PBX systems are migrating to VoIP phone systems because the technology and IP network has improved through time. The United Sates IP network is one of the most powerful in the world with approximately 152,000 connections to the IP Network. In comparison, countries like China have only three. For the US customer this delivers a large and powerful network over which data can be transferred.
With the build-out of the IP network, businesses have been increasing their usage to include phone services. The result is, today, more and more phone systems are going to VoIP. The basic set up works like this: all traffic leaving the customers phone goes through building network (IT network) then passes through firewall to IP network. It continues to the VoIP provider (YeaVoice) Then, the VoIP provider (Yeavoice) passes the data transmission to other major carriers via global IP network. Whether the phone system is hosted in the building or hosted in the cloud the transmission concept is the same; once connection is made to internet the phone will take over the traffic.
Advantages driving the VoIP business phone transition are aligned with basic business needs.
First, a VoIP business can save the customer money. The savings are derived from the reduction in the requirement of back end phone lines that need to be provided for any given business, large or small. T1 network cables provide a digital connection rather than the traditional analog connection. T1 networking with its two copper wire construction can support 24 phone lines or 1.54 MB of data transmission.
The expense of maintaining what was in the past a closet of traditional analog wiring reserved for a phone system in building is diminishing. Businesses are seeing that they can save monthly operating cost with a switch to VoIP as they reduce the wiring systems and expensive circuits needed to create and maintain traditional systems. Since the IP infrastructure has grown both in a macro and micro sense, businesses now can take advantage of its existence to move phone traffic to what was once data lines reserved for internet traffic alone with few issues in call clarity and or internet traffic slow downs.
EASE OF ADMINISTRATION:
The ease of use for VoIP has become a strong reason why business customers are making the switch to VoIP. Modern VoIP systems can be managed remotely. The allowance of a remote administrator to add lines, make user changes and manage the overall system is a huge advantage. It saves companies both man power and dollars. Technical support departments are able to utilize VoIP business phone systems to provide an upgrade suite of apps and services to support their company’s needs.
FLEXIBILITY OF PHONE SYSTEM:
Closely related to the advantage of a remote administrator is the advantage of overall flexibility of a VoIP business phone system. Users themselves have tremendous flexibility in how the phone system can support their daily actions. An employee at a business using VoIP phone systems can have calls transferred from directly from their physical offices to another location if that employee happens to be working from home or a hotel. They also have the advantage using VoIP business phone connections to have office based calls transferred seamlessly to cell phones when they are out on the road.
MAKING THE TRANSITION TO VOIP PHONE SERVICE:
As a business’s assess the practicality of transitioning to a VoIP business phone system, they will take into account the IT structure at their building, the pros and cons of centralized administration of services and the needs of their staff to determine their best choices.
Companies like YeaVoice, experienced in VoIP business phone transitions, will help customers determine their best course of action.
