Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) - this is ideal for all different types of business whether your small medium large. One of the main advantages is being able to control costs because you were making phone calls across your Internet or broadband connection which you have already paid for. There are many services out there who have lots of other features and benefits built into their VOIP services they provide giving you lots of little functionality which would expect from having a phone system in your office.
For VoIP traffic, you ll need to make sure that both your network and PBX can handle the expected call volume. There are special considerations for VoIP beyond the telephony aspect. The network will also need to be scaled out in the event of future growth and your current network configuration and utilization should be taken in to account anytime you anticipate a greater need for network bandwidth. Nothing will kill voice quality more than contention for bandwidth on the network and it s imperative that a network assessment be completed prior to VoIP s implementation.
Another consideration with business phone systems is the number of phone lines coming in. Smaller systems typically have single lines that come in to a trunk group. This trunk group would allow one call per line and depending on the number of calls you anticipate processing each day, you would be limited to the number of single lines coming in to the phone system. Ask your vendor about the ability of the business phone system to interface with T-1 circuits. T-1 circuits are more expensive than an individual single-line, however they can accommodate up to 23 calls at the same time. If the phone system purchased cannot accommodate T-1 s, then you are limited to multiple single lines. Depending on the number of single lines needed, the cost of individual lines could be more than one T-1.
Can you bundle it with your phone bill- Many businesses cannot afford the costs of a PBX system if they pay for the phone upfront. Will your telecommunications service provider allow you to finance the cost of your phone system and pay it off over 24 months?
