Small business phone system
by Ivan Serrano
Technology is evolving at faster rates than before. According to Moore’s law, computing power doubles approximately every two years. That means you’ll be upgrading your phone systems pretty frequently. You can choose between a Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), which is older and more traditional, or a newer Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system. Although a lot of businesses still use PSTN, VoIP is becoming more popular all over the globe.
Whether you choose PSTN or VoIP will all depend on the nature of your business and your budget. Although VoIP systems are becoming more affordable, PSTNs are a bit more reliable on how well developed your own infrastructure is, whereas VoIP systems depend on infrastructure beyond your reach. The infographic below will show you a comparison between the two and their pros and cons so that you can make an informed decision on whether to stay the course or upgrade.
