2017-04-24 - Business Voice/SIP/VOIP service is the keystone to any business. Use SIP Trunks, VOIP, PRI, or even POTS services to provide phone service between sites or employees working form home. Take advantage of our low price guarantee for dedicated business Business Voice/SIP/VOIP from national providers.
Plain Old Telephone Service: Quite simply it is the analog phone line provide by the local phone company (LEC) to your home or business with many features can be included such as caller ID, call forwarding, etc.
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) service can reduce your overall phone bill. Use a VOIP system.
Connecting two or more Business Offices together? MPLS (MultiProtocol Label Switching) might be your best option.
Business voice service can be accomplished in a number of different ways. The standard POTS (Plan old Telephone Service) or a broadband solutions such as VoIP (Voice over IP / Internet) and Integrated Service.
Many businesses are using SIP TRUNKs to create their own inexpensive digital PBX units. With SIP trunks, your business can have a "local" phone number in any country or state. If you are making frequent calls to certain locations, this may be the best solution for your business.
|Most people a familiar with POTS. Quite simply it is the
analog phone line provide by the local phone company (LEC) to your
home or business. It is a basic analogy service, many features
can be included such as caller ID, call forwarding, etc.
This type of service still has its place in the business world. If a company has a major investment is analog PBX (Private Branch Exchange) equipment, savings and features available in newer technologies will not provide a return on investment. Small offices might find it less expensive to use POTS to bring a few phone lines into their business.
Growing businesses and new companies should consider a digital service to take advantage of the new flexibility.
|Voice over IP; simply put it is a phone service that uses
a broadband internet connection. This new technology has
some major advantages, but has some drawbacks.
The advantages are around cost and flexibility. VOIP based phone systems are not tied by local office wiring like in a conventional phone system. Calls can come into your Florida based office, and ring at the home office of your California based employee. That can can also be routed via the public network out to an office in Germany for no additional cost.
SIP based VOIP service tends to be most flexible. You can obtain SIP trunks (inbound/outbound service to public phones) can originate in any country or location. You can have local phone calls world wide with this service if you find most of your customers/vendors in a different area of the world.
The draw back for VOIP based service is the Quality of Service. Given the use of the public network, you could experience quality problems. These issues will not bother most customers, worse case you might need to place the call again if the service isn't clear. The Quality is also based upon the company/user connection to the network. Low latency services with high bandwidth would be preferred to cope with additional network traffic such as uploads/downloads.
Local T1 Ditial Voice/Phone
Local voice T1 provides 24 local voice channels (telephone lines) over a T1 circuit. With local T1 voice you can usually access long distance service for better than retail per minute rates.
Long Distance T1 Voice/Phone
A long distance T1 voice circuit provides extremely competitive per minute rates because the long distance T1 circuit by-passes the local provider. The customer is not required to pay the local provider for transferring the call to a long distance provider. The down side of using long distance T1 is that because the local provider is by-passed, local calls cannot be made for free. Long distance T1 voice is often preferred by businesses like nationwide call centers which make a high volume of long distance calls. With long distance T1, nationwide long distance calls can be as low as a penny a minute.
Local and Long Distance T1 Voice/Phone PRI
Local and long distance PRI share the same benefits and limitations mentioned above for analog local and long distance voice T1s. A few differences between analog voice and PRI are that PRI dedicates one channel for call administration. This leaves 23 channels per t1 for voice traffic rather than 24. The administration channel enables PRI service to have more robust features than analog, such as DID (direct inward dial) numbers and better caller ID. A PRI card is required in order for a PBX to facilitate PRI service. A new PRI card costs between $1000 and $2500.
T1 Voice SIP
SIP (session initiation protocol) is a relatively new technology that bridges the gap between voice and IP applications. SIP, with a modern IP-PBX, eliminates the need for expensive PRI cards to configure voice packet compatibility with the PSTN (public switched telephone network). The elimination of the need for PRI configuration also improves packet efficiency.
T1 Voice/Phone Virtual DIDs
Another advantage of SIP is virtual DIDs. Virtual DIDs allow companies to have a local presence (local phone number) in other geographic locations, including other countries of the world. For example, a company in Los Angeles could have local phone numbers in New York, Houston, Seattle and London.
T1 Digital Voice/Phone VoIP
VoIP (voice over internet protocol) voice traffic can be transmitted over the public internet, across the secure network of a telecom provider, or via the private MPLS network of a multi-location business.
T1 Digital Voice, VoIP Over the Internet
VoIP over the internet has its limitations because CoS (Class of Service) packet prioritization cannot be enforced on the public internet. The result of this is that voice traffic is competing with all other internet traffic at each relay. This lack of CoS can often result in latency and packet loss. High latency and packet loss often results in poor voice quality. These issues are virtually non-existent with VoIP over private network telecom provider.
T1 Digital Voice/Phone, VoIP Over the Closed Network of a Telecom Provider
With this option, the provider keeps all voice traffic on their private network, until this traffic reaches the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). This allows the provider to ensure that voice traffic receives top priority at each network relay, and more routine, less latency sensitive applications receive lower priority, while a call is in progress. The result of these measures is virtually perfect call quality. All major telecom providers now routinely utilize VoIP technology voice transmission.
T1 Digital Voice, VoIP Over the MPLS WAN of a Multi-Location Business
With VoIP over the private MPLS (Multiprotocol label switching) network of a multi-location business, CoS is ensured by the provider, so call quality is excellent in these situations as well. An advantage for businesses with VoIP over an MPLS network is that all location-to-location calls within this network are free.
T1 Digital Voice On an Integrated Circuit
Integrated T1 provides more than one application like VoIP over a closed network of a telecom provider, video conferencing, location-to-location networking and commercial internet, over a single bandwidth pipe. Integrated T1 allows smaller and medium sized businesses, with limited budgets to enjoy several applications which at one time could only be afforded by large companies.
T1 Digital Voice and Channelized Integrated
Channelized service was the predominant integrated technology prior to the arrival dynamic integration. Channelized integrated service is static, in that applications assigned to each channel of a t1 circuit is fixed. With channelized service, there was much bandwidth wasted, because when an application was not used, the bandwidth assigned for that application could not be reassigned in real-time to other applications which would operate more effectively with additional bandwidth.
T1 Digital Voice and Dynamic Integrated
With the maturity of dynamic bandwidth allocation, bandwidth is now reassigned and prioritized in real-time, to ensure that bandwidth for applications that are not being used, can burst to applications which are being used. For example, when a phone line is in use, a certain amount of bandwidth is dedicated to that call. As soon as the call has ended the bandwidth goes right back to the internet side of the integrated circuit.
