VoIP is fairly new in the technology world and deciding whether this system is right for your company or not only seems a difficult task if you are not aware of what it is, or how it works. The advantages and disadvantages of VoIP have to be taken into consideration as well.
Voice over Internet Protocol is the use of telephone services over the internet and other network services. This system works with cable or a router and can be coordinated with office network systems. This type of communication connection is easier to use than conventional telephone systems and less expensive than making long distance calls.
Although this sounds good there is a down side. Cable and routers work by electricity, so if there is a power outage VoIP is rendered useless. Also, the connection is not always strong, so the person on the receiving end of the call hears static, or cannot here the person on the other end properly. This defeats the purpose of the product all together! Also be aware that if the VoIP shuts down the entire cloud network shuts down with it.
It is best to implement the program to only part of your network first. This will enable the continuation of productivity while also ‘test driving’ the new upgrade to see whether the connection negatively affects your network and also if reprogramming is necessary. To relieve any doubts, ask for a complete consultation from your VoIP provider to ensure that the upgrade transition is smooth, safe and secure.
