V1 VoIP Never Hear a Busy Signal Again

Did you know that a busy signal is actually a call to action for a caller to hang up? Yep, and not only will they hang up but more than a quarter will not call back. If you are a business, can you afford to EVER have a customer, client, or sales agent ever hear a busy signal when they call you?

When it comes to businesses of all kinds, a busy signal is the worst experience you want your customers to have. But when your business talks to a V1 VoIP reseller, they will never have to hear a busy signal again. It’s a smart strategy to have in place so that during critical times, you don’t fail your customers.

A traditional plain old telephone system (POTS) line is a channel that could only host one call between two phones, with a busy signal happening if the line was already in use. It didn’t matter if the person calling in, out, or even dialing, it would be considered busy or ‘in use’.

V1 VoIP is powered by broadband internet and has no restrictions placed on the number of simultaneous calls that can be placed. When V1 VoIP services are applied to business phones, the capacity for simultaneous calls are much higher than with landline phones. A “line” on a VoIP phone line can handle multiple calls simultaneously.

These additional call slots are helpful, because they keep your callers from getting shafted due to line limits. They also eliminate the need for busy signals, since your VoIP phone will have the capacity to answer simultaneous calls without experiencing “overloaded” lines. Even better! Employees can have phone numbers forward to their mobile phones, so even during the busiest times, calls can be rerouted.

It’s hard to grow customer base and even more difficult to keep it. The last thing you need is for something so small and preventable as a busy signal to cost you business. With V1 VoIP services you can guarantee to never have customers hear a busy signal again.

On a typical day, your business might not experience the kind of call volume that will lead to busy signals. But there’s always the chance that your phone lines can get clogged, and you will definitely want communication services that can route and handle calls with efficiency and intelligence. Contact V1 VoIP today or sign up now to learn how to get rid of busy signals at your company forever!

Are VoIP Calls the Same as Skype Ones?

Can I keep my phone number is the first question without fail, that V1 VoIP reseller customers always ask. But right after that, comes questions about call quality and whether or not it will stay the same once the switch to VoIP is made. If you’ve ever made a Skype call, you can understand why the question of call quality is asked. VoIP and Skype may use similar technologies to make phone calls over the Internet, but the respective voice quality of each solution differs significantly from the other.

Thankfully, with V1 VoIP providing services and solutions to resellers, you do not have to worry. V1 VoIP is designed to far surpass landline telephones and real-time communications apps in terms of voice quality.

Skype requires the same amount of bandwidth as a VoIP call, but the voice quality still differs. Skype implements the respected Opus audio codec, but the Skype network was not built to be undersubscribed bandwidth wise. Even though the “recommended” client side bandwidth for a Skype call is the same as a VoIP call, the call quality will suffer because of Skype’s own bandwidth limitations.

When on Skype and the call quality deteriorates, you are not dealing with a flawed design, but a limited network infrastructure that cannot provide dedicated service to millions of anonymous individuals. This is one of the key issues that V1 VoIP attempts to rectify. The average VoIP call takes the same amount of bandwidth as a Skype call does (100 kpbs) and yet still sounds of higher quality. V1 VoIP creates separate real-time networks and partner with Tier-1 Internet companies to ensure the highest bitrate possible.

In general, Skype and business VoIP are using comparable audio codecs, both of which are capable of wideband voice quality. But Skype’s network holds its voice quality back. And this is not just a voice quality issue, because Skype is more likely than business VoIP to outright drop calls in the case of severe packet loss, whereas business VoIP companies often make eradication of dropped calls a supreme priority.

If you’re fearful that switching to VoIP services will diminish the quality of your calls, fear not! The only thing your co-workers will notice is a crisper and clearer sound.
