Research and Markets: Quantifying the Costs of VoIP

DUBLIN, Ireland, May 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18443 ) has announced the addition of Quantifying the Costs of VoIP to their offering.

Consumer VoIP services can offer very low-cost calls, especially for international and other toll calls, but this new Research Note finds that complex plans and wide price variations could result in consumers paying more for their service using VoIP.

'Quantifying the Costs of VoIP' is the first detailed analysis of Australian VoIP service prices based on the full range of industry data. Having compiled 42 residential VoIP plans and 33 PSTN plans for analysis as part of the Instant Benchmark service, a real consumer telephone bill was then re-rated using the prices from these plans to calculate the Industry Low, Industry Median, and Industry High VoIP and PSTN plans for a series of Consumer Baskets.

The surprising result is that even when the bill analysis only re-rates call charges, the most expensive VoIP services are more expensive than the median PSTN prices for all the consumer baskets used in the study. If the cost of broadband service and a PSTN access line (necessary to support an ADSL connection) are included in the analysis, VoIP only offers significant savings if the user has the time, patience and knowledge to find the cheapest plans in Australia.

'Quantifying the Costs of VoIP' also found that the existing price competition in PSTN services would deliver services at an overall cost comparable to VoIP for many Consumer Baskets.

VoIP only shows a clear, consistent, and undeniable advantage for users with very large numbers of toll calls - for example, with high numbers of National or International calls. The Research Note presents the impact analysis of expanding the customer's calls in these three categories.

'Quantifying the Costs of VoIP' is a 23-page Research Note which includes 9 Figures and 8 Tables.

The report includes: - Bill re-rating showing VoIP and PSTN service costs for calls only; - Bill re-rating including VoIP on-costs and PSTN service costs; - Impact analysis of a change in call volumes.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
