Re: Voice over IP
You must have a solid, well designed/kept up network and high quality cabling. Some folks share both Data and VOIP and some seperate them into 2 seperate networks. Businesses can put up with losing their Data network, but usually are not very tolerant about losing their voice communications. Cisco has come along way, but I still haven't heard of large corporations going fully with VOIP. Some use hybrid services, or VOIP in smaller (test areas) rather than entire network. Products have come down in price, competitive to PBX devices. Tons of options as far as universal messaging, ie., email, voicemail, text, etc. There is tons of info out there including pros and cons versus investment.
