Elegir un Servidor

VoIP.ms ofrece 13 diferentes servidores, pero cual es el que debe elegir? Es común pensar que se debe elegir el servidor mas cercano a su localidad, sin embargo esto no es necesario en la mayoría de las veces. Si usted está en USA, cualquier servidor en US le debe dar un buen resultado en tiempos y calidad. También es de utilidad saber que hay una herramienta que le puede ayudar a seleccionar el mejor servidor a usar, este normalmente se llama "ping", el cual le provee la latencia entre usted y el servidor, así usted debe utilizar el servidor que le provea una menor latencia.

Los servidores marcados como (NUEVO) están usando la versión mas reciente de software, por lo tanto también le recomendamos usar cualquiera de ellos.

Atlanta, GA: atlanta.voip.ms (NUEVO)
Chicago, IL: chicago.voip.ms (NUEVO) 
Dallas, TX: dallas.voip.ms 
Houston, TX: houston.voip.ms 
Los Angeles, CA: losangeles.voip.ms 
New York, NY: newyork.voip.ms 
Seattle, WA: seattle.voip.ms (NUEVO)
Tampa, FL: tampa.voip.ms (NUEVO)
Montreal 2,QC: montreal2.voip.ms 
Toronto 2, ON: toronto2.voip.ms 
Montreal,QC: montreal.voip.ms 
Toronto, ON: toronto.voip.ms 
London, UK: london.voip.ms

Qué es un Ping?

Ping it is a standard tool, used to test network connections. Mostly used to determine if a server or device can be reached across the network and the latency of the response.(the time it takes to send a packet to the destination and for it to return to your computer)

Ping tools are part of Windows, Mac OS X and Linux as well as some routers.

How does the ping work?

It sends request messages to a target network address or DNS names at periodic intervals and measure the time it takes for a response message to arrive and return.(better known as latency).

How to send a ping?

If pings results are not consistent, you may have an issue with Jitter, you can work around with this issue by adjusting the "Network Jitter Level" setting on your VoIP device. Usually a ping of under 150 ms is recommended in order to have good quality. The latency time to the server is important however there are also other factors that could affect the quality of the calls such as packet loss (VoIP communications are very sensitive to this), and the jitter level of your Internet connection.

The following is the output of running ping with the target losangeles.voip.ms.

#ping losangeles.voip.ms
Ping to losangeles.voip.ms [] with 32 bytes de datos:
Response from bytes=32 time=67ms TTL=52
Response from bytes=32 time=69ms TTL=52
Response from bytes=32 time=68ms TTL=52
Response from bytes=32 time=67ms TTL=52
ping statistics from
4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet lost. rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 67ms, 69ms, 67ms

Latency and its importance

Latency is very important for Voip, this will determine the time that will take for the data package transmission to reach the destination. A high latency will lead to a delay and echoes in the communication.

Latency is measured in milliseconds (ms) For example: a latency of 150ms is barely noticeable so is acceptable. Higher than that, quality starts to suffer. When it gets higher than 300 ms, it becomes unacceptable.
