  • 06/07/16--00:03: softswitch
  • Softswitch is a central device in a telecommunications network which connects telephone calls from one phone line to another, across a telecommunication network or the public Internet, entirely by means of software running on a general-purpose system. Most landline calls are routed by purpose-built electronic hardware however, soft switches using general purpose servers and VoIP technology are becoming more popular.
    Nowadays, many telecommunications networks make use of combinations of softswitches and more traditional purpose-built hardware.

    A softswitch is also a VoIP server, providing a soft switch platform with full IP PBX call features. The most difference from IP PBX is its enormous numbers of users.

  • 06/08/16--22:37: Mobile VoIP
  • Mobile VoIP is an efficient, low-cost way to communicate using your cell phone and the services provided by your home or business VoIP provider.

    How Does Mobile VoIP Work?


    Mobile VoIP works with a cell phone’s 3G, 4G, GSM, or other Internet service to send voice calls as digital signals over the Internet using voice over IP technology. Mobile VoIP phones can also take advantage of WiFi hotspots to eliminate the calling costs of a cellular voice or data plan.

    By using VoIP, mobile VoIP phone users — especially smartphone users — can benefit from lower costs when calling, texting, or other common smartphone activities. Digital data transmission using VoIP is also typically faster, as the data is spread out over multiple packets, each taking the fastest route to its intended destination.

    Using a mobile VoIP phone with WiFi hotspot access can also reduce a mobile VoIP phone user's costs by sidestepping the carrier's expensive 3G service altogether. For instance, with a cellular carrier's monthly data plan, callers can easily exceed bandwidth maximums, incurring overage charges. Tapping into WiFi hotspots with mobile VoIP software reduces that risk and extends the lifespan of the monthly data allotment.

    A mobile VoIP phone service can eliminate the need for a basic voice plan, as well as optional (and costly) text add-ons. With a mobile VoIP phone, cell phone users can enjoy more flexibility in calling times than a cellular voice plan provides, with fewer restrictions. VoIP mobile phone service means that a mobile VoIP user can make unlimited inexpensive or free calls using voice over IP technology at any time.

    Mobile VoIP users don't need to worry about the limitations associated with cell phone calling plans, such as:

    • Anytime minutes
    • Night or weekend minutes
    • Rollover minutes
    • Roaming charges
    • Incoming call charges
    • Messaging limits
    • Mobile-to-mobile calling (check with your mobile VoIP provider, some do treat in-network calls differently)

    Mobile VoIP phone users can also take advantage of the additional, integrated features a mobile VoIP app supports. This includes high-bandwidth activities such as group chat and video chat. Accessing these functions without mobile VoIP software (by fring or Talkonaut, for instance), typically requires a separate app, and using it could impact or exceed monthly text and bandwidth maximums.

    Accessing Mobile VoIP

    Cell phone users can use mobile VoIP service on their phone with the addition of mobile VoIP software. These are apps offered by VoIP phone service providers customers may already be using at home or at work, such as Vonage, or standalone mobile VoIP apps such as Skype, Vyke, or Truphone.

    Some services, such as Truphone, also offer an entire mobile VoIP network by combining a SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card and an app together. ...

  • 06/09/16--08:30: Ecessa
  • Ecessa-Logo.png



    Ecessa Corporation manufactures network control hardware and software for data and telecommunications. Since 2000, the company has focused on Internet, cloud and wide area network technologies to give business networks greater reliability, redundancy and the ability to confidently use more affordable types of bandwidth. Specific to VoIP, Ecessa has developed several products to improve call quality and reliability.

    Ecessa PowerLink™ http://www.ecessa.com/powerlink/ balances up to 25 WAN lines (T1, xDSL, Cable, ISDN, Wireless, Satellite, fibre, etc.) into a greater pool of available bandwidth while providing business continuity through ISP failover and redundancy. The appliance comes in various models that support bandwidth from 60 Mpbs to 20 Gbps. It was recently updated to include network security with a built-in firewall and VPN gateway.

