Nomorobo now lists Cox as a carrier for their service. However, I subsequently signed up for Nomorobo only to find out that simultaneous ring is only available in a few select Cox markets. Any idea when simultaneous ring will be available in the Hampton Roads, VA market? Thanks.
My reason for saying "modem inband" was to signal to you my understanding of the topology and instead focus on the issue of implemenation and cutover timetables. How much of what you just said from the standpoint of rollout is based on speculaion vs actual fact?
Cox, a decades old, multi-billion dollar ISP, knows its network topology right down to the demarc at the customer prem. Therefore, in a nutshell, the actual timetable for rollout is based on design, testing, commitment, acquisition and implementation. By now, Cox should have a working migration timetable. However, instead of sharing the actual timetable, we get these vague notices of "We're coming". Well, so is Spring, eventually.
You do know I am just a user like you right? BTW, what does "modem inband" mean? Do you mean embedded like the E in eMTA?
Time tables change. I was told one time table and I mentioned it to others. Turned out it was a few months late and the person got upset. It taught me never to quote a timeframe, so I can only imagine Cox's position.
You appear to be passing along an educated guess as actual fact. It's confusing to me when you don't specify which it is; speculation vs fact. Modem inband was two words I simply threw together in an analogous manner to distinguish between the users who have the old NIU configuration and those whose phone service goes through the eMTA modem. Inband is a term I borrowed from signaling schemes whereby in-band signaling travels on the same medium as the information, while out-of-band signaling travels outside of the medium used for transmission of the actual information. In this case, the eMTA carries both voice and data. I can only surmise that if users on the old configuration are using a different carrier frequency on the Cox broadband, then Cox will be able to reclaim that bandwidth once everyone is moved over to the eMTA configuration.
