Router: A network device that stores and forwards packets.

Sampling: A method used to measure and encode analogue signals into a digital format.

There are many options for those entering the VoIP reseller market. Here V1 VoIP discusses a few of those options so you can decide which one will work best for you and your reseller goals.

Spend Huge Amounts of Money
If you’re not interested in becoming a V1 VoIP reseller, you might be in for a rude awakening. It costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to invest in your own VoIP server platform, and it’s not an easy route to take. But don’t forget about the staff of technical experts who can launch it, maintain it, as well as stay ahead of the curve for software and hardware updates. They will also stay one step ahead of hackers looking to bring you down.

This expensive option is not for the business safe-player, and needs to be understood it could be years before you actually make any money. Considering the small number of “techies” out there who have actual experience with VoIP, and the fact that you could invest a lot in their training only to have them move on to a larger company once you’ve provided the training that improved their resume.

Become a V1 VoIP reseller
As a V1 VoIP reseller, we have taken the money and the guess work out of the equation for you. As a ‘reseller’ you become a valued sales agent of our company. You set your own profit margins, offer the products, services and solutions you want. You can decide this on a client by client basis or focus on the items you feel most familiar and comfortable with. The decision is all yours.

By becoming a V1 VoIP reseller you avoid the upfront costs of investing in your own platform because you have ours at your disposal. At the touch of your fingertips you have access to our state of the art and proprietary back end VoIP Portal, which gives you instant ability to set tariffs, port numbers, add features and so much more.

White label Your Business
Want to start resell V1 VoIP services, but under your own company name, logo and colors? V1 VoIP offers a complete white label solution to our resellers. With this private label option, your customers see your name and yours only. Unlike other companies, V1 VoIP does not look to poach our own reseller customers.

V1 VoIP Resellers Opportunity to Make Unlimited Money

V1 VoIP gives resellers the opportunity to make money start their own company or business and be own bossBusinesses are purchasing VoIP service and products in record numbers, which means the demand for VoIP providers is on the rise. V1 VoIP allows you to become a VoIP provider in a matter of minutes by becoming a V1 reseller.

As a V1 VoIP Reseller, you have the opportunity to offer our world class VoIP services along with all of the other products you currently offer. You can do what you do best while gaining the ability to provide a total, turnkey solution to your customers. V1 VoIP esellers have the ability to mark-up our prices to set their own margins, sell in their own brand name with our white label solutions, integrate with their existing services if they have them, and resell them to customers anywhere in the world.

Your customers will each have access to an online account management area where they will be able to see details of their recent calls and the calling funds that they have in place. Most importantly, these customer control panels will be branded with your company name, so your customers will not be aware of V1 VoIP. You will manage the commercial and technical relationship with your customers.

Unlike other VoIP providers who make promises that they are one thing and turn out to be another, V1 VoIP is not a commission-based program or a franchise. Some commission-based programs offer you a small percentage of your customers calling revenue. V1 VoIP does NOT work like that. Instead we leave you free to charge any rates to your customers and, as a result, your opportunity to profit is much greater.

Since the invention of the telephone, telephone companies have had a monopoly on providing telephone service. Consequently, costs remained high while customer satisfaction remained low. This has led to a situation that creates a great opportunity for you: “people love to hate their local telephone company.” That’s why so many businesses and residences are making the switch to VoIP. And you can profit off that by becoming a V1 VoIP reseller.

V1 VoIP Prepaid Pinless Calling Cards for Holiday Season

V1When many people think of the holiday season they think of visiting with family, presents and seasonal food. Businesses think of the money spent on gifts, travel, and well, food. But for those of us in the VoIP industry, we think of long distance and international calls made to loved ones that they cannot be with.

Every holiday season, voice traffic spikes due to the increasing number of people calling internationally. For many that look for gifts for their loved ones in other countries, international airtime in prepaid VoIP calling cards is an attractive alternative to money remittance or in kind gifting.

Here are some holiday trends that we have observed at V1 VoIP during the past few holiday seasons that we hope help you setup your VoIP business strategy for this season.

In VoIP, Christmas comes early.

The holiday season no longer begins on December 1st. In 2014, Kmart started its holiday commercial in early September, with many others soon following. Getting those holiday dollars is the main goal. Starting your prepaid VoIP calling card holiday campaign earlier is a considerable advantage because consumers hear about your promotions before the holidays. You want shoppers picking up international and long distance minutes for calling cards before the holidays so they can give them as gifts and use them come Christmas. December 26 is too late.

Cyber Shopping is Key

Who wants to deal with the crowds, stampedes of shoppers, and danger of getting trampled in person at the mall? Cyber Monday–the Monday after Thanksgivin–is now the biggest online shopping day of the year. Make sure businesses in your line of site are ready for shoppers to call in and place orders. E-retailers should have their VoIP businesses in place with call centers and toll free phone numbers long in advance of Cyber Monday.

Calling Cards as Stocking Stuffers

Stocking stuffers used to be solely about size, as in, what will actually fit in a stocking. But giving a prepaid VoIP calling card is not only the perfect size, but also extremely useful. With V1 VoIP’s prepaid pinless calling card technology, you can produce a top calling card that can be used for international calling, account recharge or international mobile top up.

