Deciding on the right VoIP solution that complements your business is enough to make anyone lightheaded. The pros and cons of each type of solution – on-premise, hosted, or hybrid – need to be evaluated and boiled down to the optimal choice that aligns with your organization’s goals.
Before embarking on the dizzying journey of which type of VoIP solution is right for you, there are several key considerations that should be reviewed:
Completing this assessment will help gauge which solution will deploy the capabilities, functionality, and scalability that your organization is wanting.
Now back to the three different types of VoIP solutions. What are some of the key differentiators between on-premise, hosted, and hybrid?
On-premise VoIP solutions mean the IP PBX equipment and IP phones are installed on-site. While Cloud-based offerings have become all the rage, there are still circumstances that call for an on-premise solution.
Rather than owning the necessary equipment like you would for an on-premise VoIP solution, a service provider owns and manages the equipment, software, and infrastructure for you in their own data center.
A hybrid VoIP solution is intended to combine the advantages of an on-premise solution with those of a purely hosted solution. Hybrid VoIP solution combines existing legacy PBX equipment with VoIP, enabling you to explore the flexibility and scalability of the Cloud without having to dive in completely.
If you are wanting to upgrade your voice solution, but do not want to replace the expensive PBX equipment and cabling that you’ve invested in, a hybrid VoIP can be the solution for you. One type of solution would be where the PBX has a VoIP gateway, allowing businesses to connect to VoIP devices using any existing headsets and lines. Another type of hybrid VoIP solution is where some of your equipment are on-premise and some are hosted by the service provider. The on-premise PBX then opens your solution to the full suite of services hosted in your service provider’s data center.
