Ashe`
dbtid: I said I'm at work, not that I'm working
spale
so
that migration is finally over ;)
Ashe`
Mine? Nah
January
spale
what are you /trying/ to migrate?
Ashe`
Few millions customers
spale
I just had to move some fiber customers from old to new router (not physically).. took me 2 hours will all the checks..
ah, lol ;)
right, you're on voice ?
Ashe`
IN
spale
;-)
Ashe`
Anyway it could be done today, just the customer wants to wait till january
So for now it's for "Telstra friends"
And from the look of it so far they have 75 000 friends
I wish I had one
Oh well
         

spale
so you're bored until then?
Ashe`
Nah, I have plenty of other markets to take care of
spale
what are you looking for?
Ashe`
Hm?
spale
I mean, in short, what's your job
Ashe`
Told you, IN
I'm not looking for it, I'm developping it

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligent_network
For the lazy ones
spale
ahh I.N., ok, got it
ohhh there is finally dynamic routing ;)
Ashe`
Hm?
Dynamic routing of what?
spale
numbers
the whole mess with number portability
Ashe`
That's just government/company agreements, doesn't have much to do with the networks
spale
the networks still have to route them
Ashe`
They've always been able to route them
spale
with more specific routes you mean?
but that's done in signaling (SS7) right? the data call always take the right path ?
Ashe`
Yeah, ss7 or sigtran
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Title <= for number portability
spale
ok
for example, we have 3 mobile operators here. each with a different 'default' prefix 076 078 and 079
so when I make a call to a 079 ported on the 078 network, my signaling will go to the 079 which will return me some 'translation' and this translation tells me to go to the 078 network.
am I moreless right?
Ashe`
Yup
And if you move from 078 to 076, 078's ocmpany will have to tell 079's company to forward it to 076
spale
so avoid multiple redirects, yep. makes sense
In switzerland we have a neural company that is managing the 'ported numbers database'
Ashe`
MNP?
Or whatever they're actually called
MNP is probably the service
spale
I dont recall the company name..
I'm not a 'voice' guy ;)
Ashe`
I'm not either
         

spale
we do some voice, but most of the business is outsourced due to the low volume.
perhaps we will do a bit more when we will have enough customers.
we're an ISP operating Cable networks.
Ashe`
You probably wouldn't have an IN platform even then
spale
I'd run OpenSS7 but former monopoly operator will probably kick my ass :P
Ashe`
Like that'd be enough :p
spale
I think the next step for us would be to do the whole SIP/MGCP routing with voice mail and so on and getting a SIP service from a large carrier.
I mean a professional SIP service ;)
Ashe`
Most companies connect to the big one, in just about every country
There are rarely more than 2-3 major companies
spale
we're a small country ;)
Ashe`
In Belgium there are 3 major companies ;)
spale
We have 2 large ones, and 1 which could be considered large, but does only mobile.
those 3 have their own mobile cells. all the others are just "OEM" mobile operators ;)
Ashe`
I only manage mobile ones, fixed has been "outsourced" to France
Even if we're still developing it
For fixed
But support/management is done in France
spale
the nice thing with Cable is that you bypass the copper net.
we dont do any benefit on voice minutes, only on the monthy fees.
Ashe`
Only one I can remembver in .ch is Cablecom
Too lazy to check the list
spale
yes
cablecom is no 1 in cable networks
we're no 2
Ashe`
(maybe it's the only one we have anyway)
Well, they have an IN platform, you don't, that's why!
:p
spale
but cablecam has like 500'000 cable internet customers..
and we have 15'000
but this company is a whole mess since they have been aquired by Libery Global (UPC)
and some of their cable partners want to move to us now ;)
and you can imagine how difficult such a migration with voice users can be..
Ashe`
As long as they give us millions every year, who cares :D
spale
especially if cablecom doesnt want to cooperate.
yeah, sure ;)
Ashe`
+ we don't do cable ISPs, only DSL
(for Internet, that is, not for phone)
spale
ok
which company are you working for if I may ask?
Ashe`
Alcatel
spale
ah haa :P
you're the ones who crashed the swisscom mobile net... :P
I dont recall in which year it was, perhaps 2000 or 2001
Ashe`
Oh I was not there then
spale
the whole net went b00m for like 12 hours
Ashe`
And since I don't remember hearing about it
They probably switched to Siemens
Or Nokia
:D
spale
nah
it was not directly alcatel's fault
Ashe`
It rarely is
I had a problem like that in Canada cause the customer decided to reboot its cluster network
spale
alcatel knew there was a bug in their soft, and had a planned maintenance to upgrade the switch
unfortunatly, the switch crashed 2 days before the maintenance.
Ashe`
Ah it was in the switching, then it's definitely not me
spale
the only alcatel product I know is a PBX... 4400 or something...
Ashe`
Now you knwo a new one: Alcatel OSP
spale
;)
skizo
MOV EAX,DWORD PTR DS:[596B3C]
what this mean?
Ashe`
To put what's over there in eax
skizo
ok
596B3C = address memory ?
Ashe`
And DS = data segment
skizo
k thanks :)
what is the api to check the filesize?
Ashe`
In Windows?
DontKickMe
does Newer boards have EFI built-in?
Ashe`
Apple ones have it
Or at leas tthe ones apple buys
DontKickMe
I don't remember well but I readed that some boards for Intel have EFI but it's disabled
Ashe`
Could be, but probably server ones
DontKickMe
I this case each device has his own firmware
This arch would be wonderful for someone that develop a homebrew OS
BoR0
damn, my cat pressed on a wrong button ;P
Int3
