The Abridged Version of VoIP Education
We started seeing VoIP come into the communications space somewhere around the mid-90s, and since its inception, it has come a long way. As far as technology goes, VoIP’s age is rather impressive; a lot of technologies tend to fizzle out over a period of time. VoIP has managed to evolve with the Internet, improving and helping businesses keep their bills down and communication efficient. Not many technologies have done the same.
By now, you’ve probably at least heard about it, and maybe you don’t understand it to its fullest extent. That’s okay. There are plenty of resources available so you can get yourself current on what it is, and why it’s a sound choice for businesses. Where does one begin to learn about VoIP without being overwhelmed by the copious amounts of information via the Web?
Tech Writer John Terra compiled a list of go-to sources on all things VoIP. In a recent post, Terra’s first choice is a book from the popular “Dummies” line, simply titled “VoIP for Dummies.” It’s boils down the basics of VoIP; what it is, how to choose what solution is best, setting up a network, and so on.
Another resource Terra recommends is a VoIP Online Training Course.
“This online course is provided by UCLA's Communication Technology Services (News - Alert) Training Centers, and offers an online VoIP education orientation lesson for what looks to be no charge. This is a quick overview that gives you the basics and lets you get the fundamentals in no time,” writes Terra.
In the wide-open technology landscape, VoIP has become quite a household name, but still, not everyone knows about all of its bells and whistles. It’s hard not to search the Internet without coming up with a list of reasons to switch to VoIP; with its many benefits, it’s an attractive option that many businesses have yet to switch over to. Culling through the information can be daunting, but start small, and focus on the resources as outlined by Terra.There is no doubt that the way in which VoIP services are delivered is changing how businesses communicate. With its low costs, the convenience and portability and advanced communication features, VoIP benefits everyone from individuals to small offices and large enterprises. Educate thyself.
