Subject: [WISPA] StarOS and VOIP


I thought I might pass on a piece of information I recently found out 
about StarOS networks.  

At the StarOS training session last month, they mentioned that the newer 
Version3 firmware automatically prioritizes VOIP traffic as long as the 
correct TOS bit is set.   That made it a lot easier to prioritize our 
VOIP traffic, as all we had to do was upgrade the firmware on our 
backhauls.  

This works on the CPE units as well.   I recently installed a WAR1 
StarOS CPE unit with V3 firmware on it at my house to see how it would 
work.   Last night, I was on the VOIP phone with Mac Dearman for about 
45 minutes and it seemed to really be working well.   I didn't have any 
dropouts and the audio quality was excellent - as good as our landline. 
   I  was fairly impressed with how well it works.

The real shock came when I turned on the computer hooked up to my TV and 
realized that I had 2meg worth of Bit Torrent connections going on at 
the same time as our phone conversation!   In the past, BT has turned 
VOIP into mush, but apparently the StarOS guys have figured out how to 
prioritize that traffic and keep it working very well.  

Damn impressive guys - keep up the good work!
