SD-WAN is good for single-site companies, too

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on May 9, 2018 3:48:00 PM

...Especially if they have lousy internet service

Because of its name, most people think of SD-WAN as being relevant only for companies with multiple sites. But SD-WAN can do wonders for many types of companies – even a single-site business located in a remote area with an unreliable internet connection. If you work with a company that fits this description, SD-WAN can resolve a lot of their VoIP issues.

Improve your crisis preparedness with Epygi’s Security Solution

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Apr 11, 2018 3:44:00 PM

As unwanted and unexpected as they are, crises do happen, and being unprepared only makes them worse. In a 2017 PwC survey, 65 percent of respondents reported experiencing at least one crisis in the past four years. Despite their prevalence, a 2013 study by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer found that more than 40% of respondents had no type of plan in place for dealing with a crisis.

Regardless of your customer’s current state of readiness, you can help them improve their security measures and crisis response even more with applications that run on their data network. And, if they have an on-premise IP PBX, they already have an arsenal of tools available in their existing system.

Grandstream’s DP760 Long-range DECT repeater

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Mar 7, 2018 3:48:00 PM

Product review

In many workspaces, internal mobility is vital.  This is especially true of businesses that have extensive facilities such as warehouses, factories, hotels, schools, or even university campuses where employees are required to physically move from place to place to get their jobs done. In these kinds of enterprises,  professionals must be reachable no matter where they are on campus.

Grandstream’s DP750 DECT VoIP base station enables this type of mobile connectivity by combining two reliable technologies: DECT and VoIP. This base station delivers wireless coverage of up to 300 meters outdoors and 50 meters indoors for up to five DP720 DECT handsets, allowing five concurrent calls while supporting up to ten SIP accounts.

For organizations that need to cover an even greater surface area, Grandstream has launched the DP760 long-range wideband DECT repeater for extending the coverage area of the DP750 base station.

How SIP enables workforce mobility

Posted by TeleDynamics on Feb 14, 2018 4:02:00 PM

A decade ago, it would have been rare to meet someone who could carry out their profession from anywhere. For most, “going to work” involved physically going to a place of business. Today, because of the swift development of collaboration tools and the ubiquitousness of connectivity to the internet, working from anywhere is not only an option, but is often preferred by both employer and employee. Studies have shown that a mobile workforce tends to be more productive and experience higher job satisfaction.

Voice over IP (VoIP) technology is one of the major facilitators of employee mobility. Here we highlight some of the functionalities and tools that allow for a seamlessly mobile workforce.

WAN connections and the SIP trunk: What’s the connection?

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jan 17, 2018 3:54:00 PM

How you connect to the internet will impact your VoIP phone system

Because SIP trunks leverage the WAN technology used to connect to the internet, it is imperative to understand how the choice of WAN technology will impact the functionality of the SIP trunk. There are different ways to connect to the internet, and each has implications for voice traffic.

In this article, we discuss the main considerations to take into account when choosing between MPLS, metro Ethernet, LTE and SD-WAN.

Migrate your legacy customers to VoIP this year

Posted by Daniel Noworatzky on Jan 10, 2018 3:48:00 PM

If you have customers that have not yet migrated to VoIP and are thinking about making the switch, this would be a great time to do it. According to the FCC, VoIP telephone subscriptions in the U.S. have been growing at a compound annual growth rate of 10% since 2013, and retail switch access has been declining by 11% annually during the same period. At that rate, VoIP subscribers now outnumber switched access customers, and ISDN connections are quickly sliding into obsolescence. SIP trunking is becoming the standard for PSTN connectivity.

To ensure a smooth transition, start by helping your customers answer these four basic questions to set them up for success.

On-premise VoIP is now affordable for micro- and SMBs thanks to Epygi

Posted by TeleDynamics on Nov 8, 2017 3:42:00 PM

Almost 90% of businesses in the United States have fewer than 20 employees, according to the United States Census Bureau. To get VoIP service, companies of this size typically use a hosted VoIP service rather than having an on-premise IP PBX. With Epygi Technologies, however, the on-premise solution becomes cost-effective, even for a micro-business with a single employee. How does Epygi do it? We had a chance to ask Mario Cuello, CEO of Epygi Technologies, about what makes them unique in their ability to deliver robust, feature-rich systems at such accessible prices.
