What are the Requirements for a VoIP Phone System?
May 9, 2019

What does your business need to upgrade to a VoIP phone system?

A VoIP telephone system is a modern, cost effective alternative to the traditional PBX telephone system.

As a UK VoIP provider, we often get asked about the kind of things that a business needs in order to upgrade to VoIP.

What is needed for a VoIP phone system?

The answer, in short is: a 'decent' fibre broadband connection.

VoIP uses your broadband connection to make and receive calls, therefore, a reliable, stable internet connection is the main requirement for a VoIP phone system.

Typically, a fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) connection of at least 32Mbps is needed to ensure that your VoIP calls are high quality and that you do not suffer from dropouts.

Other requirements for a VoIP phone system are:

  • VoIP compatible handsets (we can supply these with your new Commsplus VoIP system)
  • Good bandwidth
  • SIP Trunks (we'll also supply these when you upgrade to a VoIP phone system)

What if I don't have these things?

If your business has a poor internet connection, give us a call.

As a registered internet service provider, we may be able to help you upgrade to faster, more reliable broadband, this includes upgrading your business to a fibre broadband connection, where available.

Unfortunately, rural businesses far away from 'green street cabinets' may not have a stable or fast enough broadband connection to support a VoIP telephone system. However, you could upgrade to a leased line.

A leased line is a dedicated fibre to the premises connection, giving your business superfast, unimpeded speeds. Businesses can now take advantage of our new voucher scheme, offering up to £2,500 off your new leased line installation.

If you're looking to upgrade to VoIP, there has never been a better time. Commsplus are offering VoIP telephony from just £10pm.
