Stuck Changing the SSL Certificate in VoipNow? Read This

We work tirelessly to keep our VoipNow users happy. To that end, one of the things we don’t do is to dump maintenance burdens on them. However, every now and then, VoipNow users are required to perform some actions on their end, such as swapping an old SSL certificate for a newer one.

For those who just landed here by accident, let me make your visit to our blog worthwhile. In plain English, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a security thing that basically encrypts the link between a server and your computer. It makes it hard for a hacker to eavesdrop on that connection (whatever the reason may be). All of the internet depends on this standard, so it’s not something typical to any software product or service. It’s a fact of life. Now, back to our VoipNow customers

How We Enable Crystal Clear Audio in VoipNow

Being in the business of developing enterprise-class communication and collaboration software for over a decade, we know a thing or two about audio and video quality. User experience is crucial when it comes to UC&C solutions. You can have as many features as you like. What matters is to make the best of them.

Studies have shown that “user experience” tops the list of complaints among conferencing users. This includes both the visual experience and the audio experience. UC tools that mess up on these aspects are about as useful as an old fax machine. Without good quality audio and / or video, conferencing is more of a pain than a perk. This is why we’ve placed tremendous focus on the codec side of VoipNow.
