Default VoXaLot Launches European Server

To all VoXaLot Members,

On the 18th of January we posted a thread on our support forum stating that we would be building a European cluster to improve the quality of the VoXaLot service for European members. This decision was based on the feedback we received from our European members in a recent survey we conducted.

Today I am pleased to announce that VoXaLot has publicly launched its first European server. Based on some early testing that members have conducted, the results show much improved latency times.

The Netherlands ~ 10ms
UK ~ 55ms
Belgium ~ 21 ms
Ukraine ~ 93 ms
Russia ~ 71ms
Norway ~ 32ms

By utilising the new server, our European Members will experience an even greater level of service from VoXaLot. The new cluster has been designed to fully interoperate with the other VoXaLot clusters in the U.S. and Australia, thus ensuring members can reach any other member irrespective of their location.

To use the new cluster, simply change your device / phone proxy to use:

eu.voxalot.com

The domain / realm should be set to:

voxalot.com

Then log into the VoXaLot web site and change your preferred cluster to:

eu.voxalot.com

Note You will need to set the SIP Register flag for each of your providers to "No" before the system will allow you to change your preferred cluster.

To test the change dial: *600 (echo test).

We have also allocated a new SIP Broker SIP-Code *031 that points directly to this cluster. This SIP-Code will also allow anyone to call our European members by dialling *031xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is your VoXaLot number) from any fixed line or mobile phone via the SIP Broker PSTN access numbers listed HERE

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support of VoXaLot. At VoXaLot the Team’s goal here is to ensure our members have the best possible user experience and, where possible, we try and respond to your requests as soon as we can. Please continue to provide feedback on current and possible future functionality.

Tony.

Thank you for this improvement! There is something I am missing, however: if any user can bypass the Voxalot RTP proxy by using a STUN server, why do you bother setting up additional servers closer to your users? Is it simply to make the SIP negotiation faster, which requires Voxalot as the middleman? Or are there cases in which users cannot avoid going through Voxalot for the actual RTP voice traffic and you are thus attempting to reduce voice latency for them?

Many of our members rely on server side NAT handling and RTP processing. This new server will help improve their experience and improve call quality.

In addition, VoXaLot initiates Web / Mobile Callbacks from the members preferred cluster. With callbacks, VoXaLot handles the RTP traffic for both call legs. European members that use Web / Mobile Callback should notice significant improvements with this new server.

Might be a good idea to make this post a sticky for a while or create a new folder for new enhancement / important annoncements

Doesn't work for me! I deregistered my providers, changed proxy, reregistered them, and changed my ATA.

12 hours later, still failing reg! Switched back to US and it's instantly on

The same here, it looks after pinging eu.voxalot.com that it is slower than us.voxalot.com...

But i will try it later on anyway...

Well done Voxalot!!

It's working for me in the UK.

The changed routing makes quite a difference:

US server cluster:

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 87ms, Maximum = 88ms, Average = 87ms

NL server cluster:

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 15ms, Maximum = 15ms, Average = 15ms
