VoIP Solutions Week in Review: Htek, Georgetown University & More
Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in the VoIP space this week.
The week started off with the news that Htek has concluded its recent VoIP interoperability testing with 3CX. As a result of the interoperability testing, all Htek IP phones will now work with the 3CX Phone System v15, making compatibility issues virtually impossible when using Htek systems. Htek and 3CX have a long history of working together, and the future looks bright for more good things to come from the companies. Find out more HERE.
Speaking of IP phones, Georgetown University just came to the realization that communications would be a lot easier if it invested in some VoIP technology. The move to replace its legacy phone system is meant to help the university take better advantage of cloud-based systems and mobile software. Trying to convert the entire campus at once is risky, but the route Georgetown is taking seems to have set it up for success. TMC’s Steve Anderson has full coverage of the story HERE.
Presumably, one of the issues Georgetown University ran into after deciding to switch to VoIP was figuring out which IP phone system was best for its needs. This is a common problem—there are so many IP phones available, with each claiming to be better than the last. How are companies supposed to know which option is best for them? Small companies have much different needs than large enterprises, meaning that they have a need for a much different IP phone. We’ve compiled a list of characteristics to keep in mind when searching for the right system HERE.
Now that you have a handy dandy “how to” guide about picking IP phones, you might want to seriously consider making the switch. According to recent reports from Future Market Insights, the future looks bright for the VoIP market as a whole. In fact, some revenues are set to double in the coming years. All the statistics you need to know are HERE.
That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the VoIP space.
