Re: [Voip.ms] Survey / Feedback on restructuring Geo Locations.

Hate to see Chicago off the list. A lot of people have VPS's colo'd in Chi-town (popular location and cheap!) and the 2 ms hop is kind of awesome.
I happen to be a believer in the "low ping" church, be it reality or just superstition.
One thing I would like to see is automagic failover if a POP shits the bed.

I vote for that idea.
I am quite happy with the services and as far as super nodes I am ok with it.... Though I am very happy with the Houston POP and I wouldn't like to change from there :P

Am actually not in favor of super POPs at all.

• Prefer the flexibility offered by current topology.

• We have a relatively simple script run from cron on our asterisk box that essentially parses "asterisk -rx 'iax2 show registry'" with appropriate delays/retries.

• If necessary, Using Voip.ms API this allows automatic fail over under our control.

• We used to have a great route to Seattle. As of 10/24/12 it's been very "flakey" for lack of a better term. I'm afraid we'll get "load balanced" on to a bad route autonomously.


A couple questions that come to mind if you did implement this.

• Could you provide in advance all possible IP's that will be "SRV'ed" up? Only reason I ask is it would fit our existing firewall policy nicely. Actually switching to IAX from SIP has helped however Voip.ms is not our only provider. SIP/RTP along with a couple other RTP "like things" that we use have made firewalling tricky.

• I'm assuming RTP would still be proxy'ed as it is today?

OooO my..... You just reminded me the night mare I went through with CC and their DNS SRV and having to guess the blocks and IP's

I hope that if voip.ms does go that route that they are open to share that information via ticket for their customers.

If not than... I vote No to the DNS SRV idea.
