In the age of cellular technology, GSM voice is dominating the market. But how does it stack up against traditional fixed landlines?
What is GSM voice?
If you have a cell phone, it most likely uses GSM (Global System for Mobile) to connect to your service provider’s network. In fact, as of 2018, this is true of 90% of all cell phones in nearly 200 countries!
The benefits of GSM Voice
1. It’s cost-effective
Through GSM SIM termination, GSM voice provides callers with advanced LCR (Least-Cost Routing) technology to achieve significant savings on call charges.
2. It’s secure
Cyber-crime is at an all-time high, with criminals finding increasingly nefarious means of infiltrating our communication. GSM voice maintains a secure system through encryption algorithms and complex authentication challenges, random access keys, ciphering, subscriber confidentiality and device security, all of which add layers of protection.
3. It’s fast
GSM speeds vary depending on the network, location and other factors. However, theoretical speeds for GSM connections are excellent for businesses – allowing you to handle all your communication quickly and efficiently.
How do fixed landlines compare?
While fixed landlines are the traditional method of calling, the rise of cellular technology has resulted in fewer and fewer people owning a dedicated landline phone.
Landline phones do have some advantages, such as high-quality, reliable audio and being relatively easy and low-cost to purchase. However, they fall short in terms of actual call costs. Unlike GSM voice, fixed landlines can quickly rack up some high charges, especially when it comes to long-distance or international calls. This is a major flaw for companies that regularly deal with overseas customers and clients.
GSM voice comes out on top
In short, while fixed landlines are unlikely to go anywhere anytime soon, GSM voice is the clear frontrunner of the future.
