VoIP (voice over internet protocol) is a telecomm technology that allows people to have remote conversations through the Internet. This system works by converting voice into digital information and sent through the Internet to the destination device. VOIP in the world began to grow in 2.000 when IT Experts introduced it. VoIP refers to the technologies, communication protocols, methodologies, and transmission media that take part into the delivery of voice messages and multimedia files over Internet Protocol (IP) systems, such as the World Wide Web. Other terms usually associated with Voice over IP are Internet telephony, IP telephony, voice over broadband (VoBB), IP communications, broadband telephony, and broadband phone.
Some advantages of Voice over IP services are the following: lower cost and long distance, Voice over IP communications can connect 2 distant parties on the condition that both callers are connected to the internet. Another advantage is the use of already existing infrastructure, eliminating the need to build new infrastructure to VOIP. Voice over IP services are usually functional via local calls by being connected to PBX services in regular offices. VoIP can automatically connect 2 or more offices and the cost will be very low. Another advantage is a small bandwidth, usage is only eight kbps. Besides that, Voice over IP Services can be modified via software with a PC, IP phone, and other devices.
After knowing these benefits, it is not a wonder that many people are building VoIP servers. These server numbers are increasing. In Indonesia only, there are over 20 VoIP service providers. This trend will possibly continue to grow as VoIP services still have a lot of areas where it can be developed and brought into new levels never imagined before.

“Responsible Organizations” are abbreviated and called Resporgs. These organizations are the body which have full access to the SMS 800 database. There are about 300 resporgs in the USA. These enterprises are usually named the “registrars” in the domain-name dictionary. Many phone firms are Resporgs as well, but not all Resporgs are telecom firms.
What info is needed to transfer an 800 number?
If a number was being transferred by you from Bellsouth to another firm, would the firm you are sending it to require Bellsouth’s name, address, etc?
Whenever you’re porting a phone number from one firm to the other, there are several interrogations which will arise.
First of all, keep in mind that the only information the new firm will genuinely need, is your full name, address and basic contact info. They’ll also need the former carrier name and their Resporg ID. Generally, it is somehow easy for one resporg to look up and get contact info from the current resporg. A fax number from the resporg can be included too. Many of the Resporg forms are a bit confusing as some firms make it look messy or complex. It’ll look like these forms require a lot of info which in turn will use a lot of your precious time and patience.
As a general rule, ask the agent who’s questioning you ‘What would you have to do if you were porting a number from Bellsouth? If it was Bellsouth, will they still need a full address? Would it make any difference if they write down the address of the local billing office or from the main HQ? This simple example makes it crystal clear that the former firm’s address is not important or helpful at all. The full name and address of the customer is the only essential information that is needed, of course with an authorization to take the number.
The releasing firm doesn’t have to authorize the request or give any info about their company, except the name (and ID if it is known). All other info requested is irrelevant.
