Why NocTel

Our speciality is providing a unique solution that allows you to focus on your organizational goals

Hosted systems at a glance

A hosted telephone system is a PBX (Private Branch Exchange) that exists off-site that is owned and maintained by a company that provides service for a large number of organizations.

With multiple institutions sharing the same PBX, hosted systems allow organizations to outsource upkeep and development of communication services and features. Hosted phone systems became much more accessible to the general public when Internet infrastructure became sufficient enough to support cost-effective telephony solutions.

Before hosted systems were readily available, many organizations were required to own and maintain PBXs in order to be able to communicate via telephones. Calls made within an on-premise system are routed through the PBX before getting sent out the service lines installed by the phone company and directed to their final destination.

POTS and PRI versus SIP

Many phone systems today still use cables specifically provided by your telephone service provider to run voice traffic from your organization to its destination.

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is the modern alternative to PRI where the cables utilize a network connection to run voice traffic over the same lines that you use for anything else your organization does online.

Easy customization

With SIP you can completely customize your network to fit your exact needs at the click of a button. PRIs require on-site work to accomplish the same goals. Organizations that need to scale the amount of users or lines can greatly benefit from a SIP solution.

It's more cost effective

By eliminating the extra hardware, organizations are able to save money on deployment and installation in addition to upkeep and maintenance.

SIP allows for higher quality

SIP allows for much greater frequency ranges and what is known as wideband calls, or HD voice. A modern conference phone from Polycom can cover a range from 160 Hz to 22,000 Hz, which covers and goes beyond what the average human ear can discern.

NARROWBAND VS HD VOICE

See the difference

PRI and POTS lines are limited by their bandwidth to what is referred to as narrowband calls, meaning their frequency range is limited from 300 Hz to about 3400 Hz. SIP allows for much greater frequency ranges and what is known as wideband calls, or HD voice. A modern conference phone from Polycom can cover a range from 160 Hz to 22,000 Hz, which covers and goes beyond what the average human ear can discern.

NARROWBAND VS HD VOICE

Hear the difference

Due to SIP’s drastically larger frequency range, people utilizing HD voice for the first time often comment that it sounds like person on the other end of the phone is there in person with them. Nearly all handset manufacturers now regularly include HD voice in even their cheapest models which makes it readily available to organizations that use SIP trunks for service.

“The results, pricing and turnaround time were outstanding to the point I don’t think there is a better option. The level of satisfaction I had with this solution led me to investigate NocTel’s other offerings as well.”
