UpLync Communications

Cloud-Based VoIP Phone Systems for Business

How Our Hosted VoIP Internet Phone Systems Work

To use an internet phone system from UpLync Communications, you simply need a broadband connection and a phone that supports Voice over IP (VoIP). VoIP phone systems are an affordable, web-based method of hosting your internet phone service and saving your business money. (For the geeky, tech-speak definition, check it out on Wikipedia.)

Basically, instead of traditional analog phone lines, VoIP systems use your Internet connection to make quick, seamless calls to anywhere you want. With a hosted business phone system from UpLync, your customers never hear a busy signal, and your employees can always make outbound calls.

internet based phones are affordable and easy to use in lafayette indiana You don’t need extra office space for a bunch of equipment when you have a hosted VoIP phone system. Your system is on a server in the cloud. The data center where your business phone system “lives” is secure, backed up frequently and includes redundant copies. So, your phone system is always available, even if you lose power at your office. You can remain open for business, even if your location is closed. 

Traditional Analog and Premises-based VoIP Phone Systems

You have three options when considering a new business phone system—traditional, premises-based VoIP or hosted VoIP

Traditional Analog Phone Systems

Traditional phone systems require a gigantic up-front capital investment in equipment, followed by monthly fees for phone lines (i.e., dial tone) from a phone company. These old-school systems reside in a closet somewhere in your office and include a bunch of wires coming out of a box. They’re labor-intensive to build and costly to service when they break (and they do break!).

Premises-based VoIP Phone Systems

In addition to traditional phone systems, you will find companies who sell premises-based VoIP options, sometimes called a VoIP PBX. Purchasing a premises-based VoIP PBX is similar to a traditional system, except it uses the internet instead of analog lines to transfer call traffic. Like old-school systems, these require a large initial capital investment that many businesses cannot afford to upgrade/replace for at least 10 years. It also locks your organization into a technology that cannot evolve as time goes by. 

Hosted VoIP Phone Systems

Hosted VoIP systems use your internet connection rather than traditional analog phone lines. Compared to traditional business phone systems, they are less costly and offer more advanced features, such as recording a virtual receptionist to manage calls and integrating mobile applications for on-the-go employees. Hosted VoIP systems are easy to scale and change as your business grows because they operate using software that's easily manipulated.
