  1. Is your network up to par – Do you have the necessary hardware in place?
  2. Is your cable infrastructure up to date – Do you have the copper / fiber in place to handle the necessary bandwidth required for quality voice?
  3. This is a Bandwidth dependant solution – do you have enough Bandwidth in place?
  4. This is a Power dependant solution – are you prepared – Have you taken the needed steps to have redundancy / to have a back up solution?
  5. Security – Is your network secure yet flexible enough to “allow” for toll quality voice calls?
*Plus... additional items to consider
    Does your provider have 911 support in place?
    Does your provider adhere to the tax laws?
    Have you chosen the best hardware to meet your Needs?
