Best Tips for Success
As more and more businesses are signing up for new VoIP telephone services, we're learning more about what's needed for a smooth transition. The following are some tips that will help guarantee a smooth transition from an old landline system to a new VoIP telephone system.
- Audit. First things first, start off by assessing any and all current technology being used. This includes network architecture, cabling infrastructure, security requirements overview and more.
- Bandwidth. It's important to make sure any bandwidth requirements are met in order to accommodate the number of telephone calls coming in. Compressing voice calls is fine, with a 2 to 1 compression considered acceptable.
- Network Visibility. In order to increase network visibility, using a variety of combined network management tools is necessary to properly manage performance.
- Voice vs. Data. New high-tech VoIP technology places a lot of emphasis on voice quality, which means it's important to understand that more of an emphasis is going to be placed on voice quality vs. company data.
Good to Know
Some businesses seem to think that signing up with more than one VoIP provider will somehow give them better service. It doesn't. Although signing up with more than one VoIP provider may seem like a good idea at the time, it's really important to have only one VoIP provider. If anything, signing up with more than one VoIP provider is going to cause confusion. This is why it's critical for every business to perform the necessary research so they can make sure that they've chosen the right VoIP service provider for their particular company.
