Voice over IP (commonly referred to as VOIP), uses the IP network protocol to carry your voice/phone services over your data network and/or the Internet. “Hosted” means the phone hardware (PBX/Switch/Voice-Mail) is at an off-site location (in the cloud) separate from your office where the VOIP phone services are used.
Ascendant Technologies, Inc. offers top rated hosted VOIP solutions specifically designed for small and medium businesses. These solutions give you all the conveniences of a modern PBX without the cost of purchasing on-premise hardware.
Some of the advantages of VOIP include:
|Fixed, Predictable Monthly Costs||Highly Dependent on your Internet Connection|
