  7. Q4 2020 Quarterly Newsletter From December 15, 2020 We wish you, your loved ones, and your colleagues a happy holiday season. We are very thankful for each and every one of you and hope you are staying healthy and safe. Here’s to 2021! Key Highlights From Q4 Back in October, we released a new app for anyone tired of screening potential spam, anonymous numbers, and other bothersome calls. In just a few clicks, the new Blacklists app will block unwanted calls before they ever ring your device. The app helps you manage unwanted calls and makes it easy to ensure only important calls are coming through. All you have to do is create a list and add the numbers you want to block. Then, you never need to worry about those numbers again! See just how easy it is here. In November we hosted another successful Product Focus Group. After getting an incredible amount of helpful feedback during our first ever focus group in October, we wanted to see if a second round would live up to the first, and boy did it ever! A huge thank you to everyone who participated and shared their thoughts. Because they are so helpful and engaging, we’ll be hosting monthly Product Focus Groups starting in January. We hope you’ll join us! Sign up for our Product Feedback Group here so you don’t miss the invite. We sponsored the Cavell Group’s Cloud Comms Summit European Series in December, which took us on a virtual trip to France, Germany, Benelux, and Spain. Each event explored key market insights, best practices, challenges and solutions in those areas. We’re always excited to be part of Cavell Group’s events, meet and mingle with industry colleagues (even if virtually), and learn from Cavell’s group of experts. We look forward to attending more of their events in 2021! In Case You Missed It It wouldn’t be a 2600Hz newsletter without some media and press updates. Here’s some news and a few marketing highlights from Q4: Our COO & Co-Founder Patrick Sullivan chatted about all things UC with UC Today publisher Rob Scott in this video interview. The Xarios team invited us to join them for an article about call center analytics called The Writing’s on the Wall — Call Center Analytics During Remote Work. UC Today wrote a few new articles featuring 2600Hz, including 2600Hz Staying Close — Even Though Remote Holidays, 2600Hz Has Evolved UC Automation in Four Major Ways, and 2600Hz and OneBill Partner on Integrated Revenue Management. The OneBill team joined us on the Free UC w/ 2600Hz podcast to talk about how streamlining your billing operations and revenue management can enhance your customer experience, and our very own Emily Ransford joined for an episode all about the 2600Hz Community. A Few Friendly Reminders Product Focus Groups — As mentioned earlier, we’ll be hosting monthly Product Focus Groups starting in January. We would love for you to join us!

