Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has come a long way since its beginnings. If it’s been some time since you last tried VoIP, you’ll be glad to know sound quality has improved dramatically since its early days. There are also a few things you can do when undergoing VoIP implementation in order to ensure you get the clearest sound possible. Here are just a few of them.
Choose the right bandwidth-Generally speaking, the higher your bandwidth is, the better your sound quality will be as well. If it’s been some time since you last upgraded, now might be the time to do so, since you’ll also enjoy a faster Internet speed.
Buy the right equipment-There’s quite a bit of difference between different types of equipment, so you should research different ones to find out the pros and cons of them. You should also consider your existing office equipment, especially your phones. Analog equipment cannot easily process the digital data produced by a VoIP network, which means sound quality issues may result. As such, you could need to replace your phone whenever you implement a VoIP system.
Avoid interference-The frequency your phone operates on could cause interference with other equipment. Switching to a lower frequency normally resolves the problem. When two pieces of equipment are located too close to one another, you may also experience interference. Moving one of your phones will usually help improve sound quality tremendously.
These are just a few of the ways you can ensure you get the best sound quality possible when switching to VoIP. To find the right phone system for your home or business, contact us.
