The Landline Offifially Dead to Millenials

Comedian Iliza Schlesinger released her new comedy special on Netlix called “Elder Millenial”. At 35, she begins by discussing things that kids of an ever-so-slightly younger generation do not understand. One joke she says ina witches voice: “Gather round the Snapchat children and I will tell you the legend of the landline.

It is official, the landline is a thing of the past. To this next generation of millenials time of death has been called. It is a relic that if you are under 30 you hear about in past tense because you were not there to experience it. Like boomboxes, the discman, and beepers. Sure, they are still areound, but hard to find and pieces of iconography of a time gone.

If you are still dbating about switching to VoIP the time is now. Landline users are on a technology that is already on its way out. Those graduating from high school this year do not know a world without social media. Do you think any of them talk on a house phone? No. Do you think once they integrate into the professional world they will want to be landlocked? No.

Besides, there’s a good chance landlines will be obsolete by then anyway.

Do NOT wait any longer to have your customers join the world of VoIP contact V1 VoIP today or sign up now to resell our services in the Landline community.

Lowest e911 Rates for Canada by V1 VoIP

V1 VoIP offers lowest complete e911 emergency call rates voip coverage in Canada

For our Canadian resellers and their Canada VoIP customers, V1 VoIP has stood up to meet their needs in the time of emergencies.

Many VoIP customers have ‘basic 911’ service which puts them in touch with a call center that takes down their address and contacts the closest emergency response center. Rather than have an address come up to a 911 responder or however their geographic location is defined, VoIP phone users are identified with their IP address. If calls are disconnected, the VoIP provider gives the customer’s last known address on file. However if using the enhanced e911 services provided by V1 VoIP, enhanced 911 service sends location information on customers directly to emergency services.

The Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission; the Canadian equivalent of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (CRTC) made a ruling in April 2005, that all VoIP providers must provide 911 emergency service.

V1 VoIP’s enhanced e911 solution provides nationwide E911 coverage in both the United States and Canada. Voice service providers simply need to establish a SIP trunk to V1 VoIP’s emergency services network. Customers can update and validate their locations in real-time using V1 VoIP’s provisioning interface, which can be incorporated directly into the VSP’s website. When 911 is dialed, V1 VoIP’s Emergency Routing Service delivers the call to the appropriate PSAP based on the caller’s registered location, ensuring that the correct location data and callback number appear on the dispatcher’s screen.

Contact V1 VoIP now to learn more about our incredible low rates and coverage for e911 for all of Canada as well as the United States.

News: VoIP Services Have Not Yet Hit Their Peak

While global carriers are increasingly focusing on emerging over-the-top (OTT) and data opportunities, they must not forget traditional voice services, which are yet to hit their peak, an industry expert has warned. VoIP is in an ever-evolving state of flux, growing and changing to meet the needs of customers and the services they come up with.

A common misconception is that OTT players have stolen the voice market from operators, but in reality they have expanded it. The growing HD trend – including developments in HD voice, IPX and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) – delivers increased quality and is where operators have a distinct advantage over their competitors and where they can grow their minutes too.

HD voice is like HDTV, but instead of high-definition images, you get high-definition sound. There’s no background noise and crystal-clear voice quality. Offering these superior quality services is key for carriers and partnering with the right wholesaler is the first step.

Mobile Voice over IP (MVoIP), as a potential space for major growth. HD voice to mobile integrates voice, video, and private branch exchange communications to connect computers, telephone connections and internal/external mobile networks.

The rebirth of the voice services market is already beginning to happen and those who capitalise on it quickly will see the greatest success. At V1 VoIP, voice services and solutions are still very much at the top of our agenda and what our resellers and wholesalers are currently requesting most. V1 VoIp is confident that carriers who choose to voice services and solutions the same priority and take advantage of this opportunity will not be disappointed.
