The view from my window is all white #uksnow #voip

By: Trefor Davies | Thursday, 2 December, 2010

With snow being today’s theme I thought I’d stick some pictures up.  The header photo (click to enlarge) is the view from my upstairs landing window into our back garden.  The kids were off yesterday and trashed the pristine snow.

Newark Telephone Exchange Loss of Service

By: Trefor Davies | Wednesday, 22 April, 2009

The Newark telephone exchange suffered an outage today and quite a number of analog lines and ADSLs were down as a result. Fortunately Timico has a network strategy that incorporates multiple types of connectivity specifically to provide resilience when outages like this happen.

This might have raised a laugh but in actual fact wasn’t very helpful as he kept the fixes to himself and engineers around him did not learn from him.   That...

Multi-Site Broadband VPN Deployments

By: Trefor Davies | Wednesday, 4 June, 2008

A PWAN employs Virtual Route Forwarding to offer complete security over a shared MPLS backbone.   The beauty of this approach is that you don’t need expensive MPLS connections – an ADSL line will do which can be a very...

SIP trunks as part of a DR plan

By: Trefor Davies | Monday, 2 June, 2008

DR is a hot topic these days as more and more firms rely on data that is not stored as hard copy. Virtual Servers are a great way of implementing a DR strategy for a business.   Another area that is gaining ground is in the use of SIP Trunks as part of a DR plan. Rather than completely...
