Quite simply, it’s a revolutionary way of setting up a phone system for your business. It has significantly lower cost than a traditional physical telephone switch, with no loss of functionality.
Our telephony platform is based on the popular Asterisk software.
With Asterisk in your network, you can ‘do’ telephony in all kinds of new ways, such as:
Our Asterisk servers are housed in a purpose-built data centre, with connectivity provided by a small, business-only internet service provider. The servers are on a tight 1 hour service agreement, with 24/7 technical support. For telephony, you and your business can’t take any chances. That’s why our servers are connected to the core of the ISP’s network.
Hosted telephony services cost from £15 per month. This includes the system rental, and a single configured SIP trunk. There are additional charges depending on your exact requirements.
The vast majority of landline numbers can be ported into our system for as little as £25. That means you can keep the same number, while migrating to a state-of-the-art telephony solution.
You will need a suitable VoIP handset to make calls. These cost from around £50. We recommend the Polycom SoundPoint range of handsets, with the VVX 401 for regular staff members, and VVX 450 for managerial or executive staff. Click here for more information on the Polycom range of IP handsets.

You will also need a suitable internet connection for VoIP calls. Your existing connection can be used, but call quality can suffer if you are downloading while making calls. That’s why we recommend a separate internet line for VoIP use. If you do wish to use a single internet line, we recommend fitting a suitable QoS router that can dedicate a small proportion to your VoIP system, reducing the risk of poor call quality.
