Hosted Telephony (VoIP)Hosted Telephony
Hosted Telephony is now the fastest growing way for businesses to communicate with their customers, suppliers and each other.
Hosted Telephony makes use of your broadband connection to place highly stable, high quality calls from your phone to the recipient. The recipient of the call does not need to have a VOIP phone.
Unlike Skype which is a direct peer-to-peer (PC to PC) VOIP call, Hosted Telephony routes the call through a cloud based compressing switch which increases quality by compacting the bandwidth required. This gives an instant, better than standard analogue or ISDN, call quality as the call is still delivered over your standard copper phone cable.
Hosted Telephony means that you can have all the advantages of a large enterprise business without the costs involved in setting up a phone system. This is because all the expensive equipment required is hosted by Saffwood Communications. Hosted Telephony can be used for one line or hundreds of lines.
There are a huge volume of benefits to using Hosted Telephony including:
- Low Cost Rates
- No Connection Charges
- Free Call Features (free call divert, caller ID, etc)
- Free Calls Between Lines
If you have an existing telephone number, this can be ported to a VOIP network and used as normal so there is no need to change. For new lines you can request a local, national or 08 number no matter where you are in the UK.
By moving to a Hosted Telephony service, you will increase the professional image of your business, lower your costs and be provided with a flexible, scalable solution.
