Velocity Explains What is VoIP Scalability

Velocity VoIP explains small and medium size business voip scalability growth for features services and solutions
When talking about VoIP, scalability is something often mentioned. Small and medium sized businesses want a communications system that can grow along with them, while not wasting funds on products or features they don’t need or use. But just what is scalability when it comes to VoIP phone systems and services? Allow Velocity VoIP to explain:

The beauty of VoIP scalability is that a business will not need to buy new equipment to grow, or regret having spent too much on gear should business conditions dictate a contraction. If resources become squeezed, you can quickly scale back. On the other hand, if you open a new branch office or need to provide remote communications, or just need to prepare for a spike in demand around the holidays, it’s quick and easy to scale up without any disruption to your business.

With small businesses using Velocity VoIP, upgrades are remarkably simple. Typical upgrades only require simple software updates and more bandwith. Because VoIP phone systems are scalable, businesses don’t have to buy new expensive hardware or purchase new dedicated phone lines. And if a business has to purchase a new phone, IP phones are cheap and loaded with features.

No one can predict the future, but businesses do their best to project their path to success. This is why companies need a highly-flexible technology like Velocity’s cloud-based hosted VoIP solutions. Our telecommunications services give you the peace of mind that comes from not being constrained by a phone system that only supports a fixed number of employees and can be costly and complicated to expand.

Here are some of the questions Velocity VoIP encourages small businesses to ask regarding VoIP scalability:

1. Does the VoIP equipment integrate with your existing PBX equipment and work with end users’ existing analog or digital phones so you will be able to keep using that equipment?
2. Can you easily expand the number of VoIP lines without downtime to the phone system?
3. Does the VoIP system include encryption or other security mechanisms, either included with the initial setup or available as an add-on that you can implement later?

VoIP is thought by many to be the future of telephony, and putting a little thought into what needs your company may scale to in the future will help you choose the best VoIP solution today.
