5 things to look for when considering VOIP telephones - 22/02/2015

module it

Suddenly, I‘m seeing a number of posts on local Facebook groups asking for advice on VOIP systems. These immediately get hit with loads of adverts for various systems but frankly, very little in the way of sensible advice.

1. Whatever system you go for make sure you‘ve got sufficient broadband. If you‘re using a standard ADSL broadband then remember that your upload speed is the limiting factor.

2. Make sure you separate Voice from Data. This can be done electronically on very fast broadband but usually means having a second dedicated broadband for Voice. This is still cheaper than ISDN which is the only other practical way of having multiple lines.

3. Avoid on premises equipment where possible, it rarely works well as you‘re relying on your local broadband connection for everything except internal calls.

4. Get your cabling and switching right. 90% of the problems we see are caused by poor cables or switches rather than the system.

5. Don‘t under invest, buy decent VOIP handsets and listen to the advise. We almost always recommend a free trial to see if the system will suit your organisation. Remember, poor quality telephony is more likely to damage your business than slow computers!
