Colocation for hosted VoIP
Benefits of hosted VoIP
Companies can choose to have a telephone exchange in their business premises but can also opt for hosted VoIP. If the telephone exchange is in a data center, we speak of hosted VoIP.
The start-up costs of hosted VoIP are significantly lower compared to a local VoIP exchange. After all, there is no need to have a VoIP exchange in the business premises because you rent an exchange from the provider. In addition, hosted VoIP exchange is monitored by the provider. The provider is responsible for the maintenance and management of the hosted VoIP environment.
Why choose for colocation of VoIP services in a data center?
The facilities within a data center are designed to exclude as many risks as possible. Data centers provide, among other things, a stable and conditioned environment where you can safely place your business-critical hardware thanks to various protection measures such as climate control, constant power supply and fire protection measures. Within Smartdc, all these facilities are redundant. These types of measures can often not be optimally implemented within a regular business premises, which means that business data can be lost in the event of a disaster. With colocation for VoIP, a reliable data center offers a solution.
Hosted VoIP requires a solution that combines high performance, low latency and optimum uptime. When on the phone, the end customer does not want to experience any delay or echo during the phone call. In addition to a requirement for low latency, the prevention of downtime is also an important pillar for VoIP. VoIP providers need a reliable and fast infrastructure with optimum availability. Colocation for VoIP services is an ideal solution for hosted VoIP providers.
