New and exciting strides have been made in business telephone technology. Voice communication over the internet has been around for years, but not like this. The latest solution is cheaper, more reliable, centralized and has superior call quality than any previous comparable solution. While this service is far from an ABS Internet exclusive, we feel our custom combination of services and pricing is vastly superior than what you could find anywhere else.
Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phones can work over any internet connection in the world. You will be awarded with the same phone number and extension. You will also enjoy the same low-cost calling rates. There is even a software solution that mimics the phone’s functions. Merely plug in a usb head set, and you are up and running. During travel there is no need to lug the phone with you at all.
As long as your internet service provider meets our quality standards, VoIP service can be brought over your existing internet connection. We host and house the server side of the phone system at a secure location. The burden and overhead of a local VoIP solution is lifted, as we manage all the data traffic ourselves. Plus, there is no need to purchase equipment, other than the phones themselves. These - coupled with calling rates lower than any traditional phone service – can save up to 50%.
Call quality is superior to nearly any analog phone system. The voice data is transmitted digitally across the internet with no quality deterioration. This holds true no matter the distance the from the central office.
Phones can be pre-configured and shipped anywhere in the world. A virtual office can be created from home, office, and international users. Existing phone numbers can be used, or new numbers are available. A local number here can be used anywhere in the world. Extensions can be grouped and configured to your liking. A software assistant is even available as an easy way to make and transfer calls.
We are truly excited about the possibilities and flexibility of this technology. Business-grade Voice-Over IP (VOIP) is one of the best new services we offer here at ABS Internet. Whether it be with one of our demo phones or a full installation, every customer so far has loved it. Even our home users enjoy the cost and functionality.
