Default Thank you Voxalot

Folks:
The more I go deep into Voxalot the more I get impressed. In my opinion it is too good to be true. One of the great features is the “Providers” in which you can collect all your SIP and VoIP accounts in one Voxalot account. I have one SPA 3102 that provides 1 SIP account for incoming calls. I was thinking of buying another SPA (2102 or 3102) to be able to register more than one account. The “Providers” feature solved this problem for me. I am asking everyone now to start calling me on my Voxalot SIP number. So I did not test the quality of calls should I receive a call from another SIP account. I also did not try it for outgoing calls. The only risk I am worried about is if Voxalot is done for whatever reason, all my other accounts (including paid ones) are also down. Nevertheless I have to admit that I am very impressed with the effort being made by Voxalot team.

This open the door for many questions that I did not answers to at Voxalot website.

1) Who is behind Voxalot? In the world of free economy nothing for free. Who is behind all this effort?
2) How does Voxalot recover costs? Is this a commercial activity in a beta (soft) opening that later will charge for its service?
3) Does Voxalot offer directly (or through a third party) outgoing calls service so I can dial out PSTN numbers? If so what is the website for it? I am using the “Providers” feature to do this right now.

Keep the good work.

Voxalot has been developed by HA Enterprises a specialty IT services firm in Sydney, Australia founded by x-IBM Consultants. The team developed and built sip broker and Voxalot over a period of a couple of years and are continuing to improve the service and provide support via the forums to the member base. Forum support is also provided with help from volunteer moderators, whom we are very great full to for their time and efforts.

Currently Voxalot is not recovering its costs, it has been self funded to date. Yes the service is a commercial business and as mentioned previously in this forum, Voxalot will be launching a premium service which will bundle some of the current advanced functions for members who pay an annual subscription fee. However, the basic Voxalot service will remain free. The launch of the premium service is a few weeks away.

No - Voxalot does not offer directly or indirectly outgoing calls services to PSTN or mobile numbers. This is provided by Voice Service Providers in various countries as you have discovered in the Global Provider Index. This is an excellent source for both Voxalot members and the VoIP community at large to compare, rate and add VoIP providers based on their own experience with the specific services.

I am curious to know what will be considered basic and what will be premium. Any clue?

Me too, however you can read something here.
And because I read already that registration is premium, what are yearly costs?
Lower as costs of ATA?

Thank you John.

First let me add to my earlier posting that I did not know that SIPbroker is part of the effort made by Voxalot's team. The PSTN access numbers are beyond any belief. Thank you again folks.

Three things I noticed when using the SIP Broker PSTN access numbers. The sound in the Washington DC has a high base. In other words the sound is not crisp. I am not complaining but it is just a remark.

The quality of the Toronto access number is not reliable at all. I understand that these numbers are contribution from various providers.

When using the PSTN access numbers I end up unable to access my PSTN line connected to my SPA 3102. There is a problem with the DTMF. I don't know how to fix it because it works perfectly when I access it directly or through IPKall.

Provider registrations, Web/Mobile mobile callback, Call Forwarding and a new support ticketing system will only be available to premium members.
Back to the original subject, let us wait for the announcement. By the way what is "Provider registrations"?

This is where you set SIP Registration to YES so that you can directly receive incoming calls. Outgoing calls usually don't require registration. Incoming calls can sometimes be done by forwarding the call via the service provider itself.

This makes sense. I was surprised that the FORWARD feature will be considered premium, while PROVIDERS which is a very unique feature to Voxalot will remain basic. According to what you mentioned, the registered providers (incoming calls) will be premium while unregistered (outgoing calls) will remain basic.
