Voip saves You Money …Big Time

Advantage of using VOIP

VOIP or Voice over IP can Save You Money…Big Time VoIP (voice over IP, or voice delivered using the Internet Protocol) is a term used for the delivery of voice information using the Internet Protocol (IP). In general, this means sending voice information (in digital form) in discrete packets rather than in the traditional circuit-committed protocols of the public switched telephone network (PSTN).

A major advantage of VoIP and Internet telephony is that it avoids the tolls charged by ordinary telephone service, and that’s where the savings are. VoIP, now used somewhat generally, derives from the VoIP Forum, an effort by major equipment providers for sending voice (audio) and video using IP on the public Internet and within an intranet. The Forum also promotes the use of directory service standards so that users can locate other users, and the use of touch-tone signals for automatic call distribution and voice mail.

In addition to IP, VoIP uses  real-time protocol (RTP) technology just to ensure that the packets sent over gets delivered in a timely way using various public networks. It is currently difficult to guarantee Quality of Service (QoS). For a much better service a private network is required which is managed  by an Internet telephony service provider (ITSP) or a dedicated enterprise.

To ensure faster delivery of packets across the network at least one equipment manufacturer makes use of the “ping” method. By pinging the equipment contacts all the possible gateways having access to the public network and selects the fastest path and then a TCP connection is established between the two ends. The VOIP technology positions a “VoIP device” at a gateway. This is done by an enterprise. Voice transmissions packets are received by the gateway from users using the network of the company and then those packets are routed to other parts of the intranet (LAN or WAN). By using T-carrier system or E-carrier interface, the packets are sent over the public switched telephone network.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology allows you to use your broadband internet connection to provide you with a full-featured telephone line! The quality is as good as or better than traditional phone providers, but much more advanced thanks to all the new features and technology that are included. And most importantly, it’s much less expensive than old-fashioned phone providers!

What do I need in order to use VOIP?

All you need is a broadband internet connection (DSL or Cable), a Router, and the adapter supplied by your provider. Once you receive the hardware from ?our provider, you’ll simply follow simple instructions to hook it all up. You connect your existing telephone to the phone adapter,(supplied by your provider), plug it directly into your broadband internet connection and your phone calls are sent and received directly through the internet, and you can use any phone you choose.

Will VOIP save me money? and, Why is it so inexpensive?

save your time and money with VOIPYou’ll save a lot of money over your traditional phone services. For about $20 a month, you’ll get unlimited local and long-distance calling in the US and Canada! Try that with your existing phone company. You’ll also get almost every feature you can think of (caller ID, call forwarding, call waiting, three-way calling, voicemail, and much more) at no additional charge! And if you make international calls, you can’t afford not to switch to VOIP — international rates are amazingly low! VOIP is such good value for a lot of reasons. Using the Internet to route phone calls is very cost-effective. Also, current government legislation favors Internet phone companies.

Recent changes by the FCC mean that individual states won’t be able to restrict VoIP companies since they are not classified as phone companies, saving everyone money. And as the technology becomes more mature, prices are expected to continue to fall. Benefits of VoIP The integration of voice and data traffic will be demanded by multi application software. The inevitable evolution will be web servers capable of interacting with voice, data and images. An integrated infra structure that supports all forms of communication allows more standardization and lesser equipment management. The result is a fault tolerant design. Cost reduction The Public Switched Telephone Networks’ toll services can be bypassed using the Internet backbone, which means a slash in prices of the long distance calls.

However these reductions may slightly decrease when the Federal communications Commission (FCC) removes the Enhanced Service Provider (ESP) status granted to Internet service providers (ISPs) by which they do not have to pay the local access fees to use the telephone company (TELCO) local access facilities. Access fees form a significant part of all long distance calls. But in spite of this, the circuit switched telephony would be expensive because of lack of bandwidth consolidation and speech compression technique.
