What is VoIP?

OUR SOLUTIONS

Voice Over Internet Protocol, or VoIP, is a phone configuration that allows your company or organization to make phone calls over your existing internet connection, rather than traditional Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).

The Internet Protocol (IP) was originally designed for data networking and following its success, the protocol has been adapted to voice networking by packetizing the information and transmitting it as IP data packets. VoIP is now available on many smartphones, personal computers and mobile devices such as tablets.

Voice over IP (VoIP) can facilitate tasks and deliver services that might be cumbersome or costly to implement when using traditional PSTN, including:

  • More than one phone call can be transmitted on the same broadband phone line.
  • Features for which telecommunication companies usually charge extra are included with VoIP.
  • Unified Communications are secured with VoIP technology as it allows integration with other services available on the internet such as video calls, messaging, etc.

These, and many other advantages of voice over IP, are making businesses adopt VoIP phone systems at a staggering pace.

Is VoIP reliable?

OUR SOLUTIONS

The way that VoIP is set up today makes it extremely reliable. You can connect to crystal clear calls around the world with a ShoreTel system, and often for a fraction of the cost. Further, VoIP offers continuity for your business, allowing you to keep operations up and running via phones, internet, and mobile devices in the event of an emergency or natural disaster.

I USED VONAGE/SKYPE/MAGICJACK/ETC AND THE VOICE QUALITY WAS TERRIBLE. HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT?

TELL ME MORE

This type of provider generally uses the public Internet, where call quality might be spotty and DSL or cable lines can go out from time to time. This is fine for consumer use, but our clients expect perfect calls and non-stop dial tone. That’s why we connect to our customers via a private connection. Keep in mind that, Vonage, cable companies, and Skype are primarily selling to individuals, we provide a virtual PBX service to business exclusively.

If I switch to VoIP can I keep my phone number?

TELL ME MORE

Yes, in most cases you can keep your office phone numbers with a new VoIP system. Our team takes great effort to make this transition as seamless as possible.

I HAVE MULTIPLE LOCATIONS. CAN WE DIAL BETWEEN THESE LOCATIONS?

TELL ME MORE

Absolutely. Our system facilitates 4-digit dialing between offices and remote locations.
