but the OOMA phone the most broken up dialog iv'e ever heard,could not understand a complete sentence. Everything is connected properly as per OOMA. The connection download and upload is more than sufficient. Conclusion the OOMA hardware and software is not ready for voip usage. They should not put out a product and beta test on customers. If packet 8 can do it and thats 5 years old then OOMA better fix their jitter problems or word will spread very quickly on the web and there will be no OOMA.
Pure Voice? Is that supposed to solve the problem? If so when does the upgrade come out?
I was going to replace my Packet 8 voip phone with OOMA but I can't since OOMA only work on oneway conversation, guess I'll
have to return OOMA and try them at a later date when you can use the phone for a conversation.
By the way the quality of the recipient to me is excellent, better than Packet 8. 3/27/10
Your guess is likely wrong. The most likely cause is the connection provided by your ISP. Run the test at http://www.whichvoip.com/voip/speed_test/ppspeed.html and get an expert opinion, independent of Ooma, on the suitability of your connection for VoIP.shoreside2 wrote:My guess as to jiterry voice is with the OOMA modem or software.

My opinions are my own.
It could be both but obviously whatever might be wrong with your isp, P8 has their device set to be more tolerant but we need stats other than bandwidth to really know. Ooma is reportedly less tolerant of jitter than some others but my line is clean so I can't tell. For all we know Packet 8 could have a 10ms jitter buffer set in their ATA but Ooma who knows? Since none of us has a carrier grade internet connection, consumer oriented voip has to have a bit of tolerance to such imperfect conditions to be considered viable.shoreside2 wrote:? If it's my isp and i wish it was. Then why does my packet 8 voip work perfectly. I don't think my isp dicriminates between voip providers. Again I wish it was my isp, both voip phones are running side by side on the same network and i have tested the isp.
As far as discrimination by your isp for your own choice of voip, Packet 8 uses the standard port 5060 for sip signaling and Ooma uses a VPN port, both carry RTP traffic over the range between port 10000 and 20000 and RTP is where the voice is REALLY carried, as long as your sip signaling port isn't blocked by your isp it should not matter. I doubt anyone would block a range of 10000 ports.
