March 17, 2011 - Powernet, the UK’s oldest broadband provider, has released its new ViBE technology this week to address common problems in small and medium sized business VoIP usage. This new approach to integrated voice and data will allow businesses the opportunity to have usable, reliable VoIP telephone service without impacting their data availability and functionality.
Focused on addressing common problems in regard to reliability and call quality, ViBE will provide business users with a clear and functional solution. By implementing a dynamic blend of voice and data, users will now be afforded full use of the bandwidth in their service package, allowing for simultaneous voice and data usage.
Traditional QoS techniques have had issues with call quality because of technical switching issues that often cause delays. They have also been unable to allocate more than 70% of the available bandwidth reliably toward voice transmissions. These shortcomings created an unreliable and often unclear connection for businesses attempting to use VoIP for their telephone needs.
Powernet’s ViBE solution will offer businesses innovative and reliable QoS techniques, redundancy to ensure uninterrupted calls, and analytics to ensure higher uptime rates and better overall performance. This will allow small and medium sized businesses the opportunity to fully utilize VoIP calling and drastically reduce their telephony expenses.
