    Default BYOD Users: Testing Michigan Datacenter

    Hey Guys,


    We're doing some casual testing of a few new datacenters that we are considering adding into the mix so that there is an alternative option outside of our primary datacenter available for you guys to use if you prefer it for some reason.


    Right now, we're testing a facility in Michigan. If you'd like to try it out, you can connect to sip7.voipwelcome.com instead of sip.voipwelcome.com. All BYOD users can register to it (and all reseller/resold accounts).


    Please let me know what your connectivity is like to this facility and if you feel it's a better or worse connection for you. Traceroutes would be very helpful with feedback.


    Our Dallas datacenter is owned by IBM now and is rock solid with excellent connectivity for most people, but one big difference with it and some of the others we're evaluating is that it has a lot of direct ISP peering in its routing so if a user is using a major ISP like Cox or Comcast the traffic is likely being routed directly to it. Other facilities we're looking at adding as an alternative don't have as much peering so they may have better routing for customers not on major ISPs or for certain geographical areas.


    Current Facility: Softlayer - http://www.softlayer.com/about/network/carriers

    sip.voipwelcome.com


    Possible Addition/Alternative: Liquidweb - http://www.liquidweb.com/datacenter/network.html
    sip7.voipwelcome.com


    Again, this is just something we're testing. We are extremely happy with our current facility but have a few datacenters we're considering adding to the mix and this one in Michigan is currently our top choice so we'd like to get some testing. We have one reseller that seems to have a poor connection to our Dallas facility for some reason so we're re-exploring adding some diversity to the SIP server mix.


    If anyone wants to test, please let me know how your connection (and post traceroutes if possible to compare). We'd like to get as much "real-world" data as possible.

    Thanks!

    I get 17 hops to sip. and 15 hops to sip7.

    I have attached a screenshot of both trace routes.

    It appears to me from my firewall logs that sip7 is also handling the audio traffic... True in all cases or just some? Just trying to tighten my firewall rules up here.

    Moved to a new home office this morning—I now have Comcast and had CenturyLink prior—and I have been having issues registering so I figured I’d come over to the forums to see if there were other similar reports. Not seeing any and not being certain if my new Internet connection is to blame, I came across this thread and figured I’d give sip7 a try—and I have had zero registration issues since using it. While audio latency seems to be a bit more pronounced than sip.voipwelcome.com, my registration with sip7 appears to be solid.

    I can confirm what Bink experienced. I had to move multiple accounts in several different cities over to SIP7.

    Slightly higher ping times and more hops, but much more reliable connections.

    All of my locations using Comcast in particular had to be moved to SIP7.

    Your mileage may vary, but SIP7 seems more stable.

    I agree. sip.voipwelcome.com has been acting real flakey over the past couple of weeks (calls going to failover when registered, etc.). The reliability of this SIP server at Dallas compared to sip-central01 is definitely noticeable.

    Lots of strange things happening of late...and it reminds me of the same issues experienced in this thread:
    http://forums.voipo.com/showthread.p...oipwelcome.com

    I had my father (located in Texas) who is on BYOD switch over to sip7 and the problems have simply went away.....

    We haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary, but I know some users have reported sip7 works better for them. If we find anything we'll address it, but so far it just seems like some people have better connectivity to sip7 and some better to sip.

    Tim - would love to see a new server on the West Coast, used to use sip-west01 before it was taken down. Any plans to setup one on the left coast?

    I agree with racer... would love to see North, South, East and West. That should provide options to get around quirky local ISP issues, and provide good performance to more users.
