VoIP Without Wires

Face it.....management and use of basic business phone systems can be a royal pain in the you know what.....hassles and expense. You're not at your desk all day but your phone is....so callers get voice mail, everyone plays phone tag, and critical conversations get delayed. Callers try your cell phone...but if reception in your building is spotty...you miss the call. Top it off with your phone and cellular bills would gag King Kong.

So why can't your office phone go where you go....throughout your building or around your compound? In fact, it can. The convergence of two rising technologies within the enterprise makes the office phone portable: VoIP telephony and 802.11 wireless LANs.

These 2 technologies can work together to carry voice traffic over a wireless LAN so that mobile staff, such as maintenance workers, executives, doctors/nurses, wharehouse staff, and HR reps (to name just a few), can make all their calls anywhere within the facility while avoiding pricey cell phone service.

Now before you get all excited and do something foolish....you need to get the whole story. Yes, there's big potential benefits in connectivity, mobility, and cost.... for some. But you'll need to do your homework. Maybe....it isn't right for you. Yet.
