If you are using your VoIP service to route data as well as voice conversations, you will need to consider this and make a note of it when you are looking into your gateway. It is also important to consider if you are getting a lot of fax traffic on your VoIP service.If this is the case, you will also need to make a note of it when you visit a gateway vendor. You should also look into issues like call compression in order to find that VoIP gateway provider that will best work with your purposes and plans.You should also get to know your gateway's maintenance requirements. If you do not know what maintenance your gateway requires, you may lose some service time. Most gateways are simply; you can simply plug your VoIP gateway into the LAN side and a web browser opens, allowing for configuration of all of your needs for Voice over IP services.There are other gateways that offer other services, however, including those that fit right into the IP's framework. These gateways often offer more service than the conventional gateway that plugs directly to the LAN, but they can require a lot more tinkering to get the configuration settings right. In those cases, it is always best to call a professional in to help you set up your network.

Gateways are entirely upgradeable, too, which makes the need to find new ones a non-factor. Instead, you can design your VoIP network with the proper upgrades that will make your system more than capable of handing any call or data load. You can also prepare your system for any setbacks using updated software, which is easily installed through your internet browser window.A VoIP gateway service is necessary for handling more than one call system at a time. Businesses use them as a part of their daily operation if they use Voice Over Internet Protocol. As gateways are upgradeable and generally easy to use, more people are installing them in their home VoIP set-ups as well, making a gateway a component part to the entire VoIP phone system.

Before investing into a VoIP enabled PBX phone system, it will be worthwhile to study its 
salient features.Before opting for VoIP virtual PBX, it is advisable that you take as much time as you want to study the implications as communication is the nerve center of all businesses. You will have to necessarily ponder over the bandwidth requirements and other related issues before effecting the switch over to VoIP virtual PBX.While buying the business VoIP plan, make yourself familiar with the network infrastructure of your organization. Find out what hardware and systems are already in place and what further improvements will be required to support such an advanced technology.

Whether you intend using your existing phones or plan to purchase new ones, make sure they can be operated through standard power over an Ethernet connection. To enjoy the full advantages of this advanced technology, all VoIP phones should also have integrated LAN switch ports to facilitate a single cable connection to an IP phone or computer.It is recommended that you should also determine the amount of bandwidth the virtual VoIP PBX service will require. Please bear in mind that even though the present business operations may be low, it is always prudent to anticipate an increase in network traffic in the foreseeable future and plan the system upgrade accordingly.Here is a useful tip. The most effective way to reduce the amount of bandwidth a business VoIP solution will need is to select codecs that encodes voice stream when transmitting data over network wires. It is to be noted that the transfer rate of codecs ranges from 8 to 64 Kbps but you need to determine which provides a quality acceptable for your business.When incorporating a business VoIP solution, it is critically important to figure out how 911 calls can be placed in the new system. This technology is somewhat complex as a VoIP device does not indicate the physical location. The major reason for this is that the phone can be used from virtually anywhere and moved to different network jacks. For emergency situations, it is safer to maintain an analog phone.Using a large VoIP PBX system generally means that a large number of employees will need training on how to use the new system and avail the concomitant features. It is best to arrange some tutorials on how network devices work as also FAQ sheets for continuous of knowledge.

PBX is abbreviation used for a private branch exchange or a telephone exchange system that serves one's business. Earlier, a PBX was designed to allow companies to control their phone systems through in-house operators. Giant steps have since been taken and instead of merely connecting calls, these systems also connect fax machines, computer modems etc that route through the phone lines.To sum it up, a virtual PBX system should considerably reduce the time the business enterprises spend managing communications and thereby contribute towards increased productivity. Businesses that have remote employees or work in multiple locations may find a virtual PBX system a veritable boon to keep in touch everyone in the company.

Is VoIP Reselling a Profitable Business?

As it is a known fact that VoIP resellers feature lower down the hierarchical order of VoIP business, there arises a question whether they can make a good profit margin while extending their services to end users.
The answer is a big "YES" as it opens up potential business opportunities for them which most fail to comprehend.No matter at whichever level you are tagged on in the VoIP business hierarchy, you can still make a fortune with the kind of services you're enabled to offer to your subordinate  levels.
[img=300x200]https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DZht2ToEhFY/WwPosKVgOrI/AAAAAAAAbak/6qkjo8WNn2wo4zgxIpJaCKWSRFOUekO7wCLcBGAs/s400/voip-reseller-business-voipbizforum.jpg[/img]

So, as a reseller you can scale up your business growth efficiently only if you're able to ensure seamless business run as indicated below.Expand your business boundaries most resellers focus on transmitting VoIP services from retailers to end users or other resellers.
Apart from this, you will have to concentrate on different set of end users such as call centers, educational institutions, small and mid-sized businesses, etc., which can guarantee good returns in order to make your business more competitive. Thus, expansion of business is possible through VoIP reselling for your increased revenue generation.

Choice of Routes generally, the voice call quality through VoIP depends on the internet connection as well as the routes subscribed by VoIP service providers/retail VoIP providers. Though nothing can be done with respect to internet connection by them, they can definitely manage the routes with the help of softwitch based on the number of concurrent calls it can process. The routes can be classified as:

Standard Routes: The voice quality is always standard in nature with any number of concurrent calls.

Premium Routes: The voice quality is crystal clear irrespective of the number of concurrent calls.

Grey Routes: The voice quality dips as the number of concurrent calls increases.
Thus, as a reseller you should be aware of these route choices so that you can accordingly seek them from your wholesaler. A softswitch can help you make the combination choice of these routes to ensure decent voice quality for your end users while bringing more profits to your business. So, see that your wholesaler has a robust softswitch that has this provision.Advanced SoftswitchAs mentioned, the role of softswitch is very critical for successful VoIP reseller business.

Most softswitches don't support billing functionality so it will pose a big problem for you to track customer transactions/accounts and bill them accordingly leading to ineffectual customer service. This will eventually result in huge loss for your business as there would be no transparency in tracking the balance talk time. Hence, an advanced wholesale softswitch that also supports billing functionality has to be procured from your wholesaler to ensure risk-free business environment.

In addition to above, ensure that the SIP clients provided by your wholesaler support advanced features such as Video Conferencing, SMS, Instant Messaging, Call Transfer, File Sharing, etc., in order to provide seamless VoIP services to end users.
