Move into the future with Wi-Fi voice

Posted by Guest Blogger on Jun 27, 2018 3:49:00 PM

By Phil Bowers, Senior Marketing Manager, Grandstream


A new trend is beginning to develop within the business communications industry. Being driven largely by enterprises looking to streamline internal networks by eliminating wiring, voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) could be the next major advancement within the VoIP industry. It features the same exact backend hosted, cloud, or SIP trunk services as any wired voice-over-IP (VoIP) network, but with the connections being extended to endpoints through an immersive Wi-Fi network rather than an endless maze of Ethernet cabling.

Here at Grandstream, we are leading the Wi-Fi voice trend through a variety of initiatives and solutions designed to allow businesses to build powerful VoWi-Fi networks that increase productivity, streamline installation and management, and offer eco-friendly benefits. This article will introduce the Wi-Fi voice trend, cover the reasons many businesses are adopting Wi-Fi voice networks, combat a major Wi-Fi voice concern, and highlight the Wi-Fi voice solutions we offer at Grandstream.

Wireless Internet Service Providers or WISPs constitute a growing industry in the United States and worldwide. The WISP Association (WISPA), an advocacy organization for WISPs in the U.S., has over 650 members and 200 vendor associations. WISPA organizes an annual event called WISPAPALOOZA for the purpose of bringing together WISPs and vendors from all over the country.  Last week, Anthony Morris and Trey Smith were speaking with people about our wireless networking and telecommunications solutions at the TeleDynamics booth.

The Future of Telecommunications: the Next 25 Years

Posted by Guest Blogger on Mar 22, 2017 3:56:00 PM

Quantum-leap technology advancements will enable on-demand services anytime, anywhere, with ubiquitous connectivity.

 

by Laureen R. Cook, Principal Telecoms, Media and Technology Advisor, IFC (World Bank) 

Nordic Mobile Telephony (NMT) was introduced as the first 1G system in the Scandinavian countries in 1982. 2G was commercially deployed in 1992 and 3G launched commercially in 2001, allowing mobile data as a mainstream service. 4G has been deployed since 2012, and is still being deployed around the world in developing markets, and 5G is on the horizon for the early- to mid-2020s. On average, we deploy a new generation of mobile communications every 10 years. In 25 years’ time, we will have deployed 7G and be well underway with design of the specifications for 8G, where wireless high-definition video streaming and virtual reality are part of the everyday norm. We will have transformed ourselves from the Digital Era of the 1990s to 2020, to the Digital Era of Automation from 2020 and beyond, which will be an all-immersive, high-definition user experience, taking us seamlessly from Gigabytes GB = 109 of data to Zettabytes ZB = 1021.

How networks affect sound quality

Posted by Guest Blogger on Nov 30, 2016 3:41:00 PM

 

 

By Stefan Eriksson, Marketing and Communications Manager of Konftel

Remote meetings with poor quality audio are often exhausting. Misunderstandings become more likely because it’s difficult to hear nuances and other subtleties in conversation. So you want to aim for the best sound quality possible during teleconferences. The following is a quick explanation of different technical requirements for audio quality.

  • A purely mobile solution gives you great flexibility and mobility, but sometimes at the expense of sound quality. Many mobile operators now offer HD Voice in their networks, which delivers HD audio if the phone supports the technology.
  • Traditional analog telephony delivers an acceptable sound quality, but with limitations in frequency range. Sometimes known as telephone quality or narrowband.
  • VoIP, i.e., digital telephony via the data network (voice over IP), allows for extended frequency range, but with some compression. IP makes it possible to achieve superior audio quality, also called HD audio or wideband.
  • Remember that all local networks and accessories, e.g. Wi-Fi, DECT (wireless telephony) or Bluetooth®, affect the transmission capacity and can have an adverse impact on the sound quality.
  • All of Konftel’s phones and conference units offer HD audio in contexts where PBXs and networks support it.

Cordless SIP phones in the workplace: DECT vs. VoWi-Fi

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jun 29, 2016 3:42:00 PM

For many types of businesses, workforce mobility is indispensable. Wireless technology allows associates to communicate internally and externally without being bound to a desk or station. Traditionally, DECT (digital enhanced cordless telecommunications) has been the technology used for this purpose. More recently, as wireless local area networks (WLANs) have become more commonplace, voice over WLAN (VoWLAN or VoWi-Fi) has emerged as an increasingly utilized technology.
