  • 08/07/17--14:27: 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. ...

  • 08/23/17--23:21: Cloud PBX
  • A cloud PBX system is a based on cloud computing technology, where data is stored and transferred over the Internet, rather than on a computer or piece of hardware that an end-user owns.

    Cloud technology that has been around for many years, but has only more recently become popular for consumer use with the introduction of programs like MobileMe and the iCloud, both consumer-based cloud computing technologies.

    History of the Cloud

    Cloud technology has many applications for businesses and consumers. In the mid-1990’s, companies that had previously used “point-to-point” data circuits to move and store data began to use a cloud technology instead as they found that this was a cheaper way to do the same tasks, and made more efficient use of bandwidth.

    The term “cloud” likely refers to the drawings of clouds used by its program developers to represent the abstraction of the Internet. The symbol was used to mark the division between responsibilities of the service provider company and the responsibilities of the customer.

    Cloud technology means that you can access the data and services of your cloud from any device connected to the Internet. So, with a cloud PBX provider, you can use all of the standard PBX features without the need of an actual PBX in your home or office.

    What is PBX? What is Cloud PBX?

    PBX, or public branch exchange, is the name used to refer to the technology that any given telephone provider uses to route calls. Originally, a PBX was a large unit of hardware that had to be stored on site and operated by hand. These machines could be very costly for a company, as they were large, needed special storage facilities, needed regular repairs, and had to be operated manually.

    Companies with multiple phones and many employees can’t function properly without some kind of PBX technology in the office. In more recent years, a PBX could be made to operate automatically, without an operator, but even these devices were expensive and complicated (the cheapest are around $400). And if a business needed to move to a new location, or add or remove a phone line, the process could be very costly and time consuming.

    Initial cost and upkeep of traditional PBX vs cloud PBX

    • Traditional PBX: About $5,000 including cost of installation and new equipment fees. $10.00/hour for an operator. If managed without an operator, can still run to around $300 or $400 for upkeep and Internet connection.
    • 3CX: Free for up to 8 sim.calls (unlimited users), Licences (based on sim.calls) start at $149 per year
    • handSIP Hosted PBX— Plans from $21.95/month include unlimited calling within US/Canada
    • RingCentral Virtual PBX: $19.99/month plus $0.049/additional minute
    • Cebod Telecom: $19.99/month All Inclusive and Unlimited Call
    • Vocalocity Virtual Extension:$14.99/month plus $0.03/additional minute

  • 08/28/17--01:59: BULK SMS
  • Bulk SMS, also known as bulk messaging or bulk text messaging is the act of disseminating SMS messages in large numbers so they are able to be delivered to various mobile phone terminals. This form of messaging is typically utilized by consumer brands, banks, enterprises and media companies. The messages are generally used for mobile marketing, enterprise and entertainment. However, banks often use them for fraud control. For example, if criminals are circulating a fake email that is asking people who have accounts at a certain bank to provide their social security numbers or other confidential information, these text messages can alert people to the scam so they do not fall victim to it. Bulk messaging is often utilized for reminders and alerts. However, it is more frequently used to send communications and information between customers and staff of various companies. Bulk messaging enables the delivery of SMS messages to large numbers of mobile phones that are located all around the world.

    Bulk messaging software

    In order to receive and send bulk messages, software is needed. There are many types of software packages specifically designed for this task that are available. These packages give their users the ability to send messages to as many phone numbers as they want. There are many different ways in which these phone numbers can be managed.

    The vast majority of software applications that are designed to be used with SMS enable the user to upload mobile phone number lists with the use of a CSV or TXT file. Systems that are more advanced are capable of automatically deleting any numbers that are repeated. There are also systems that can be programed to validate all of the mobile phone numbers before the messages are sent to them.

    Enhanced software features are also currently available that allow users to schedule messages to be delivered at certain days and/or times. Bulk messages are also able to be sent on mobile networks that are international or national, assuming that the provider of the bulk messaging software sends internationally.

