OnSIP Sidesteps VoIP Fraud Trends Highlighted In NYTimes

In response to this recent New York Times article on VoIP fraud

Sadly enough, there will always be people looking to exploit security lapses in technology for their own personal gain. Stories about millions of credit card numbers being stolen from large retail organizations and big banks are recent examples. And VoIP is no different. There are always people looking to exploit lapses in security in the VoIP space. Luckily, with a hosted PBX solution such as OnSIP, one can mitigate many of the security challenges that plague other industries.

OnSIP Tip: Use SIP Aliases to Screen Incoming Calls

Versatile business VoIP platforms allow users to take calls with flexibility and convenience. OnSIP's SIP alias feature, which allows for sub-users to be created for a single user, gives employees a way to set up separate lines on their phone for the various ways in which they might be reached— e.g. extension dialed (internal call), dialed from the sales queue, or reached via the support group. This lets users distinguish between their internal calls, sales calls, and support calls, thus allowing them to calibrate their response appropriately.

OnSIP Tip: Voicemail to Email For Business VoIP Users

We want our customers to have a business VoIP solution that's more than a phone system. From our Unified Communications platform my.onsip to our in-browser integration with InstaCall and InstaPhone, OnSIP's platform shows that telephony itself is not the only communications solution today's customer requires.

Besides these obvious answers, there are also some lesser known integrative bits of our platform that can prove especially useful for workers on the go. For instance, consider our voicemail to email option, a feature that automatically sends voicemail recordings to your email inbox in a .wav format.

The Consumer Adoption Curve of WebRTC is Just Beginning

If you keep up with WebRTC news and analysis, you may have read Irwin Lazar’s “WebRTC Market Update” last Thursday. The overarching idea of the article seems to be that while WebRTC has yet to live up to the great deal of hype it’s received, it shouldn't be viewed in a negative light. Working for a company that sees a bright future for this technology, I wanted to dive deeper into the criticism to find answers.

As Lazar said, WebRTC has been the most talked about collaboration technology for the past two years. Despite that, survey results strongly suggested the majority of IT professionals in early 2014 had no plans to implement WebRTC, with another large chunk still in the evaluating its potential. It’s understandable to digest these statistics and begin to think that WebRTC has been a disappointment, but when the common reasoning was “it’s not ready”, I feel that judgement should be reserved.
