There is a problem with the C server and it needs to be restarted again after the maintenance yesterday evening. We are going to do this at 17:00 as we need it to be done as soon as possible. Sorry for the short notice.

We will be carrying out some maintenance on our 'C' SIP server outside office hours. It will cause disruption to calls, but is likely only to last a couple of minutes and will only affect calls on the A and C servers. It will not affect calls on our "voiceless" SIP platform or SIP2SIM. We will do this on Thursday evening at around 22:30. Please contact support if you have any questions.
10 Apr 23:19:59
Completed earlier this evening.

Work on the billing system has resulted in interim data and call usage bills today. These will have normal payment terms, and obviously mean lower charges on your next bill. If any customers need extra time to pay because these are interim bills, please contact accounts who can extend the terms on this occasion.
14 Apr 20:20:46
We have extended the terms on these interim invoices by two weeks for those otherwise due this month.
15 Apr 07:55:13
For the technically minded - what we were attempting to do was sort an issue where a SIM gets suspended on the date of the last bill, and so the suspend date and the billed-to date are the same but some usage has not been billed for that day. We had customer complaints about this and the fact that up to a day's worth of calls and usage were not billed. The fix was a tad overzealous. We think we have this sorted now though. I do apologise for any concern this has caused.

Customers using our VoIP services will be aware that we have reserved 10 IPv4 addresses for all of our VoIP control traffic. For our current platform "Voiceless" these are also used for the media (RTP) traffic. This makes firewalling simpler, etc. Customers using asterisk will know that the config for these can be somewhat complex, listing 10 hostnames each for IPv4 and IPv6 as the way asterisk works is to look up an IP for a hostname, pick the first, and check that against the request IP address. Asterisk really needs fixing. For voiceless we have been using two addresses and as well as IPv6 addresses 2001:8b0:0:30::5060::1 and 2001:8b0:0:30::5060::2. We recently tried a slight change on the IPv6 addresses, and this caused some issues. What we are planning to do now, for the "voiceless" call servers is use two addresses per server for each of IPv4 and IPv6. These shall be and for the A server and and for the B server. You do not need to know if A or B. The additional two addresses will be used as "source" addresses for any request from these servers to you that need authentication. This allows asterisk to be configured separately for authenticated and unauthenticated requests. Requests may also come from other addresses within the published block when test servers are used, etc. We are also making the corresponding change to IPv6 addresses using :1 and :3 for the A server and :2 and :4 for the B server. We may adjust which IPs are which server at a future date as we also have to consider how we expand beyond the two servers in use currently. These IPs will be accessible via DNS as and, and so on. If your existing asterisk config is working as per the recommendations, no changes will be needed. The wiki will be updated to explain how you can use these changes.
12 Apr 08:44:38

We have made changes this morning - these are slightly different to planned so as to allow for future expansion.

A.voiceless and 2001:8b0:0:30::5060:1

A.Auth.voiceless and 2001:8b0:0:30::5060:2

B.voiceless and 2001:8b0:0:30::5060:3

B.Auth.voiceless and 2001:8b0:0:30::5060:4

I believe all of the necessary DNS changes have been made to match and allow existing configs to work.

12 Apr 17:56:53
We have seen some issues with calls to registered phones coming from the auth'd address and this is being looked in to now.
12 Apr 18:46:08
We tracked it down - and was a slight error in this mornings config. IPv4 was all coming from the auth address even if no authentication required. This would have had an impact on some calls to some devices not working properly during today.

We are working on changes to the source IP addresses used for SIP messages we send where we have authentication details to provide. The reason is that asterisk boxes cannot easily be configured to tell "peers" from "users" in order to decide if a challenge is needed. This has caused problems for customers using VoIP unauthenticated from our IPs and SIP2SIM authenticated as a user. The first stage of the change has been done today, and involves the source IPv6 addresses. For all authenticated IPv6 messages (i.e. those for which we expect a challenge) we are sending from 2001:8b0:0:30::5060:a000/116 whilst any unauthenticated are from 2001:8b0:0:30::5060::/116 As this is within the 2001:8b0:0:30::5060::/112 block we have advised for VoIP use, this should not need any firewall changes or config changes, but we are interested in any feedback on any issues encountered. The change for IPv4 will take a bit longer - as we are unsure if to try and free up space in the range previously advised, or to allocate a new range for this. This only affects calls originating from the new "voiceless" servers, which includes all SIP2SIM, but affects all authenticated messages whether SIP2SIM or otherwise. Please let us know of any issues.

During the coming week we are making a number of minor changes to our VoIP systems. These changes include both the call servers themselves (voiceless) and the back end database call routing servers and even changes on the control pages (clueless). None of these changes should impact existing VoIP customers, they are to allow a new service which we hope to launch next year. We are currently testing on our trial systems, which involves several levels of voice servers and database call routing servers which are not part of the live platform. The next step is testing on our office VoIP platform. This puts calls to/from our offices at risk from Monday, but is an important step before deploying on live systems. When we are happy with all of the changes we will introduce in to the live VoIP platform, one server at a time, in such that we can easily fall back to the old version if there are problems.

I.e. if you have three digit local (centrex) dialling, and extensions 111 and 101, we suggest you reassign these internal numbers.

101 and 111 now route to a carrier for non emergency police and HNS direct.

As you know we have multiple call servers, including an "old" one that is used by a few customers that still use NAT or IAX.

There is a setting to control this which staff can adjust. It defines which call server you are using for a specific number.

Up until now this has not been checked for outgoing calls. However, the "old" call server cannot do the same level of checking as the new call server (e.g. IP address lockdown), and it looks like this has left a possible loophole allowing calls made using the "old" call server for numbers that are configured for the new server.

