SureVoIP Broadband now available

SureVoIP’s new VoIP optimised Internet connectivity takes all your telephone call traffic straight into the SureVoIP core network (now celebrating its 1st anniversary) without having to go over the public internet. This gives you the best possible business grade phone call.

This, along with SureVoIP’s presence in the two main UK public Internet exchanges, LINX and LONAP, enables it to be in full control of your traffic and thus provide a higher level of service – providing one of the best networks for business VoIP in the UK.

We are extremely happy to offer, after 8 months testing, four tiers of VoIP optimised business broadband:

  1. SureVoIP Business Premier
  2. SureVoIP Business Standard
  3. SureVoIP Business Basic
  4. SureVoIP Fibre (FTTC)

These products have a bigger download speed vs upload speed.

We can also offer:

  1. Leased Lines / Ethernet
  2. EFM (Ethernet for the First Mile)
  3. Custom point to point solutions for larger businesses

These products offer the same download and upload speed.

VoIP Optimised Broadband update

Dear all,

Just a quick update to let you know where we are with our broadband roll out. We’ve been working with Fluidata SEP to get our own platform, interconnects, resilience and quality right before releasing the final services. We’re very happy with the result. Right now we have some BT Wholesale ADSL (for VoIP only IPv6 broadband), LLU ADSL (which will be our unlimited data product) and BT Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) live and in use with select customers and SureVoIP Partners. We also have some Ethernet Fibre products about to go live with customers.

It’s all just about there and is currently in the final stages. What’s left is Quality Of Service (QoS) testing for VoIP/SIP, integration with the SureVoIP API for SureVoIP Partners and our own use and a Broadband Checker for the main website. It’s taken a long time, but doing things right always does. Much better than us just adding a margin on to someone else’s internet connectivity products, where as this way we have lots of control and your traffic comes straight in to the SureVoIP Network.

The new customer portal is also making excellent progress which will be available for Beta usage next month, all going well. More when we have it.

Thanks as always,

Gavin.

Network migration date for SureVoIP services

Hi all,

After 4 months of testing we are ready to switch customers over to our own network.

This will take place on Friday 28th February at 10pm until midnight. Services will be interrupted and intermittent during this time. If you are a SureVoIP Hosted VoIP customer, then you may need to restart your phones when you come in to the office on Monday, but most should be fine. Over the next week we advise those running on site phone systems or strict firewalls to adjust your firewall if you haven’t already. Please add a new rule to allow traffic into your network from 185.8.92.0/27. For those of you that are not technical please forward this email to your IT department.

SureVoIP Partners have already been advised of these changes. If you have any questions or custom requirements please email support@surevoip.co.uk

You can follow our progress via our Service Status page and SureVoIP Status twitter account from 10pm on Friday 28th February onwards. Please note: the current network will still continue to work for 30 days from the 28th February and we’ll keep an eye on those that have hardcoded any of the current IP addresses.

Thanks,

Gavin.

SureVoIP is now an independent IP network operator and 2014

Dear all,

Some of you will already know that currently SureVoIP rents servers in London and owns and co-locates some in Edinburgh. This is all about to change. Those of you that follow SureVoIP on Twitter and read the SureVoIP Blog or have chatted to me personally at GraniteExpo 2013 last month will already know all about this.

As of now we are an independent ISP, but more specifically an Internet Telephony Service Provider in our own right. We made our first test VoIP call last week across are new network. Here are the details and what you can expect this to bring to our SureVoIP Partners, your customer and our direct customers. This has been fully self-funded (and fully paid for outright) via your hard work which is now almost fully deployed:

