The VoIP industry is ever-changing, but lately it seems to be swooped up in a rather transformative period. Where some may have seemed to hit a concrete wall, others seem to be flourishing.
At the end of the day, it comes down to having the right tools for the job. Consider VoIP phones, which should work to be easily manageable and allow seamless SIP operation. Patton (News - Alert) Electronics has worked to remain fresh in this evolving space, specifically with its renowned and newly Microsoft Lync certified SmartNode Product Line, which demolishes traditionally encountered incompatibility and inconsistency issues.
Take, for example, the 3CX Phone (News - Alert) System for Windows – a software-based IP PBX that works to replace a proprietary hardware PBX/PABX altogether with a Web-based administration, which makes the phone system effortlessly manageable. This phone system is also specifically designed for Microsoft Windows and is based on the session initiation protocol (SIP) standard, supporting both SIP soft and hard phones, as well as VoIP services and traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN) lines.
Even more, users will enjoy immediate and significant savings by investing in this solution, as it can drastically reduce all costs simply by using a VoIP service provider. Users will see even higher levels of simplicity in the 3CX Phone System in its ability to eliminate the phone wiring network, therefore enabling users to easily work remotely – an escalating trend in the industry today.
Furthermore, users can enjoy the advantages which come with Unified Communications (News - Alert) (UC) by harnessing the power of this phone system, such as conferencing, presence, drag and drop call transferring and instant messaging.
Even better, it’s available as both an iPhone (News - Alert) and Android app. Needless to say it serves as a very ideal business phone solution.
What happens if you need to leverage your existing telephony equipment that would normally be incompatible in an IP environment, though? You’ll be missing out on all of the benefits described above, but a complete overhaul of your existing telephony infrastructure is simple unrealistic; not only is it the most undesirable approach, but it proves to be an outright inconvenience.
You also have to take into consideration the potential risks of starting brand new with an unfamiliar VoIP service provider, as well as the fact that there may also be concerns over the initial capital necessary for purchasing new VoIP equipment – and basic reliability concerns regarding data connectivity for VoIP calling.
Patton’s Microsoft Lync Certified SmartNode Product line directly addresses this common issue. Gone are the days of incompatibility and inconsistency. For example, installing a SmartNode VoIP Gateway (News - Alert) (such as the SmartNode 4660 VoIP Gateway Router) immediately enables either small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) or larger enterprises worldwide to enjoy the added benefits of a software-based IP-PBX – all while continuing to use their trusted PSTN lines and phone equipment.
