What is a SIP Address: V1 VoIP Shows You

V1 VoIP explains what a SIP address is, where it is and what it does for resellersA SIP address is a lot like an email address in that it also serves as a locator of the user. SIP addresses even look similar to email addresses. Like email addresses, they are comprised of two parts: a username, and a domain. For example, if your name was Tom, you might have the following identical SIP and email addresses:

Tom@awesomeness.com
SIP communication would be routed to Tom at his SIP address sip:tom@awesomeness.com as email would be sent to Tom at his Email address mailto:tom@awesomeness.com.

What a SIP Address Is

Your SIP address allows you to participate in SIP based communication over the Internet. SIP can be used to initiate a variety of communication formats ranging from a phone call to collaborative conferences over existing Internet connections without the need of traditional telephone services.

What makes SIP even more powerful is that it is personal like an email address. While a telephone number is registered to a specific device, a SIP address follows the person it belongs to. This gives SIP users access to new features that standard landline telephone services simply do not offer. With the increasing prevalence of Internet telephony in the corporate and consumer markets comes the gradual migration from the use of telephone numbers to the use of SIP addresses.

How to Get a SIP Address

The easiest way to obtain a SIP address is by creating an account with an online service. Like creating an email account with Google or Yahoo, you will be provided with an address (i.e. yourname@gmail.com or yourname@yahoo.com). However, your SIP service provider may allow you to create SIP addresses within your own domain as well (i.e. tom@awesomeness.com). As a SIP providers, we at V1 VoIP allow customers to use the registered domain name of their companies to create SIP addresses free of charge.

People using standard telephones can reach you on your SIP address, all you need is a regular telephone number which forwards to your address. If you want to call people who are using regular telephones, your SIP service needs the ability to call out to regular telephone numbers, and V1 VoIP can provide you with one or both of these services.

V1 VoIP Explains the History of H.323 Protocol

V1 VoIP explains the history of H.323 protocol and how it led to SIP protocols what they are used for and how they are differentVoIP technology is ever changing. While SIP has become one of the protocols V1 VoIP resellers see businesses ask for, there was a protocol that came first: H.323.

In 1995 as computer usage become more mainstream, researchers began looking for ways to exchange audio and video data between computers. H.323 came about first, becoming the accepted standard for audio and video communications in 1996. It was not until 1999 that SIP achieved similar commercial success; and by 2002, it became the official protocol, published under the name of RFC 3261.

SIP is rapidly becoming one of the most popular protocols by V1 VoIP resellers for business and VoIP users a like. But there is another protocol that originated before SIP: H.323. What exactly is H.323 and how does it differ from SIP you ask? Allow us at V1 VoIP to explain the difference.

Most VoIP protocols perform the same function, meaning users can rarely detect a difference. However each design is unique and thus possesses superiorities and/or inferiorities over others. For instance, H.323 uses binary while SIP ASCII.

To complement H.323 and SIP, another class, referred to as device control protocols, emerged before the new millennia. During this time, IT technicians redesigned IP interfaces to include components for both data over the internet and for audio signals on the PSTN. These devices, known as gateways, convert signals from one network into a form compatible with another, thus device control protocols like H.248 and MGCP are incredibly useful for unified communications.

While gateways still exist, H.248 and MGCP are no longer the only device control protocols on the market. H.323/H.248 are almost exclusively deals with long-haul communications—PSTN networks that encompass a large geographical distance. Although SIP now leads the industry, various media and codex protocols now play a role in audio and video communications while
other non-standard protocols have emerged through companies like Cisco, Microsoft and Google.

The Interactive Voice Response IVR Feature

V1 VoIP offers resellers an IVR or interactive Voice Response allows automated services for callers navigating through a VoIP systemFor V1 VoIP resellers, we offer an IVR or Interactive Voice Response which is quickly becoming a must-have for businesses.

IVRs are used to provide an automated service for calling customers. A great example of this is when you call a number are are asked to press one for one extension, two for another, etc. Another way to use voice recognition which lets customers speak in order to navigate through the automated system. Companies will usually give some options and will ask the customers to say a specific word such as ‘customer service’ to be connected to a live person. Other companies uses the voice recognition feature to perform telephone surveys, appointment reminders, or to determine if a cold call goes to voicemail.

The V1 VoIP IVR can connect to the hosted softswitch server and convert traditional land lines phone data into a codec that is supported by voip switch like GSM, G729, etc. The caller can then call the number, select the option that best suits his or her needs, and complete the call by imputing the access code plus the telephone number.

The V1 VoIP IVR is able to establish a connection with any type of VoIP gateway that uses the h323 protocol. There are a number of different approaches that can be used to connect with a particular producer’s gateway. One solution is to establish an h323 connection with the voip switch first. Once the channel is set up, V1 can then send out packets, compressed by g723.1 or any of the other types of g codec, directly to the proper gateway. This allows h323 devices like carrier class and SOHO gateways, as well as IP Phones to connect with the IP IVR system.

Gateways using PSTN interface, can also be configured to process all incoming calls to be transferred to a specific IP or DID number. More than likely, the call will be transferred to a voip switch that can then carry out the IVR request made by the customer. This gives a business that chooses to employ the use of the IP IVR system the flexibility of providing quick and instantaneous service for their customers. A large range of V1 VoIP products are compatible with IP IVR which means putting the system in place can give any business an advantage over the competition

To find out more about how you can offer your customers the great benefits of V1 VoIP’s IVR features, contact a representative from the V1 VoIP team today and ask about how offering your customers IVR services can increase your profits.
