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).
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....

Just a quick one to say that when you think you need Asterisk
for a customer request
, sometimes you don't!!
A question from a customer yesterday:
Do you know of an IP desk telephone that can be used on a
hotline/autodial/PLAR type basis? Ie pick up one phone and the other
Tricky bit... no call manager of any sort in-between... just the
direct on the network.
to the rescue!!! Any of the new 67XXi ranges have a feature either per line or globally like so:
Simply add an IP address in the Autodial Number
field for line 1 and when you pick up the handset it dials the other phone on that IP directly
. No need to put Asterisk
in between or any other system, other than pure IP.
P.S. I'm sure most of the business grade IP phones out there can do the same.

been using the pikawarp
for quite a while now in its CTI appliance function
for our On-Hold marking
product. However, it can also function as an Asterisk appliance
We all know how powerful Asterisk
is, but without an easy GUI like FreePBX
it is hard for end users. That's where FreePBX on the warp
comes in. It's fast, has all the usual features and even records calls as long as you have a decent size flash card. Oh, and it can fax too!!
For the price
, customisation ability
and to have FreePBX
and not the core Asterisk GUI it is a massive win for Pika

All that is left is to switch to LDAP[?]

and res_config_ldap Asterisk plugin