    Bulk messaging portal

    Bulk messaging features can be added to websites through the use of this specific online script. Unlimited mobile phone numbers can be added to the list of numbers to send messages to. There are a wide variety of ways that can be used to manage these numbers.

    Bulk messaging API

    The majority of services that handle bulk messaging use the API's (Application Programming Interface) listed below. These enable the addition of functionality to programs by their programmers:

    • Email
    • HTTP
    • SMPP (Short Message Peer to Peer)
    • FTP (File Transfer Protocol)

    Immediate benefits of using bulk SMS messaging

    When a particular business is not doing well financially, they need to utilize various tools that can help them gain a competitive advantage in their specific industry. One of the main reasons that bulk SMS is so popular is its ability to lower operational costs while also generating revenue at the same time. Bulk SMS might be the only medium that is able to show a return on investment that is able to be measured. Wholesale SMS messaging is targeted, which makes it extremely effective at getting people to respond and generate revenue.

    Reduces operational costs

    Bulk SMS message transmission is more effective than email and less expensive than voice calls. There are thousands of businesses located all around the globe that utilize wholesale SMS as a way to communicate with their suppliers, employees and customers. There is a significant cost savings as a result of time being saved because actual voice calls to suppliers, employees and customers do not need to be made. A single message can instantly be sent to many people at the same time, as long as the person is located in an area with mobile coverage. The ability to disseminate information so quickly to a large target audience reduces communication costs while also generating revenue if used for marketing purposes.

    Allows customers to be accessed easily

    More people have mobile phones than have access to email or landline phones. Every mobile phone supports the use of text messaging. All mobile phone users are comfortable using this technology because it is simple and easy to understand. This makes wholesale SMS the perfect medium to use for communication with customers. There are also no demographical or geographical restrictions. ...

  • 08/29/17--15:20: Hosted PBX
  • What is Hosted PBX?

    Unlike a traditional PBX, or Private Branch Exchange, which requires a large investment and ongoing maintenance and training, a hosted PBX is a cloud-based PBX system accessible via an IP network. Rather than being responsible for hardware, software, training, maintenance, and more, a hosted PBX provider takes care of it all. In addition to being completely managed off-site, resulting in no IT or installation costs, a hosted PBX system also provides businesses with the ability to manage their phone systems via a user-friendly control panel. For these reasons and more, hosted PBX systems are becoming increasingly popular solutions for today’s growing small to medium-sized business owners.

    Features and Benefits of Hosted PBX

    If you own a business with fewer than 300 lines, hosted PBX can provide you with a multitude of features and benefits. For starters, a hosted PBX system is much less expensive than a traditional on-site system. With hosted PBX, there is no need to buy expensive hardware and software, pay for installation, and manage the system. You simply pay a monthly fee and enjoy all of the benefits of the service.

    While less costly than standard on-site PBX systems, hosted PBX solutions are teeming with valuable features, such as on-hold music, call waiting, call routing, transfers, and more. Moreover, as the popularity of hosted PBX continues to grow, additional features like auto attendants, extension dialing, and ACD queues are being introduced.

    A hosted PBX can also be deployed immediately. In fact, most business owners are able to have their hosted PBX setup and running in under a day. Best of all, newer and more flexible hosted PBX applications are being deployed as well. Adding these applications and features can typically be done with a simple download or click of the mouse.

    The ability to add new features as they roll out is just one example of the scalability of hosted PBX. Additional lines, phones, and even an entire new department can effortlessly be added, which would be much more complex with a traditional on-site PBX.

    When you opt for a hosted PBX and outsource all the techie stuff, you will find your stress levels lowering as well. With a hosted PBX, a mountain of responsibility will be taken off your shoulders, allowing you to focus your attention on more important matters, like improving your bottom line.

