Hi! I work for a CLEC and ISP and am interested in getting my arms around the Long Distance application of VoIP. I’m interested in giving customers an alternative to traditional TDM long distance for less expensive calls.
Is there anyone reading this forum who has done the same thing? If so, have you used dedicated pipes between gateways or has the Internet been acceptable?
Are VoIP clearinghouses still players in this market?
I’ve read about Net2Phone and DeltaThree and others but either not getting any feedback or it doesn’t fit the application quite right.
Thanks in advance and I’m sorry about the barrage of questions!18th June 2003 at 06:59 #24637clive18Guest
what equipment does your ISP use?

Clive, We use mostly Cisco Systems. I’ve played with a Cisco AS5300 PRI/VoIP gateway, but it was only to provide VoIP over the “local loop” to cable modems. I didn’t have to use a gatekeeper in that scenario.

We are trying to put together a similar system using Cisco.
If you would like to contact me, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
It will be nice to compare notes, as we both face similar “african” challenges.

I would like to help you. Could you explain what is your real need?15th July 2003 at 04:49 #24641Victor ZuluGuest
I need to offer my customers an alternative to TDM long distance without saying, “I recommend you buy Net2Phone equipment and accounts.”
I imagine a voice gateway tied off my Class 5 PSTN switch with Primary Rate ISDN or DS-1 trunks on one side and a large data pipe on the other. That data pipe can either be dedicated “trunking” to another voice gateway or connecting to the public Internet and a clearinghouse of some sort.
Do you know of any Internet Telephony Service Providers who are looking for voice gateways to be part of their network?

If you want to offer your customers VoIP service, your ISP should be connect with carrier. Then next step your customer will using this service. Your need gateway and billing system. The solution could be found in many company website.17th July 2003 at 06:56 #24644clive18Guest
Are you looking to be a reseller of VoIP services from an ITSP, or are you looking to set up your own infrustructure?
I have found that there are much better ISTP’s than Net2phone or Iconnect. Espcially if you want customer service!

I am executing the same project, can anyone recommend a good hosted billing service to me.
Victor you can post your address and we can share ideas. Are you in Africa, what part are you.
