Unfortunately, this technology has had an inconclusive beginning, leaving a bitter taste for the first users. Like any new technology, VoIP has experienced a period of adaptation that has created some frustrations in its use. Fortunately, things have changed for the best and VoIP has become a reliable and essential solution for modern businesses.
The evolution of VoIP telephony
In order to understand this improvement, it is important to know that there are two types of VoIP telephony: internal telephony and hosted telephony. The first version is established directly in your company on a computer. No need to say that when it comes to computer, network failure, system update and maintenance are to be expected. This means that a problem on this computer can lead to miscommunications. Fortunately, for some years now, hosted technology has appeared on the market. With this system, your telephony is managed in a central outside your company and never shuts down. All servers have a failsafe system and 24/7 automated monitoring. In the event of a network failure in the office, your phone menu will continue to work and your calls will be redirected to your mobile devices.
