Re: [Northeast] Fios-8x8

AFAIK, DV is on a different wavelength than your Internet service.

Nope. They share the same wavelengths.
• 1310 nm voice/data transmit
• 1490 nm voice/data receive
• 1550 nm video receive

Yea...my bad. Thanks for that. I really meant to say that it's a different "network", as it were...

The way it was explained in the past was your ONT uses your regular bandwidth for DV and sends this to the FiOS gateway in your CO via regular VoIP which then picks up the VoIP transmissions from your ONT and dumps them off on your COs POTS switch. How that's different from how your ONT handles the standard POTS freedom essentials is beyond me, maybe they hand off to different POTS switches for the different services?

DV is also superior to vonage and other voip services in that you don't have to go across the internet for your voip service, it unloads on the first hop at your gateway, which can be beneficial if you fax or still use a modem for anything.

Using someone like Vonage for fax or modem is like a crap shoot if it'll work or not.

From what I understand what you describe is Freedom Essentials.. They just change the medium of how it gets between the CO and your house. With Digital Voice the SIP traffic is routed to a main datacenter where they use softswitches and media gateways instead of the older TDM telco CO switches.

In the end they're essentially the same, just different as how its processed.

Yeah, well...I've never been able to get my wife's fax machine to work properly on DV. I've spoken to FiOS, I've spoken to HP (manufacturer of the unit), I've sought assistance on multiple discussion groups. Nothing. It still won't properly receive incoming faxes.

Our Columbia MD office has 8x8 VOIP and Verizon FIOS. We have 4 more offices around the country who don't use FIOS. Our Maryland office has had extreme service disruption for the last 10 days. On 4 of 5 calls there will be no audio on our end on inbound or outbound calls; the other person can hear us. Randomly it works again.

None of our other offices are experiencing this problem. Therefore it is not 8x8.

We have had 8x8 & Fios for almost 2 years and this is the first time we have had a serious issue.

I can upgrade the ActionTec firmware and reset to factory defaults, but if anyone has any proven solution or knows that Verizon is working on this, it would be appreciated.

The bottom line is that once your call is routed through the gateway and past the first class 5 switch, FE and DV calls are handled the same way. DV is simply VZ's method or loophole to avoid regulation by your state's public utility commission.

Vz is aware of the issue you are describing. You will need to do leg work with your voip provider and get some tracert logs and then escalate to verizon tier 2