We have updated the system to disallow this. If you are set to use the new calls servers (as all new numbers are) then you will not be able to make use of the "old" call server.

Staff are monitoring the logs to see if this happens so they can contact customers. However, if you have problems making calls today please contact support.

This was due to a change made to fix a problem where password changes were not being applied to the A server without manual intervention.

As I am sure you are aware, our control pages allow you to enter location details for use in the event of an emergency call (999/112).

To date this has been an issue with some of the number blocks we have, and the details have not been updated in to the BT database to pass to emergency services in all cases. Obviously we have made this clear to you on the control pages.

However, I am pleased to say that due to a sort of phone number NAT we are now able to do this for all numbers. Any numbers we cannot update are allocated a special additional number (at no charge) which is just for use with 999/112. It is what is sent if you call 999 or 112 and starts 0200.

We hope to resolve the underlying problem with updates on all number blocks eventually, but this is a practical interim solution to ensure location data can be passed.

I urge all users of our VoIP servcies that use the service from a fixed location to update your location details on the control pages. This could save your life one day.

We have a list of minor niggles that has built up and we are planning to work on these this weekend. Most of the work will, of course, be on out test platform, but as we complete each stage we will be loading on the live VoIP system for final customer testing and confirmation.

This should not cause any problems, obviously. But there is a risk of issues arrising.

In general, the way the new VoIP system works, if there are problems then calls in progress continue but don't get charged.

Part of this work is testing IPv6 VoIP phones.

12 Feb 2011 13:47:21

Work has been done today on the test and backup server. We plan to apply these changes to the live server this evening.

The main changes have been down to slight quirks in the operation. e.g. voicemail not working unless call recoridng email also set; calls from some types of gigaset not gving right ring tone; Quirks when two simultaneous voicemails apply on one call; and such things.

Tomorrows work is going to be related to IPv6 interworking.

OK minor change to the syslog caller display format.


We were unabkle to complete the IPv6. We will be testing some IPv6 work on the test server during the week.

We had a minor issue routing calls on our SIP platform a few minutes ago.

It should be back to normal now, but we're investigating.

26 Jan 2011 15:44:35

We're rebooting c.speechless, our main SIP server.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

26 Jan 2011 16:07:48

There were some further problems. Now fixed.

AQL, one of the carriers we use for routing VoIP calls, is having some problems this morning.

We have changed routing for outbound calls to route via a different carrier for the moment, but some inbound calls may still be affected.

They're working to fix the problem as soon as possible.

26 Jan 2011 11:13:36

This problem has been resolved.

We've had a couple of moments this morning where VoIP calls had had problems. We are investigating and have clues as to what has been causing this. Calls are working at the moment and it's being monitored closely by staff.

10 Dec 2010 18:46:36

We believe we have found the cause of the issue and have deployed a work around and active monitoring.

We are keen to test IPv6 VoIP services, but initial testing has found a slight flaw in the logic!

Our SIP server handles IPv6, but it passes RTP between enpoints to negotiate for themselves. That works fine for codecs as we say customers have to support alaw and all carriers support alaw, so unless other preferences are agreed it is alaw.

However RTP pass-through does not work well for IPv6. In theory each end is told what to send to the other. And if one end says "send me IPv6" the other should. The problem is that the other end does not understand IPv6 and so the call fails. Sadly our call carriers are not IPv6 yet, so even if we support IPv6 and our customers support IPv6, it won't work.

To solve this we are working on a new generation of call server. It will have a simple back to back media gateway to allow IPv4/6 mapping. This may be a media forwarding box, or a special case of our firewall/routers creating customer mapping sessions. We have not decided yet.

However, we just want to re-assure customers we are commited to full IPv6 support for VoIP services.

Voicemail greeting messages were broken briefly earlier (around 16:04), resulting in silence when a call got to voicemail. It has been fixed. We're investigating the cause. Sorry for any inconvenience.

We just had a problem with VoIP calls being unable to be made - this affected accounts that have call recording enabled. (This also happened earlier this morning too) The cause of the problem will be investigated by our developers, we do apologise.

24 Nov 2010 11:44:29

This happened again just now for a few minutes. Calls are working again and we're investigating. Sorry for the inconvenience.

24 Nov 2010 12:17:05

We are still seeing some issues today, but have an idea what may be causing it at last. We'll update this evening.

24 Nov 2010 17:36:52

We have made a number of changes which should resolve the issue. We'll post another update if there are more problems.

25 Nov 2010 11:03:05

We had a problem again at 10:45 - now resolved, but clearly still some issues.

The main problem with calls recordings being delayed seems fixed now, which is good, but we are hitting something new now.

Being investigated.

26 Nov 2010 16:04:40

This happened again at around 15:25. We're still investigating.

29 Nov 2010 10:20:23

We are monitoring the situation still. Seems OK all weekend.

It seems the default recording format for new numbers (voicemail and call recordings) was set to MP3 by mistake. It is now WAV for all new numbers.

The MP3 option is the lowest quality option, and not the smallest size, so we would suggest anyone using MP3 consider the options and change if they wish. We have added a new options as well.

The options are:-

WAV: This is the largest file, with 8KHz 8bit alaw mono (voicemail) or stereo (recording). It is the best quality and is directly the data from the telephone network.

ZIP: You can opt for the WAV file zipped (may save 40% of file size)

OGG: OGG/Vorbis is the best trade off for quality and size that we offer

MP3: Provides compatibility with many players and is a lot smaller than WAV, but not as good quality as OGG or WAV
