Technology Makes Off Site Working Easier

Did you read the Bergen Record on October 10, 2010? There is a great article, Technology making off-site working easier” by Carol Lawrence. The article highlights that technology is offering mobility features to small businesses by allowing it them to keep “valuable employees, widen sales territories, lessen employees’ commuting stress and even hire overseas.” The article also states that “nationally, the number of telecommuters grew to 17.2 million on 2008 from 12.4 million in 2006. 

Today’s workplace is no longer defined by the building with your company logo on it. Home-based employees and road warriors are becoming commonplace these days, and your communications system has to operate where your employees are most comfortable, everywhere.

Mitel and Samsung IP telephone systems allow you to easily accommodate home, or road based employees by seamlessly connecting incoming calls to your remote location. Off site IP phones allow your transient workers to handle, hold, conference, transfer or page just as if they were in the office.

A Samsung or Mitel system can offer you the following remote worker features:

  1.  Get your voice mail messages sent to your email in your cell phone or PC at home.
  2. Give out 1 number or extension to your clients that will simultaneously ring at your desk, cell and home phone. 
  3. Use an IP phone at home, your cell phone or a softphone in your computer and be directly connected to the office; eliminate toll calls to the office. 
  4. Make your cell or home phone a virtual extension of the phone system at the office. The phone functions as if you were in the office. Seamlessly transfer calls back and forth, put a call on hold at the office or on your remote phone, page over head at the office and check your voice mail.
  5. With SIP trunks, you can have a local presence for your remote workers, anywhere in the state or country by using their local telephone number that rings into your office.

Comtex can provide you with the technology to offer teleworking at your business.

Useful Information about VOIP Gateways

You must have heard about VoIP and VoIP gateways. But do you know what these technologies actually are all about?

To understand what a VoIP gateway is, you first need to understand what VoIP technology is all about. VoIP is the term used for Voice over Internet Protocol . It refers to the technology which facilitates transmission of voice traffic over internet networks. Internet protocol was originally developed for sharing data. After its immense success, the technology was adapted for sharing voice networking.

More and more business organizations have started to use VoIP instead of the traditional PSTN for communicating because it is cheaper and more useful than the other mediums of voice communications. Some of the benefits of using VoIP technology and VoIP phones include:

VoIP facilitates to transmit more than one phone call on a single broadband phone line. Therefore, more telephone lines can be installed by the business at a lower cost.

Like business phone systems, VoIP phones too, have many advanced features such as call forwarding, caller ID, call waiting etc. For these features, the businesses do not have to pay any extra charges.

VoIP offers unified and secured communications, which can be integrated with other internet based services such as video conferencing, web conferencing etc for enhancing the business communication.

Now let us discuss what is a VoIP gateway. Gateways are devices which convert telephony traffic into internet protocol so that data can be transferred over a network. These are generally used in the following two ways:

1- For converting PSTN to VoIP.  A VoIP gateway facilitates receiving and placing VoIP calls on a regular telephone network. With the VoIP technology, businesses can make larger volumes of calls at much lower prices.

2- To connect traditional PBX and other business phone systems to an IP network. A VoIP gateway allows making a call using VoIP technology instead of a regular telephone line. Business can either buy these services from a reputed and reliable VoIP service provider or can route the calls through the internet to reduce the call charges.

VoIP gateways are available in the form of external units and PCI cards. However, most of the business organizations prefer using the external units as their VoIP devices. Every VoIP gateway has a connector for getting connected to the IP network and one or more number of ports for connecting the phones lines to it.
