What is the most basic setup for a full-featured VoIP system?

Q: What is the most basic setup for a full-featured, Unified Communications system? I am looking for an on-premise system with some kind of mobile phone integration for starters like SMS and email. Is there a go-anywhere bundle?

A: An on-premise system would typically entail a PBX of sorts (the core of your network). The phone system runs into the PBX then typically through a network switch or router then to the phones. Click here take a look at this diagram, this is a very basic idea.

Most of our VoIP providers come with a mobile app which allows you to utilize your service remotely on your cell phone. In this scenario, you would go with a hosted provider, not an on-premise solution. I would recommend a hosted service that eliminates the need to purchase hardware upfront and you don’t need to be held responsible for any management or updates. We work with multiple industry-leading VoIP Service providers and they are fairly inexpensive to get you started. For a hosted service, it would be roughly $20 per user a month.

First, you would settle on a provider and then confirm phones compatible with their service.
