The Packet8 VOIP is unlike any other type of VOIP communication solution on the market today. With the Packet8 VOIP, you can use your high-speed Internet connection to complete both voice and video communication. Best of all it is easy to use and affordable. Unlike some of the other VOIP options, Packet8 VOIP was designed specifically for the consumer.
To use Packet8 VOIP service all you have to do is pick up the phone, listen for the dial tone and then dial the number you want. For incoming calls you would notice no difference; the phone rings the same as before. The great thing about the Packet8 VOIP solution is that you do not have to mess with any other numbers, there are no special processes to go through and you talk on the phone, not your computer.
If you have a private intranet for your business, you have the advantage of controlling things so you have a voice quality that is almost perfect to toll-quality. For the Internet you still have the benefit of many controls with the exception of latency. However working with your ISP, latency can be used to enhance the voice quality.
With Packet8 VOIP during times when the network is extra busy you can choose to give voice priority over data. This means that you can manage the high consistency of quality simply by using the Differentiated Services Quality of Service protocol. To enhance the voice quality further, you can use the bad frame interpolation, dynamic jitter buffers and forward error correction.
Remember, whether using Packet8 VOIP or another VOIP service, this type of technology uses very little bandwidth, making it efficient and cost effective. The standards for voice compression such as G.729, which is 8:1 and G.723 being 10:1, these are used as a means of minimizing the bandwidth that is needed for voice traffic. The great thing about Packet8 VOIP and others is that even if you are using the maximum level of compression the quality will still come out near perfect toll-quality.
Typically 14K bps of bandwidth is perfect per call, which includes the compressed voice packet and IP overhead. If you need to determine the amount of VOIP bandwidth for your business per location, you can take the number of VOIP channels that are used and simply multiple them by 14K bps. This number is then doubled to cover the amount of bandwidth needed for voice and data traffic.
With the Packet8 VOIP solution, you will enjoy many benefits such as easy installation and use, low risk, a scalable solution and a huge cost savings.
