When you decide to switch over to a hosted phone system, you should expect a complete network analysis to be done. This analysis will inspect your current network to ensure that it is up to handling the increased demands that come with hosted phone systems.
During the analysis, technicians will connect with your service provider to ensure that you have enough bandwidth to cover all of the calls. Most high-speed connections and corporate networks are able to handle these demands, but it is always a good idea to do a network analysis to be completely sure. Then, if any issues are found, they can be resolved before they begin to cause any problems with your hosted phone systems.
Why Completing a Network Analysis is Important
It is extremely important to complete a network analysis before setting up your new hosted phone systems. If a network analysis is not performed, there could be unknown issues with your network that could potentially lead to dropped calls or other disasters. Since the nature of these issues would be unknown, it could take hours, days, or even weeks to solve the problem. In the meantime, your customers could have a lot of trouble contacting you. As such, your customers would become unhappy, which is bad for business.
In order to avoid this dilemma, you simply need to complete a network analysis before setting up your hosted phone system. Then, any problems found during the network analysis could be fixed before they impact your customers or your business. This is why Phonetel offers network analysis, an extremely valuable service, to all of our new hosted phone systems customers.
