QoS VoIP Integration
Voice over Internet Protocol or VoIP is considered today as the
wonder boy of modern communication. It has all the qualities and
functions to bring your business to the 21 century in terms of
communication application technology. Speed, voice quality, modern
day communication like video and audio conferencing, VoIP has it
all at give-away cost to businessmen.
Since VoIP is digitalized, it is indeed far superior to the analog
system that is used by telephone companies. Digital signals are
not subject to interference while analog signals are. In connectivity,
VoIP has a faster connection because of the super fast broadband
speed of the internet. On the other hand, you will find long distance
calls made through traditional telephone as sometimes wanting for
a speedier connection because of the individual speed capacities
of the differing telephone carrier companies where your signals
will have to pass through.
All the features that your traditional phone has, your VoIP phone
also offers and with additional features that your traditional phone
cannot simply afford to give you. What I am referring to is the
video and audio 3-way conferencing that your VoIP system can give
you. If you will request for this kind of service from your traditional
telephone company, you will find it quite hard for them to give
you one, but still, they can arrange it at astronomical figures
which surely, I will hazard to guess, you simply cannot afford to
pay. With VoIP, it is free! Where else can you get a communication
system like this one?
And the cost! Have you ever think how much can you save with a
VoIP phone compared to a traditional phone? Just consider that a
one minute long distance call with a traditional telephone company
will cost you not less than 40 cents. With a VoIP, a one minute
long distance call will only cost you 3 centavos! If you happen
to call long distance everyday, how much do you think can you save
in a year? Not much, or very very much?
And still, to top it all, you can call long distance free of charge
with a VoIP. All that you have to do if you already have a VoIP
connection, is to ask your relatives and friends abroad to change
to VoIP phones and to choose their VoIP provider company with the
same provider company that you have. You see, if you have the same
VoIP provider company with your relative or friends in other countries,
you can have long distance calls with them without any charges.
You can call long distance and talk with your friends and relatives
all day without worrying about the cost
as it is totally free.
So, there you have it, the advantages that you can get from having
a VoIP connection.
Now, let me tell you that indeed, VoIP has still some quirks that
need to be addressed since it is a new kid in town. Although these
can be minors in case these bugs might surface during the course
of your call, you can just as easily get over with it. In fact there
are now some new programs and application just developed to address
these quirks, as some may call it. One of these new applications
is the QoS. This kind of application has two main purpose in terms
of your VoIP internet usage.
First, the QoS will protect your VoIP application from your different
shared media in the Internet. Second, it will prioritize your VoIP
to come first from other activities your shared internet connection
It would then be very beneficial for somebody who is using his
or her broadband internet connection for other application besides
VoIP. The reason for this is that once your broadband connection
has several applications running and somebody is calling your VoIP,
there are chances that that somebody will not be able to readily
access your number because of the other running application.
If you have an QoS in place, you will have no problem because
your QoS will then give priority to your VoIP so that your In-coming
call will be put through. Actually, QoS will act as some form of
a traffic policeman that will regulate your broadband traffic in
favor of your VoIP.
The advantages of QoS will be in many forms that you might not
be able to detect, but the smooth flow of your information retrieval
plus the non-congestion of your internet work will likely become
more managed, to include your VoIP communication application. Another
thing good about the QoS is its low cost. You see, everything about
VoIP is cheap, to include miscellaneous items for its proper functioning.
So, why not considering getting one if you have already an VoIP
system of communication? It is cheap and it can better manage your
Internet flow of information and communication.
