  20. Vodafone Voice VPN Solutions

  21. What is a Voice VPN? • A connection or virtual connection to from a PBX to the Vodafone network allowing company mobiles to become part of the office (fixed) dial plan, use short code dialling and benefit from a preferential ‘on-net’ rate. • On-net dialling within the ‘Closed User Group’ (CUG) from: Mobile ~ Office Office ~ Mobile Mobile ~ Mobile • Significant reduction in both mobile and office call spends

  22. How Does if Work? • A ‘Closed User Group’ (CUG) database is created on the Vodafone network containing company mobile and landline numbers. • Once created, all calls between numbers in the CUG are flagged as ‘on-net’ and billed at the preferential on-net rate. • The user experience does not change unless you chose to offer the option of mobile short dials or (mobile to mobile and office to mobile) or DDI dialling (mobile to office DDI).

  23. Virtual Fixed Link (VFL)

  24. Other UK Site Other UK Site Vodafone Other UK Site HQ Site Other UK Site BT Vodafone Closed User Group The ‘Closed User Group’ is created on the Vodafone network containing mobile and site telephone numbers. Mobile originated calls to other company mobiles or to VPN sites are now ‘on-net’ Sites that wish to be included in the VPN must have BT lines and a programmable PBX. The PBX must be configured to insert the access code prefix 16677 before all calls to be routed to Vodafone In a non-VPN environment calls pass between mobile users and landline users and are billed by the appropriate provider Vodafone Voice VPN

  25. Managed Fixed Link

  26. Vodafone Voice VPN • Addition of UK sites simply requires the new landline numbers to be added to the CUG (on the Vodafone network) and a piece of on-site PBX routing work to be carried out by the PBX maintainer • Virtual Fixed Link was launched in early 2004 and many of Vodafones largest customers are now benefiting from the VFL service with no major issues to date • Short dials and DDI dial-in are available using VFL as with the fixed link MVPN service • Seamless rollout – NO user impact

  27. Benefits • On-net rate applied to all calls within the Closed User Group (CUG) i.e. mobile ~ mobile, mobile ~ office and office ~ mobile. • Shorts dials can be associated with mobile numbers if desired (optional). • Mobile users can dial direct to office DDI’s if desired (optional). • Allows multiple sites to be part of the same VPN without the need for expensive fixed link infrastructure at every site. • No user education required. The user experience remains the same.

  28. Next Steps • Complete the order form • Supply a list of all landline numbers (by site) that are to be included in the VPN. These must be BT lines if you wish to route outbound calls to VFL. Non-BT numbers can be included but will benefit for inbound calls only. • Supply ‘Proof of Ownership’ for all landline numbers to be included, either: • Landline bill • Disc Bill • E-mail from landline supplier stating that all listed numbers are effectively owned by your organisation.
