VoIP (or Voice Over Internet Protocol) is a technology that allows for the delivery of voice communications using the Internet. Referred to as IP Telephony, this technology allows people to make calls via their Internet connection rather than the traditional public switched telephone network. A major advantage of Internet telephony is that it avoids the tolls charged by ordinary telephone service and can save you a great deal of money on long distance phone calls.
The quality and reliability of IP Telephony service is constantly improving with new features being added all the time. With IP Phone Systems, you can enjoy all of the same features that you currently have with your standard phone system and much more.
Key Benefits of VoIP:
With VoIP on your network, you no longer need to run separate cabling for your telephone system. Scalability
Traditional PBX based commercial phone systems come in several size ranges and as a company grows it may be necessary to periodically scrap an existing system to meet the increased traffic demand and replace existing hardware. This, however, is not the case with VoIP systems. Reduced Operating
Because a VoIP exchange is based on software rather than hardware, it is easier to alter and maintain. Increased Productivity
Speak with a client, attach documents or images to your voice messages, and instant message simultaneously. Take your meetings to a new level – participate in virtual conferencing utilizing shared data and video. Flexibility
If your company has its own virtual private network (VPN), you can add VoIP to it and be able to run a fully functioning office from any location that has a broadband connection.
Many organizations see the cost-benefits of VoIP systems and are converting to this technology. The experts at Advanced Communications & Maintenance will discuss the benefits and challenges of integrating a VoIP system into your business as well as explore the costs of such a conversion.
