Reliance on just one high speed data service leaves business owners vulnerable to failures Redundancy is not an “optional item” whether you have the NBN or not. In fact it is a crucial element of the overall telephony and data solution.
Think of it as Insurance. Simple yet vital DR components of any NBN Ready solution must include failure options for voice, data and security.
Smart business owners plan for disasters and take their recovery strategy very seriously.
Setting and managing expectations is an important part of a successful NBN Ready VoIP deployment. Any institution considering migrating to VoIP must carefully evaluate the many options to determine the point at which the benefits of VoIP outweigh the limitations. However, a highly decentralised IT environment would pose another layer of complexity for a VoIP line implementation.
Imagine you’ve just bought a brand new 50” Flat screen TV, digital, high definition – it’s the latest technology. In the shop the picture looked crystal clear. You get it home, take it out of that huge cardboard box and then connect it up. You start to get frustrated because the picture is fuzzy and breaking up – nothing like it was at the shop. After carefully reading the instruction manual you realise the problem is that 25-year-old rusty antenna on your roof. It’s good enough for the old TV but it just doesn’t cut it for digital.
What’s this got to do with VoIP? Glad you asked! Just like using a rusty old antenna with a brand new digital TV, many companies have tried to use the Internet for their VoIP. And just like that rusty old antenna, the Internet simply doesn’t cut it when it comes to VoIP for business use.
That’s where I come in. VoIP needs to be delivered properly. It’s like hooking up cable TV directly into your brand new 50” flat screen TV. You get perfect quality and a heap more features!
