Back then, I was traveling a lot to the UK and France and wanted to have access in both directions to my incoming calls and voice mail messages, as well as have the ability to return calls using GrandCentral from Europe when I was using an unlocked phone, a local SIM, without international roaming or long distance calls, and also keeping it easy for my clients, colleagues and friends to reach me easily.So, after suggesting the interop to both Craig Walker…

  • How Organizations Can Walk the Walk on Children's Online Privacy

    17 Apr 2014 | 9:05 am
    One year after the FTC gave the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) regulatory teeth, many companies remain myopically focused on the law-at the expense of genuinely robust privacy protections for children. Real privacy protection occurs when a company genuinely cares about children's rights and bases important decisions on privacy considerations as it architects its products and conducts its business.

    Every contact center today understands the "Telephone Consumer Protection Act," or TCPA.

With WebRTC in the guts of the services we’re now seeing just what WebRTC can deliver, and when one hears how much brighter the audio is, and sees how crisp video is it’s not hard to believe that only ten years ago services like SightSpeed were pioneering laptop/desktop video and Skype was just entering the game.

    Whenever I hear rumblings about the traditional landline’s demise, I am reminded of one of the opening scenes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. In plague-ridden medieval England, a man with a cart is exhorting people to bring out their dead. A fellow carrying a person who is clearly alive is trying to have…The post Bring Out Your POTS – Or, the Slow Death of Traditional Phone Service appeared first on Beyond Bandwidth.

  • Got VoIP? Is it Secure?

    Tony
    31 Mar 2014 | 8:29 am
    Telephone security has always been a concern, especially for companies and government agencies that routinely use telephone calls for exchanging sensitive information. On the corporate side, industrial espionage is very real and some of your competitors will stop at nothing to learn your trade secrets. Before the age of VoIP, listening in on phone calls required physical access to the PBX or the phone line. On the upside, simple physical security protocols could prevent most incidents. On the downside though, once those physical barriers were penetrated, access was very simple. However,…
  • Sentiment in Telecom – Number Porting

    Calum
    22 Mar 2014 | 6:27 pm
    For whatever reason, many people display a high level of sentimental behavior towards objects or other living beings, while others place very little value in anything physical. It has been suggested by some that it is a physiological response resulting from a certain kind of brain structure when more neuron-rich tissue inhabits the orbitofrontal cortex. Others believe it is developed from life experiences making it a socially constructed behavior. Whatever the case may be, it is a trait some many experience to varying degrees. This mentality can be applied to nearly any kind of object,…
  • A Bubblin’ Crude: How VoIP Changed the Oil Business

    Dan Blacharski
    15 Mar 2014 | 11:48 am
    Conventional communications just don’t work very well in harsh environments like remote deep-water oil rigs or on board a giant oil tanker, where the environment is harsh and the options are limited. The climate surrounding an Ultra Deep Water (UDW) rig can be brutal, and easy availability of communication means that a critical lifeline can be in place – both to manage the operational side of the business, and to allow the crew to stay in constant touch with loved ones back on dry land. There’s no disputing that it’s hard work in a very dangerous environment, and one of the biggest…
  • Setting the Bar for Hosted VoIP

    Andy
    8 Mar 2014 | 6:58 pm
    Among the many VoIP providers in the market, a vast array of different qualities can be found. For example, some services produce a genuinely natural sound for a phone conversation because a company placed a great deal of attention to details within a system. When executed correctly, VoIP is like listening to an album on vinyl in pristine condition. Though we live in a digital age, some people swear by analog technology for a number of reasons. In the case of many audiophiles, it is commonly believed that newer technologies don’t replicate sound exactly. Depending on the amount of…
  • Death of Telco?

    Dan Blacharski
    28 Feb 2014 | 5:43 pm
    It seems as though every month some thought leader on technology or the telecom industry will generate a piece about how it is the end of times for the old Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). The fact that VoIP has become a new standard for transmitting voice and beyond is regularly broadcast across the internet. It’s a well-known fact that both organizations and regular consumers can benefit from taking advantage of communications beyond a traditional phone bonded to an office desk. At one time, the cordless telephone was a pinnacle of communication technology. This granted people…
