How It Works
Features And Benefits
Alerting and Control
Get notified via email of link downtime and when a failover event occurs, users
can adjust their load balancing and failover strategies at will.
The Cloud-based monitoring platform allows users to view their access links’ performance in real time.
Prioritise bandwidth usage for specific links to ensure more efficient bandwidth utilisation.
Voice quality improves by means of Forward Error Correction (FEC). This is only relevant to Vox Voice Enhancements.
SD-WAN CPE devices are plugged in and automatically configured based on
desired fail over policies.
Automatic link fail over to improve uptime.
Frequently Asked Questions
No, not at this stage. We are considering MPLS support to be integrated in a future release.
Yes, the compromise for FEC is roughly 50% more bandwidth being used per voice call. For G.729 codec, bandwidth increases from 30Kbps to 45Kbps per call, and for G.711 the increase is from 80Kbps to 120 Kbps per call.
Yes, however this will only apply to the ‘primary’ WAN link. If this link goes down, unfortunately, a new public IP is being used, thus port forwarding will not work – until the link comes back up.
No. All WAN links will still require their own respective routers to be installed, e.g. Mikrotik RB750 for Fibre, Mikrotik wAP for LTE connections, etc. These devices are then connected to the SD-WAN appliance via their respective LAN interfaces.
No, unfortunately network conditions out of our control mean that dropped calls can and will happen. We are only able to optimise voice traffic over the ‘last mile’ and into the Vox network itself. Once a call traverses an interconnect partner’s network, we will be subject to the conditions on that network.
No, voice optimisation can only be done on Vox voice products as stipulated in this document.
