4PSA VoipNow Changing Cloud Communications for 8 Years

Orlando, FL, May 30, 2014 --(PR.com)-- 4PSA, a technology leader in cloud communications software, announced today that VoipNow, its cloud communications platform for service providers, turns eight on May 30th.

"It gives us great pleasure to celebrate VoipNow's 8th birthday together with more than 10,000 partners that have chosen it as their preferred platform for delivering enterprise telephony, video, presence, conferencing, messaging, contact center functionality and mobility to businesses worldwide. Since we launched VoipNow in 2006, a lot has changed in the field of IP-based communications, and the role that communications play in business. We pride ourselves on our platform being part of this evolution," stated Elena Carstoiu, 4PSA COO.

VoipNow was launched as one of the first communications platform for service providers in the world, allowing them to offer SMBs enterprise-grade PBX services, quickly and efficiently. From the start, VoipNow had multitenancy built in to allow multiple levels of access, usage, and permissions. In 2009, VoipNow transitioned from a hosted PBX and VoIP wholesale platform to a full Unified Communications platform. In the following year, business automation was added, which enabled service providers to define service plans, build their online store and customer portal, automatically provision services, manage ordering, invoicing and payment processes.

VoipNow was among the first platforms built for the cloud, thus anticipating the size and importance that cloud-based services would take. It is estimated that the UCaaS market will grow to $23.34 billion by 2019 from the $13.10 billion anticipated for 2014. Therefore, betting on the cloud that early pays off. Back in 2012, VoipNow underwent its most important upgrade. The VoipNow Service Provider Edition brought along a whole new concept and design, with a strong impact on infrastructure, customer service, and automation. Rebuilt on a distributed architecture, with multiple roles split on as many hardware nodes as needed, VoipNow became more scalable, yet easier to maintain than ever; deployment became almost instant, downtime was eliminated. The platform also featured a new API as well as Apps support, which increased customer flexibility. As for the automation tools previously bundled with another 4PSA product, VoipNow Automation, they were now added to the platform at no additional cost.

VoipNow is currently at version 3.0.5. It is offered both as software download, as well as VoipNow Cloud OnDemand, the private cloud solution that allows providers to start delivering Unified Communications services in no time.

"VoipNow Cloud OnDemand provides a blazing fast, automated deployment and is bundled with support from our Professional Services Team for rapid configuration and migration from legacy solutions. Additionally, our partners are free to choose the SIP Trunking and DID providers. So, for service providers in search of a fast start in cloud communications, VoipNow Cloud OnDemand is the best way to go," Ms. Carstoiu also added.

Along the years, VoipNow won many industry awards, namely four times in a row the Product of the Year Award granted by INTERNET TELEPHONY, Product of the Year Award presented by Unified Communications Magazine and was acknowledged as one of 2014 Top 3 call center software solutions by MyVoipProvider.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace.

Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network.
