Looks like all of them are coming in except critically low areas, but we'll use sub-allocations from our carriers for these areas.
We'll have around 98% UK coverage for numbers in the end. We haven't even finished applying or done 03/07/08/09 yet!
We also got our Communications Provider ID and Carrier-Pre-Select numbers.
Another quick update. We've just received notice of our first ever number allocations from Ofcom.
They are "Location Independent Electronic Comm Services" which are used for VoIP accounts and we have:
Our Communications Provider Identity ("CUPID
") code application has been processed by Ofcom and we just received our number of 291
The start of many good things to come with our own VoIP provider SureVoIP
(brand and website being worked on now). We're also listed as an ITSP at ITSPA
Just a quick note to say that our application to join the The Internet Telephony Services Providers’ Association
has been approved!
More about all this next month.
A quick note to say we will be attending UC Expo
- The UK's leading Business Enterprise Communications Event.
I know we've been very quiet this year, but there's a good reason for this. Keep your eyes pealed for a big announcement in the next few months about our new VoIP provider (Internet Telephony Service Provider) - SureVoIP
(redirects to main site for now).
My Yubikey arrived yesterday
and I was keen to check out the apps already enabled for it
, but it was better just using Google.
A search for Yubikey Drupal found the Drupal Yubikey plugin
. So I dropped that into one of the main Suretec websites
, got my Yubico API Key
for the plugin config and now I can log in with a password plus the key (or just the one-time-password from teh Yubikey is I so desire)!
I love the usb keyboard that just pastes the OTP key into whereever your cursor is. But what happens if you loose your key and vital services are enabled with Yubikey I wonder?
It's taken us a while to get round to ordering one of these Yubikeys
, but they do look great and have lots of documentation via the wiki
We're going to be testing them via the pam module for SSH access
(and of course using pam_ldap).
So, users in LDAP[?]
via pam, and a Yubikey
, let's see how it goes!
(will be interesting for logging in a SIP handset via Asterisk
that needs one too and all the others technologies Suretec
use and support
, Squid and more....
). We'll see....

Aberdeen-based Suretec Telecom
is in the business of supporting a company that makes holiday dreams come true. Specialising in tailor-made holidays, luxury hotels, unique tours and cruises, DreamTicket
luxury holidays is a niche holiday provider to the UK travel market, and it prides itself on operating cost-effectively without ‘middle-men’ so it can keep its prices keen. And it’s based in Surrey.
Suretec Telecom knows how important it is for small and medium-sized businesses to be cost-conscious, and it makes sure that its customers get high tech solutions to telecom questions, at a very competitive price.
‘Dreamticket is a very successful niche holiday business,’ says Gavin Henry, managing director of Suretec Telecom, which was launched in 2009. ‘It grew considerably from its early beginnings to around 11 employees in 2004 – and its telephone system is its lifeblood for providing customers with the right holiday to satisfy their dreams. That’s where we come in.’

We founded the TechMeetup because there is an abundance of events for entrepreneurs to meet investors and lawyers, and next to nothing for techies and tech. Considering the wealth of tech talent around (yes you), why haven’t we made the effort before to get to know everyone – see what else everyone is working on – get help on our projects from others – and talk about some of the cool stuff we’re doing – web apps, software, mobile apps, hardware, games…
I'll be there at the Aberdeen Techmeetup
