Broad-Connect Telecom, a Canadian telecommunications provider offering Hosted PBX (News - Alert), SIP Trunking, IP PBX solutions and more, announced it has received a trademark designation for the term VOPI or “Voice over Private Internet.”
Company officials claim that VOPI will eradicate many of the challenges business face when using conventional VoIP services.
VOPI differs from traditional VoIP communications in that it gives complete control to businesses over their VoIP. Company officials say VOPI provides a fully managed solution to businesses looking to resolve the challenges inherent in unmanaged VoIP.
The VOPI solution offered by Broad-Connect Telecom allows the use of the company’s secure private, point-to-point circuits and help businesses deliver secure and high quality voice communications.
Most common problems associated with traditional VoIP are latency, jitter, and packet loss. Each of these problems indirectly leads to a decrease in voice and call quality.
Unlike VoIP which uses a public network, VOPI uses a private network to transmit voice packets. This results in far greater quality and provides an IP-based telecom solution void of quality and reliability concerns, according to company officials.
Security has been a major issue affecting businesses that deploy VoIP services. Denial of service attacks and other security intrusions have been found common in traditional VoIP services. Hackers with access to packet sniffers and similar tools are able to monitor pertinent call location and transmission details. They could even eavesdrop on confidential conversations.
VOPI addresses these security concerns as well. Since VOPI packets travels securely over Broad-Connect Telecom's private and secure network security threats are destroyed.
“Breaches in security are a constant fear for businesses, since VOPI avoids traveling through the public Internet our consumers can rest assured that their connection is secured and dedicated at all times,” said Ravi Prasher, VP of Sales, Broad-Connect Telecom, in a statement.
“By offering our consumers a true business grade IP voice solution, our VOPI method of delivering IP voice services across Broad-Connect Telecom's advanced Canada wide private network ensures that their communications needs are being met and that every call is optimized for quality,” Prasher added.
