A new patent troll.

SIP Trunking

In the last few weeks a large sleeping troll has come out of hibernation and seems set on disrupting the whole voip market.

Quote

“BT is engaged in licensing an extensive range of standards related patents that address the key features of SIP Trunking providers and VOIP operators providers.

BT’s Patents address a wide range of fundamental capabilities now in widespread deployment, such as:

  • Setting up a call
  • Breaking out to other networks
  • Managing resources efficiently
  • Registering terminal to a network
  • Cost effective call completion
  • Monitoring and alerting of IP call quality”

Well that pretty much covers all of the workings of a SIP network. A full list of the patents is here  .

But its not Just BT, AT&T also have claims over SIP as well see here for a list.

It seems that some of the major patent holders see more money in the licencing of the now ubiquitous SIP protocol than maybe supplying it to customer. Which is a shame as the only ones who will make any money will be the Lawyers in the end.

More to follow on this I’m sure….

Mitel SNMP Alarm monitoring

As part of our ongoing improvements to our Alarm and fault monitoring service we are now pleased to be able to offer proactive monitoring of the Mitel 3300ICP snmp alarm output.3300
This monitoring is proactive, meaning we check the system at regular intervals from our Nagios platform and will raise alarms on power failing as well as all mitel snmp alarm levels.

mitel alarm example

The alarm can be emailed or txt’d to single or group of addresses.

All that is required is fixed external hostname or IP address and port 161 or another random port forwarded to port 161 so we can connect and the snmp configuration on the Mitel system to allow our systems IP address to connect.

If you are interested in this service the standard charge £25 per site per year for more details please email or call us.