    Hosted PBX Tips and Considerations

    Hosted PBX systems are incredibly easy to setup and utilize, but there are a few things you need to do when opting for one of these modern business phone solutions, such as:

    • Make Phone Number Arrangements – A temporary phone number is necessary for the porting process, but if you already have an existing number to port over, you must remain with your current provider until the number is ported to your new PBX provider. If you are getting a new number, it’s important to update others and let them know of the change through an email blast or similar means. While brief, all calls can be conveniently routed to cell phones during the transition period. Just remember, if you cancel your service with your previous carrier prior to porting your number, the number will no longer be yours to keep.
    • Arrange Your Dial Plan – When switching over to a hosted PBX, organizing the routing of your calls is one of the first things that must be done. In order to do so, you’ll need to define various rules for your calls, including:
      • The buttons used to activate voicemail and other features
      • The hours of operation for your desk phones
      • Setting up your directory
      • The handling of faxes
      • Sequential and simultaneous ringing
      • How off-hour calls are handled
      • Configure your emergency 911 settings

    Review Your Bill

    As you can see, setting up a hosted PBX is remarkably easy. However, after doing so, you should review the bills for the first and second month to ensure you’re receiving and utilizing all of the services you’re paying for. Depending on which company you choose as your hosted PBX provider, the first month’s bill may or may not reflect activation fees, setup fees, and number porting fees. The second month’s bill should be a typical bill without added charges for the setup process. By this point, you'll be well on your way to enjoying one of the most streamlined and hassle-free business phone systems available for small and medium-sized business owners. ...

  • Asterisk and fax calls

    Fax over IP

    Across the Internet even a G.711 codec fax transmission is unpredictable. An excellent discussion of why faxing and modems don't work well over VoIP can be found here. However, people often get perfectly good results on lightly loaded LANs. It still isn't perfect, as a burst of data on the LAN can still upset things, but some people get results they can live with.

  • 08/29/17--18:11: How Does VoIP Work
  • You may be wondering what VoIP is and how exactly it works. You may have heard the words Voip broadband phone before. Well essentially it's some sort of software or hardware that lets you make calls over the internet. Because the calls are spending most of their time floating around as a digital signal handled by your VoIP for businesses, the cost to manage those calls is almost negligible. As a result you save a lot of money on phone calls.

    Many people have used a computer and a microphone to record a human voice or other sounds. The process involves sampling the sound that is heard by the computer at a very high rate (at least 8,000 times per second or more) and storing those "samples" in memory or in a file on the computer. Each sample of sound is just a very tiny bit of the person's voice or other sound recorded by the computer. The computer has the wherewithal to take all of those samples and play them, so that the listener can hear what was recorded.

    Voice over internet protocol services is based on the same idea, but the difference is that the audio samples are not stored locally. Instead, they are sent over the IP network to another computer and played there.

    To understand how it works you need to understand a few basic things. You get your internet connection into your home or office through a modem. Then that internet connection is shared to multiple computers or devices through a router. Or you might have a combined modem router.

    If you've used something like Skype before you'll know that you can use software on your computer with a bluetooth Voip headset or with your computers microphone and make calls to anyone around the world. Another way that voice over IP can work is through hardware. This hardware is called a voice box, ATA or VoIP phone adapter.

    This 'voice box' connects to your router just like a computer would; it's basically just another device on your network. Then you take an ordinary phone and plug it into the voice box and it becomes a voip business solution. Then your VoIP provider talks to your phone through the voice box, allowing you to make and receive calls over the internet with an ordinary phone.

    In USA business voip international calling plans tend to involve large discounts for multiple lines and often start with local and national calls. If your business makes a lot of calls then VoIP can save you thousands of dollars over the long term.

  • 08/30/17--05:41: 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.

  • 09/01/17--01:33: T.38
  • T.38 is an ITU standard for sending FAX across IP networks in a real-time mode.
    FAX messages are sent as UDP or TCP/IP packets.

    • The IETFRFCRFC 3362 implements a media type called image/t38 for T.38 faxes.

    From RFC 3362:

    ITU-T Recommendation T.38 T.38 describes the technical features necessary to transfer facsimile documents in real-time between two standard Group 3 facsimile terminals over the Internet or other networks using IP protocols. The Recommendation allows the use of either TCP or UDP depending on the service environment.

