allstar1: Interesting discussion. I travel alot and often take my home ata with me and plug into an available internet whereever I am or use my mobile data or use softphone on laptop with home number. I realise if I was making a 111 call I would have to be clear as to where I am. (of cause Im stuffed if I cant make voice sounds same as I would be with cell phone) Are you saying I should not be doing this. ie moving my ata around the country. It seems to me that in the future there will be little chance of ever knowing where a call is from exactly inless gps is attached or the internet connection I am using is traced somehow.
No. Can you see a better alternative to what you are doing. Not really. That is the nature of Voip -location unknown.
@DON - What Maverick is trying to say is that standards and processes make a useable network for you and me. And without standards, things would be a mess. This is case in point with CID spoofing. At present their is no right process for this to work morally/correctly.
Having first said to everyone here that CID spoofing was a cool feature, from what I have now read, I see that it is a mess to implement, and although is a cool end user feature, makes a mess behind the scenes.
From a business point of view, which it sound like Don, your not coming from, even if a method is great, it ALWAYS has to conform to processes and standards. If not, your business will FAIL!
It is just how it must always work.