    Happy Thanksgiving Holiday! Our offices will be closed Thursday and Friday, Nov. 26th and 27th.
  9. Thank you. It's good to know jonny5 can terminate calls in progress rather than wait for them to finish. The balance check seems to be "by request". Jonny5 has a responder to "j5_balance_check_req". It answers to some request on a higher api for "balance_check_req". This request seems to come from worker in ecallmgr (ecallmgr_balance_crawler_worker) that issues the balance_check_req via an internal "send_req" function. There's a disconnect_accounts function called in case of a need to disconnect. Here's an extract from the worker. -define(INTERACCOUNT_DELAY_MS, kapps_config:get_integer(?APP_NAME, <<"balance_crawler_interaccount_delay_ms">>, 10)). -define(FETCH_TIMEOUT_MS, kapps_config:get_integer(?APP_NAME, <<"balance_crawler_fetch_timeout_ms">>, 10000)). -spec start() -> no_return(). start() -> case ecallmgr_fs_channels:per_minute_accounts() of [] -> exit('no_accounts'); Accounts -> lager:debug("get balance for ~p account(s)", [length(Accounts)]), DisconnectAccounts = send_req(Accounts), 'ok' = disconnect_accounts(DisconnectAccounts), exit('work_done') end. If I read this correctly, all accounts are checked continuously, with a 10ms delay between accounts and a 10 seconds timeout on each request for the balance. Do I understand correctly, or am I missing something ? PS: It seems interaccount delay and timeout are read from the ecallmgr config. However the 10ms delay seems to apply to the disconnect function of calls and not to the cheking of balance which seems continuous (without delays). Anyone can confirm this?
  10. @kazte, yes, what you are after is possible. You can have pre-paid or post-paid accounts. You can apply a limit to post-paid accounts too. In the event an account exceeds its limit, it will terminate calls. You simply need to set an account to be pre-post paid and set the limit. You also need to ensure the Jonny5 app is running. By default, limits are per-month (though you could use the API to "top up" an account or change its limit on a more frequent interval). Limits apply to resellers also. When an account underneath a reseller account makes a call, the reseller account is also charged for that call. Likewise the root/superadmin account by default is also charged for the resellers calls (charges all the way up the chain). Each account may be charged a different rate (based on their ratedeck). You can choose NOT to charge a specific account (useful for the root/superadmin account) by using "flat rate trunks". Ratedecks can be at the system, reseller or account level. Hotornot is the app in charge of figuring out how much to charge for a call (it does the call rating) Jonny5 enforces the limits (it does limiting). I personally do not know how often Jonny5 checks limits/credit.
  11. It's been 18 months but I haven't dropped my hopes for putting kazoo in production ;) Hopefully I can understand erlang a little better this time and ask not so simple questions. I'm based in Europe in a non English speaking country with a different currency than the dollar and different market expectations, so I'm facing somewhat of a steep ride. My major concern is fraud prevention and spending control for all accounts. TL;DR: I'd like to understand if it's possible to terminate all calls for an account when some condition occurs (tipically low-credit event), in the middle of a call or multiple calls. Here's my current handling of limits, fraud prevention and rating:. I have Upstream providers (telco) and downstream Resellers and End users. I understand kazoo can accommodate hierarchies of accounts, but I'm not sure how they're checked on a live call and what happens exactly when a limit is breached. Here's the description of the credit based part of the fraud control: The main account can only consume X amount of credit (euro) per day/week/month, using it's own Rates (tied to the variable upstream provider). The reseller can only consume X amount of money, (euro, pounds, other) per day/week/month using transfer rates from the main account. There's a new "ratedeck?" for each reseller. In turn, the end user can only consume X amount of money as the reseller, but based on their own ratedeck. The fraud control at the moment works like this: Each time interval (one or few seconds) we calculate the current total due for all running calls for each account (main, reseller, end user) and compare that to their allowance (per total credit or day/week/month). When we determine that the account is over it's allowance, *ALL* calls for the account are terminated in an instant. Usually this means the credit for the account is 0 or below it's threshold. New calls will usually not be allowed as the credit is 0. I see jonny5 has some provisions for credit checking, for prepaid/postpaid accounts but I'm not sure how often it is called and if it's called for all accounts involved (or at least for all reseller/end user accounts) on each call. Also how does hotornot fit in the whole picture? I hope I'm not overcomplicating things here. Thank you
  12. I recommend - Transfer + *666 = Add number that called you to Black List.... Of course, it MIGHT be helpful to select a Customer requested extension, versus a "Static- Feature Code"!! My 2cents. esoare
  13. Hello, I like the new interface/app you created for this. It will make it easier to train and does not require advanced call flow access. Some feedback: It would be nice if we could specify or enable a feature code for people to automatically add the last received call to a default blacklist.
  14. Hi @Alisa Can we install it on a community self-hosted version? If so, can you please explain how? Thanks in advance Yazan

Voicemail Transcription — This feature helps users stay connected by converting voicemails to text. Transcriptions can be emailed or viewed in the Voicemails section of Comm.io. The feature is powered by Google’s ARS system, so it has phenomenal accuracy. There is a fee for using this feature ($0.05 per minute) so it is off by default for all existing voicemail boxes. New voicemail boxes currently have the feature enabled (although we're going to be changing it to be off by default in the next update) so if you don't want to use it, you'll need to disable it. It’s easy to enable or disable — watch how to do it here! Announce-Only Voicemail Box — Perfect for closures and other informational messages, announce-only voicemail box enables a voicemail box to play a recorded message without allowing callers to leave a voicemail. This feature can be enabled and messages can be easily changed at any time in the Voicemail Boxes section of SmartPBX by going to Advanced, then Options. Hold Music Resume — Hold music no longer restarts at the beginning every time you put a caller on hold! This is ideal for custom/sales messages because callers will now hear a continuation of the message, instead of it restarting at the beginning every time the caller is placed on hold.

  23. @Pargat sounds like, unfortunately, a lot of spam and malicious traffic originates from various countries; operations has blocked large swaths of IP blocks to combat it and you appear to have been caught up in that. We're working on getting a mirrored host up so that folks like you can access the repos without needing to resort to a proxy or VPN. More to come!
  24. I got it working by using a proxy located in Europe!! Looks like the ISP has blocked it!!
  25. Not aware of any restrictions (asking around). Can you try fetching that URL with wget or cURL and see what they say?
  26. I am in India and repo was working till a few days ago!! Why would it be blocked?
  27. I think repo is blocked for your IP or country. Try to change internet and see. I faced this issue and fixed by changing to UK ip.
