Agenda: (yes, we have an agenda) Hard Truths Types of VoIP Systems Things You Should Know Compare Hosted to In-House Ellegents Value Pricing Return on Investment How it Works & What You Have Questions
Phone systems, as we have known them, will no longer exist in 10 years. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) will be the basis for all phones for the next 20 years. Hosted (Cloud) PBX solutions offer more flexibility than an in-house system. For small businesses with one location, in-house VoIP systems make sense. VoIP Phones are expensive (not yet available at Walmart). Telephony is changing The hard truths of business:
Types of VoIP Systems In-House High First year Costs per location. Inexpensive when figured over 5 year life expectancy Uses the same Internet lines that Hosted PBX uses Hosted Fixed annual costs, phones can be rolled into monthly payments. Great for businesses with multiple locations % uptime for the phone system.
Things You Should Know All major Cloud providers either have or will have a Hosted PBX solution by 2014, that includes Microsoft. When IPv6 is fully implemented in late 2014, Hosted Phones Systems and Voice over Internet will be used more than cellular! A single Hosted PBX will support IP phones at multiple locations, software phones on a PC or Laptop and APP phones on a smart phone or iPod like device. Currently Quality of Service (QoS), which is the quality of voice, is similar to Cellular, but when IPv6 is implemented, QoS will be similar if not better than analog phones. Current SIP QoS IP phones may not be compatible with IPv6.
