    Experience with VOIP

    Has anyone used Voice Over Internet Protocol for their business. The research I did said that the business was still spotty - what has been your experience?

    I think VoIP is one of most innovative and useful asset for every business.
    I have used TheRealPBX for VoIP phone solutions.

    Hello
    1 Call Forwarding

    Whether you've set your Skype account up on your home or work computer, the fact is, you are occasionally going to get important calls when you aren't there. Thankfully, you can simply forward those calls to another Skype account or even a cell phone or land line. That way, even if your computer at work is shut down, as soon as a call comes in to your Skype account, the call will immediately ring on your cell phone, your home computer and your home phone line, meaning that no matter where you are you'll be sure to get it.
    To forward a call click on the "Tools" menu and select "Options." From there set the forwarding number in the "Call Forwarding & Voicemail" section.

    2 Filtering and Blocking Users

    Skype is a great tool for both business and pleasure, but if you don't take preventative steps, it can also cause you some serious security problems. Vishing is a new VoIP targeted scam in which cyber-criminals use a VoIP client such as Skype to call people and attempt to trick them into revealing important financial details such as credit card numbers or online passwords. But you can limit these attacks by simply blocking unwanted callers.
    To block unknown or unwanted callers, simply click on "Tools" and select "Options." From there, select "Privacy" and choose the level of security that works best for you. When it comes to individual attacks, you can avoid repeat vishing calls by blocking the spammer by clicking on "Manage Blocked Users" in the "Options" dialog.

    3 A DIY Home Security System

    Whether you want to keep an eye on your pet goldfish from work or just make sure no one has broken in the house while you are on vacation, Skype can double as an away from home monitoring system.
    Checking in is simple with Skype's one and two way video calling. You'll need two separate Skype accounts, a computer at home with a webcam, and access to the Internet. Using one account, setup the home version of Skype to auto-answer calls and automatically fire up the webcam. Then to check in, just use the second Skype account to call the first, and the webcam video will pop up.

    I heard it VOIP works well, but if your internet provider goes out, so does your phone. Also, you can't use your standard 911 phone calls from a VOIP line either.

    We also use Vonage for our business and have not had any problems but it is hard to know if it is "up" all the time. I would not have installed it if we had a high volume of calls though

    We use it for our business line and so far no problems. Granted we don't spend alot of time on the phone, but enough that we got a seperate business line from our home line. Oh we use Vonage.

    They are coming out with phones that look like regular phones and they continue to work on their technology. I think in a year or two it will be worth switching but I would not do it now for my business line.
