One of our favorite SIP clients for iPhone and Android Mobile devices

It’s been a while since we’ve updated the blog, our apologies . We’ve been very busy updating the “internals”, we’re about to introduce FlyNumber SIP addresses among other neat features.  The exterior may look the same but there’s plenty going on inside. We’re coming out with new features almost every quarter and the PBX/ Virtual phone system is evolving very nicely. You need to try it out if you haven’t already, it’s visually appealing and the grid gives you a real sense of customization.

There are a handful of quality SIP clients available for IOS and Android devices nowadays. I tried zoiper, media5 and the 3CX IPhone SIP client, the 3CX app was promising but on the latest iPhone 5 (6.02 firmware)  it would lose connection and the calls wouldn’t come in after a couple minutes of the phone being asleep.

That brings me to the modestly priced $7.99 Bria SIP phone from Counterpath. These are the same guys who developed the popular x-lite softphone for Windows; they know what they’re doing. The app runs well in the background and doesn’t seem to drain battery. I like how it lists the missed and placed calls along with seamlessly integrating with my iPhone contacts.

To set this up with us you’ll need to forward your FlyNumber to a SIP account which is registered on the Bria App. Easiest way is to get a free sip2sip.info account and register that info in the Bria VOIP app. On the Bria app when you enter the sip2sip info the username is your sip2sip username without the @sip2sip.info , the password is the one you received in the sign up email and the domain is sip2sip.info.

VOIP Provider Spotlight – VoipWise

We’re going to try and make this a weekly thing ( not really ) , every week we ‘ll showcase or give a short review on a VOIP Provider we’re compatible with.

We like VoipWise because its simple, easy and free. You download the application, login or signup if you don’t have an account and you’re done. The calls get forwarded to your VoipWise account and ring right to your PC or MAC.

The calls seem to connect instantly or in about a second. The Voipwise application seems pretty light and runs without any issues on a basic PC setup. One of its best features is its ability to call multiple destinations for free without any strings attached. I would check them out if your looking for a simple effective VOIP solution for a standard PC or Mac.

VoIP Phone Systems

As a communication tool, the telephone is an incredibly important part of business and without it, it would be incredibly difficult to communicate with our existing clients, potential clients and co-workers. In addition, if a client has a problem, or needs a solution the telephone is one of the most common forms of communication that they will use and as a frequent first point of contact, it’s important that our telephone systems are reliable and responsive as necessary.

We are currently in the middle of one of the largest technological revolutions the world has ever seen and almost every business is starting to benefit from constant innovations right across the board. One area which has really come to light in the last few years is the emergence of VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol telephone systems, this system replaces the need for a traditional telephone line by operating a telephone system over a regular broadband internet connection.

Are they a good business alternative?

When it comes to business, deciding whether something is a good alternative means that you really have to take into consideration what your business needs. As your business continues to grow and develop you need a telephone system which can move and adapt with the times, VoIP technology is designed to grow and develop with your business which means that as your business grows you don’t need to fork out for an entirely new telephone system. It also has the capacity to deal with a number of incoming and outgoing lines at the same time, allowing you to operate the entire office telephone network through one simple network.

What savings might I make?

Regardless of the size of your business, there are a wide range of savings which can be offered by a VoIP network, but the most common is the immediate cost savings that you will see. This is mainly due to the reduction in call costs, this can be seen especially if you are frequently making long distance or international calls, your general cost rates are now replaced by a basically free service which uses only internet data to make the telephone call.

What other benefits could VoIP offer me?

In addition to cost saving, VoIP technology can offer you a wider range of savings, especially when it comes to time. The functionality of the VoIP software means that you are now able to easily participate in video and telephone conferencing, saving you the time and hassle of having to attend the conference in person.

Although many people are sceptical about the reliability and security of this style of telephone system, there are a wide range of security packages available to help ensure the reliability as needed. In addition, as the technology continues to develop improvements are being made right across the VoIP service to help ensure that you have a reliable and stable telephone network.