Are you thinking about the holiday season in summertime? If you are interested in starting a long distance or international prepaid calling card or PINless service, contact a member of the V1 VoIP team today.

V1 VoIP Explains The Difference Between Termination and Standard VoIP

difference between voip terminations and standard voipIn the world of VoIP “call termination” is a phrase that is used to define the process whereby telephone calls are directed from one phone service provider to another service provider. The term is most often used to describe a VoIP phone call that is terminated through the use of public switched telephone network services (PSTN). In this case, the VoIP termination services are generally marketed as an individual commodity. The opposite of call termination (VoIP to PSTN) is “call origination” (PSTN to VoIP).

V1 VoIP as the termination provider takes the responsibility to convert packets into actual voice in order to facilitate communication. The users of the service would then be billed and the provider profits from the difference that is paid to the main VoIP service provider.

VoIP Termination Services
The entire structure of modern communications is rapidly being taken over by VoIP termination services. This is in stark contrast to VoIP as it appeared in the mid-90s. As business and residential use is gaining acceptance, improvements in VoIP technology have made it a desirable replacement for PSTN. Most of this can be related to the prevalence of high speed Internet connections.

As a leading VoIP service provider V1 VoIP offers services such as: VoIP reseller programs, VoIP termination facilities, wholesale VoIP carrier services and VoIP termination business plans. These services can also be customized to meet the needs of individual clients.

For example, wholesale call termination services can be provided to those who wish to operate on a bigger scale than a VoIP reseller. Here, VoIP minutes are purchased in bulk and the resellers are usually the primary clients. V1 offers complete termination rates to our customers for every country on the globe. The actual call rates will usually determine which service provider is chosen by the reseller or wholesaler. Cheaper rates and/or better quality will usually prompt a switch to a different service. But in many cases, better quality will take precedence over cheaper rates.

VoIP service quality is determined by factors such as: Average Success Ratio (ASR), Average Call Duration (ACD) and Post Duration Delay (PDD). A good average success ratio should hover be a minimum of 40-50% with the preference of over 60%. The post duration delay should be no more than three to four seconds with a preference of below two seconds.

The Benefits of VoIP Termination Services
V1 VoIP termination services have become more widespread in the business community for a number of reasons. First of all, there can be a huge savings when it comes to phone bills. But even more importantly, VoIP options can increase a businesses’ competitive edge over its competition. This edge can be realized through direct communications with dealers, suppliers in addition to global client contact. A corporation may achieve this through inexpensive international and long distance calls. Standard PSTN calls would add up to a much greater expense when attempting to match this type of call volume.

Additionally, inter-office calls can be made at no additional charge within a VoIP network. Continual free phone communication between company departments can be made despite the physical location of those departments. This connectivity is perfect for those companies with office locations in different parts of the world. All of this is indicative of changes in the way business is conducted. For example, conferences are typical in any corporation. VoIP has eliminated the need to fly great distances in order to attend a conference through the use of VoIP video conferencing. This is just one advantage of VoIP over PSTN.

Finally, VoIP termination offers the advantage of securing DID numbers for organizations that operate from more than one country. A DID number is an independent area code number. This means that a client may call you without knowing that that they are making an overseas call. Your client will only be charged for a local call. This particular feature is especially advantageous for call center operations who are unable to set up their own independent VoIP systems.

V1 VoIP Conference Bridge for Resellers

V1 VoIP offers conference bridges to add multiple callers to one dial virtual meeting room through hosted pbxWhen V1 VoIP resellers are offering services to businesses, a highly requested service is the ability to conference bridge. For businesses with large staff or those with workers over multiple locations, conference bridges are a must. A conference bridge allows a group of people to participate in phone call. The most common form of bridge allows participants to dial into a virtual meeting room from their own phone. Meeting rooms can hold dozens or even hundreds of participants.

Conferencing systems typically support multiple conference rooms, each of which can contain multiple participants, with the total number of rooms and participants varies depending on the model, hardware capabilities and licensing terms.

Most conference bridge systems allow the administrator to assign DID numbers to conference rooms.  In some cases as single DID number connects callers with an IVR application that prompts for a room number. Conference rooms can optionally be secured by a PIN number.  Some systems use a common PIN for all participants while others use custom PINs for each.

Advanced conferencing systems include a graphical user interface that allows all participants to see who is currently speaking and optionally who has joined the conference.  Admnistrators and moderators generally have a more comprehensive view that includes advanced controls.

V1 VoIP Conference Bridge Features:
Conferencing allows companies to save significantly on travel costs.  In-person meetings are costly and time consuming.  A conference bridge system can pay for itself in just one avoided “on-site” meeting.

Conferencing is the core of collaboration and enables distributed or virtual teams.  Combined with VoIP connectivity for remote workers, conferencing makes it simple and affordable for a team to function across a diverse geography.

Asterisk As A Conference Bridge
Asterisk includes a standard application called ConfBridge.  ConfBridge is a high definition-capable conference bridge component that makes it easy to build stand-alone conferencing services or to integrate conferencing into other solutions, including IP PBX systems.

Are your business clients asking for services like this? Make their meetings go smoother. Contact V1 VoIP today to be able to offer them conference bridge functionality.