  • Juniper and Cisco based with an on site 4 hour response support SLA
  • Full Out of Band management network
  • RIPE LIR – https://stat.ripe.net/as199659
  • IPv4 and IPv6 based using our directly assigned IP address allocations
  • Based in Telehouse East – full rack and directly contracted with Telehouse
  • Small PoP in Edinburgh which will be expanded once we join IXScotland
  • Level3 Tier 1 provider for transit – directly contracted with Level3
  • NTT Tier 1 provider for transit – directly contracted with NTT
  • Members of LINX (London Internet Exchange) –  Check the members page – https://www.linx.net/about/memberlist/letter/S
  • Fluidata interconnect for full UK coverage in order to for us to provide internet connectivity which is VoIP optimised. This includes ADSL, FTTX, EFM, Leased lines, VPLS and MPLS services (we can start doing quotations for you now)
  • Interconnect/peering with current ISP partners
  • Interconnecting with BT Wholesale (via physical fibres) and existing carriers
  • All on-net access meaning VoIP calls from our internet products do not cross the public internet
  • Those of you that wish to host VoIP equipment with us and be physically connected, now can be
  • SLA’s when using our own connectivity products
  • New SIP security platform allowing fully encrypted SIP trunks (which is currently only available on hosted handset calls)
  • IPv6 VoIP ability
  • Broadband with no general internet access for security, allowing low cost VoIP optimised connectivity directly in to our platforms
  • New dual services using SRV records and/or two IP addresses, no more Primary and Secondary
  • Much more contracted control with less hops (try pinging/traceroute to 185.8.92.61-62 versus sip.surevoip.co.uk)
  • Connected to the core of the UK internet
  • Microsoft Lync compatible SIP trunks using new security platform (including Office365 Enterprise)
  • Members of IXScotland Steering Committee
  • New public access contacts platform available via our public LDAP servers – ldap.surevoip.co.uk – sync with LinkedIn, Google etc.
  • New portal coming for billing with call packages, partner access, per customer tariffs and discount, nice invoices with call stats and graphs which is all driven by the SureVoIP API
  • Partner access monitoring platform to monitor your customers IP networks and services

as well as all of above the following things are ongoing:

That’s a lot to digest and I’m sure you have tons of questions! We’ll keep you updated on the migration plans and new IP addresses too.

Lastly, don’t forget our opening hours for the Christmas period.

Thanks,

Gavin.

Scottish VoIP gets a boost – LINX and Scottish Government announce the launch of new Internet Exchange for Scotland

SureVoIP are very excited to share the news about IXScotland being launched. It will mean the Scottish based internet traffic stays in Scotland, which is great news for Scottish customers using Voice Over IP (VoIP):

(28/10/2013) – LINX is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new Internet Exchange for Scotland, which is now fully installed and will be passing its first Internet traffic over the next few days. The exchange called IXScotland will be LINX’s first dedicated Internet Exchange (IXP) for the region.

Hosted at Pulsant’s South Gyle data centre in Edinburgh (formerly Scolocate), IXScotland is built using the hardware from Extreme’s Summit X460 Series. The new IXP will allow ISPs and content providers with customers in Scotland to “keep local traffic local” by reducing the need to exchange traffic in London, resulting in reduced latency and faster connectivity for Scottish networks and Internet users.

Today’s launch is the culmination of months of consultation with the local network community and the Scottish Government. The IXP launched with many networks connected from the start and with more to follow. The launch was welcomed by the Scottish Government with the Cabinet Secretary, John Swinney, who visited IXScotland just before launch and said:

“We are delighted to welcome the establishment of a dedicated Internet Exchange Point for Scotland which will speed up Internet access for businesses and individuals. I want to recognise the key contribution of LINX, who have worked with the industry and Scottish Government to make this happen.”.

John Souter, CEO of LINX, said: “IXScotland is a real step forward for the Internet community in Scotland and the UK as a whole. The exchange will allow networks to stop ‘tromboning’ traffic to London and back again, and will help increase resilience by creating a new centre for interconnection in the UK.”

LINX members can connect to any of our IXPs without additional membership fees. To help grow the exchange and build a critical mass of connected networks, all available port speeds, from 100M to 10G, will be free at launch until 2015.
