The world has become a much smaller place - thanks to the innovative means of communications available at hand. With new developments in different spheres, geographical distances have been bridged and the barriers to conversation have been broken. One of the various technologies that has played a key role in all these - more so in recent times - has been Voice over Internet Protocol. As a matter of fact, VoIP carriers are facilitating the routing of calls over broadband internet networks in recent times - thereby making lives easier for quite a few people in different parts of the world.

In this context, it can be said that the demand for IP telephony services is on the increase. And both residential as well as corporate users are making the most of the applications of this high-end technology to cater to their specific needs. If individuals are using IP telephony to make low cost international calls, businesses are incorporating VoIP solutions to serve their customers in a better manner. Moreover, it has become lucrative for many small and medium business houses to try their hands as VoIP carriers and venture into this domain.

A forward looking organisation wanting to make the most of the emerging business opportunities can become a VoIP carrier - and that too without any trouble. The investments are not that much. Moreover, the profit margins could be quite significant.

The Voip gateway switches are available from Tier 1 VoIP carriers in lieu of monthly payments. Resellers and business houses can easily acquire these switches and offer voip carrier services to end-users and customers. Some points need to be kept in mind in the entire process.

1.Switches should be of premium quality

3.Technical support should be available on demand

Moreover, many a carrier of VoIP are offering innovative services such as call waiting, call forwarding, voice mails, conference calling, etc. - a fact that is making them all the more popular among end users and customers.
