To the left is a diagram of a typical system we would install in a small office or retail environment with two separate locations. In this diagram, both a PSTN, Remote network and portable network are involved (web client). VoIP systems are versatile enough that almost any environment that can access the internet can support VoIP as long as the internet connection quality is high enough.
Please remember, this diagram does not express the limitations of a VoIP System. With the massive amounts of options, do not limit yourself creatively regarding what your phone system can actually provide. From Voice to Video and text messaging, do not hesitate to contact us today to start building your very own custom designed communications system.
The Free PBX systems such as Asterisk and Freeswitch are leading the way as far as cutting edge features in the open source world, but more stable commercialized platforms such as 3CX and PBXact are providing business with what it needs today as far as a balance of reliability to functionality.
We always recommend selecting a paid and commercially supported solution to any client wanting to deploy a production system that will rely on it for business. Both 3CX and FreePBX (Sangoma) offer solutions that will help grow with your business such as free licensing for low call volume businesses and low cost commercial modules that add functionality as you need it.
