Unless you’ve been in a cave for the past twenty or so years, you’re probably already aware that you don’t need the telephone company to make a phone call anymore.
All you need is a computer connected to the Internet.
That’s VOIP or Voice Over Internet Protocol which is technology that digitizes sound, splits that sound into “packets” of information and then transmits those packets over an IP network. VOIP essentially delivers sound to the computer via telephones connected to the IP network.
The advantage is there’s no phone company to charge you fees to make a call. Long distance – even international calls – are virtually free.
And means a business can take advantage of this technology to reduce costs and even tie together all its information services. Office phones, voice mail and email, for examples.
We recommend Cisco communications systems as great ways to take advantage of VOIP for your office. Like these:
- The Cisco Unified Communications Solution offers all the features you’d find in your typical PBX and Centrex system: voice mail, presence management, find-me/follow-me functions, directories and least-cost routing. The Solution utilizes network routers, switches, software and other standards-based networking gear.
- The Cisco Smart Business Communications System extends Unified Communications to smaller organizations. It’s a complete system of voice, data, video and wireless network products that offers a new way to reach, serve and retain customers. And it’s scalable, so it can grow as your business does.
We’ll be glad to come over and give you a complete assessment of your business communications needs and possibilities. It’s free, of course, and there’s no obligation.
Just give us a call at 484.443.4000. Which just might be the last time you use the phone company.
