VOIP or Voice over Internet Protocol (Voice over IP, VoIP) is one of a family of internet technologies, communication protocols, and transmission technologies for delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, such as the Internet. Other terms frequently encountered and often used synonymously with VoIP are IP telephony, Internet telephony, voice over broadband (VoBB), broadband telephony, and broadband phone.
Internet telephony refers to communications services—Voice, fax, SMS, and/or voice-messaging applications—that are transported via the Internet, rather than the public switched telephone network (PSTN). The steps involved in originating a VoIP telephone call are signaling and media channel setup, digitization of the analog voice signal, encoding, packetization, and transmission as Internet Protocol (IP) packets over a packet-switched network. On the receiving side, similar steps (usually in the reverse order) such as reception of the IP packets, decoding of the packets and digital-to-analog conversion reproduce the original voice stream. Even though IP Telephony and VoIP are terms that are used interchangeably, they are actually different; IP telephony has to do with digital telephony systems that use IP protocols for voice communication while VoIP is actually a subset of IP Telephony. VoIP is a technology used by IP telephony as a means of transporting phone calls.
A somewhat generic term to describe a network, or homologation of networks that are not within a customer’s local domain. Cloud-based applications typically reside in common data-centers and are then accessible to fixed or mobile users over high-speed broadband connections. Because they are hosted in carrier-grade environments, concerns like power redundancy and application fail-over are a thing of the past. The economies gained by moving applications to the Cloud are tremendous as computing resources can now be shared across many users. Most importantly, this can be accomplished without sacrificing security, control, or availability….all for less money.
Colocation is the act of placing multiple (sometimes related) entities within a single location.
Colocation is often used in the data sourcing industry to mean off-site data storage, usually in a data center. This is very important for businesses since the loss of data can be crucial for companies of any size. Unexpected loss in data can result from fires, earthquakes, floods, or any sort of natural disaster.
The benefits to a converged network are transformational. The associated risk however is not for faint of heart. Planning is the difference between success and failure - there is no middle ground. Reaction has been converging enterprise class networks since we opened our doors for business. Along the way we've fined tuned a methodology that mitigates risk through process. Engage Reaction at no cost to assess the communication landscape of your organization. Does convergence make sense? If we agree that it does, a detailed plan will follow that charts the course.
Whether you have a single location with 50 employees or a global enterprise with 25,000 - the methodology is the same. The business applications that convergence brings are worth every bit of the effort associated with the upfront planning. Reaction is here to help when you come calling.
Internet Access has become a standard across all carriers today. The latest trend being the T-1 internet 1.54mbs delivery being replaced 10mg Ethernet as the bandwidth/connection, with the price point at a very affordable level for all business.
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a network, which data packets are assigned labels. Packet-forwarding decisions are made solely on the contents of this label, without the need to examine the packet itself. This allows one to create end-to-end circuits across any type of transport medium, using any protocol. The primary benefit is to eliminate dependence on a particular Data Link Layer technology, such as ATM, frame relay, SONET or Ethernet, and eliminate the need for multiple Layer 2 networks to satisfy different types of traffic. MPLS belongs to the family of packet-switched networks.
