There are many different events that may trigger a move to VoIP such as:
Move to / addition of a new facility.
Replacement of aging TDM equipment.
Need to integrate call features across multiple locations.
Need to centralize disparate voicemail systems.
Support for mobile/virtual workforce.
Expansion / upgrade of network.
Business continuity / voice survivability.
Expiration of Service Provider contract.
But, regardless of your enterprises needs for moving to IP telephony, you can rest assured that Aastra will always let you get there at your own pace.
While Aastra was a pioneer of VoIP in the 1990s, we recognize that the importance of VoIP isn’t “technology for technology’s sake”, but the benefits that can be realized in costs savings, productivity gains, improved flexibility and increased agility and responsiveness.
Reduced call costs by pushing calls over the corporate network, streamlining of communication platforms through the convergence of IT and communication systems, and voice survivability through network redundancy all play a role in helping businesses to reap the benefits of adopting IP technology.
Aastra Phones offer advanced features:
Multi Cast Paging: Aastra telephones have a built in paging system that works on the local area network without the need to access the hosted switching system. Any number of stations can be included in each paging group.
Each group requires a group paging key dedicated in the paging initiation telephone set.
Speed Dial under the dial pad: Aastra SIP phones have the ability to register a complete telephone number as a secondary function of each key 0-9, # and*. By depressing the key for longer than 1 second, the pre programmed number will be dialed by the telephone set. It works with the speaker phone, handset and a headset if so configured.
Hi-Q audio support: All Aastra sets can be configured to operate using the G722 high definition audio codec.
