Cutting the Telephone Cord of the PSTN System

Since Alexander Graham Bell made the first phone call to his assistant Watson, the phone has come a long way. But now, the standard phone system (PSTN) as we know it is nearing its final days. Thanks to Internet technology, the ability to make phone calls over the Internet using VoIP technology is proving to be the cheaper and more efficient alternative.

The upside is that most business class VoIP systems will offer you the same features you’re used to with your current phone system. Typically, this includes call forwarding, call waiting, conferencing, and voice mail. Additionally, most VoIP systems include data and application sharing and the ability to transmit video with your voice.

Like any new technology, VoIP has its pros and cons- depending on your specific business, budget, and needs. Allow us to take a look at your current phone system and give you a customized pro and con analysis of making the upgrade to VoIP.
