VoIP Audio: Do You Hear What I Hear?

Posted by Allison Boccamazzo on Dec 22, 2016 8:46:30 AM

This holiday season, we’re hearing a lot of familiar sounds: bells ringing, choirs singing, the clacking of hooves during winter carriage rides. For VoIP-based businesses, however, the question isn’t necessarily “Do you hear what I hear?” but rather, “What don’t I hear that I should be?”
