An Eye Opener On Hosted Telephony
No one knows where the future holds or what kind of phones are going to be there some few years to come. Certainly, there will be more conversations on the internet. The new age of telephony started fifty years ago. It has for so many years run by ordinary lines of the phone in a system that was well known as Centrex. Some part of this system is still being used today. The Centrex system can easily be used by phones which are usually connected to it using lines. Even though the Centrex system seems backward, it is still being used today. It is evident that hosted telephony did face a hard time when it was invented.
However, the system seems to be working very well. The system is commonly referred to as the cloud in the recent years. Telephony had to take at least three decades before it was rendered as a credible source of communication. For both business and domestic use, it is termed as the best since its cost of use is very low. According to telephony, the number of people using the internet had grown to 200 million in 2015. This service was described as brilliant by many communication experts.
The reason as to why telephony took many years to set pace in the market was because broadband available could not sustain it. Other issues that had been faced by telephony was in the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). By then, VoIP was considered as unstable.
The system faced a lot of critics, and its growth was slowed by the negative influence in the consumer market. VoIP is considered as a stable system today. The system is also reliable due to its flexibility in the rendering of service. Additionally, the phones being produced today do not need any configuration. Since the phone is not limited to any service, the phone can work out of the box. There is an increased in high audio calls due to the increased technology. In many countries around the world, telephony works as the most dominant form of service. The system hit the four million users mark in the United Kingdom back in 2015.
Today, the system has risen to at least six million subscribers. In the recent years, most of the companies have participated in the purchasing of a phone system. Immediately after the system is installed, it is usually attached to telephone lines and other extensions. Later, the business can decide to maintain the system or hire a telecommunication company to do it for them. Due to advantages such as scalability, compatibility with other devices and low capital need, the system has seen tremendous improvements.
