The point is that corporate users are finding it beneficial to replace traditional phone systems with VoIP carriers and solutions. However, before the deployment of the same, it becomes important that a proper research is initiated.

A potential corporate user can easily set up an account with the providers of these services. It can check out the prices, plans, features and other QoS issues before making a final decision on selecting a VoIP carrier. Certain selection criterion exist that should be taken into account before selecting a broadband service provider. Apart from pricing and customer service, the other two key features include ease of use and upstream and downstream bandwidth connection rate.

End user benefits of using these voice services are many. Users can stick to their existing phone numbers. Other key features that are a part of many such carrier service plans include call waiting, call routing, 3-way calling, teleconferencing, video-conferencing, instant messenger service, and dedicated fax lines. Certain plans are specifically designed for long distance callers. All these features have special significance for call center as well as contact center operations.

Different VoIP plans may vary between service providers; however, one thing is common.

An end user can use the services through personal computers or special VoIP phones. They could also combine their existing phone systems with telephone adapters to make internet enabled calls.
