1 SERVICE OVERVIEW AND SCOPE
Immervox’s VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) Service can provide Customers with a range of IP telephony solutions tailored to the Customer’s specific requirements.
Immervox works with a number of third party network and telecommunication partners to provide Customers with the optimum solution for their VOIP Service requirements.
The Service may include:
• “Simple” VoIP
• Immervox’s unique variable of Hosted VoIP (ViP)
• Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)
2 MINIMUM TERM
A minimum term of 36 months applies to all VoIP Service products, unless stated otherwise on the Order Form and confirmed on the Acceptance.
3 SIMPLE VoIP
3.1 A per subscription solution to make, receive and manage calls over the internet. With bundled in minutes to UK landlines & Mobiles and free On-Net calls.
3.2 All the Features, without the fuss. Simple Voip provides the subscription required to access VOiP using your existing internet connectivity, via IP handset, mobile or desktop application. This includes an online portal where each subscription can manage their own calls to arrange diverts out of hours, apply Twinning so the mobile rings as well as IP Handset and many more features to ensure you never miss a call.
3.3 This solution uses Gamma’s Horizon product, our supplier of choice because it uses Broadsoft software the world’s leading call controller platform with Polycom and Cisco hardware. With contracts starting from 1- 36 month and from 1-1000+ subscriptions this really is a flexible solution which can be deployed quickly anywhere including internationally. Even international on-net calls are free, you can set one up for your office in India, Spain etc and one in your UK office for free calls to each other.
3.4 A great addition to your existing communications setup where you cannot yet upgrade, but need features like an online portal for admin to control your calls, Auto attendant, call queuing, and hunt groups. When you need to provide a Voice solution quickly or temporarily where a high speed internet connection is already in place. For instance, Home workers can use their home connection to make business calls. Remote workers stay in touch using the Mobile application and appear as though they are in the office with a geographic looking DDI number
4.1 An alternative to a traditional telephone system and unique to Immervox, Hosted ViP is a complete package, created to keep things simple for you to order, deploy, operate and adapt to meet your business demands.
4.2 This solution is used by many businesses for their Voice. By franchises with a pre-designed structure for fast deployment of new contracts. For remote workers who need to manage their calls to the office, home and mobile. For Temporary sites and even international sites with UK offices.
4.3 We bundle in all the hardware, software, Internet connection, survey and installation elements needed to operate a reliable and flexible Hosted/VOIP solution. We even offer a flavour for those businesses with capable in-house IT staff, keeping the costs down further.
4.4 Part of this solution includes Gamma’s Horizon product, our supplier of choice because it uses Broadsoft software the world’s leading call controller platform with Polycom and Cisco hardware.
4.5 With the number of ISDN channels being connected each year reducing, most businesses are now at least considering an alternative to their traditional lines and Telephone system. That’s because in addition to some cost savings made by not installing and maintaining hardware onsite, ViP offers a range of clever features and an emphasis on control and administration through the web. Administrators can quickly configure the system according to your businesses changing requirements, whilst your employees can manage calls easily and effectively through additional services, such as desktop & mobile client software, wallboard and receptionist console.
4.6 With no upfront costs and minimal monthly rental per user, ViP is the best value Hosted solution available.
5.1 SIP is the signalling method used to provide access across either private or public Data Networks. Instead of using the normal 64kbps for a traditional line call, data is packetized 40-100kbps and translated at the network to PSTN, allowing for calls to be prioritised guaranteeing call quality whilst maintaining the best use of your bandwidth. Choose new or retain existing numbers & DDI’s, from 1 – 1000+ SIP Trunks, with 1 or individual geographic numbers. Each SIP Trunk Includes Free UK landline mins per subscription per month.
5.2 SIP, as well as being an alternative to ISDN, is perfectly formed to work in collaboration with ISDN to either be the primary or secondary service. By Integrating SIP into your existing infrastructure you have increased resilience with the ability to increase capacity at the drop of a hat. This is particularly important for seasonal organisations where you do not want to commit to a long term service when it is only required a few months of the year such as sporting events, ticket sales, call centres.
5.3 Another key difference is that an ISDN phone line is constructed of copper wires, a SIP trunk can be placed on any type of internet connection – be it fibre based or copper based. This adds an extra layer of reliability and flexibility.
5.4 Put simply SIP is a virtual phone line that uses a specific digital standard to create, modify and terminate voice calls, that can deliver both voice and video.
5.5 Our Technical consultants have the expertise to advise on the capacity and combination of solutions that would meet your business’ communication Strategy.
5.6 Gamma, our provider of choice because of their purpose built next generation network designed specifically for delivering enhanced Voice services to the business communications market. Additionally offering all the features you traditionally get with Voice communications such as CLIP, Call barring and Park and Transfer. As well as enhanced disaster recovery with cloud based numbers you’re a call or click away from diverting your calls in the event of a fire, flood or no access.
5.7 Contact centres find that SIP allows them to have better control of their capacity and the associated costs, and often reduces the kit that is required onsite for Multi-sites as well as Rationalisation of existing lines and numbers. With the Installation of SIP being so fast and scalable it is perfect for temporary sites and although it requires a Telephone system the portability and number flexibility means everything can follow you when relocating and be installed just as quick.
5.8 The design of your network will play a large role in the suitability and setup of your SIP solution. Integral to the SIP will be the connectivity that is used to support it. Our Technical consultants, working with you and your IT support Team will ensure that your network has the capacity to support your needs and develop a strategy if it’s not quite there yet. As the impact of adding SIP to your Unified Communications will Improve the productivity of your staff, the service your customers receive and ultimately your return on investment which our consultants are happy to help you calculate.
