HOW DOES VOIP PHONE SERVICE WORK?
In its simplest terms, VoIP phone service means transmitting Voice over the internet. By contrast, traditional phone service is transmitted over copper wires. The infrastructure is in place to route phone calls back and forth between the internet and the copper circuits. This allows VoIP phone service to work and typically VoIP service is a fraction of the cost of traditional phone service.

PREMISE VOIP VS. CLOUD OR HOSTED VOIP
There is much confusion about VoIP as it relates to premise or cloud-based phone systems. Many people think of VoIP phone systems as being the same as a cloud phone system. In reality, a premise based pbx can be either VoIP or non-VoIP. On the other hand, hosted phone systems are almost always VoIP phone systems.

FULL VOIP VS. HYBRID VOIP
VoIP comes in different flavors. You don’t have to go fully VoIP. You can implement a hybrid VoIP system where your phone lines are traditional analog or PRI, and your phones are IP. Conversely, you can implement a hybrid VoIP system with digital phones and SIP trunks. You can also implement a VoIP system with a mix of analog, PRI, SIP trunks, and digital or IP phones. A great hybrid VoIP phone system like Avaya allows you to grow into a VoIP phone system if you are not quite ready to take the plunge now. Our experts can guide you through determining the best way to configure a phone system.
VOIP PHONE SERVICE FEATURES
VoIP phone systems and traditional phone systems share many features. A typical phone system has more than 250 features, many of which may never be used by the typical business. The following is a list of features unique to a VoIP phone service:
Hot Desking: This is the ability to move your extension by logging into a phone somewhere on your network. This is very handy for companies with employees that frequently visit other locations.
Mobile Twinning: This is the ability to ring two phones simultaneously, such as your desk phone and your cell phone.
SIP Trunks: This replaces traditional analog or POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) lines with internet-based phone service. The advantages include a lower cost per channel or call path, long distance is usually included and unlimited, some SIP trunk providers allow for call bursting which is the ability for you to receive more phone calls than call paths you are paying for.
There are numerous other features only available in a VoIP phone system. For more information call us now for a free consultation.
VOIP PHONE SERVICE READINESS
Is your business prepared to use a VoIP phone system? One of the issues we look at is what kind of wiring do you have? The good news is there are many ways to implement VoIP, so you don’t necessarily need to install cat-5 or cat-6 wiring if you already have it in place for your internet service. VoIP phone service can share the same wiring as long as you configure your network properly and use a switch that has the intelligence to manage and separate the voice and data traffic.
Another thing we check is the stability and speed of your bandwidth. An initial test can be done with a tool such as speedtest.clearfly.net. This will give you an idea of whether your existing internet connection will be reliable enough to handle VoIP traffic. If you have multiple locations and want to network them together, the testing gets more complicated buy it can be done by an experienced VoIP phone company such as Firefly Telecom.
