Replacing a traditional phone line with VoIP can save you between 20 to 50% on your monthly phone bill. VoIP — voice over internet protocol — is a method in which calls can be made directly from a computer, VoIP phone, or other data using devices on your network. VoIP systems have many benefits for businesses which include lowering the cost of communications and promoting flexibility, even to remote employees. VoIP can be made even better through the use of fiber structured cabling, which has unique benefits of its own.
1. Higher Communication Speed
Fiber structured cabling for data and voice use can help improve the speed of data transmission and reduce noise. This means you can interact with clients faster as well as with other employees. Similarly, you won’t have to worry about the call breaking up or dropping, and instead can focus on taking care of business. Fiber cabling like this can help boost your professionalism and allow you to stay connected easier even with clients on the other side of the country or the world.
2. Easy Management
Consolidating both your voice and data into one system can also make it easier to manage. This also means that you won’t have multiple cables running throughout your office. And, if something goes wrong within your system, you will also have an easier time getting it fixed because everything will be consolidated using fiber structured cabling.
3. A Cleaner Office Space
Speaking of fewer wires, this also means you will have a cleaner and more streamlined office. Offices that feature lots of clutter, such as tangles of wires, can not only impact employee moods, but it can impact productivity and functionality. However, by using a single fiber structured cabling system you can remove the clutter and help boost productivity throughout the office. Additionally, because of the simplified nature of fiber cabling, if you do need to modify or move your system the task will be much easier. This helps keep the office flexible while also making it less of a challenge to expand.
4. Less Maintenance
Fiber structured cabling also requires much less maintenance to keep it up. As opposed to other wires, which can break down due to wear and tear, fiber structured cabling is built to last and minimize the need for maintenance. Similarly, when they do need to be replaced, it’s easier to identify a problem and repair it. This helps prevent unnecessary downtime which can cost you both time and money.
If your company is struggling with an old phone system that is costing you more money than you’d like, consider switching to a VoIP system supported by fiber structured cabling. Not only could help simplify communications throughout your business, but it can help save you time, money, and a lot of frustration when it comes to keeping in touch with your staff and your clients.
