We all know cloud has been the buzz word over the last few years, and with less misplaced fear over security and more clarity and understanding that Hosted solutions offer peace of mind, we are going to walk you through some jargon-free advice so you can consider whether hosting your voice solution in the cloud is right for YOU.
How does Telecoms work in the cloud?
Telephony over the cloud is the delivery of technology as a service rather than a product, like a utility but over an internet connection. Because it is an internet based service, you are also freed from wired connectivity and can expand voice capability into wireless & mobile data zones too.
Who typically benefits from Hosted voice most?
Businesses who require flexibility for remote workers.
Those who need a Disaster Recovery plan.
Multiple site organisations requiring 1 system.
If I don’t have a huge internet connection, would it jeopardise Hosted voice?
Whilst a larger connection never harmed anyone, Voice calls actually only use up 75Kb per call, meaning if there is an office where 10 people are on hosted calls simultaneously, that would only use 1Mb of internet bandwidth which would hardly even touch the sides on most business connections. The key with connectivity is to ensure it is stable, with low latency and contention.
