IP Phone Features That Will Make Your Life Better
VoIP has plenty of mainstream appeal for business, but many companies have yet to discover the perks of IP phones. In fact, research firm In-Stat found that while total IP phone annual shipments will grow from 10 million units in 2006 to 164 million units in 2010, only 40 percent of IP PBX (Private Branch eXchange) seats are configured with IP phones. Certainly price is one factor keeping businesses at bay. IP phones, after all, are often the highest cost component in migrating from a traditional phone system to VoIP. Promising to help companies get more bang for the buck, however, are a whole host of special features included in most IP phones.
