The Key Difference Between In-House and Hosted VoIP Solutions

b2ap3_thumbnail_voip_for_business_400.jpgCommunications solutions are vital to the functionality of your organization. Among several other necessities, your telephony solution stands head and shoulders above the rest as one of the most important. Are you still using a legacy phone system? If so, you should consider switching to a VoIP system.

A VoIP phone system, or Voice over Internet Protocol, uses your Internet connection instead of a landline connection, to transfer your voice to the recipient. Essentially, your voice is turned into data and transmitted along your Internet connection. This can sometimes remove the need to pay for expensive long distance phone bills that might be holding you back.

Before even considering VoIP, however, you need to consider whether your current infrastructure can handle the demands of this new type of communication. Your VoIP runs off of your internal data network, and sometimes even your Internet connection, so it’s important to consider whether or not your network design can sustain heavy use. If not, you might experience connectivity issues and poor call quality.

Still, if your organization is keen on improving operations, one of the best things you can do is switch to a VoIP solution. There are several different kinds of VoIP providers out there, all with different solutions. Despite this, one of the consistent choices you’ll have to make is whether or not you want hosted or in-house VoIP.

The Difference Between Hosted and In-House VoIP
Compared to an in-house VoIP solution, hosted VoIP offers plenty of benefits. Basically, a hosted VoIP solution allows your organization the ability to push the responsibility of monitoring and maintaining the VoIP server onto an outsourced IT company like United Systems. These companies generally allow you to host the server off-site and out of mind, or in the cloud. This means that the third party is responsible for ensuring the upkeep of the system, which lets you go about business as usual with one less expense to worry about.

Due to this shift in responsibility, it’s simple and easy to implement. However, you might run into complications if you’re more hands-on. Outsourcing any aspect of your IT infrastructure requires a certain level of trust, so if you want to reap the benefits of outsourcing your VoIP to an IT vendor, you need to make sure that you’re willing to relinquish this control.

What to Look For
One of the most vital properties to look for in a hosted VoIP provider is reliability. If the server where your VoIP is hosted goes down, you’ll be in a bind. This is why one of the most vital properties to look for in a hosted VoIP provider is reliability. You can’t hope to accomplish much without it. Furthermore, you should look for those who have a long legacy of excellency in the managed services department. What you need is someone like United Systems, with exceptional, proven expertise in the industry. With our technicians on your side, you’re sure to integrate only the best solutions out there.

United Systems’s VoIP solutions are flexible enough to be hosted both in-house or remotely. This makes it a versatile solution that’s sure to meet the standards and requirements of your organizaitonal structure.