    ClariLink™ http://www.ecessa.com/clarilink/ incorporates all of the above features, plus provides real-time call failover for hosted VOIP. ClariLink optimizes call performance by managing SIP traffic among multiple Internet links to avoid jitter, latency and congestion. ClariLink monitors incoming and outgoing calls in real time. In the event of a WAN failure or call degradation (i.e. high latency, excessive jitter, packet loss, etc) it automatically moves active VoIP calls to better performing WAN links, without the call dropping or the user even noticing. This means that VoIP users whose providers support these features never have to worry about another dropped or low-quality VoIP call. Ecessa is the only service/product offering this advanced feature.

    The new Ecessa Edge™ combines failover, load balancing and SIP features for small offices and branch offices at an affordable monthly price point. It accepts up to three WAN/ISP links and supports up to 150 Mpbs bandwidth.

    Ecessa's most advanced product, WANworX™ http://www.ecessa.com/wanworx/ software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) solutions, are the most scalable and flexible technology for improving WAN performance and ensuring Never Down™ network availability. WANworX enables enterprises with multiple locations to seamlessly connect all their locations and connect to the data center, Internet and cloud-based networks.

    By integrating multiple WAN links from different carriers, WANworX supports multiple paths for data to travel, and continuously monitors links and routes traffic over the best-performing links, ensuring not only seamless uptime but also predictable application performance, even when carrier service level fluctuate. This is particularly important for real-time applications, such as VoIP, videoconferencing and VDI, where even a slight delay can result in dropped calls, glitchy video and dropped sessions - plus wasted time while all those services must reconnect.

    Ecessa products enable network engineers to strategically design wide area networks they way they want to, add links, add rules, and not shy away from complex multi-layered networks that will accomplish their performance goals. And it allows them to manage the whole thing confidently with cloud-based controls.

    Within the Ecessa suite of products, you'll find solutions for:
    • VoIP Failover and Monitoring
    • Multi-ISP WAN Failover
    • Intelligent Inbound and Outbound Load Balancing
    • Proactive monitoring and reporting of WAN network traffic
    • Network Traffic and Application Visibility, Traffic Shaping and Application Prioritization
    • Firewall and VPN
    • WAN Virtualization and VPN Tunnels between sites

  • 06/09/16--10:09: Call Center Software
  • Call center software is the software system that allows a company or organization to run a call center. This page lets you compare call center software providers.

    There are hundreds of different providers of call center software across the globe, and every call center software system has its pros and cons. When selecting the right call center software for your business, contact center, or call center, it's important to decide which features you want your phone system to have.

    Types of Call Center Software


    ACD helps productivity by assigning inbound agents to incoming calls. The automatic call distributor uses a set of instructions to determine who gets the call in the system. The algorithm can route calls based on agent skill or whoever has an idle phone. ACD can use caller ID or automatic number identification, but usually interactive voice response is enough to help the system determine the reason for the call.

    An automatic call distributor can also take advantage of computer telephony integration. Agents can receive relevant data on their computers along with the incoming call.

    Computer telephony integration is a broad category of software that connects telephone and computer systems. Computer telephony integration software can have both desktop and server functions. Various applications make up a system that can control phones, display call information, and route and report calls.

    Interactive voice response allows callers to route themselves to the appropriate department or use the company’s database for assistance. More sophisticated interactive voice response systems can access accounts and perform certain tasks, such as activating a credit card through a bank’s phone system. IVR involves using dial tone multi-frequency or voice commands. In the VoIP industry, a PBXauto attendant is near interchangeable with IVR. However, auto attendants are not capable of speech recognition.

    A predictive dialer calls a list of phone numbers at once. Outbound agents are then connected to the numbers that answer. A predictive dialer uses calculations to minimize the idle time of agents and the potential of losing answered calls when no agents are available.

    Contact Center Software

    For contact centers, software includes applications for chat, email, and web interaction in addition to telephony functions.

    Call Center Software Providers

    This is a list of call center software providers and developers. Please keep this list in alphabetical order.
    • Thirdlane Call Center software delivers a reliable and highly-customizable contact center solution with sophisticated features and functionality for a broad range of call centers - on-premises or in the cloud.

  • 06/10/16--20:49: Hosted VoIP
  • Hosted VoIP is another term for Hosted PBX. "Hosted" means to say that the hardware and PBX is hosted at an off-site location from where the VoIP telephone service is being used. An office can have VoIP telephone service that powers their phones in the office, but their PBX could be hosted at their VoIP providers data center, thus the term: hosted VoIP.

