Enterprises and SMBs that have the need for a more cost-effective, scalable and flexible telephony system have one obvious solution: VoIP. Unfortunately, too many businesses hold off on migrating to VoIP due to a number of perceived challenges.
Common reasons for maintaining a legacy phone system include concerns over LAN upgrade costs, reliability and the downtime often associated with VoIP installations. One simple solution to overcoming these hurdles is the Phybridge (News - Alert) UniPhyer, dubbed the VoIP enabler, which leverages a company's existing infrastructure to create a robust IP phone network through a brief, non-disruptive migration.
By centrally connecting an IP PBX (News - Alert) to a network's existing LAN, the VoIP enabler allows enterprises and SMBs to enjoy all the benefits of VoIP without any of the headaches.
One of Phybridge's recent partnerships was with a large financial company with more than 1,400 users. After completing their IP telephony cutover this past weekend, Phybridge asked the firm how its backbone performed. "Flawless!!" was the immediate response.
Phybridge credited the company for listening to its common-sense approach for supporting IP-based voice. "It is this forward thinking by the customer, combined with the robustness of the Phybridge solution and the leveraging of an existing proven-reliable asset (voice infrastructure) that ensured the customer's success," Phybridge noted in a release.
By partnering with Phybridge, the financial services firm not only took advantage of the power of VoIP, it also saved more than $1.5 million in potential costs while completing the entire project in a fraction of the time.
Companies that wish to undertake an effortless and cost-effective migration to VoIP should check out Phybridge's new white paper, "Future Proofing Your Communication Platform," which explains how the company can optimize a customer's LAN for convergence and simplify management while reducing both costs and network requirements.
