What do you need to start a VoIP business?

What do I need to start a VoIP business?Whether you are starting a new venture, or already have an existing VoIP business up and running, you need a variety of providers who can offer the right products and services.

VoIP Termination
These providers carry your outbound SIP traffic from your softswitch, convert it into an analog format, and then deliver it to the PSTN to be sent to its final destination.

VoIP Origination (DIDs)
DID providers originate your VoIP traffic, bringing it from the PSTN, converting it from analog to SIP, and then delivering it to your softswitch.  VoIP Origination providers offer DIDs, the phone numbers and toll-free numbers that your users need to receive calls from the PSTN.

IP Phones
IP phones and other end points are the devices your customers use for Hosted PBX and other VoIP services.  Other types of SIP end points you can offer to your users are ATAs, door access units, paging speakers, and more.

A fast-growing, highly-flexible part of the business is offering VoIP service via a softphone instead of IP phone hardware.  You can chose from mobile softphones, desktop softphones for computers, and even web-based softphones, known as WebRTC.

This service can be used for two-way communications between your users and the people they message, as well as one-way utility functions such as billing notifications.  In many cases, your DID provider will offer SMS-enabled DIDs that can handle two-way messaging from compatible devices.

Do you offer services in jurisdictions that tax telecom services?  A taxation solution provider can assist you to keep track of the fast-changing tax rates in many jurisdictions, both in the US and other countries.

Voicemail and Voicemail Transcription
Many VoIP services may require voicemail.  As a premium add-on service,  you may wish to also consider offering voicemail transcription as a source of additional recurring revenue.

How do you put all these services together into a cohesive offer that you bring to your customers and resellers?
