without in the event of an emergency. A common question asked about emergency services is what is the difference between the ALI and ANI databases and how can they effect emergency response?

Automatic Number Identification (ANI) is the automatic display at the PSAP of the telephone number associated with the line which called 911. Each telephone number and the physical location to which it corresponds are stored in an Automatic Location Identification (ALI) database, managed by the local exchange carrier.

When you call 911 the operator is looking at a screen, sees the adddress of the caller and says “help is on the way.” In that 911 call, the PSAP uses the ANI to retrieve the caller’s physical address from the ALI database. Additionally, the ANI acts as a callback number should the PSAP lose its connection to the distressed caller. Both ANI and ALI are key capabilities of E911 service.

With traditional E911 service, ALI records are stored in regional ALI databases, and are usually administered by the local exchange carrier (LEC). When a phone’s location changes, the regional ALI database must be revised with new location information which can take up to 48 hours to update.

Due to the capabilities of IP phones, it can be difficult to ensure that the regional ALI is up-to-date. Whereas traditional telephone numbers are static, IP phones can be moved easily, forcing the user to notify a network administrator, who in turn must contact the LEC to update the phone’s location in the regional ALI database. Unfortunately, this process takes time to implement, and may be forgotten entirely by the user.

Additionally, IP phones can relocate to regions served by different ALI databases entirely. A VoIP service provider or enterprise would then need agreements with each LEC to update different regional ALI databases as phones move around the country.

Ultimately, it is difficult for regional ALI databases to stay current with nomadic VoIP users, and there is no guarantee that the VoIP caller’s accurate location information will be available in a crisis.

a Guide to What is Your SIP Address

Locating call recipients and talking with them on their different user agents is done by using a SIP address. If you are thinking that it sounds like an email address, you are kind of right! SIP addresses are often indistinguishable from email addresses. Think of a SIP address as an email address that allows you to access your real time IP communications.

A SIP address is used to find the user’s network location so that they can be reached anywhere. SIP addresses are registered to the actual end user as opposed to their different devices. So if a user has a desktop, laptop and mobile phone, the SIP address is used only for the user as well as their multiple devices. The adoption of SIP addresses will hopefully spell an end to contact information that only corresponds to a specific device or location.

SIP addresses differ greatly from phone numbers. With phone numbers, you are assigned one to your home, a different one to your work and a third to your mobile. With SIP addresses, you can have only one contact ‘number’ or address and this number follows you wherever you go and whatever device you want to be reached. So regardless of someone tries you on your desk phone or your mobile phone, you are reachable by your SIP address.

Using a registration credentials, V1 VoIP can assign as many devices as you need with your own address. Contact us now to learn more about how we do this and get started.
