VOIP, The Front Runner of Business Grade Voice

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has become the most revolutionary advancement in telecommunications and has proven to be the utmost dynamic use of TCP/IP.Considerable admonitions for superior quality:1. Private VoIP Network- Quality of Service (QoS) cannot be guaranteed unless voice traffic is distributed to the Publicly Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) via a private VoIP network.2. Low Latency- Within a private VoIP network latency is measured in milliseconds. Low latency can account for faster packet resolution, while also eliminating jitter and echoes.3. Static Bandwidth- Operating VoIP traffic over a guaranteed and dedicate bandwidth will ensure successful distribution of Voice packets.4. Available Peak Transmission Capacity- When assessing service quality, it is important to calculate the level of oversubscription. The number of manageable users must be greater than actual users.The establishment of VoIP has paved the road in the pursuit to integrate managed voice and data services. As the functionality of this service increases so does the market in which they can operate. Many robust IP based services have been manipulated to easily interface in any office to optimize workplace efficiency with ease of software management and the ability to run your business from virtually anywhere. The technology available with an integrated access device (IAD) which uses soft switch technology allows any office to integrate their current phone system and LAN network to interface with a VoIP service provider.Switching from a traditional analog service to a VoIP provider has become legitimate for business owners who cannot afford to loose the lifeline of their business. The Federal Communications Commission has enacted laws to protect the consumer’s right to Local Number Portability (LNP) which allows the end user the ability to change to a VoIP provider without being required to change their billing telephone number(s). The responsibility lies in the hands of the former carrier to route the old number to the new service provider.With the continuous improvements to VoIP functionality, simplistic integration with data services, and the minimal impact on infrastructure usage; VoIP has earned its spot as the most powerful tool for business to maximize their return on investment when it comes to voice and data.
