VoIP retrieves and moves to the cloud

Voice over IP technology is getting a makeover, and service providers hope that it will reform the sector. VoIP has entered the host Unified Communications - namely an integrated voice, instant messenger, e-mail, workflow applications and contracts.

Companies who are familiar with the concept of cloud computing has begun to recognize the benefits of converged mobile phones, office phones and computers as well as layoffs and cost savings achieved by allowing the company's voice and data live in a cloud, said Clark Peterson, President of Cloud Communications Alliance and CEO of Telesphere.

Provide a true hosted unified communications solution for small businesses have developed a method Alteva through their cloud-based voice and messaging services for Microsoft Communications product suite. Alteva new technology is also compatible with Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS). Alteva placing new UC solution for small and medium-sized business customers.

Cloud Communications Alliance is not just Voice over IP, hosted PBX and Unified Communications. Introducing a whole new way to construct, install and scale Enterprise Communications Systems, which offers HD voice services platform developed apps and features that allow companies to act in a way they never imagined, "says CEO Bill Alteva Bumbernick.

Companies providing VoIP service had begun to recognize a growing need for end-users connected to other service providers - a process called IP Peering, "she explained.

The common problems of corporate structures

One of the common problems of corporate structures, representatives of the common was how to come up with a coherent approach to education. Not all VoIP providers have the same level of features and functionality, "said Haynes.

Cloud is about cooperation, "he said. Unified Communications is a lot like VoIP had its early beginning, when the costs are too restrictive. Co-providers face new technology forward.

The residential market is still holding well

VoIP in the residential market is still holding well and according to Diane Myers, directing analyst, service provider VoIP and IMS for Infonetics Research, and there are several versions of VoIP, which will continue to grow with business PBX.

Last year was a tough undertaking. Most of the technology expenditure must be locked, but we saw late last year, things started to pick up, Myers told the E-Commerce Times. We saw a really big spike interest in hosted VoIP service.

A key challenge for smaller providers manage hesitation on the part of large companies work with them. Smaller companies come and go in the business, so business maturity of the service provider may be a Deal Breaker.

In addition, the typical benefits of banding together, each participating union has reached a certain level of success. Each of the eight companies increased their business last year, "said Tessler.

Other companies claim to offer UC, but in reality they only refer to the basic VoIP features such as voicemail messages as a. WAV file, e-mail, "said Haynes's Alteva. True UC is much more.

Alteva's UC product - and a full suite of Microsoft communication services, which are the integrated Voice over IP phone service - enables the real cloud-based UC environment. Cloud environment combines key business-based technology, voice, Office Communications such as instant messaging, video conferencing, desktop sharing and telepresence.

Verizon, AT & T, NGT, Cbeyond, 8x8, and ranked among the top business VoIP services, the leaders of the annual North American Business VoIP Services Leadership Matrix from Infonetics Research.

VoIP services sold to residential / SOHO market still has a majority (about three-quarters) of total VoIP service revenue, "said Infonetics' Myers.

In addition, providers reported increased interest in hosted VoIP services for more than companies of all sizes, including large companies, Myers said.

We expect this trend to continue as more companies aimed at hosting services for their voice needs, business VoIP services, which are almost a third of all VoIP services revenue in 2014, he predicted.

Smaller VoIP service providers may face struggle for survival. Their challenge is to pull customers away from the large incumbent providers according to Myers, and a way to meet very specific customer needs.

I do not know all the way, what I know, it sounds more like trying to survive as the introduction of new technologies. I've been using VOIP when it was available on the commercial side as they still have to improve quality. People call me a cell phone to hear four rings before my phone rang again, and I have fiber-ISP connection. I like the idea of High Definition phones have lacked a sound quality ever. The problem is that a person who speaks your HD is benefit.Think realized what VOIP can do HD podcast, Skype is one thing to take.

The particular setup or operator

It sounds to me more than wrong with the particular setup or operator. We have used the Core's Broadband VOIP for years, and nobody knows the difference between the other end. Ring setup seemed to suffer from the four rings is definitely the installation / configuration issue somewhere.

Development of VoIP hosted Unified Communications opens new opportunities for providers of cloud, but small companies may face a daunting challenge.
