When we are discussing the technological revolution, Mobile VoIP can be a hot topic to discuss. It is a business question or a debate about its use or implementation.
What does VoIP mean? Do you know?
You may have heard this term “VoIP” many times. The term is an abbreviated form of “Voice over Internet Protocol”. It is also called a Voice over IP phone.
Before I start the main article, let me give you a simple definition of VoIP. It is actually a computer phone that allows you to make phone calls from a computer to anyone, no matter where the person lives in the world. Using VoIP, you can call from PC to PC, from PC to phones (both landline and mobile).
Two types of communication are generally supported by VoIP technologies. Wireless / DECT / PCS protocols for short range or campus communications where all base stations are connected to the same LAN. For more extensive communications, 3G / 4G protocols are used.
How does mobile VoIP work?
There are several technologies or methods by which a mobile handset can be integrated into a VoIP network.
For example – A technology turns the mobile device into a SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) client. It then uses a data network to send and receive SIP messages (for the messaging system). For the voice path, it uses the data network to send and receive RTP or real-time transport protocol.
The above-mentioned technology that turns a mobile handset into a standard SIP client requires the mobile handset to support IP communications at least with the minimum possible capacity. In this application or technology, SIP can be used over any high speed IP wireless network connection such as EVDO rev A, 3G, Wi-Fi or WiMAX.
In another technology, a softswitch such as a gateway is used to connect SIP and RTP to the SS7 (Signaling System No.7) infrastructure of the mobile network. Here it can be controlled by a SIP application server which can provide advanced SIP services to it.
However, during a communication exchange, the voice signal is converted into data packets and travels over the Internet through a VoIP platform. It is then converted back to voice at the receiving end.
How did mobile VoIP bring about a technological revolution?
1) In the beginning, VoIP technology was confined to landlines and PCs only. But now the technology is also taken over by the mobile handset. What Kinds of Features Does a VoIP Phone Have?

Mobile VoIP Business – A Revolution That May Change the Future
You may hear or read these headlines often – “Surprising Growth in VoIP Services”, “Huge Success in Internet Telephony” and so on. of these titles. Please note that sometimes the numbers given on the basis of these statistics can differ significantly as VoIP has different aspects. But one fact is clear and obvious. The VoIP market is growing more and more rapidly around the world in terms of subscribers, revenue and traffic.
Let’s go back to 2008. The global VoIP service market grew 33% in 2008 to reach $ 30.8 billion (according to some experts). IP network services have grown throughout the year. Traditional telephone companies opposed VoIP because they feared losing revenue. However, the VoIP business kept growing. The success of the industry is influenced by the decision of the United States Federal Communication Commission not to control or limit voice traffic on the Net, as well as the low cost of these services.
In another report, a research center mentioned that homeowners in the United States are replacing their landlines with VoIP and that it is increasing day by day. In 2007 and 2008, the market share of residential or traditional telephony increased from 90% to 74% and the industry experienced a further decline of 23% over the next five years.
In Europe, the scenario is the same. About a quarter of households have replaced their landline subscriptions with mobile phones and VOIP. The percentages in Finland (61%), Portugal (48%) and Eastern Europe (39%) are evidence of the mobile VoIP revolution.
VoIP is becoming more and more popular in other European countries as well. The number of VOIP users is particularly high in Latvia (58%), Lithuania (51%), Czech Republic (50%), Poland (49%) and Bulgaria (46%).
When we talk about the VoIP business, its service providers are also an important topic to discuss. Many companies are deploying VoIP service providers not only for cost management but also to deliver exceptional customer experiences to their customers. This means that delivering a great customer experience every time is very important to improve the perception and future prosperity of any business. This is where VoIP excels.
Although many mobile operators have resisted the use of mobile VoIP services, experts believe that such a position will not last long and in the years to come, VoIP will become widespread on mobile phones.
In this case, mobile operators should move ahead with current trends and position cellular VoIP as a premium service, emphasizing quality of service and a range of value-added features in order to withstand the erosion of voice prices.
In conclusion, we can say that everyone needs mobile VoIP in their everyday life. VoIP service providers must therefore provide quality services to keep their business on track.
Long live the mobile VoIP revolution!