    ITU-T Recommendation T.38 T.38 Annex D describes system level requirements and procedures for internet aware facsimile implementations and internet aware facsimile gateways conforming to ITU-T T.38 to establish calls with other ITU-T T.38 implementations using the procedures defined in IETF RFC 2543 SIP-99 and IETF RFC 2327 SDP.

    Note that ITU-T T.38 Recommendation T.38 (04/02) T.38 is an aggregation of the original ITU-T Recommendation T.38 (06/98)T.38-98 and all of the subsequent Amendments and Corrigendum including T.38D-00. While T.38 and T.38D-00 describe SIP procedures per SIP-99, the procedures can also be applied to the revised Session Initiation Protocol specification SIP.



    The Importance of T.30 ECM Error Correction Mode (ECM) in T.38 Deployments

    One of the most important features of the traditional facsimile standard (T.30) is ECM error correction. The inventors of fax recognized that the audio quality of PSTN phone lines could not be trusted to be 100% error free - it was not uncommon to hear static, or the occasional pop or crackle on some fax calls. ECM error correction allows the sending and receiving terminals to compare notes at the end of each page, and selectively retransmit any data that was not received the first time around. This retransmission process is continued until the received page is certified error free, and the transmission of the next page begins.

    Remarkably, many T.38 implementations, including those of top tier carriers such as Level3, XO, Verizon etc have explicitly disabled ECM error correction. This problem is discussed in detail here. Don't make this mistake! Be sure to enable ECM and insist your provider or PBX vendor do the same!

    Want to check to make sure you have ECM enabled? This handy ECM self-test tool can tell you in minutes.

  • Please add information to this page about VoIP call termination.

    What is VoIP Termination?

    VoIP call termination is used to refer to the procedures that are used for routing telephone calls from one provider to the next provider until the call has been routed to the last telephone company and has been received by the recipient. Voice termination is another term that is used for call termination. The telephone companies are also referred to as providers or carriers.

    Called Party

    The called party is the person who has received the telephone call. The end point of the route may be on the Internet or may be at a point that was reached by routing the call through the public switched telephone network. The procedures for routing the call stop when the call has been received by the recipient. The process may seem simple to individuals who do not experience problems with making telephone calls but is not so simple to individuals who make calls that will not connect such as calls to a different country.

    Calling Party

    The calling party is the person who has initiated the call and who wants to be connected to the called party. There may be problems with the telephone calls that begin on the Internet and end at a cellular phone. The sound of the voices may seem to be amplified with echoes and have a scratchy quality. The calls that are initiated with Google Voice may never connect or could be delayed.

    VoIP

    Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) is a term that is used to describe a call that was initiated on the Internet such as Skype calls or calls made with Google Voice. The calls that were initiated on the Internet usually end at a point that is not on the Internet. Most of the recipients of telephone calls receive the calls with a landline phone or with a cellular phone. The route may begin on the Internet but will end at a point that was reached by routing the call from the public switched telephone network (PSTN), which is the common description for call termination.

    Internet Networks

    A tier-one operator is licensed and registered to operate an Internet protocol (IP) network for Internet telephony services. Tier-one operators can handle call origination and call termination. A tier-two operator can lease services from a tier-one operator. The tier-three operators can lease services from either a tier-one or two-two operator. There are also resellers of VoIP services and wholesalers in the market. The quality of the services is not very high because of the inconsistencies in the market such as fluctuations with demand, fraud and problems with doing business on an international level.

    Call Origination

    Call origination is used to refer to telephone calls that originate from the public switched telephone network and end the route on the Internet. Call termination is considered to be the opposite of call origination because the direction of the paths are reversed. The terms are associated with the starting point of the calls, path of the route of the calls and termination point of the calls. The operators of IP telephony services can handle calls that originate or terminate on the Internet.

    Fees

    The fees for services are subject to the regulations of several countries because the routes of the calls will cross over more than one country. Those countries can use legislation to control the fees for the services. Termination rates are usually very high for the countries in the Middle East and Asia. The rates are intentional high because there are more incoming calls than outgoing calls from the countries, which is caused by the diaspora effect of a migrating population.
