Phone System Features
Detailed features available here (Asterisk)
The use of modern technology such as H.323 makes it very easy for us to integrate video and other forms of multimedia and data transport into your phone system. These technologies are standards set by the ITU’s Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) that strictly defines how a voice/video call is handled. H.323 video calls are secure, reliable and use little bandwidth making them reliable and safe especially when discussing confidential information.
Most VoIP platforms include some sort of H.323 gatekeeper system that controls call flow and routing to partner locations, typically placing a H.323 video call is as easy as dialing a phone number in a properly configured system. Since H.323 is a standard and used by large and small medical facilities worldwide, it is more than likely other medical offices utilizing video conferencing technology will be compatible with you.
