Push for Retail VoIP Services Causes Surge in Wholesale VoIP

July 26, 2011

One of the biggest trends in the last decade has been the push of business VoIP, and today that trend is rated as the top method of communication, quickly surpassing landlines. And the push to VoIP is not just stuck in retail as it has expanded to the wholesale VoIP market as well.

In a recent blog post titled, “The Increase in Wholesale VoIP Business,” a blogger contends that VoIP is “holding the scene today” and will capture the whole market of communication in the near future.

“Today VoIP is the mainstream technology and one can make huge profits being a part of it,” the blog states.

Accordingly, the last few years have seen a rise in enterprises in this trade such as Vonage, Cisco (News - Alert) and Skype, which are now offering VoIP services to the customer. Moreover, with the innovation of VoIP, the skills of Internet protocol are being used to send the audio. Whether it be in desktop applications, phone services or corporate telephone systems, companies all over are turning to retail and wholesale VoIP technology.

With the retail market of this product so fast, the swell for wholesale VoIP happened naturally, the blog explains. In 2009 alone annual growth in residential VoIP service peaked at 116 percent, helping shove wholesale VoIP services to new heights.

“Wholesale business of this technology has been on high heels of success allowing many to step in,” the blog states.

One company leading the charge in wholesale VoIP services is Alcazar Networks, a nationwide wholesale VoIP provider. Alcazar Networks provides a wide range of services including wholesale origination and termination, local and long distance, toll free, hosted PBX (News - Alert) phone systems, virtual attendants and call center solutions.

When Alcazar Networks first opened in 2003, it directed its attention toward the retail market and started providing “cutting edge products and service” for small to medium sized companies.  Over the years, however, the company began to cast its eyes on the wholesale VoIP market and wondered when the right time would be to break into the market.

Most recently, Alcazar Networks expanded its resume of services to now include wholesale local termination (outbound), an offering that promises to provider carriers with substantial cost savings as customers can terminate calls locally at roughly 50 percent of standard intrastate charges. Traffic may be originated anywhere, then handed to Alcazar Networks over a SIP handoff (dedicated facility or public Internet).

Alcazar Networks first began product testing about six months ago and is now excited about spreading the word about its latest offering.
