Reliable Equipment Solution to VOIP

by msikes In reply to Consider these issues whe ...

We have been doing VOIP for three years. Granted at first, we had some problems. But today, with Mitel, HP and Data Voice installations have been going extremely well. I have a Teleworker phone at home and no one knows it until I tell them. The quality is excellent.

Things Have Changed

This article seems like it was written 3 years ago (a lifetime).

While the premise of the article is correct, businesses do need to make sure the infrastructure they are installing VoIP over is adequate, the point of waiting until the technology matures is a complete miss.

We are installing VoIP systems for even small companies. Even the systems that I believe have serious shortcoming (i.e. rhymes with Crisco) have solved most of the issues brought up in this article.

End result is, with the productivity increases and ease of management and use, if ANY company purchases a legacy phone system without at least looking at a high quality VoIP system (check out ShoreTel.com they are the fastest growing players in this space) they are doing themselves a disservice.

Re: Things have changed

by Mike Mullins In reply to Things Have Changed

You're right when you say things have changed. However, it's a fact that security architectures are generally last on the budget. So as technology evolves, security can lag behind. Better businesses don't tend to be on the "bleeding edge" of security and chose tested products and tend to go with the "wait and see approach".

I hope your company continues it success selling VOIP.
