Telecommunications

Telecommunication occurs when the exchange of information between two or more entities (communication) includes the use of technology. Communication technology uses channels to transmit information (as electrical signals), either over a physical medium (such as signal cables), or in the form of electromagnetic waves. The word is often used in its plural form, telecommunications, because it involves many different technologies.

I don't to want SIP server siting on West end of country when our building is at East End.  Is anyone who experience with them? any feed back? or SIP provider who does good what they do?

A customer has recently had new phones installed that connect to a cloud based PBX.  They have a Draytek 2860 router.

They have sent me a document with the required entries in yellow (attached).

I presume they are asking that the firewall be opened up for those specific ports to the hostnames/ip addresses provided.

Can someone explain how I do this on th Draytek router

Our chairman calls his assistant and dictates emails over the phone for his newly hired assistant to type and send out. Sometimes she has difficulties to keep up with him and we really need a device, program or something for her to record his conversation and listen to again ?

I am preparing to upgrade from ECC version 8 to ECC version 9.
In doing so we will need to upgrade the Agent and Supervisor Clients. When we upgrade the application on the client computers will our users have to log back into the agent application or will it remember their credentials after the upgrade?

I would also like feedback on any other gotcha's people experienced during this upgrade.

I would like to receive faxes on computer. I have a 56k USB modem attached to computer, however the telephone line is digital (PBX). Is there any way I can receive faxes on PC via PBX line?
Any additional adapter/converter required?
Any other alternative? (Note I cannot have faxes stored on an external server or anywhere other than the local computer)

PS: This set up works on an analog line but I get error on Windows Fax program when I use on PBX line

We have a Toshiba Net Server (phone system) that we took over from another company but we are not familiar at all with this system.
Right now they have a DID and a toll free number that rings into one specific phone and if that person doesn't answer there is a hunt group (or something similar) that will then ring the next phone. (haven't found the hunt group yet either)

What we want to do is change the first phone that rings but I haven't found where to do that. So instead of person A getting all the calls first we want them to go to person B.

Does anyone have any experience with this system? eManager is V5.20B12Cx86

I recently moved a small Call Center from one location to another. They contacted me late in the game to help them get a new call center setup with very little time. This left me with Comcast as the only ISP to choose from that could install services within their timetable. We decided to go with their new Gigabit package, which includes their new Gb modem. The client also chose to go with Jive for their PBX needs and subsequently ordered 20 Yealink T40P IP phones. Let the issues begin...

Comcast's modem would partially default to factory settings once a week. When I say partial, I mean things such as factory internal Gateway IP and Subnet revert back; passwords are set to default, yet the SSID's are still what we created. Comcast claims that they can ping the modem but when I test connectivity inside the modem to the internet I get 0/4 packets received. This test was run by the modem internal troubleshooting software. The Uptime clock inside the modem says 17,500+ days, which is not possible since we have reset the modem within the last 24 hours and we have only had the service for three weeks. We have factory reset the modem, replaced it with a new one, and we are still having the Yealink phones not obtain an IP address, or they have an IP address but say "No Service", even after they have previously worked. Phones continue to drop off of the network in that manner, and PC's that are using pass-through are losing connectivity as well. No matter how many factory resets on …

We have an old Asterisk (v.2.x) phone server in our office.  I'm new to the system and need to change an extension number from a rapid busy signal to a working extension.  Also, we have several extension that simple hang-up when dialed (no tones of any sort).  How do we edit those extensions?

I'm new to Linux, but I've figured out how to browse directories and edit conf files.

We are in the need of a new phone system and there seems to be a mix of vendors pushing a hosted solution.  Has anyone upgraded in the past couple years to a hosted PBX solution and want to share the experience?  Of course the vendors not offering a hosted solution say to stay away from them they are not reliable.  I understand a lot of the bad from hosted is likely a so so Internet connection.  We have 100x100 fiber so I don't think that would pose an issue.  The big downfall I see is you pay for the hosted forever where an appliance based system, you buy it once and usually good for 10+ years.

Hello all,

I need to configure the Sonus gateway to route inbound calls to Toll Free number (main number) based on their area code to their particular response group on my Skype for Business server.

For instance, I have a response group for Chicago with DID 312XXXXXX and I have a main toll free number in which case all the calls come to this particular DID (800XXXXXXX) so I need to route all incoming calls from Chicago to the Chicago response group and the same thing for every other state.

I made the area codes already so all calls coming from Chicago state is directly forwarded to the Chicago response groups but the only thing I couldn't do is route all inbound calls coming to the Toll Free number to the response groups.

I would appreciate any advise on this.

Hi all, I am in the process of diverting an incoming call to a particular number on Sonus gateway from a number (Inbound let's say 5000 number) to an external PSTN number 9999 and I would like to do this on the Gateway's end not on the Lync client.

I was able to do this on the client end by simply entering the number in the call forward on client side but if I do this through the gateway with Normalization rule (using Transformation table) with the appropriate Signaling group and Call routing table I get no error in the logs if I choose one ITSP or I get Proxy Authentication Required if I choose another ITSP as signaling group destination.

How do I solve this authentication issue when forwarding calls from a number to another? I have been reading articles but mostly it says it has to do with sip manipulation but I don't want to manipulate the sip, I just want to forward call from a number to another.

I would appreciate any suggestion.
Thanks

When I have someone on hold, and I'm engaging in a consultative transfer (speaking with the person I am about to transfer them to), the headset switches to speakerphone for 1 second every few minutes. It results in me not being able to hear them mid-speech and vice versa; its a real pain. It happens to all 7 of our phones, throughout the building. Have tried speaking with Mitel, system help companies, looking through the set-up manual, looking through the troubleshooting section, googling the exact issue.... etc etc. Nothing! Please can anyone help? My boss has given me the task of "sorting it out" and I just can't seem to :( Thanks, Sophie.

My Company just bought the Polycom 7000 and want it hooked up to the Samsung 7400. Documentation for just about any of the Samsung 7400 systems is rare and even harder to find how to set anything up. If anyone has any experience setting up Non-Samsung Phones to Samsung phone systems I would be grateful.
