Reduce Infrastructure Costs
VoIP desk phones reduce the need for costly and time consuming changes to the building cabling.
A traditional circuit switched telephone system must have a pair of wires between its inbuilt ports and the desk phones, and each port is dedicated to an individual user. So, when a phone gets moved, the building wiring must also be changed to provide connection to the new location, and this typically requires a technician to come to site and make changes.
The flexibility of VoIP means that the phone is just another device in the network, so all the user needs to do is unplug the desk phone from the old location and move it into available LAN socket at the new location and join the network – no other work is required.
And, in addition, some VoIP business phones have the ability for a PC to be connected through them. This means that only a single cable is needed for both the PC and VoIP phone, which substantially reduces the cost of building cabling.
