VoIP - the Future Looks Bright

The future is looking promising for VoIP as more and more businesses realise they need to future proof their communication structure. 

A recent US study by the Software Advice reveals findings that help support the theory that IP communication such as VoIP is the passage to the business longevity (as mentioned in the recent Adapt or Die blog).

Their findings showed that more business buyers already use a VoIP service than any other type of voice service. Full UC (unified communications) is too expensive for SMEs, but cloud PBXs have the perfect balance of being low cost and functionality rich. US businesses are rapidly catching on to this, so the question remains, why are some Australian businesses lagging behind in the undeniable IP revolution?

Software Advice found twenty-one percent of buyers want a system that forwards calls to mobile devices, while 25 percent seek a system with voicemail. This is consistent with feedback from MyNetFone customers in Australia, who report that our 'Follow Me' feature (forwarding calls to mobiles) and 'Voicemail to email' are their top favourite service features of Virtual PBX. 

The study discovered the main reason businesses were seeking a VoIP solution was because they were experiencing aging/end-of-life system problems with legacy PBXs. Additionally, they found many small businesses are currently saving significantly on their monthly phone bills through using the SIP Trunking system, whereby businesses are only charged on the number of simultaneous phone calls that the trunk can support, bypassing the expensive “one line per employee” cost traditional voice systems impose.

These results suggest that hosted VoIP phone system adoption rates will continue to rise as companies move away from legacy and on-premise PBX solutions in search of more scalable futureproof systems. 

VoIP, it's the future of business telecommunications, don't get left behind!

Adapt or Die? Darwinism Is Very Much Alive in Business Communications

Darwinism is very much alive in business communications, now more than ever the switch to modernised communication has become contemporary survival measure and no longer a matter of choice.

Rene Sugo raises such thought provoking revelations in the article ‘Believe the hype about VoIP’. Sugo not only draws attention to the progress VoIP has made as a service but how the dependency on such technology-driven unified communications is now embedded into our business culture. He goes on to argue that businesses that do not modernise their communication structure will be left behind and are at the risk of being rendered obsolete as its competitors progress.  

Given large industry advancements such as the NBN roll out in Australia, the dependency on VoIP communications is only set to grow stronger. The NBN Co has already commenced landline disconnections in certain areas which means those who have not already switched to VoIP will be left in the cold. 

The evolution is already here, don't get left behind.

MyNetFone Sponsors Pink Torres Kitesurf Expedition

MyNetFone is proud to be one of the major sponsors of the Pink Torres kitesurf expedition, which aims to fundraise $100,000 for the McGrath Foundation.  Kicking off on July 12, the ambitious team of 16 kitesurfers will attempt to cross the Torres Strait from far north Queensland all the way to Papua New Guinea. 

The journey will take the team more than 280 kilometres across the infamous Torres Strait from Cape York to Saibai island, with stopovers at the uninhabited reef at Kirkadie and Coconut island, Yorke Island and Mission Reef Sand Cay.  The physically taxing journey, which will see the team kitesurfing all day to cover the huge distance, is expected to take five days. Of particular concern will be the salt water crocs and reef sharks known to populate the Torres! 

The aim of the expedition is to raise $100,000 to help fund the amazing work of the McGrath Foundation. As of June 2013, the McGrath Foundation has helped support over 20,000 Australian families experiencing breast cancer, ensuring their physical, psychological and basic support needs are met. With 84 McGrath Breast Care Nurses working in communities right across Australia, families can self refer to this free service. Through community fundraising such as the Pink Torres kite surfing expedition the McGrath Foundation continues to work tirelessly to ensure there is a breast care nurse to support every Australian family experiencing breast cancer. 

MyNetFone pink kites for Torres Crossing

In addition to its fund raising and breast cancer awareness aims, the team will run kite flying clinics with the local communities along the way.

The award, which recognises leadership and excellence in project management, was given to us for the rollout of VoIP services to the Tasmanian Government.  The project is the first of its kind by any state government and one of Australia’s largest VoIP rollouts, incorporating 30,000 end users.

CeBIT Outstanding Project Award Winner 2013

The project, dubbed ‘Voice Services - Public Network Access and Carriage’, provides the Government with a locally hosted, dedicated Voice Network, featuring massive scalability in VoIP traffic, carrier interconnected network infrastructure and fully automated Local Number Portability (LNP).  The network is built on MyNetFone's state of the art software systems.
