Mobile VoIP Hits It Big with Smart Phones

New Smart Phones like the IPhone 5 Are Good for VoIP

There is no doubt whatsoever that the smartphone revolution has been a boon to internet-enabled services such as VoIP. Even though IP services could work on feature phones or "dumb phones" before, there was no way to take full advantage of the plethora of services that mobile VoIP offered without a complicated machine like a smart phone with its own ecosystem and apps that allowed you to download a variety of SIP clients and connect to dozens of different VoIP services.

Now more than ever, customers and especially businesspeople are in need of a consolidation of their digital identities as they migrate to many different types of devices. Having separate telephone numbers for each of them is a drag and introduces gross inefficiencies as well. It's no wonder that VoIP is one of the fastest-growing segments of Internet traffic today. Given that it is superior to the traditional PSTN system in almost every way, this trend is likely to continue.

The iPhone 5 that was announced yesterday is likely to continue the trend of smart phones dominating the sales of mobile devices throughout the world. A couple of weeks ago we read that the Samsung Galaxy S3 had outsold the iPhone 4S in sheer volume and this growth was in no danger of ending any time soon.

The Future Is Bright for VoIP

But the rise of the smartphone has ripple out effects that touch on almost every aspect of our day-to-day lives. Among these is the fact that work environments are changing dramatically as more and more people begin to work from remote locations either from home or while traveling. When you can check your mail, and send IM text messages, doesn't it make sense that your entire voice communications should also be simplified as well?

The fact is that smart phones have changed expectations the world over. Users now expect there to be an app for everything. It is hardly a coincidence that mobile VoIP systems have experienced exponential growth at the same time as smart phones. Try and obtain the services of a local Los Angeles PBX VoIP provider with preferably many data centers scattered throughout the country so as to minimize the round-trip times between your location and the remote server.

The best part is that you can get started with VoIP using your existing infrastructure and an Internet connection in as little as 15 min. If you have a smart phone, you're already set up to start using it immediately!
