Business VoIP

Business VoIP

The acronym VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It is the new generation of making phone calls, all over the world. Of course it has already reached the business sector also, and the variety of the possibilities are endless.

VoIP can facilitate tasks, that may be more difficult to achieve using a traditional network. You can take your VoIP phone with you on a business trip and wherever you can connect to the Internet you can receive incoming calls. Call center agents using VoIP phones can work from anywhere with a sufficiently fast and stable Internet connection, speaking a bit more economically you can say that this could mean a drop in costs, as call centers can be outsourced to India for example.

VoIP phones can integrate with other services available on the Internet, including video conversations, message or data file exchanges in parallel with the conversation, audio conferencing, managing address books, and passing information about whether others are available online and so on.

three main services of the service providers basically are: simple VoIP, the Video/ IPTV, and the Data/wireless. Video products in high demand include IPTV billing and content management servers, IPTV set-top-boxes, headed encoders, and video streaming servers. Popular wireless products are: SysMaster's WiFi billing and management server and WiFi access point. There are a huge variety of products and equipment for each type of service. They recommend complete Digital Media Centers, IPTVswitch servers, combo switch media concentrators for video conversation. Everything depends just on your needs, and on the money you are willing to invest to ease the communications in your business life.

One drawback is the difficulty in sending faxes due to software and networking constraints in most home systems. An effort is underway to remedy this by the defining of an alternate IP-based solution for delivering Fax-over-IP namely the T38 Protocol. Another disadvantage can be the Internet connection of course. The quality and overall reliability of the phone connection is entirely reliant upon the quality, reliability, and speed of the Internet connection, which it is using. Shortcomings of internet connections and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can affect VoIP calls. Higher overall network latencies can lead to audibly reduced call quality and can cause many problems, such as echoing.

Also, all VoIP hardware uses broadband modems and other equipment powered by electricity, which may be subject to outages dictating the use of an interruptible power supply or generator to ensure availability during power outages. Early adopters of VoIP may also be users of other phone equipment, such as PBX and cordless phone bases, that rely on power not provided by the telephone company. An interrupt in the middle of a business meeting can be really bothersome. This is only a setback to new businesses though, as established companies have likely invested in secondary power sources and uninterruptible power supplies

Basically VOIP it is a really huge improvement in business life because it cuts the costs of communications so much, it is almost laughable. We went to thousands of dollars every month, to a thousand dollars worth of initial investment and then $0 every month.
