Hi Phil,

Is there any update on a rough timeframe for the ability to use Asterisk with VFX yet? A little birdy told me you're currently supporting Asterisk on DVX if you purchase 5+ trunks - is this correct? If so I may look at bringing some other lines over too.

Also, when (if at all) is WxC going to allow toll-free number portability?

Thanks ! Cool

Hi Will

Yes you are correct we are supporting Asterisk but there is a 5 Concurrent Call and 10 DDI minimum, it does not use the IP Centrex part of our Network and is a straight SIP interconnect, it's a commercial grade product so requires a Static IP and connection via that can terminate directly to us, we have done this so as to give a quality of service to businesses, as basically business do require a higher grade of connection.

It's being looked at but is not part of the LNP agreements at this stage, this is not just us as well btw

Yes I am a employee of WxC (My Profile) ... but I do have my own opinions as well Wink

Hi Phil,

Thanks for that - I'll give the sales guys a call next week to discuss that further. Any rough timeframe for supporting Asterisk on VFX (for my home line)?

And don't worry I know that several others aren't doing toll-free porting yet - just wanted to bring as many of my services over to wxc as I could Cool

Just to add further support to this, I would also be delighted to be able to connect my - home based - Asterisk box directly to VFX rather than needing to access via an x100p and the WAG54GP2 VOIP ports.

Cheers Mike
