Wholesale VoIP is Taking over the Communications World

April 24, 2012

By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has become mainstream over the last few years as companies of all sizes recognize the cost and efficiency benefits in this communication platform. With the growing demand in the global market, the opportunity is right for those companies seeking to leverage wholesale VoIP to launch their own carrier arm. 

VoIP often refers to the technologies, methods and transmission techniques that are used in the delivery of voice communications over the Internet with the data connection. Wholesale VoIP companies are eager to gain your business and with proper research you will find the right fit for your company.

Companies that utilize wholesale VoIP carriers include telephone companies, call centers, satellite service providers, cable TV networks, cell phone carriers and more. Providers in these industries often turn to wholesale VoIP from providers like Virtutone due to quality of the voice service, competitive pricing and ease of use.

In searching the right wholesale VoIP carrier for your company, look for specific characteristics that set the quality carrier apart in this space, such as those offered by Virtuone:

  • High clarity
  • No echoes
  • Little to no delay time
  • Voicemail capabilities
  • Call forwarding and call waiting
  • E-911 services
  • Call transfer options
  • 3-way calling abilities
  • Do Not Disturb features
  • Ability to keep your current phone number

All of these characteristics should be offered by any wholesale VoIP provider seeking to claim a segment of this market. Different carriers also offer different pricing plan options. Some offer flat rates that include a onetime monthly fee and others offer a per minute plan that includes a lower monthly fee as well as a per minute rate for all long distance calls.

Managed services are something else to consider when shopping for a wholesale VoIP carrier. These services allow you to customize your plan to fit your exact needs and to do it at the least cost to you and your company. 

A management portal should be available so that you can manage your account (adding or removing voicemail, putting numbers on standby, allow or block international calls, hook up a fax machine, etc.) from one centralized location.

The flexibility in these types of wholesale VoIP packages are what makes for great efficiency and productivity within your environment. Because the systems are so easy to use, virtually anyone can learn the system, benefiting from the basics of wholesale VoIP from the day of deployment.

Wholesale VoIP packages were designed to make your company more efficient and help to increase your capabilities while on the phone. Likewise, VoIP technology helps to streamline communication activities and costs within the enterprise or small business, while also allowing for the optimal management of voice communication managed on a data network.
