Our Hosted VOIP Solutions
What is VOIP?
VOIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol – in essence phone calls are run through an internet connection rather than the old analogue or digital (ISDN) network.
Why should I consider VOIP?
The existing ISDN infrastructure will no longer be supported by BT, in the near future and will be replaced by VOIP moving forward. Speak to one of the team to find out your options, businesses need to be thinking about what they need in the next couple of years now!
What does it cost?
Hosted VOIP telephony works on a per user license arrangement, so it is determined by the numbers of extensions you need and locations. Different tariffs are available that either include all domestic calls or have a call rate card. We would analyse your usage and make recommendations.
What is a Leased Line?
This is a dedicated internet connection from your business/ office directly to the BT exchange, this means you have a faster internet connection with greater bandwidth.
What is the difference between Broadband and a Leased Line?
A Broadband connection is the same service as your home broadband, it’s service is contended with all other businesses in your location and can cost between £30 and £50 per month, a leased line is your very own un-contended internet connection, cost is determined by the bandwidth options available at the location.
Which connection is right for my business?
- SoHo – Broadband connections are still great solutions for small businesses, home offices and start-ups, given their minimal cost.
- SME – Depending on the number of staff and budget, a fibre-based connection would likely be most beneficial while still providing exceptional value for money.
- Enterprise – Without performing a detailed technology and operational audit, it would be hard to advise one particular solution. But private connections are most suited to large businesses that rely on their connectivity for their day-to-day operations.
Current business-specific ADSL broadband may not be fast or robust enough to facilitate the multiple services that your business needs to access reliably via its internet connection. Our products cater for every budget and business need – from ADSL Broadband through to Fibre Ethernet Leased lines. We work with all of the major network operators in the UK to ensure that we can deliver you the right connectivity at the right price.
Our Converged Connectivity products allow you to consolidate legacy Telecoms services over Data connections with guaranteed bandwidth for voice and video. Our managed router and Firewall services allow us to provide you with secure Internet access and other services like Office WiFi, as well as providing us remote diagnostics for troubleshooting if issues arise. All of our Connectivity services can be designed in a resilient setup, ensuring that Internet access is available when you need it.

Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) incorporate everything that’s connected to the internet, it is the concept of enabling devices and gadgets around the home, or within the workplace to talk to one another. Smart devices, AI and robots all contribute to IoT systems. IoT has revolutionised the way we connect to the internet, allowing an always-on connection.
From bike locks and trackers to SIM cards in Gardening machinery; IoT is not only changing the way we live, but it’s changing the way we work. Imagine driving to work and your phone is able to detect where you are in your journey and turns on your heating before you arrive. Or perhaps you want to reduce your water consumption; in which instance you would turn to the intelligence of smart sprinklers and irrigation controllers.
In the workplace specifically, IoT can be effective in cutting costs and driving efficiencies by making objects and devices more intelligent. In allowing more intelligent systems into your business, you could see your staff happier; think vending machines that ask to be refilled as soon as they need to be, or desks that warn you when you’ve been sitting down for too long.
A consequence of a happier team is that they will work far more effectively. On top of this, your business will be able to offer an even more elevated customer service which will encourage trust, credibility and loyal customers.
Internet of Things (IoT) FAQs
Who would use IoT?
IoT technology is transforming a wide range of industries. Retailers are using it to delight their customers; with smart shelves, interactive digital displays and highly personalised marketing. In healthcare, it’s helping clinicians deliver better care to individuals and improve their wellbeing—with medication alerts, real-time ambulance tracking, heart monitoring devices and so much more. And in industries like manufacturing, it’s helping increase productivity, while improving safety, reducing costs and protecting the environment.
Whatever industry you’re in, the potential benefits of IoT are immense. Leverage our expertise and experience in your sector to accelerate and de-risk your IoT initiatives.
What is Industrial equipment monitoring?
Industrial equipment monitoring uses a network of connected sensors – either native to a piece of equipment or retrofitted – to inform owners/operators of a machine’s output, component conditions, need for service or impending failure. Industrial equipment monitoring is an IoT solution which can utilise an IoT platform to unify disparate data and enable decision makers to respond to real-time data.
What is Edge computing?
Edge computing is a method which enables devices to process data at or near where it is collected instead of sending it to a data centre or to the cloud. Edge computing is used to achieve local optimised control, operate in spite of intermittent connectivity or immediately filter data, sending only what is necessary to the cloud.
