Office Telephony

Jun 13th, 2013 | by Tope Olutola

Let’s think about it, practically every business needs its employees to effectively communicate with each other and its clients. However, in our part of the world, what we normally see in companies is a phone being passed around whenever an external call has to be made. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE SO !!

How can ETN.CONNECT help you solve this problem?

First, know this! You can use your existing infrastructure and may not have to buy a new equipment at all. If you have the following you may not have to buy a thing.

  1. An old computer – Desktop or Laptop
  2. An existing and functioning Lan network
  3. IP phones


How we will execute

Step 1 : We will deploy that your old computer as a Voice Over Internet Protocol server. This is where all your voice communications and links will be terminated. Think of it like the big box installed on the old PSTN networks.

On this box, we will program all the telephone accounts and lines that you will be using to communicate in the office. Guess what! With this system, you are NOT limited by account limitations. You can have as many lines as possible. Well..Don’t try to start a communications company 🙂 . The only limitation you have is the computer memory and CPU power.

Step 2: We will link the server computer to your Local Area Network. All we will do is connect a CAT5 or 6 cable to your switch which we expect should have already been connected to a router.

Step 3: We now connect your IP phones to your LAN. If the phones are true IP phones, ETN.CONNECT only needs to link the cable to the same switch your VOIP server is connected to. However, if the phones are PSTN (regular tabletop phones) then an adapter will be needed that connects the R45 PSTN cable to CAT 5 or 6 cable.

Step 4: Technically, we are done. If you however need to be able to make calls outside the office, there is a way we can link the SIM card with a box ( Must Purchase) and then all calls from the office uses the same number.

In conclusion, what I have just described here is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many things that can be done in multiple variations with our Voice Over IP packages. Why not contact a relationship officer today.
