Office Telephone Systems
Vintek are specialists at providing VoIP phone systems to businesses both large and small. The VoIP phone systems that we supply and install allow companies to take advantage of features such as:
- Low cost or free national and international calls.
- Free inter-site calls anywhere in the world.
- Remote worker capability, where the agent will be on the same VoIP phone system as the rest of the company, no matter where they are located. This can be a great help if you require someone to answer a call from a different office or location.
- Intelligent call routing, where the system can divert calls to another office, regardless of the office location, after a predefined time. For instance one of our clients directs calls using their VoIP phone system after 5pm to their alternate office, and then back at 9am, meaning that no calls are missed.
Whatever your requirements are, Vintek will be able to consult and advise on a VoIP phone system solution that meets them.
What is VoIP, Voice over IP?
Voice Over IP, VoIP, or put simply "using the internet for a voice telephone call" has emerged into mainstream telecoms. Using relatively simple technology, the services and providers are now in place which can now deliver a reliable, high-quality solution at very low cost.
Most businesses and individuals who are internet users now have broadband connections to the internet. Users can spend all day downloading data from the other side of the world at no added cost. And yet, when those same users make a phone call they are charged by the minute or second, whether the call is national or international. In practice the data may well travel over exactly the same route, on the same wires, owned by the same people. Only the billing mechanism and price is different. Voice over IP simply routes the telephone call over the internet connection.
Another attractive VoIP application for many businesses would be to connect home workers and sub-offices. The only on-going cost at each site would be the charge for an always-on internet connection. The remote sites could use the internet connection to log-in to the main office network and also run their telephones as extensions to the main office phone system.
In principle you can use Voice over IP to communicate with anyone else on the internet that is similarly equipped, or has VoIP software on their computer.
A single voice call requires at least 64Kbps of the connection. What this means is that a minimum ADSL-type internet connection can carry up to 4 simultaneous VoIP calls. For more concurrent calls, a bigger broadband internet connection is required.
Suitable connection types include:
- ADSL Broadband
- Leased Line
Voice over IP, VoIP Phones
VoIP Phones connect directly to your network via an ethernet connection and provide quick and easy access to internet based telephony. For this type of phone, a gateway is not required.
A Voice over IP Gateway is a device which connects a standard telephone or other device (such as a fax machine) to a computer network or internet connection.
