Ooma Pure Voice

Post by bohicaIL » Tue Feb 23, 2010 2:40 pm

Any further news on when "Ooma Pure Voice" is to be rolled out? I thought it was February 2010, but we're rapidly running out of February.

Not to worry. March is just around the corner.

I hope they rollout the Purevoice out soon.. I will at come to know if I have to abandon Ooma and get someother VOIP provider that is less sensitive to upstream jitter. I am not expecting that Purevoice will solve the issue that most of us are having with call quality when upstream jitter is > 4 ms but worth the wait to find out

What leads you to believe another 'VoIP provider' can handle the problems of signal-jitter any better? The idea is to not have it at all, instead of spending all that time finding a provider who can tolerate it.

Actually I had Vonage and it does handle jitter better. From what I understand - it depends on the SIP termination point and how much they buffer at the expense of latency. Wimax has a jitter of about 10 ms and a ping of 70 ms to the first to the Ooma server. So having a buffer on the other end that buffers for about 200 ms actually solves the issue.

Try Vonage and you will see what I mean.

At the prices they charge their customers each month?? No thanks. ;)

True that Vonage costs at least $24 with taxes but that is not the issue at hand. The issue at hand is that OOMA infrastructure does not handle jitter well. And that is a bummer since it is much cheaper than everyone else. Why does cheap have to be bad? Oh well..

Anyways.. to any OOMA representative reading this post.. please up the jitter buffer at your termination points.. it doesn't cost you a dime...

Not being an expert in this area, I can only assume what quantumpot is saying might make a huge difference in my phone calls (and maybe others). While my upload speeds are adequate, and I have no packet loss (according to voip speed tests) they show a range of jitter issues. If Ooma could increase Jitter tolerance, I suspect all the phone quality issues I (and others) am having might be a thing of the past.

Pure Voice is currently in beta - folks in the beta program have found several issues that we're currently working on resolving before the feature can be released to all Telos.
