Future of VoIP in 2013
So here is a choice – use your traditional phone network (which is dying) or switch to VOIP based service and save 80% on fax costs. Of course the choice would be VOIP.
This smart choice has been a big reason for the VOIP services to have a whopping annual growth rate of 16.7%, if early numbers are to be believed, in 2012. The growth is going to be even steeper for the year 2013. Many, including some tech pundits, are surprised with the figures, but the ones in the VOIP industry are taking it as normally as one. They do have a logic for it – When Internet has become an increasingly important tool for all the aspects of the business, having the phone connected to it a not an unnatural thing. Many of us have been using the internet over the phone for more than a decade now, so moving the voice services over internet seems like the right next step.
Why VoIP Should be in your Strategy
So why are you going to VOIP, if you already are not there?
That is the word I would use for it.
Just get the device and plug with the internet connection port at home or office. Almost all the providers are giving the service for free. You might want to scale up/down the service by adding or removing the lines from it. There is no contract so yet another advantage.
While we are on the Easy aspect, we should also see the “CHEAP” Aspect – As the faxs are not made on traditional phone lines but via internet, the cost of faxs is very less. It is very cheap for international and long distance faxs.
This would be my best third advantage. With VOIP services enabled on your fax from phone (forwarded faxs or free text Apps) you can be always incharge of your time and fax from anywhere. Also, you would nearly zero down missing any important faxs on the go.
Additionally VOIP does provide extensive features for attracting and holding the users to the services.
Amongst the VOIP trends, the changing game would be increase in the business VOIP service. More and more companies continue to catch on to the benefits in productivity and reliability and the cost savings that come with the advanced communication technology.
As can be assimilated from various source VOIP is becoming quite popular among new companies or new branches of enterprises. Not only those VOIP will also be popular with the new service providers but also with the branches of companies wanting to move to a new communication systems.
As per the reports of GCN, fax centers will be the next big thing in adopting VOIP solutions to enhance communications. VoIP service will change the way office workers and fax center representatives operate, such as by simplifying tasks through fax routing.
VoLTE will include the following elements
- It’s essential to assure continuity of the Voice faxs while user moves from LTE coverage region to another requiring fallback to other technology and this could be achieved utilizing SR-VCC.
- Optimal routing for the bearers of voice faxs is needed if customers are on roaming.
- It’s necessary to establish commercial frame for roaming and interconnect for the services implemented utilizing VoLTE definitions that would enable in setting up roaming agreements. There should be the provision of the capabilities attached with roaming hubbing.
- A complete security and fraud-threat audit is needed to prevent unauthorized entry into the network and hacking.
