The convenience of communication has taken a huge leap forward ever since the world was introduced to the Internet. One of its major aspects that we all take for granted is the VoIP Telephony feature of almost every single device that we own. Let’s face it only a handful of us really knows the in’s and out of this particular technology. Now let me take you a little bit deeper to give you an insight of what it’s really about.
The inner works of VoIP
Voice over Internet Protocol has come a long way since it was originally conceptualized around 1973. A company was conducting experiments on Network Voice Protocol at the time but has very success over the matter. It was not until around 1995 that the first Internet Phone Software was created. They were able to compress & transmit voice signals to digital packets provided that it will originate and be received by the same type of hardware & software. Nevertheless, the 1st actual VoIP Telephony feature was on its merry way.
Communication at its peak
Nowadays you can simply pick up your phone and call your friend in Paris. Well, you have to get a good network reception or a coffee shop that has free wifi to do so. It wouldn’t require much effort from your part to do just that. Talk to your grandparents or someone who still has a full grasp of what standard mail is, and they’ll tell you that when you try to talk to someone that far away it’ll take months for your letters to be received and another couple of months before you receive a response. You’d think that your grandparents have gone senile telling you that story, but that is how it was back then. Now it’s like sending a text and waiting for a whole minute for a response and we are already livid.
What we use and what is offered
We have a vast amount of applications to choose from on how we want to communicate. Such as Skype, Viber, Google Duo, Messenger, Whatsapp, and the up-and-coming Discord to name a few. Most of these are free and easy enough to use. Chances are if you haven’t been living in a rock for the past few decades you’ve at least heard or used these applications.
Peace of mind
Why spend hours, days, or weeks pondering how you’ll get your network up and running. When there are hundreds if not more companies that take care of that for you so wouldn’t have to. Not an easy task, but making sure that the seamless integration of technology to your business is handled, is a Far Out Solutions way of ensuring your business has one less thing to worry about.
