Why use VOIP?

Trackable Cost Savings:

  • Moves, Adds and Changes (MACs)
  • Reduced Wiring
  • Reduced Telecommuter and Branch Office expenses
  • IT Staff consolidation
  • Application consolidation
  • Toll bypass

Soft Cost Savings:

  • Single inbox for messages (Voicemail/Fax/Email)
  • Extension Mobility (Saves office space – roaming profiles for phones)
  • Internet Website Integration (Happy Customers)
  • Open Architecture (multi-vendor Solution)

How to Migrate
Some companies may simply buy a new VOIP system outright. Some have existing PBX systems so might use a two phase approach.

  • Phase 1 – keep existing equipment such as PBX and telephones and then re-equip routers (or buy new ones) that permit connections from the PBX to the WAN or PSTN.  The routers can then make a decision on whether to route calls across the WAN to the other PBX or out to the PSTN.
  • Phase 2 – rip out existing system and completely replace with new VOIP equipment.
