VoIP is a great alternative to the traditional phone system. It offers more features, better call quality and lower costs. However, VoIP requires a well-optimised network to work properly. If you don’t have a reliable network, your VoIP system may not be able to handle all of your calls.
If you want to use VoIP, it’s important to make sure your home network is optimised for the new technology. If you don’t do this, there’s a good chance your call quality will suffer and people might struggle to hear you during conversations. Here are some steps you can take to make sure your network is optimised for VoIP:
Decide on the type of call that you would like to use
There are two types of calls that can be made using VoIP; one is a single line call and the other is a multi-line call. Depending on the type of call you want to make, you should decide which equipment would suit best for your company. For example, if you want to make single line calls then there is no need for multiple lines because only one person will be making calls at any given time. However if you want multi-line calls then it will require more than one line so that each person can make their own call without any interruptions or delays
Make sure your router is compatible with VoIP
Some routers simply aren’t designed for VoIP and won’t be able to handle the additional load that comes with the technology. If this sounds like something you need, then make sure the router supports PPPoE or another protocol before buying it.
Hook up your PC directly to your modem
If your PC is hooked up through an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi connection and then forwarded through another device such as a router or switch, it could cause problems when making calls over VoIP services such as Skype or Google Voice.
Upgrade your router
The first thing you need to do is upgrade your router. The older devices often don’t support VoIP as well as newer ones do. You can find routers that have been specifically designed for VoIP on sites like Amazon and eBay. These routers will allow you to get the most out of your system without any problems.
Test your internet speed
Another important step is testing your internet speed before installing any VoIP equipment in your office or home office (HOA). This will ensure that you have enough bandwidth available for all of your employees or family members who use the internet at home or work on it every day. You should also test each employee’s computer individually so that we can determine which systems are causing problems with our VoIP service.
