Q1. How scalable is a business VoIP system?

Answer: Because most of business VoIP is priced per phone line, the economics of a business VoIP system diminishes once you exceed say 120 lines. While the economics are a hindrance, we know of companies having scaled their business VoIP to over 350 lines. The guidance given to us by many of the business VoIP manufacturers is that the business VoIP systems are scalable beyond 1000 lines provided your internet bandwidth is able to handle the traffic.

Q2. How reliable is Business VoIP?

Answer: Business VoIP runs on your business's internet connection. Too many a times, the broadband bandwidth and reliability determines the quality of your business VoIP phone system. It is critical to either allocate a certain bandwidth of your internet connection to your phone system. It is best to talk to the business VoIP system provider on what is necessary to get a smooth service. Also ask for references to other customers in your area using their service.
