Deciding To Install a New Onsite Phone System May "Buck The Trend" of Cloud Deployments, But There Are Strategic Reasons To Consider It.

Onsite As A Strategic Choice

When considering a new business phone system, your company has more options than ever. Here are a few things to consider about on-premises communications platforms.

First, what's your current situation? Are you connecting your phones to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) with a legacy, analog system like TDM? If you are, you'll find immediate cost savings by making a change to voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service delivery. You could consider a hosted cloud PBX solution, or you can consider switching to a VoIP trunk and retaining full operational management and control of your service.

Do you have IT resources at hand?


If they're accustomed to managing and maintaining an onsite communications system (whether TDM or IP), they may want to consider managing the service in-house. Some companies are required to control their own data for security or privacy reasons, so an onsite phone system is right for them. Other companies simply feel more comfortable knowing that they are in control of all maintenance, management, and upgrades.

Your company is a good candidate for an onsite business phone solution if you are already running your own data center. With the growth of virtualization, more and more businesses have eliminated redundant and expensive servers and instead rely on VMware and Hyper-V technologies to share hardware resources across an array of applications.

Deploying a virtualized communications platform on your industry-standard x86 servers makes good sense and increases your data center ROI. With MiTel, companies that have multiple locations across wide distances can even "mix and match" their onsite deployments, putting the virtual phone system at their headquarters while utilizing fail-safe, solid state ShoreTel voice switch appliances in field offices.
