Taming the demand for IP telephony

TeleWareTo measure the attractiveness and trust in voice over IP (VoIP) as both a business solution and as a technology, Island Telecom conducted an independent survey of hosted connections across many of the key players in the UK’s convergence market.

The results show that there are currently 71,350 users of IP telephony hosted services.

With 25,000-plus hosted users on the TeleWare Hosted Service platform, and 10 years of experience in providing hosted solutions to business, TeleWare believes it is lack of completeness of many of the offerings in the market that is slowing VoIP market growth.

The availability of resellers able to provide an end-to-end solution for the customer and understand the deployment issues is also key – and reseller accreditation is needed to ensure that business customers are being well served.

Cost savings

In a market where ‘free’ VoIP is being continually bandied around in the press, it is not surprising that there is an attitude that the solution is not business-ready.

TeleWare, through a trained network of partners, provides IP telephony hosted solutions that can replace the use of a traditional PBX onsite, using IP virtual private networks (VPNs) to transport the traffic.

This reduces capital expenditure and enables businesses to grow without having to worry about upgrading or replacing their PBX. It also provides carrier grade resilience without the need to make resilient design decisions and cope with the related cost penalties.
