Voice-over-IP (VoIP) has entered the lexicon of even the most non-technical-minded. It represents the future of telecommunications, but while many have heard of VoIP at this point, they are still not yet aware of or understand the importance of wholesale VoIP termination – and more importantly – what it can do to save them and their business money.


“For many businesses, being able to maintain a VOIP system on their network is crucial to their existence,” wrote SparkyHub.com. “This is partly due to the fact that old methods of communication networking are no longer reliable. For this reason technologies such as wholesale VOIP are becoming increasingly popular.”

The case for VoIP is one of functionality, price and relevancy, according to the author.

What’s the number one thing customers want from their wholesale VoIP provider? According to the site, that would be service; plain and simple.

“Things like instant messaging and support tickets are easily available. These are simple functions which are not available with a traditional telephone network,” the article goes on.

VoIP also offers cheap and easy videoconferencing, and while moving to all-digital calling is an advantage now, it will soon be an industry standard. Needless to say, this will be important to stay current.

Price is also a big reason that individuals and businesses should consider VoIP, and that’s precisely where wholesale VoIP termination comes into play.

Basically, VoIP has become a commodity. It is now possible to get VoIP through wholesalers that aggregate VoIP services and are therefore able to offer exceptionally low prices. Through something called “least cost routing,” wholesale VoIP providers can select the lowest-costing VoIP solution on a per-call basis, passing that savings on to the customer.

The “termination” part of wholesale VoIP termination simply means the end point on a telecommunications networks, or in other words, it is the connection with the caller on the other end.

For those dipping their toes in the wholesale VoIP pool of possibilities, you can probably now understand why termination is such a critical part of the process.

One company that offers wholesale VoIP is VoIP Innovations. Its renowned wholesale VoIP offering, Titanium III, provides domestic and international wholesale VoIP termination through dozens of top termination carriers that are then aggregated using the company’s proprietary least cost routing system.

Bottom line: It provides inexpensive calling with high quality – something that VoIP provides in theory but not always in practice.

“Quality of Voice Over Internet Protocol services has vastly improved over the past decade, but sometimes it’s still not perfect – especially for large networks,” the article noted. “The nature of a VoIP network allows for packet of information to be lost during a connection, and it is this loss of data that can cause things like latency and jitter.”

This is something which you won’t have to worry about, however, when investing in a prestigious wholesale VoIP provider such as VoIP Innovations (News - Alert), who will guarantee quality.

“While there are many benefits of VOIP termination – a wholesale plan can offer you a lot in terms of pricing,” the article concluded. “You will be able to save your business on calls internationally and get a wholesale rate for your network needs, which are often cheaper than the national rates of traditional telephone networks.”
