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.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
