Cloud Telephony – time to ditch the traditional landlines?

Chris HunterGeneral Interest, News

Once upon a time, a telephone line was something that was tied to a particular property, at a location and to a specific telephone exchange.
If you needed more than one user you would most likely need either multiple lines or  ISDN and an expensive telephone system installed on your premises.

Openreach have stated that by December 2025, the traditional analogue phone network (the Public Switched Telephone Network, or PSTN) and ISDN networks will reach the end of its life and newer digital technologies will take there place.  As a result around 16 million lines and channels will need to be upgraded to alternative products over the next six years.

Cloud or hosted telephony is natural replacement for fixed line telephony. The digital telephony world has changed, which means businesses of any size can take advantage of all sorts of features like auto attendant, time based routing, out of area numbering and mobile apps, to get all the features of a traditional phone system and more.

At HM Network we have a variety of offerings available, one of which is the  The Cloud Voice platform. As it’s cloud-based, your people can use all of the office features from wherever they can get on the internet, whether they’re in the office or not. Maintenance and upgrades are automatic, without the need for any costly and disruptive on-site visits.

For the company looking for all the features of a full blown on-premises system, but without the costs, maintenance, and location headaches of hosting it yourself, BT Cloud Voice could be just the ticket.

We can often provide the actual phones for FREE and have some great call plans available.

Used in conjunction with a leased line or Fibre broadband and 4G Assure, you have feature rich flexible phone system that can grow with you, as well as rock sold internet connectivity.
