In recent years, key industry drivers – such as - the data and application explosion and the introduction of cloud services – have contributed in the radical evolution of the working environment. In an era where high-stakes deals are discussed and dealt with a mere wave of the finger by virtual mobile teams, the need for reliable network connectivity is paramount.
Legacy services have proven to be expensive and lacking flexibility. End users can experience inconsistent or poor voice communications and often have to rely on a number of different suppliers across varying access type and international borders. Customers are also generating voice out of new endpoints and across different media streams, leading to greater demand on network connectivity. It is important for companies to find a truly global voice supplier to support the dynamic terminals and call control adoption taking place, as well as the increasing availability of IP voice services.
Vodafone is at the heart of better ways of working and delivery of total communications, empowered by our global scale as the leading terminating voice carrier and owner of multiple fixed and mobile networks.
Enterprise Voice Services need to provide secure and flexible solutions with low costs, offering the benefit of a single global voice platform. Suppliers need to provide a personalised transition to IP while simultaneously preserving and enhancing legacy investments made. Ideally the Voice service should be well integrated into WAN services and deliver a single, trustworthy source for both Data and Voice. Aside from the significant cost-saving benefits, opting for a single Enterprise Voice Service ensures secure Total Communication solutions are tailored to specific business needs through both standalone SIP trunking, and combined with, Unified Communication solutions.
As voice moves from legacy circuit to IP packets over both fixed and mobile networks, and customers continue to use non-traditional endpoints to manage their conversations, Vodafone is committed to delivering the full spectrum of benefits from end to end HD voice, to rich media collaboration connectivity, all the while keeping it simple for our customers.
The need for a global voice supplier and a reliable network connectivity has never been more pressing.
