If you are looking forward to setting up a telecommunication system for your business, there is no need for you to make a substantial amount of investment. Nor will you have to opt for a high-tech, expensive project that will be a technical nightmare for you. You just have to set up a VoIP-based telecommunication system. The most amazing part is that you will be able to do that with a shoestring budget. You just have to follow a few steps.
1st Step – getting the right phone(s)
Prior to setting up your own telecommunication system, the first and foremost thing that you need to do is to select the right kind of VoIP phones, or in other words, phone sets that are compatible with VoIP-PBX. You need to make sure that the sets you opt for are the latest ones, with all kinds of latest options that will come to you as value-addition. There are a number of companies that come up with these phones at present. You will just have to do some probing on the net, and if you feel too much confused because of the abundance of options (which at times, happens to people) you can take the help of experts, though for that you will have to shell out some amount.
2nd Step – getting a phone number and creating your own telephone system
After you have acquired the best phone sets from the market, you need to make the first real move. You need to sign up to make a VoIP account. Once you have signed up to create your account, you will have to get some phone numbers (the set of phones numbers that you will need will depend upon the number of phones you will be needing for your set up to run). You will have to purchase the numbers, and this is a pretty simple process. Log in to your account, and you will find an option that reads, ‘Phone Numbers’. You will have to click on it, and it will offer you another option, which says, ‘Add Phone Numbers’. You will have to use this option to get a number. However, you will need your area code, and then select the number. You will have to make a payment to procure a number, but that amount if extremely modest, and almost meager.
3rd Step – adding an inbound telephone and one VoIP phone
This step involves creating an inbound phone and a VoIP based phone, and for that you will have to connect the ‘Inbound Phone’ element to the ‘VoIP Phone’ element. Both these elements are available in the system, and you will just have to connect the two with each other by following the instructions given. Everything is menu-driven and you will not have any problem in doing so. Once you set up the connection between the two elements, anyone how dials your inbound phone numbers will be able get in touch with you over the VoIP phone.
4th Step – registration of the physical phone with ringroost
The 4th step is somewhat tricky, wherein you will have to register your physical VoIP phone with the VoIP Phone Element. The process is easy though. You will find an option that reads SIP Host, SIP Username, and SIP Password. You will have to register these three things, in order to connect and register with your physical telephone. Once you do this, you will be able to use the VoIP phone as well as the conventional phone simultaneously.
So you see, setting up your own VoIP–based system is not at all tough. You will just have to follow some simple steps to establish your own VoIP-based telecommunication system, totally customized to serve your business purpose.
