Using Voice over IP ( or VoIP )is a challenge for companies in Des Plaines, Illinois. At Prime Telecommunications we believe that we can help organizations, both large and small in Des Plaines, Illinois. Since 1993, we have helped Chicago businesses with their technology to improve reliability, avoid obsolescence and unexpected high costs.
Insufficient quality of service plagues many VoIP implementations because voice traffic must be transformed into data packets before it can be sent. We already experience packet-loss in our day-to-day interactions, but the difference is that packet-loss through email isn’t very noticeable when compared with voice traffic. When sending an email, packet- loss results in a slightly delayed email. However, packet loss during a VoIP phone call results in choppy, low quality phone calls.
This is an area of frustration for many companies that use VoIP but it has a simple solution. Utilize an IP provider that has the capability to give VoIP packets priority through their quality of service mechanism. If IT personnel have the tools necessary to view, analyze, monitor and control this traffic this issue can be curtailed rather easily.
In order to ensure the proper implementation of a VoIP system, one must seek the expertise of a professional unified communications provider. While providers vary greatly in technical aptitude, there are a few subtle differentiators to consider before making a selection. Providers who deploy sophisticated remote bandwidth management tools take the necessary steps to ensure that that they are doing their due diligence, and that the phone system will function properly when installed. Furthermore, AT&T recently announced their support of the Federal Communications Commission inquiry for the United States to transition from circuit- switched legacy network to broadband and IP-based communications. As with anything new, we face several challenges in overcoming the learning curve, but the benefits of VoIP far outweigh the potential risks. Business owners are interested in increasing profitability, enhancing productivity and supplying themselves with a competitive advantage and VoIP enables them to do just that.
