Cloud and IP-based telecommunications providers deliver voice and data communications that cut costs without limiting features services. Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a great IP-based voice delivery service for small-to-large enterprise businesses. Meanwhile, time-division multiplexing (TDM) is becoming a thing of the past.
The success of cloud-based providers has demonstrated that a cloud-based platform can be just as effective as a software-based platform, but at a much lower cost. Whether it be Hosted VOIP or Managed IP-PBX, IP-based voice applications has become a major part of the cloud communications phenomenon.
