<< And with regard to the subject GVE support on the Hub, I don't even hear the proverbial fat lady warming up yet.

Especially when they say, "The now-ancient Ooma Hub-box is 'too slooooow' to support wiz-bang features such as GVE." Since all the data-signal switching and alerting of the box on a phone-number using GVE takes place on back-end routes and server farms, you could have a tin-can on a wax-string tied to Ooma and still have GVE working. It's a red-herring, designed to buy time and keep the customer quiet (and make them do some hardware upgrading).

Obviously I don't have privileged access or inside knowledge of their architecture, but that's what I was thinking also, Soundjudgment. It's all very likely to be back-end work. Has nothing to do with our CPE.

Agreed that the "too slow" response sounds like a smokescreen.

...It also says bad things about Ooma's business model. We all hopped on because Ooma is such a great deal long term and has reasonably nice hardware. (I bought mine a couple of days before the Telo was announced.)

But it seems as if the Ooma model may rely more on releasing new hardware every year or so. The next step might be to drop support for the Hub completely.

I think that the last Hub update was on 6/6. I bet they just aren't developing for the Hub anymore. But they aren't marking it end of life.

Within the first few months of using it, I was a rabid Ooma supporter, and convinced a couple of other people to buy. Now...I can no longer immediately recommend their product.

This thread, top of page 4.
Could be she was including GVE with the HD Voice support as they were all announced together. I hope we've all worked out that we'll definitely never see HD Voice support on the Hub. That probably just isn't possible owing to hardware limitations.


Any new extensions or new features will be supported by the Telo, not the hub.
The is because the Telo has a faster processor which will allow these expansions, the hubs processor would not support these.
