Business organizations have traditionally
separated their voice and data networks, doubling the cost of equipment
and maintenance, support staff and training. However, voice over IP
networks is being increasingly used by Individual and Corporate users.
With IP telephony, it is possible to remove the costly PBX and replace it
with a voice and data gateway implementing IP Telephony. Now a days, most
routers that are used with data networks are coming with voice capability.
By using appropriate gateway, voice and data can be multiplexed and
carried together without the need for a separate voice carrier. This in
turn reduces the equipment, maintenance, and running costs significantly.
Typical applications include Central office and branch office
communications, call centers, and remote communications.
Benefits of IP
Significant reduction in the cost
compared to discrete voice and data networks.
Reduction in the maintenance, support
and training of personnel associated with voice and data networks
Unified messaging using state of the art
Better return on investment
Increased functionality with value added
services such as SMS, and others.
