Philippine VoIP Networking
Businesses in the Philippines would sometimes suffer overloading
in the handling capacity of their communication trunk lines. But
due to lack of funds, these lacks of handling capacity of their
telephone trunk lines are left out in the cold, meaning just to
let it be, as they do not have the financial capacity to enhance
their telephone trunk line handling system.
It has been noted that the Public Switched Telephone Network or
PSTN was the single equipment was the equipment designed for handling
the large volume of voice over transmission of the various incoming
and outgoing calls of a particular communication network but the
inconsistencies of the built in system failed to support the packet
based voice transmission support system, leading to several ways
wherein new system has to be made to correct the
The signals have first to be converted to the right forms or packets.
They then must, at all cost, be able to transmit without delay and
interference all throughout the network. The conversion of these
data packets will then be the last stage, whereby all these packets
will then be reverted to voice signals.
VoIP will be the only form of voice transmission system that has
the over-all capacity to address this problem in one setting. The
System of VoIP technology has been applied in these kinds of problems
in several trunk lines of businesses around the world with amazing
success. Because of these capacities, most business with heavy incoming
and out going communication loads has turned to the wonders of VoIP
technology to address their communication problems. When VoIP first
started its services in America, it was then realized by technical
people handling the communication facilities of many business not
only in the U.S. but also in other countries of Europe that the
VoIP system has indeed the needed technical design to correct or
address communication overloads in trunk lines of many businesses.
Another good thing about the VoIP system that was observed by business
technical people is the fact that VoIP does not consume a large
segment of bandwidth to perform its operation. This efficiency of
the system leads to many owners of the different business establishment
in America to have VoIP as their choice for their incoming and outgoing
The process by which VoIP operated itself in the context of the
IP Identification system of the internet has given it some names
to most technical people as a broadband oriented communication system.
Well, this is technically true, for VoIP was indeed originally designed
an an internet tool to work or function best in the broadband environment
to afford the system super fast connectivity. And having done these,
VoIP is now even touted as the convergence connectivity communication,
where this kind of a communication tool will be made to have a convergence
of the communication and information tool into one system of application.
Aside from this type of appeal to most people, this broadband designed
communication and information tool was made to run in the most efficient
manner, thus making it the cheapest form of communication today.
Imagine having a three country video and audio conference with your
managers in just a simple and dirt cheap cost of 3 cents per minute,
can you believe that? Hard to believe, of course! But with VoIP,
it is a reality. If you will have to request the traditional telephone
companies to make it happen for you, they can of course do that,
but it will have to cost you a lot of dollars because to them making
a 3 country audio and video conferencing will involve a lot of equipments,
realigning their telephone channels, and a pretty lot more of technical
works which I can reckon, will cost you more than several grand
just for a minute of audio and video conferencing in 3 countries.
It would be a great idea if the VoIP facilities in the Philippines
can be expanded. This will be to the benefit of the general public.
The government in fact, should encourage VoIP to give the people
the cheapest available kind of communication tools, more especially
to the families of the Filipino workers working abroad.
Since the government concern is to look after the welfare of the
public, giving them the opportunity to cheaper kinds of communication
is a way of looking at their welfare. Look at the other Asian countries.
The people there are now enjoying low cost of communication brought
about by the VoIP. Why can’t the Filipino people have the
same benefits? Why is the government trying to give the run around
for VoIP companies willing to invest in the Philippines?
Of course, we do not know why. The only thing we know is that the
VoIP system of communication can help greatly the Filipino people,
because once VoIP can be made available to the public, then this
will be the only aspect of industry that can give the Filipino people
a real breathing spell from the ever rising cost of almost everything
in the Philippines.
