Why Your Office is Ready for a VoIP Phone System
You may be thinking that switching to a VoIP provider is a complicated process, but there are only a few things that you will need in order to incorporate VoIP into your office:
- High Speed Internet - The most important requirement for a VoIP system is broadband Internet access. Because VoIP technology uses the Internet to transmit telephone calls, your office must have high-speed Internet in order for the system to work. Before switching to a VoIP phone, make sure that your current network will be able to handle the additional traffic that will be created by sending and receiving phone calls. Your service provider can test the capacity of your network to ensure it has the capabilities to run smoothly.
- VoIP Adapter Because VoIP converts the sound of your voice into packets which get sent via an Internet connection, you cannot use your current office phone to make calls with a VoIP system. VoIP adapters connect to your existing phone and allow you to make VoIP calls. Most VoIP companies can and will provide you with a digital phone system made for VOIP services. Though you can use a computer with a microphone, or replace your office phones with specialized VoIP phones (which can be very costly), purchasing a VoIP adapter is an easy and cost-effective solution.
If you already have a high-speed Internet connection, youre well on your way to installing a VoIP system into your office.
