New Feature - Maximum Channel Capacity Failover

We would like to notify you of the release of our Maximum Channel Capacity Failover Feature.

Some of you leverage VoIP.ms only for SIP Trunking with your PBX and do not wish to make use of our sub-accounts feature. Therefore, to allow you to have a better control of your call flow, you can now set a maximum channel capacity at the DID level.

For instance, you could have a hard limit of 25 inbound channels for a specific DID, but decide to put a failover to a voicemail as soon as the number of channels exceeds 10.

To start leveraging this feature, head over to your customer portal, “DID Numbers” then “Manage DID(s)”. Edit the DID of your choice, and click the “Failover” button at the top right of your screen. You will then see a new failover option called “Max. Capacity”. Simply click the “Enabled” checkbox, set the desired limit and select the failover destination. For more information, you may consult our Wiki article here.

Please note that while the default limit of inbound channels is set at 25 channels per DID, it can be raised upon request with no additional charges. To do so, please reach out to our support team through our live chat or through email at support@voip.ms

Thanks for being a VoIP.ms customer and we hope you will enjoy this new feature.

Happy Holidays from VoIP.ms

This year, we all faced a new paradigm that required us to flip our lives around in an overly rushed manner... one thing we all realized is how communications and mobility are key.

At VoIP.ms, we flipped operations around and started offering 24/7 support for all of you with very fast-paced migration projects. All of this so that you all get the best communication experience and don't lose contact with your friends, family and colleagues.

In order to allow VoIP.ms employees some time with their loved ones during this holiday season, please note that our offices will be closed on December 25th 2020 and January 1st 2021.

We will have support available until 1PM EST on December 24th and December 31st.

As usual, our engineers will remain on duty 24/7 monitoring our network. Dedicated staff will also be answering emergency support tickets during normal business hours.

On behalf of everyone at VoIP.ms, we would like to wish you peace, love, and joy this holiday season and throughout 2021.

Please, stay in home and stay safe.

We did not only put our focus on North America, but also started to review our international termination product offering in order to enhance call quality and overall completion rate.

New feature - Burstable Virtual PRI / Elastic SIP Trunking

VoIP.ms is now introducing Burstable Virtual PRI also known as Elastic SIP Trunking for greater flexibility!

For a while now, VoIP.ms has offered the possibility to have a Virtual PRI (VPRI) for unlimited inbound calls (non-metered) with as many concurrent calls (channels) as your business needs. Depending on your business needs, you may allow all your DIDs to share a pool of channels directly in your VPRI and the number of channels can be adjusted according to your needs. We also offer this service for several countries around the world.

The new burstable feature allows you to use more channels than your actual limit ensuring you to receive every call. We also implemented a hard limit that you may choose according to your needs.

To ease your understanding of this new feature, here is a quick example:

Say that you originally had a 50 channels VPRI with VoIP.ms, if at some point you received more than 50 calls at the same time, the caller would get a busy signal. To avoid this situation, with the addition of this new feature, you could decide to allow your VPRI to burst until 100 calls, and you would simply get charged a small premium for the additional channels used over your original limit.

Unlike most Burstable Virtual PRI product offering in the industry, we kept in mind our pay-as-you-go and hassle-free approach. Therefore, we charge on a pay-per-use model where if you use 10 extra channels only for 1 day in a given month, we won’t charge you the channels for the entire month, but rather only for this specific busy day.

As always, this feature is available to all our customers without any contract. For more information, you can read our Wiki article here.

Curious about getting a Burstable VPRI? Simply contact our team at sales@voip.ms and we will answer all your questions.

You already use our service and you want to switch to a Burstable VPRI? The transition is seamless. There is no downtime and no reconfiguration is required on your side.

Thanks for being a VoIP.ms customer and we hope you will enjoy our new feature.
