How much bandwidth does voip use
Unlike old business phone systems that ran on traditional landlines, today's systems have moved to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology. VoIP systems are Internet-based and run on the same connections companies use to get online. Phone systems are available as on-premises and cloud-hosted solutions. With on-premises systems, your IT staff needs to install and maintain the private branch exchange (PBX) equipment. Conversely, cloud-hosted solutions require very little IT resources since all of the PBX equipment is housed and maintained by the phone system provider. With the cloud-hosted option, IT teams focus more of their attention on managing the system's features, rather than the infrastructure. Today's systems are compatible with mobile phones and tablets and integrate with popular business solutions such as Outlook and Salesforce. Pricing is based on the number of users and usually don't require long-term contracts. Most systems are compatible with newer IP phones, however … [Read more...] about Business Phone Services: Best Picks and Buying Guide 2018
At Macworld 2007 Steve Jobs pulled the original iPhone from his pocket, held it up high above the stage, and showed off the app launcher-based Home screen... that's pretty much remained the same ever since. That's not entirely true, of course. Apple quickly added the ability to create WebClip icons for websites, and to re-arrange and delete them. With iOS 2 (iPhone OS 2) they added native apps to that mix. They increased the number of Home pages. They added Spotlight. They added wallpaper. With iOS 4 they layered in the multitasking fast app switcher. They layered in folders. The iPad, and the iPad alone, got landscape Home screen support. With iOS 5 they layered in Notification Center and Siri. Is it time for something more? Familiarity is a feature To a casual user -- someone who only makes calls, plays music, takes photographs, and runs the occasional app -- the iPhone today works almost exactly as it did back in 2007. Just like a casual Mac OS X user can ignore the Terminal, iOS … [Read more...] about iOS 6: Is it time for Apple to revamp the Home screen?
Several months ago, the GSM Association conducted a survey assessing how much people paid for LTE service and determined that customers in the US were paying as much as 10 times what other people were paying in other countries. At the time, there was only one major player with LTE service, Verizon Wireless.Now, all four major carriers in the US, plus a host of regional and local carriers have LTE service available in one way or another. Much of the developed markets are in the same boat. Emerging markets like India are also coming along as well.But how much do people pay and for what? The answers may surprise you in some cases and certainly other answers will appear obvious. We decided to take a look at what it costs to run a smartphone in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, South Africa, India and Australia and plot the costs as it relates to what people get in terms of data. For our readers in South America, we did not plot the rates for Vivo in Brazil … [Read more...] about Who pays what for how much? Rates examined in US, Canada, UK, Germany and more
A lot of people and a lot of businesses were cheering the FCC’s predictable 3-to-2 vote to classify the internet as a utility, and thus apply Title II regulations which govern traditional telecommunications services. The dawn of net neutrality is at hand, or so say the proponents.I can forgive a lot of the younger folks not understanding what Title II enables the FCC to do. These regulations were written and implemented in the 1930s, signed into law as the Communications Act of 1934 when telephones were the leading edge of consumer technology. That was only 81 years ago, surely those provisions will be an easy application to 21st century technology where a lot people do not know what a dial-tone is, or a step-switch, or a twisted pair.The older folks though? Do you really need to be reminded of the absolute tangle traditional telecom services are to this day due to the absolute maze of federal and state regulations? You know, those rules that dictate how service is provided, … [Read more...] about FCC won’t force all of Title II “net neutrality” regulations on carriers, but “we don’t know where things go next”
