Have a look at the following key factors that you should consider when setting up an IP phone solution.
1. Configuration, Provisioning, and Management
Cloud provisioning and administration systems' capacity to install modern IP phones without having to touch each one, provide centralized control, and simplify device customization. Grandstream's Grandstream Device Management System provides all of this and more (GDMS). We'll go over GDMS in greater detail later, but first, consider how cloud management has simplified IP phone implementation.
2. On-site Network Infrastructure
There are three significant local network parameters that will influence which phones you should consider:
Is the network wired, wireless, or a hybrid?
While wired networks are still the most frequent, VoIP-over-Wi-Fi networks are becoming more common as Wi-Fi speeds catch up to wired speeds. Even if you don't require Wi-Fi-capable IP phones right now, chances are you will in the near future. There are several Wi-Fi capable versions in the GRP series.
In terms of speed, what is the local network's capacity?
We recommend deploying phones with Gigabit connections to support up to 1000Mbps if the local network supports speeds over 100Mbps and the voice solution will be used often.
Will the gadgets you install have PoE access?
Is a PoE switch available, or can one be added? PoE is a cost-effective approach to deliver both a connection and power over a single cable, which simplifies installation, although it may not be suitable for every location due to facility layout.
3. Choose the Best IP Phone for Every User
Number of Calls
Do they make and receive a lot of calls, or do they only use the phone on occasion? A bigger number of lines and SIP accounts for frequent users will allow them to handle several calls at once.
Is the user in regular contact with a large number of people? Is the company looking for presence in their voice solution? If that's the case, you'll want phones with more BLF/speed-dial keys and/or extension modules. Are callers being transferred and placed on hold? If that's the case, having more lines available is advantageous.
Is the phone going to be relocated around the office? Will it be used by employees to commute between work and home? Wi-Fi-enabled IP phones are ideal for mobility, but if you prefer a cable connection, PoE is advised to avoid the need for a power source.
Speakerphones and headsets
Most users will want to utilize a headset, so ensure sure the IP phones you choose are suitable. RJ9 has long been the most widely used protocol, allowing EHS wireless headsets to be used, but USB and Bluetooth are now commonplace.
