Re: BB10 launches Jan 30

said by ruddypict:

If long distance is a concern to corporations, they use VOIP. You can have it on a landline and a cellular phone. And when you send people out of the city, did you know that there's no WiFi out in the country? No wifi = no free calls.

Hah. It's kind of like you're applying your awareness of a technology to the real world, where you have this idea that companies use all these technologies that young technology savvy folks use in their home.

It would be more accurate if you'd written, "if long distance is a concern to corporations, they could try to use VoIP."

It was the next big thing in the mid-2000's that never went anywhere.

Avaya has 1/3 of the market share in North America and their VoIP connecting products were buggy to at least 2010 and what with that big recession we had, not so many companies wanted to replace all sorts of telephony equipment for an idea.

I imagine a some point VoIP will be the long distance method. It's cheaper for everyone. Technology simply has to catch up..especially the upstream portion of it. I imagine in 10 years, calling a cell phone in Europe will be 1 cent a minute, if calling from a cell phone of VoIP. (unlike the 20 cent PLUS they charge today). Carrier (in Europe) will make money on the data usage as opposed to the caller paid method they use now.

It'll happen naturally once the telecomunications industry offers these features intuitively in a competative nature on the devices and in their services. The speed of that will overtake the speed of corporate America trying to get these technologies working in their companies. Now that we have all the major phones with the ability to communicate over data to other people of similar phones, in a few years I'd expect that we'll have a default cross platform direct communications method (without the need for 'apps' or proprietary software).

Actually I was saying that people are more likely to use VOIP than they would use a proprietary protocol that does a similar thing (but only works on BB).

I could have spelled it out a bit more for people unable to follow a message thread. So let me be clear: Corporations worried about long distance charges will use VOIP a lot more than they would a proprietary protocol on a niche product (esp when both ends need that niche product). I hope this helps.

I think you might be surprised at how many larger entities are moving to VOIP, including the government. Be happy to discuss further in PM or in another thread (so we don't derail this one).

Or you could have just written something that was true. You wrote "If long distance is a concern to corporations, they use VOIP" - that is not true. Instead they send out a memo concerning long distance and start randomly auditing lengthy calls.

Ah I see, you're just trolling again. Have a good day.
