Cisco VOIP Products
I don’t have a home phone. We don’t use them, we are a totally cellular family. However we do have high speed wireless internet. If we were ever to get a home phone we would definitely go with a VOIP solution. The days of the normal phone are over sorry Mr. Rotary dial. VOIP is really the only solution that makes sense in today’s world. The technology is still maturing but it is close enough that I would recommend it against new legacy PBX systems
One of the leaders in this field is Cisco Systems. They have done a great job creating voice products that work. You can take a look at some of Cisco’s voip offerings
My A is actually a network engineer and works with this stuff all day. He is always telling me that Cisco has the best VOIP products out there. Think of it this way, PBX technology has been pretty static for the last 10-15 years while networks have changed dramatically over the last 5. Do you want to buy voice over IP products from a PBX vendor who is learning networking or from someone who knows networks and has the advantage of building their VOIP product from the ground up?
Cisco holds something like 70% of the VOIP today market. There is a reason for that, their stuff just works and is easy to manage. Cisco can provide you with a completely integrated network solution along with VOIP. If you are thinking about VOIP I urge you to take a long look at Cisco. It might be more expensive today but in the long run it will save you a ton of money in support costs.
I am not saying you need to buy Cisco but you owe it to yourself to take a look. Call your Cisco Rep they will be pretty aggressive if you put a decent opportunity in front of them. If you give Cisco a chance they will do what it takes to win your trust.
