1: How do I test the latency to your servers?
You are welcome to ping our servers, but because our SIP trunking gateways (currently located in Boca Raton, FL, and Dallas, TX) are SIP messaging engines only, latency is not an issue. Our engines only process a few thousand bytes of information per call. Unless we forcibly proxy media (at your request or the request of law enforcement), we release all media of the telephone call to your server and the closest media gateway of our underlying carrier. Thus, there is no need to be ‘closer’ to our gateways or worry about the latency of our servers. The messaging path consists of call setup and teardown with an occasional re-invite.
However, if you still wish to test the latency, you can ping gw-a.BIPmedia.com and gw-b.BIPmedia.com. For those wanting to use our SRV entry, please use gw.BIPmedia.com.
