How to design the best support structure for VoIP deployments

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Aug 10, 2022 10:50:00 AM

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) often comprises a substantial portion of the budget for many businesses, a large part of which goes to paying the wages of support staff. Larger enterprises may need to employ a full-time, in-house team of professionals to support all their ICT services and assets, including VoIP communications systems.

However, smaller businesses have limited budgets and few ICT-related tasks to justify a full-time or even a part-time ICT position. It’s more difficult for these firms to support their communications systems without wasting valuable and often scarce resources.

In this article, we hope to provide you with insight on how to design the best support structure for your VoIP communications services without overextending your budget.

Using blockchain to simplify number portability

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jul 27, 2022 10:43:00 AM

Blockchain is a technology used to store records of various types of data. The technology can be used for practically anything, including monetary transactions, music distribution, insurance and peer-to-peer energy trading. The list goes on.

One innovative application of blockchain currently under consideration is using the technology for managing and implementing telephone number portability between telephony service providers. This would save many ICT (information and communications technology) managers a lot of headaches.

In this article, we illustrate how this idea would work, and we also touch upon the implications that it would have for ITSPs (internet telephony service providers) and enterprise telephony users.
