How VoIP is Becoming a Global Communications Standard

How VoIP is Becoming a Global Communications Standard | Local Business Solutions

The end of the landline is getting closer; British Telecom, the largest telecommunications provider in the United Kingdom, recently affirmed its intention to take down the residential Public Switched Telephone Network for the purpose of making a full transition to Voice over Internet Protocol.

Details about how BT will manage the national switch from PSTN to VoIP are still forthcoming; what is known is that the BT Openreach broadband structure will need to be extended across the country to many communities, and this will likely be accomplished by piggybacking on the existing copper lines. BT wants to focus on its broadband network as a means of consolidating its telecommunications infrastructure, particularly at a time when mobile callers are increasingly connecting their smartphones to Wi-Fi networks for the purpose of making VoIP calls.

The Future of Telecommunication Technology

Broadband and mobile networks are quickly replacing landlines around the world; in fact, the United States is lagging in this regard. In countries such as Japan, Finland, and South Korea, advanced broadband and LTE networks have largely replaced PSTN calling.

In the enterprise world, the switch to VoIP systems is happening at a very fast pace. Business owners should focus on making sure that their companies have access to adequate broadband and mobile data connections; quality of service for business VoIP can be attained with a minimum of 10 Mbps, which usually provides at least one Mbps of bandwidth. To provide continuity of business communications, the wireless broadband network should at least support 3G connections, ideally 4G and LTE.

The global transition to VoIP calling is very good news for business owners in the High Desert because VoIP networks are more efficient when they connect to each other. In the near future, the Web Real-Time Calling (WebRTC) protocol will become a standard feature of next-generation browsers, and this will result in a greater enhancement of VoIP calling.

Currently, more business owners in California are opting for Unified Communications, a new business process that consolidates voice calling with text messaging, internet chat, voice mail, email, file sharing, online collaboration, and customer relationship management systems. Companies that have already adopted Unified Communications, which requires an underlying VoIP system, have gained a competitive edge through increased efficiency and productivity.

In the end, VoIP is bound to continue improving as it becomes the new global standard of communications. Contact us today to learn more about how VoIP solutions can help advance your business.[/su_column]
