Could you get a E1 to the phone company network on Iraq at this moment???
I heard that was next to imposible to get that done in Iraq, most operators that I know only have a sattellite link to the internet and a place where outgoing calls could be made.
No conection wahtsoever to the normal PSTN ntwork on the country.
You are absolutelly right about the bandwith issue.
Also, unfortunatelly, the cheap options on sattelite bandwith, almost guarantied not to work with VOIP.
Try them out with VOIP before you buy a expensive tranceiver.17th February 2004 at 06:19 #26453garyGuest
what you want is a softswitch that acts like a signalling proxy. by this I mean that it only passes messages and does not need to host the required bandwidth for each call. This way, there is no need to have bandwidth capacity to host the incoming and outgoing sides of the call if you just point the two end devices to eachother directly. check out http://www.qtelnet.com because the softswitch they just released is based on this feature and they let you get a free two port version. Contact peter, he is the sales rep for international.
the switch they have also has a prepaid calling card plugin and generates CDR’s and supports SIP->H323, h323->h323, SIP->SIP and h323->SIP with no additional configuration.
good luck with your business.19th February 2004 at 03:48 #26454lisaGuest

I have had good experience using Voicemaster gear for prepaid calling cards, we are runing prepaid calling cards in Northern Virginia and Canada.
http://www.procomm100.net and you can also see http://www.raniphone.com the Voicemaster is a h323-sip gatekeeper that can be configured Proxy, Static or routed mode and has a complete Radius/Gatekeeper based solution integrated to a Sybase database on a Http graphic user interface.
I think is the best you can get in the market for the price.
You can contact me if you need more information.8th April 2004 at 07:31 #26457aramGuest
you can have the system even without softswitch.
CiscoAS5300 and a billing solution.
