Voice over internet protocol (Voip) has grown in importance, for both businesses and individuals. It’s technology that’s used every day by millions of people all over the world. But, as a recent article for UC Today pointed out, Voip has evolved considerably.
For a start, it no longer just deals with voice as the technology now includes video, as well as other forms of content. One of the things that has made this possible is the reliable and secure connections provided by SIP.
The other way in which Voip has evolved is in terms of the hardware that’s used. In the past, Voip technology allowed you to use a desk phone to make calls via the internet, whereas the advent of smartphones, tablets and other connected devices means Voip is more accessible than ever before.
“Today, Voip is considered as the most valuable mode of communication for companies in search of affordable, scalable and flexible communications around the world,” the news provider asserted.
And there are no signs that innovation in the Voip sector is slowing down. The rollout of 5G networks will make it easier than ever before for businesses to use Voip services, while there are also developments in artificial intelligence (AI) that could see things change further.
Using smart assistants to configure Voip services is one example of how AI could be utilised in this area.
5G is already available in the UK, with all four of the country’s biggest networks set to have launched 5G services by the end of this year. Three turned on its 5G network this month, following Vodafone and EE who started offering 5G coverage earlier this year. O2 is set to follow in October.
