As we mark our 10th anniversary transforming cloud communications, it's time to reflect back and look forward.
We are two decades into the VoIP transition and there are still many businesses moving from traditional communication systems to modern VoIP services, like hosted PBX. Now is an ideal time for service providers to help these businesses make that transition and participate in the fast growing cloud communication services market.

If you're new to offering VoIP one of the key considerations in preparing to launch phone service is rate center coverage. While you have global connectivity with an upstream Internet connection, this old telco world concept regarding local boundaries remains relevant and important when it comes to the telephone numbers you can offer.
The U.S. VoIP market is strong and it's growing. VoIP subscriptions have grown 32% since 2013, increasing at a compound annual growth rate of 10%. And interconnected VoIP subscribers outnumber wireline switched access lines for the first time ever in the FCC's biannual status report.
ETI Software Solutions announced the support and integration with Alianza’s Cloud Voice Platform providing a simplified operational environment for VoIP service management.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is funding rural broadband investments with its 2018 Connect America Fund (CAF) Phase II auction. And VoIP will play a role in making that happen.
Over the past year I’ve spent a lot of time talking to key new players in deploying broadband to rural America: electric cooperatives. Due to the lack of investment by the local telcos and cable operators, these co-ops have decided to deliver a suite of modern connectivity and communication services to their members and help enrich life and commerce in their communities.
With the recent BroadSoft and GENBAND acquisitions, cable MSOs, ISPs and telcos must be asking: what is the future of my VoIP softswitch network? Is my current supplier the one that can take me to the web-scale, virtualized software future?
At Alianza, we say: “Got Fiber? You need VoIP!” We say this because many new ISPs are entering the market without a background in voice services, and there’s great opportunity for them to grow revenue, accelerate ROI and deliver a better customer experience with a phone service portfolio.
Rural telcos are adopting VoIP, but it's a slow go. According to the NTCA's latest survey, just one-third of members have a VoIP service offering. Today's legacy networks are dangerously obsolete and telcos need to move to next-gen IP solutions. Cloud sourcing next-generation VoIP infrastructure can help telcos migrate to IP faster in order to deliver a better experience to their customers and realize impactful financial and operational improvements.
