Is VoIP for you?

Have you considered the advantages of using VoIP for your business?

VoIP services offer functionality that many businesses overlook.

We just wanted to let you know about some of the main advantages of VoIP technology, and how they can help your business.

 

  • VoIP can allow you to dramatically reduce the cost of communications, especially for interstate or international communications, since everything can go through the Internet instead of having to go through expensive long distance toll charges.
  • You can make and receive calls from multiple devices for instance, on a dedicated phone, your PC via a software-based phone, or even a mobile phone with VoIP capabilities.
  • You can use VoIP as a tool for real-time collaboration along with video conferencing and screen sharing.
  • You can employ intelligence into how your calls are handled, such as: providing automatic call routing based on the number, time of day, etc; providing an interactive voice response when a call comes in, such as voice prompts that guide callers; call reporting; and more.

Wi-Fi Network installed in Hampshire School

Matrix IT Solutions recently undertook an installation of a Wi-Fi solution that was necessary at a local school in Portsmouth, Hampshire.

The school itself has students from Nursery, right through to Senior School age. This is a grand total of 450+ students plus staff. Therefore, a large infrastructure was needed to handle the traffic that the school would produce.

The product was deemed best for this was the Unifi Access Point. In total, 16 of these were installed around the premises over a two-day installation period (including trunking and neatening of cabling). With minimal cabling in mind, the access points were powered using a POE Switch, so only one cable was necessary to each adapter, rather than the 3 that would be used with a standard POE Injector.

With Zero Handoff (enabling users to move from one Access Point to another, without experiencing any connection interruptions), this is an ideal option for any ‘multi-user’ business.
