Business Phones and VoIP Systems:

  1. IP Phones:
    • Dedicated hardware devices designed for VoIP communication.
    • Connected to the internet or a local network, eliminating the need for traditional phone lines.
  2. Softphones:
    • Software applications that allow users to make calls using a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
    • Useful for remote work and on-the-go communication.
  3. VoIP Service Providers:

    • Integration of various communication tools within the organization, including VoIP, messaging, video conferencing, and collaboration platforms.

  7. Security Considerations:
    • VoIP systems are vulnerable to cyber threats.
    • Implement security measures such as encryption, secure access controls, and regular updates.
  8. Scalability:
    • Ensure that the VoIP system can easily scale as the business grows.
    • Consider the capacity to add new users and features.
  9. Quality of Service (QoS):
    • Prioritize voice traffic to ensure high call quality.
