Changing your business communications to a VoIP phone system is a necessary move. With that said, change is not always easy. If you want the best service available with VoIP, then you need to know what gives the service the best performance. These are the critical components of a VoIP system that will elevate your business operations.
A Standalone Local Network
A large majority of our work is done online. The transfer of files, emails, storage, etc. The more your business works online, the more likely your network is to become congested. You wouldn’t want your brand-new VoIP system suffering because too many people are using the internet, right? It is wise to give your VoIP service a separate network for all of your incoming and outgoing calls.
Strong Internet Connection
Bandwidth is the amount of information your network can handle in a certain amount of time. So, the higher your bandwidth, the faster your network can move things. Considering that all of your business calls will run through your network, it’s wise to upgrade before installing VoIP.
How often does your business have incoming and outgoing calls? If it is a lot then you are going to need to take count. It can help you determine if your bandwidth is strong enough to handle your VoIP service. And if you have a lot of international clients, then VoIP will provide you with cheaper rates for long distance calls.
Have a PSTN Backup
A Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) is the interconnected public networks that the world uses. In some circles, it is also known as a Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS). If for any reason your internet fails, this will make a good backup to have.
