Messaging VoIP GlossaryMessaging



In computer telephony, any means of message store and forward. This includes fax mail, voice mail and broadcast messaging. This horizontal application is the most popular of all other voice solutions. Messaging systems provide for the store and forward of "non-real time" communication. For example, a recorded voice message can be stored for later play back either locally or remotely, or a fax can be received and stored before it is re-transmitted to the ultimate recipient. Messages, then, can vary in content and media type - the distinction being that they are recorded or stored for pick up in the future. The time between original storage and retrieval of a message can be created and stored by a sales manager for later retrieval by multiple (worldwide) sales people. The sales staff can listen to the message at different times over an extended period. This is due to the nature if random retrieval by the recipients in their respective time zones. Messaging systems are a kind of "shared tenant" answering machine, because messages that were intended for as many as a thousand or more users can be stored and controlled by the same system. If a community of users agree on some basic ground rules, messages can be shared, forwarded, and distributed to multiple recipients in the same fashion as e-mail.
