Is On Premises IP-PBX Fading Away?

One school of thought strongly believes that on premises IP-PBX is on a decline-mode and is gradually fading away into oblivion. While one set of experts is of the opinion that the on-premise VoIP is on the way to oblivion (due to competition from the hosted VoIP), others do not agree with it.

They are of the opinion that future of VoIP is with cloud computing when it comes to long term. When it comes to offering services suitable for short term or midterm, on premises IP-PBX is and will always be the best option, with no competitor in the fore ground.

Hosted Sells More

If one goes by the recent reports, the use of hosted VoIP and its sales all over the world has increased substantially. If the experts are to be believed and banked upon, on premises IP-PBX is likely to get an uptick too, when the rest of the existing TDM systems will be replaced with highly advanced IP solutions. This is particularly true in the global mid-market, along with organizations that are
looking forward to adopt open standard-based platforms.

A lot of business will keep on continuing with the in-house platforms or hybrid systems. However, not all business will opt for the OpEx subscription route, with vendors offering both cloud based solutions and standalone solutions that serve on premises IP-PBX customers.

Advantage On Premises IP-PBX

When it comes to supporting on premises IP-PBX solutions, there is so much to tell about this mode of communication. OpEx-based subscription pricing is the most logical mode of pricing for the technologies that change at a brisk pace. At the same time there are certain firms that are not always willing to pay a sizeable amount of premium for the advantage of OpEx along with constant upgrade of the features. For a lot of enterprises, the total lower cost of on-premise VoIP really makes sense and as a result of this, they still tilt towards on premises IP-PBX, kicking up its popularity by a considerable extent.

Besides, in case of on premises IP-PBX system, the IP-PBX equipment as well as the phones are set up and connected to the LAN. This means the users are able to own, administer as well as maintain all the related software and equipment. This also indicates that the users always have a superior control over their investment. Besides, they will also have a much better control over updates as well as security. Also, with the on-site technology, users are quickly able to address issues and outrages.

Besides, with enhanced customization, applications, system specification, and the configuration details can be comprehensively customized, something that is quite difficult in case of pre-packaged hosted solutions.

On premises IP-PBX solution needs a one-time capital outlay, something that is very lucrative, even for the startup companies. An on-premise network solution should ideally need only a one-time capital outlay. Once that is done, the only recurring expenses that are needed are cost of maintenance and upgrades. Thus, with so many advantages, the on-premises VoIP is always going to stay here and its future looks extreme bright and prosperous.

Simple Steps To Optimize Voice Quality

VoIP based communication systems are quite often plagued by glitches relating to choppy or poor voice quality. This is one problem that is caused by a number of reasons and users of VoIP based communication system are always at the top of their toes to solve this issue that quite frequently leave a bad taste in their mouth. Let us look into some simple solutions, which will help overcome this very common and frequent problem.

Let us look into some of simplest solutions to make the voice quality of your VoIP based service better.

Change the P2P settings

Most of the IPs provides a much superior rate of downloading than the same for uploading. This is vital, as the quality of voice in a conversation on Skype or any other VoIP based service is directly dependent on this uploading capabilities. Again, when it comes to downloading things from the P2P (peer-to-peer) networks, there is a bit if uploading as well. Thus, poor rate of uploading always causes delays, and at times, even distortion, in conversation.

Check the Wireless Networks for Conflicts

At times, the performance of the wireless network might not be up to the mark, or at least meet your expectations. If that is the case, it is definitely the quality of the wireless network that is being used, which might be responsible. The event of a wireless network conflict, the quality of the network needs to be checked.

One very frequent and common problem that the users face with the WIFI set ups, more so in the urban areas is using a channel that is well saturated. WIFI uses radio waves, and a sizeable number of other networks running on identical frequency. This may at times result in a slow connection and poor VoIP conversation.

Ensure Security Of The Wireless Network

This is one of the most pertinent issues that need to be taken into consideration. You need to make sure that the wireless network that is being used is absolutely safe and secured. You need to make sure that as and when you use the network, your neighbor is using all the uploading capacity of your system without you even knowing about it. There is nothing wrong in sharing the internet access with the rest of your community, but when it comes to making high quality phone calls over Internet, you need to make sure that you have risen to the occasion and have raised your shields, by accessing the configuration tools of the router and properly enable the WPA encryption.

Check Volume Levels

If every other issue has been fixed, and you are still facing the trouble, it might very well be the volume levels of the computer. Check the volume levels ensure that the microphone is loud enough so that the voice is audible and clear. Though all these are very trivial issues, still there is no harm in checking after all.

Maintain all these norms to make sure that the voice quality is simply something that everyone will admire.
