Here at Cohere Communications both voice quality and client security are of the utmost importance.
Anything involving the “public” internet usually stirs up a conversation about how secure the network you are working over actually is. This is obviously a huge concern for companies that rely almost solely on their phone services for the livelihood of their business.
At Cohere Communications, we use a unique business practice to ensure five nines of reliability for all of your mission critical communications systems. Instead of sending our VoIP services over the public internet we insist that our customers use point-to-point circuits (and highly recommend redundant circuits with separate paths). This not only permits us to ensure QoS (Quality of Service) but also permits us to lock down security.
Most VoIP providers use a public-to-point service for the delivery of their voice traffic. This is carried over the “public internet” possibly hitting multiple unknown networks with unknown security protocols. The following article goes into detail about potential problems calls may have while traveling over different LAN’s and WAN’s.
If your IP communications provider were Cohere, none of these would be necessary!
