3 Steps to Transferring to a VoIP Phone System, New York, New York

Business owners love VoIP phone systems for their versatility, mobility, and features. If you’re upgrading your office, your provider will let you know what you need to do to streamline the process. Below is an overview of what typically goes into successfully setting up these cloud-based phone systems.

How to Move From Landlines to a VoIP System

1. Review Your Internet Service

A VoIP system requires a stable, high-speed internet connection. The bandwidth you need depends on how many lines you use. For example, 500 kilobits per second (kbps) of upload and download speeds are needed for five simultaneous calls, so you would need an internet service that provides at least 5 Megabytes per second (Mbps) to support other applications without interference. 

Consider how many lines you need now and work with your VoIP provider to determine if you need to upgrade your package.

2. Get the Right Hardware

You may need to source computers with cameras for each employee, specialized phones for each desk, or monitors and cameras for dedicated conference rooms. If your router is over 15 years old, you may also need to update it to extend your internet signal.

An IT consultant will help you decide what hardware to purchase so you get the most out of your new system.

3. Configure the Program

Once all devices are installed, simply plug the VoIP phones into your computers’ Ethernet systems or connect via Wi-Fi. These devices include self-install prompts you can use to get started. Your provider may also offer professional installation.

Don’t forget download mobile apps to your phone so you can take advantage of remote services.
