Businesses that choose to use VoIP systems instead of traditional copper-wire telephone systems experience many benefits such as reducing their monthly phone costs, increased mobility and productivity among others. In 2008 80% of all new PBX lines installed internationally were VoIP.
VoIP PBX systems provide mobility to employees, flexibility when a business expands as they are much easier to manage than the traditional PBX, and can also considerably reduce telephony administration costs.
In addition, a business VoIP PBX system can offer you:
- Easy installation & management
- Ability to leverage your existing server hardware
- Fault tolerance via easy backup and restore
- Integration with your existing business apps
What is VoIP?
VoIP is an acronym for Voice Over Internet Protocol, which by itself means voice over the internet. It’s a technology that delivers voice communication and multimedia sessions (such as video) over Internet Protocol (IP) networks.
For the past 50 years companies have been using conventional PBX & telephony systems which require separate networks for voice and data communications. But with the new VoIP telephony revolution, businesses are quickly migrating to VoIP PBX systems, which offer the huge advantage of converging data and voice networks.
