With Yeastar’s new P-Series PBX System, SMEs can experience value and possibilities that go beyond a traditional telephony system. In this article we take a deeper look at this offering from Yeastar, which was featured in the company’s 2021 kickoff virtual event on 28 January 2021.
Now that working from home and dispersed workforces have become the new norm, connecting employees’ or company-issued smartphones to the enterprise IP PBX offers several advantages, including the ability to reach employees via their direct inward dial (DID) landline numbers, even though they are physically off-premise.
The technology that enables this is called VoIP over cellular data networks. In this article we detail how to enable it, the advantages of doing so and some potential issues to watch out for.
When researching options for upgrading your telephony network or installing one from scratch, you may have come across FreeSWITCH. This is a freely available open-source application server for real-time voice communications of various types, including voice over IP (VoIP). In this article we examine FreeSWITCH to help you determine if it is right for you, and how it compares with Asterisk.
If you have been involved with telephony within the last decade, you will have heard of Asterisk as an open-source alternative to proprietary traditional and IP PBXs. If you’re considering Asterisk as a solution for your business, this article may be useful, as it will clarify what Asterisk is, how it can be implemented, and what kind of support you will need to ensure its viability as a solution.
While working remotely has been on the rise for more than a decade, the trend accelerated geometrically amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, telecom vendors and service providers are scrambling to satisfy the increased demand for remote collaboration services.
Luckily, technology is also moving fast to keep up. In this article, we review a new connector available in Microsoft AppSource that allows all Yeastar IP PBXs to fully integrate with Microsoft Teams, the software giant’s unified collaboration platform. This allows communications between dispersed team members to be even more seamless and efficient.
If you are a voice network engineer, then it has probably happened to you. Your SIP server is all set up and you have plugged in your IP phone. Its lights come on, its screen is activated, you see the loading icon rotating, and then… nothing. For some reason, the phone will not register.
IP phone registration issues are, unfortunately, not uncommon. In this article, we examine the most common causes of registration failures, and best practices for troubleshooting and resolving them.
If you’re looking to grow your business, consider serving micro-enterprises with 1-20 employees. According to the Census Bureau’s Annual Survey of Entrepreneurs, firms with between 1-20 employees made up 89% of all U.S. firms in 2016. While this has traditionally been an underserved market when it comes to VoIP telecommunications, more and more equipment manufacturers are offering products tailored to their needs. In this article, we review some cutting-edge devices that are ideal for micro-enterprises.

Enterprises with multiple sites have a variety of options when it comes to their IP telephony infrastructure. Which setup will best meet their needs depends on the answers to questions such as:
- Where should the call processing take place?
- Where should calls to the PSTN exit the network?
- Where should incoming calls connect to the corporate network?
These decisions depend on the nature of the underlying network infrastructure that will carry the IP telephony services, as well as other considerations such as the location of the remote sites, the dial plan, and cost.
In this article, we discuss the centralized call processing model and how to avoid common complications with its deployment.
