Message from Link2VoIP, my voip provider. I thought iax2 was more stable than sip. If so what drugs are they on?
Dear Link2VoIP Customers,
This is an e-mail alert advising all customers currently using the IAX2
(Inter-Asterisk eXchange) protocol for Asterisk and TrixBox that they must
switch over to SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) immediately as IAX2 will no
longer be supported as of February 28, 2007.
Why the change? We have found, through rigorous tests of our network
infrastructure that IAX2 as a solution simply does not have the full
stability required to handle thousands or more simultaneous calls required
from VoIP carriers such as ours.
Phasing out IAX in favor of SIP (for the purpose of enhancing the
reliability and stability) will allow our company to grow with the network.
As stated on the Link2VoIP News Section for January 11th, we are in the
process of changing and upgrading our equipment which will allow us to
handle more calls efficiently while maintaining the highest quality of
service for our customers - using SIP allows us to achieve this goal.
Customers who are unsure of how to switch from IAX2 over to SIP, examples
have been posted to the help page (after you select SIP under “settings”),
and for those companies who require additional technical assistance, may
e-mail the Link2VoIP Support Team: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include
your full name, username, and a full explanation of the issue you’re having
with the switch over, and we’ll assist you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your cooperation.
The Link2VoIP Team