    Benefits of Hosted VoIP


    There are many benefits to using Hosted VoIP rather than a traditional phone system, or an on-premise VoIP system. The main benefit is cost- a Hosted VoIP system costs much less to set-up than an on-premise PBX. In many cases, there are no set-up fees for a hosted VoIP system. Hosted VoIP phone systems fall under operational expenditure rather than capital expenditure, which also make hosted VoIP systems attractive to businesses.

    Another benefit to a hosted VoIP system over an on-premise PBX is that hosted VoIP providers will take care of all the set-up and installation, meaning you do not need to be a telecom or VoIP expert in order to get hosted VoIP.

  • 06/11/16--21:16: VoIP Softphones
  • What is a VoIP Softphone?

    A VoIP softphone is a program that installs to and runs from your computer. A VoIP softphone enables you to make calls with just your computer using a VoIP service. Skype, iChat, and GoogleTalk are some of the more popular services, but there are many different ones available for you to choose from.

    A VoIP softphone is accessible wherever you have a computer with you and there are both paid and free VoIP softphones. Companies often offer their own proprietary softphones that are configured to work with their service like Cisco and Counterpath.


    The VoIP softphones are designed to be intuitive to use and most resemble an actual phone handset. Or you can choose to have the layout show your contacts if that makes calls easier. You can either click the buttons on the interface to dial or use the number pad on your keyboard.

    VoIP softphones are only a program on the computer, so a headset with a microphone or an internal microphone and speakers are also needed to make the calls. Headsets prices start at a very affordable $5-$10 for a standard configuration and can get up in the $100-$200 area for a high-quality wireless headset with a long battery life and interchangeable ear pieces.

    Who Can Benefit From VoIP Softphones?

    Softphones can be used by anybody with a computer. There are a few types of users who can really benefit from the features of a VoIP softphone:

    • VoIP beginners
    • Heavy travelers
    • Telecommuters
    • Call center employees
    • Small businesses
    • Frequent long-distance callers


    VoIP beginners can quickly and cheaply explore how the service works by downloading a VoIP softphone to make free computer-to-computer or computer-to-phone calls. Heavy travelers can avoid racking up large bills on their mobile phones or at hotels by using a low-cost VoIP service with a VoIP softphone. Telecommuters can register a VoIP softphone with their office PBX system to enjoy the same call features available to them at the office while they are on the move. Call center employees and small businesses can save on costs by pairing a VoIP service with a softphone to avoid purchasing and maintaining desk phones. International and long-distance rates are much lower when using a VoIP softphone, so those making regular or frequent calls out-of-state or country can cut some major costs.

    VoIP Softphone Features

    VoIP softphones offer the same features that traditional phones offer and more:

    • Call forwarding
    • Call conferencing
    • Hold capabilities
    • Call transferring
    • Voicemail
    • Greeting capabilities
    • Text, IM, and video capabilities
    • Echo cancellation to improve sound quality
    • Contact list/address book


    Softphones also use less energy than phone and phone system hardware, which saves on costs and is useful for green companies.

    VoIP Softphone Protocols

    VoIP service uses different protocols to determine how the data is processed and transferred over the network. Your VoIP softphone needs to support the same protocol your VoIP service uses. ...

  • Synopsis

    The practical implementation of VoIP was started on hardware based IP Phones. The idea was well received and was transferred into the concept of Soft Phones or software based IP Phones. These softwares always required some additional installation to the native Operating System. Most common examples of Softphones or Software based SIP client is Counterpath's X-Lite and Bria.

    The Evolution of Software Development made it possible to translate or formulate equivalent of almost every desktop based application to web based application. This brought major shift in Software Industry as the web browsers are integral part of almost every Operating System. SIP clients, were also transformed into Web Extensions. Most of the time, Flash was used to develop such extensions however, it always required extra plugin installation, thus decreasing system performance, and increasing chance to troubleshoot as it required additional resources to be deployed. And this problem gave rise to the concept of WebRTC.

    Overview

    customLogo.gif.png

    WebRTC provides the functionality of realtime multimedia applications without any installation of additional plugins, downloads or extensions. The ideal form of WebRTC describes such web based Real Time Communication independent of Browser being used by user. It's a Javascript based API originally being developed to develop browser to browser communication applications for Voice, Video and Peer to Peer File Sharing tasks.

