Still Confused Whether to Deploy Voice Over Ip or Not?

By: Kristen

Technology has made a huge leap in terms of improvement over a period of years. Telecommunication industry too comes under this umbrella of consistent development. Gone are the day when your house or organisation would have numerous cable wires running from one room to another. With high speed Internet reaching ever nook and corner of the world, a relatively new technology has evolved as an alternative to your traditional telephony service namely Voice Over IP.

Voice over IP service is completely different from the traditional fixed line telephones in the way it operates. Unlike PSTN or public switch telephony network, VoIP utilises the service of Internet to transmit calls. However, a user of this service will dial and receive calls exactly the same way as he/she used to with PSTN. It offers an additional benefit of offering greater flexibility in terms of connecting to the world.

Besides using your old fixed line phone, you can also make voice over IP calls through your laptop or desktop computer, Internet connection being the prerequisite. In case you are using a fixed line telephone then you would also need an ATA which helps convert analog signals into small digital IP packets. In other words, it helps convert your voice in a format that would be understood by the computer.

A new method for utilising voice over IP call termination which though relatively new is fast raising the popularity charts is VoIP enabled phones or IP phones. They are handy just like your cellphone and so you can make and receive calls just like you would with your cell phone but at a much cheaper rate. Networking just became easier.

Quick Preview Of Advantages Of Voice Over IP termination

1. Minimum Call Cost - As mentioned earlier, voice over IP routes calls through Internet which enables calls be transferred at more than half the cost if you are calling a land line or a cell phone. If you are calling someone who is a customer of the same voice over IP service provider then your call would probably be completely free.
2. Quality Is Preserved - VoIP service maintains the quality while offering cheaper call termination rates. Lesser rates does not mean poor voice quality with voice over IP.
3. Billing Panel - Some premium Voice over IP providers provide CDR or call detail report by real time billing. This enables online billing solution, helps in monitoring accounts of your clients, easy recharge options et cetera. If you are a voice over IP reseller or wholesaler then this billing panel would prove to be greatly beneficial to you.
