3. Interoperability

Compatibility between VoIP equipment from different vendors is a very important aspect to boostrepparttar use of VoIP products. Without standardized quality of service mechanisms businesses would need to buy allrepparttar 143015 equipment andrepparttar 143016 QoS server fromrepparttar 143017 same manufacturer. The VoIP world seems to be divided between many vendors with reluctance to establish interoperability and some who are trying to be end-to-end supplier but atrepparttar 143018 same time worried about interoperability. The protocols used in VoIP communication are still considered fairly complex in comparison to most ofrepparttar 143019 other protocols involved in Internet applications. SIP (Session Initiation Protocol - a signaling protocol for Internet conferencing, telephony, events notification, and instant messaging), that is regarded as simple and elegantrepparttar 143020 other protocols, is still not efficient.

Onrepparttar 143021 bright side, however, SIP is approaching status as an IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) standard, after several years of work. Withrepparttar 143022 recent version, it has achieved a greater amount of stability and changes are becoming smaller and smaller. Phone switch companies such as Nortel have recently begun supporting SIP, and nowrepparttar 143023 manufacturers of handsets and related devices will soon ramp up their support. Motorola, Avaya, and Proxim have made collaboration onrepparttar 143024 creation and deployment of IP telephony solutions that will deliver new extents of communication mobility and network connectivity.

With these three VoIP aspects covered, businesses will be able to maximize their investment by applying it asrepparttar 143025 backbone of internal communication such as phone conversation, videoconferencing, instant messaging, faxing, etc. Another area that will widely make use of VoIP is call centers, in which Web contacts, virtual operations with outsourcers overseas, and remote sites, such as home agents, all could improverepparttar 143026 customer experience. New VoIP applications that we have not thought about may also come into existence asrepparttar 143027 services generates more business and profits for companies.
