The Basic Necessities to set up a VoIP Phone System
Have you been using a landline for years and only recently learned that cheaper bills and a better system for your home or business is available? The switch from landline to VoIP phone system can be a financial investment, but the switch pays off quickly in cheaper bills and better communication for a business.
In order to switch to a VoIP phone system, three factors must be considered. Those factors are internet connection, equipment and VoIP provider.
When considering a switch to VoIP, an upgrade to your current internet connection may be necessary. In order to support a VoIP connection, the internet must provide a fast and reliable data connection. For Australian VoIP users, a speed of 1.5Mb or faster is recommended in order to receive optimal quality VoIP service.
In terms of equipment, a wide variety is available. Some can work with equipment you already use, while others require additional cost in terms of hookup and quality equipment. Analog telephone adapters, for example, work with the current phones you own and connect them as part of the VoIP phone system. The ATA will include an ethernet port, ports to connect the telephone and may include an FXO line, all connected within a small box to help take up less room while linking the important pieces to the system.
Other options are dedicated VoIP handsets, which look similar to the telephones you already own but connect directly to the internet without needing an adapter. One other option to consider is to use the PC to make and receive phone calls. This may still require additional equipment if your PC has a lower quality microphone and/or speakers. However, that could be the cheaper option for some users.
Finally, the choice of a VoIP service provider is important to receiving the best quality service for the purpose your home or office requires of the VoIP phone system. For residential users, a provider such as Skype, the world's leading VoIP provider, is sufficient. Skype provides the ability to make calls between personal computers as well as to call landlines or even mobile phones. There is even a branch of Skype that can handle business calls, although some other providers may be better suited to provide VoIP service for a business. Research and consideration are a big factor in choosing a VoIP provider.
