A New Improved Approach to Communicate Better

By: Kristen

From ages immemorial we have been using different modes of communication for interacting with each other. From traditional PSTN to VoIP telephony at present the method of communication has changed drastically and definitely for the better. Keeping in mind that our needs have been constantly evolving over the years, VoIP call transmission services have come as a breather for many.

Let us take into consideration the difference between public switch telephony network and VoIP services to understand which one would be in a better state to fulfill your requirements.

PSTN services are substantially expensive as compared to voice over IP, more so the long distance and international calls. VoIP calls offer a much cheaper, almost 50% less, alternative to PSTN. On the other hand, the traditional telephony presents premium quality services to its users. Initially IP telephony could not stand up to the standard set up by PSTN. However after a number of improvements in the technology, it now stands at par with the older mode of communication.

Voice over IP transmission services offer an efficient way of networking via internet which eventually leads to an increase in overall productivity. VoIP integrates the various branches of an organization to provide seamless connectivity between them. PSTN on the other hand can though conjoin different branches; the call tariff is very high especially if branches are in different countries. VoIP on the other hand mostly offers this service for free.

VoIP also helps in unifying communication. There are various colleges and even business houses that use VoIP services like Skype for internal communication. The various features that come along with voice over IP services can not be ignored. Features like call waiting, call forwarding, follow me etc are a part of the package offered by some providers at no extra cost. Whereas traditional telephony either does not provide these services or charge a huge fee for them.

Mobility is another major benefit that comes along with voice over IP services. It allows for calls to be made and received from across the globe on your local number provided by the VoIP service provider. Now you can go for your business trips and take your business with you.

VoIP has thus become the preferred option for most in the corporate and residential sectors.
