Add flexibility to your communication platform with a reliable and feature-packed cloud-based phone system by Voxco!
A cloud-based phone system is a telephony service that lets you make calls through the internet. Being a communication solution that is seamlessly hosted as well as maintained over cloud data servers, it is also known as cloud calling or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone system. The data of a cloud-based phone system is stored in multiple offsite secure data centers and not in-house servers. Leveraging a hosted PBX capability, this phone system comes equipped with similar routing and call management features (of a traditional PBX) with the added advantage of Voice over IP (VoIP) for facilitating calls over the internet. The entire data is stored as well as accessed through the cloud, which plays a key role in saving time and money. Any devices like traditional phones with adaptors, computer calling software, smartphone applications, or VoIP-enabled phones can be used to employ a cloud-based phone system.
Using a cloud-based phone system helps to overcome the limitations of a traditional (on-premise) PBX phone system. In earlier times, telephone network companies used to rely on Private branch exchange (PBX) for routing calls to departments and phone extensions. The system of the PBX was housed on office premises only. The system machines of a traditional phone system are heavy and unwieldy due to which they need a separate storage room. Moreover, there’s always a need for periodic repairs as well as maintenance in traditional phone systems. So, it works well with only those companies that have enormous resources for installing and managing this level of setup for their official phones.
A cloud-based phone system works by breaking a call into small packets of digital audio that are shared with the recipient on the other end through the internet. For instance, in the case of calling a regular phone number, the signal will be converted to a regular telephone signal before reaching out to the recipient. The routing is performed with the help of a cloud-based PBX.
A cloud-based phone system can be easily used by anyone having a good internet connection through a variety of methods. A cloud-based call can be made via:
A cloud-based phone system is a telephony service that helps you make calls through the internet instead of a traditional analog phone that relies on copper wires or optical fibers for establishing a connection.
A cloud-based phone system is a fully integrated communications system known for its ease of use. There are many benefits of using a cloud-based system such as cost-efficiency, flexibility, reliability, and many more.
A cloud-based phone system helps you to make calls over the internet and uses the cloud for storing your data. While it is a cost-efficient and reliable solution, it needs a strong internet connection to work. If your business requires a phone system with minimum dependency and at low costs, you should use a cloud-based phone system.
Skype makes use of a proprietary Internet telephony network (VoIP) known as the Skype protocol.
For porting a landline number to a VoIP system, get in touch with your phone service provider and request him for the transfer. Your phone number needs to be connected and should be “in-service” before you port it.
