QoS setting VS*98 and *99

Bobby (Ooma Admin):

I sent you this msg first via Forum e-mail then an enhanced version of the msg via regular e-mail. Did not get any response. I’m sure you are hit with lots of questions. I gather you prefer when I use the Forum. This might help others and you from them asking the same question?

WOULD APPRECIATE ANYONE WHO KNOWS THE ANSWERS [FOR SURE] TO RESPOND TO EACH. Tnx!

Ref: https://www.ooma.com/app/support/configuring-quality-service

The following question are asked to learn if I can effectively set *98 by changing the QoS bandwidth if and when I want to and not involve Ooma Customer Support.

  1. What is the factory default QoS bandwidth value in the Telo 2?
  2. Does *98 (or *99) set a different Q0S (Upstream / Downstream) value?
  3. What is the downside to making *98 permanent?
    My cable D/L is 20MB, U/L is 2MB.
  4. If *98 (or *99) do not relate or change QoS, does it change anything accessible to the user? If yes what and how to do it?

I’ll bet many users would enjoy reading accurate/detailed responses to each question.

Here’s hoping…

  1. upstream 512k, downstream disabled
  2. no, it changes codec on outbound calls from iLBC to G.711 (PCMU)
  3. increased bandwidth possibly leading to packet loss, Pure Voice less efficient with bigger payload
