VoIP, which means Voice over Internet Protocol, is now one of the most affordable and easy-to-use ways to provide your business with an effective and efficient telephone line. Business VoIP enjoys all the benefits and features that come along with traditional telephone service, without the cost and added expenses. VoIP is an internet-based telephone solution that provides telephony functionality for businesses in a more affordable manner. Hosted PBX solutions are a practical choice for virtually any business that is looking to save money by switching to a hosted PBX system.
A hosted PBX system provides you with the functionality you need while still maintaining the integrity of your existing telephone network. The hosted solution consists of a router along with servers at various locations. The routers take the responsibility of both serving as the VoIP gateway and acting as a customer connection gateway. This provides the ability to switch between VoIP phones and regular phone networks and allows you to manage your business communication infrastructure from any location.
In addition, a hosted VoIP solution offers complete solutions for VoIP services such as SIP trunks, IVR systems, soft phones, and extension dialing among others. Many of these features are available only through VoIP services as an added feature. Hosted PBX solutions are capable of providing these features in their most efficient manner.
One of the most important benefits of VoIP over public switched telephone networks (PSTN) is the level of reliability and dependability that is provided by the service. When compared to traditional IP telephony networks, VoIP is consistently reliable and offers a better performance level. This is because the traffic that goes through VoIP uses very little bandwidth and the large number of calls that are made over VoIP systems reduces the probability of encountering problems. The level of connectivity and speed that VoIP provides to businesses is also a contributing factor to its reliability. RingCentral offers VoIP services to hundreds of businesses in over forty different countries.
Another major benefit of VoIP is that there are no significant outlay costs associated with it.
Compared to a traditional PSTN based business phone service, a VoIP solution requires very little equipment to set up the service and there are no long term contracts required to use the technology. There are a variety of different pricing plans that are offered by VoIP service providers and these vary from one provider to the next. VoIP is not regulated by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), so each VoIP provider can provide the service in the way that they see fit.
With the competitive rates and quality of VoIP services available today,
avaya’s unmatched enterprise technology is an exceptional value. VoIP solutions are able to deliver high-quality voice and video transmissions to end users with significant clarity and no dropped calls. In addition, the superior quality of VoIP allows for seamless integration with existing business applications. Customers can use their phones to make inbound and outbound calls and can connect to existing hardware as well. This enables business customers to maximize their on-site or remote phone service options.
As organizations or business grows, expansion is inevitable, and this is where a VoIP service provider can really prove useful. An example of this would be the case where a corporation owns several branches in different geographic locations. Rather than contracting with a traditional phone line carrier to provide local service, expansion can be expedited by utilizing a VoIP provider who has established international roaming agreements with other local providers. This gives the international expansion company the opportunity to offer a variety of calling plans, even to locations that are not covered under the company’s domestic services.
