SIP Trunking

New Technologies

The Federal Communications Commission has decided to raise the Universal Service Fund fee levied on interstate and international calls. According to a public notice released by the FCC, the increase will be a record 14.1% for the first quarter of 2010. BTS is placing special emphasis on helping businesses avoid these substantial costs through Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking.

According to Roger Wentowski, President of BTS, "The popularity of SIP Trunking has exploded and has rapidly become the transport of choice for voice communications". "With the current economic environment the last thing most businesses need is an increase in their telecom costs. SIP technology empowers companies to reduce cost and improve productivity through advanced business applications. Through the implementation of SIP, new technology costs most companies absolutely nothing."

SIP technology supports any form of real-time communication regardless of whether the content is voice, video, instant messaging, or a collaboration application. SIP enhances employee productivity by enabling users to inform others of their status (also known as presence management), their availability, and how they can be contacted before a communication is even initiated.

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is a hot technology that's gaining tremendous popularity among companies big and small.

Essentially, cloud computing is a data-processing infrastructure in which the software and the data are stored on remote servers. These servers are connected to the Internet rather than a PC or a company's LAN. When one needs to use some form of software application or access data, the computer connects to the remote server through the Internet.

Have you ever created a profile on LinkedIn or Facebook or sent an email from Yahoo, Google, or Hotmail? If the answer is yes, you have engaged in cloud computing. The data that was created resides on a remote server instead of on your PC or other form of conventional hosting. Simply put, cloud computing includes server processing, data storage, security and voice applications
