VoIP Switch - VoIP and Why You Should Make the Switch Now

December 31, 2012


The decision to switch to VoIP is a big one for any business or household, but it comes with other decisions that must be made after the fact. One of these decisions is choosing the Internet service to use in conjunction with VoIP.

Below are some of the different options you have.

If you have an analog telephone line, then you can consider a DSL connection as an option. The downsides are that being in a remote location will hinder speed and your Internet will require a physical cable. If it needs to be repaired or replaced, it can set you back a couple hundred dollars which is something no company needs.

For those in remote locations, satellite is probably your best bet. Your service comes straight from your personal dish meaning the number of Internet users won’t have an effect on your connectivity speed. There is also no fear of downed wires, but you will need to be wary of any damage the dish experiences.

Another option is your choice of cable provider. As you probably have seen, many cable companies are starting to bundle wireless internet with their TV service. The concern, however, is the number of users you plan on having on your VoIP system. Too many users will slow the speed of connection down.

The last two options you have are to set up your own wireless network at home or in the office or to use a public wireless network. A private network tends to work very well with VoIP, especially if you intend on having multiple users. Public networks on the other hand may force you to dial up which will significantly slow down your overall VoIP system.

If you are still looking for an ideal VoIP provider to meet your individual organization needs, then you can look at the cost-effective offering Sippy Softswitch. Basic licenses are available at prices starting at $6,900 per server. This includes license cost, installation and configuration costs, as well as a 12-month support and maintenance contract. And for businesses that aren’t interested in hardware, it also offers Software-as-a-Solution packages.