    Architecture

    The architecture of WebRTC, as described by W3C looks something like this:

    Design

    Major components of WebRTC include:

    • getUserMedia, which allows a web browser to access the camera and microphone
    • PeerConnection, which sets up the audio/video calls
    • DataChannels, which allow browsers to share data via peer-to-peer

  • 06/12/16--22:33: WebRTC vs VoIP
  • Theres is a bit of confusion in the telecommunication industry as to whether or not WebRTC is compatible with or runs against VoIP. WebRTC is a viable Internet Protocol (IP) communications system that parallels and runs alongside the internet-based phone system VoIP. VoIP services and WebRTC solutions are both heavily promoted in the business and residential fields. So the confusion lays here: are VoIP and WebRTC providers friends or foes? Can the two systems coexist, do they overlap, and how does the client benefit from these?


    The similarities

    WebRTC and V.VoIP are similar in that both aim to enhance the user experience and enable any consumer device (whether it be mobile phone, fax, internet etc.) to effortlessly connect from anywhere and on any network internationally.

    The differences

    The primary difference between the two services is that VoIP uses a multitude of variants such as VoIP over DSL/cable modem, voice over Wi-Fi/3G (VoWiFi/3G), voice over LTE (VoLTE), and Rich Communication Suite (RCS), while WebRTC is solely focused on browser-based communications.

    VoIP

    VoIP is an online telecommunications system which offers simpler and more efficient technology than traditional phone service. VoIP uses advance phone technology in order to make phone calls from the office or home more cost effective and with more features. Standard telephone systems uses telephone lines to transmit phone calls, using physical circuits for connection. Since VoIP is cloud-based, calls are sent as digital data and no cables are needed to send the call so any kind of Internet connection can be used to make calls and from a plethora of devices. Millions of people and businesses have switched to VoIP in order to save money as well as to be able to access the same lines from any place and any device.

    Benefits that most VoIP providers include are: around the clock customer service; reduced costs compared to traditional phones; no installation or service fees; free ad-ons including unlimited calling to the US and Canada, unlimited extensions, 1,000 free toll-free minutes, high-definition video-conferencing, desktop integration with popular CRMs, online PBX controls, virtual extensions, remote access, auto-attendants, and unlimited extensions for multiple office locations.

    WebRTC

    WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) is an API being drafted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Put simply, its a software intermediary that makes it possible for application programs to interact with each other and share data. WebRTC is used to enable browser-to-browser applications for voice calling, P2P file sharing, and video chat without plugins. WebRTC is an emerging technology that are accessed with JavaScript APIs and currently in development are an audio and video data stream as well as API which allow for two or more users to communicate browser-to-browser, real-time gaming, text chat, file transfer and other online based sharing.

    Connecting vs. clashing

    WebRTC makes it feasible for web developers to enable VoIP into their Web-based applications. Since WebRTC is in its early stages of development, it does not include any signaling protocol which leaves this choice and development and integration to the developer. By integrating a signaling protocol into WebRTC, a developer can create a full VoIP soft client on a browser.
    One nice example of such VoIP soft client is CryptoVoIP SIP WebRTCDialer which uses SIP Protocol for signalling. The good part of CryptoVoIP web dialer is that it does not require web-sockets or webrtc support in SIP Servers or softswitch. ...

  • 06/12/16--22:47: Unified Communications
  • Unified Communications, often abbreviated as UC, is the combination of different types of communication mediums including telephone service (VoIP), chat, video and web conferencing, messaging, email, fax, and other types of communications. Unified Communications systems can be sold and implemented with a select amount of individual communication mediums, or many integrated into a single unified system.


    Unified communications consist of integrating various real-time and non-real time communication services into a convenient package for the user. Examples of real-time services commonly used include instant messaging, telephony and data sharing. Non-real time communication services focus mainly on messaging services like e-mail, SMS, voicemail and fax.

    With a unified communications solution, the user can receive a message through one communication medium and use another one to access it. One common example of this would be receiving a voicemail message on an office landline phone and using a mobile phone to retrieve it. ...
