Due to the extreme advancement in telecommunications technology over the past decade, a lot of companies are being bombarded with new ideas and products for reliable and secure business phone systems that claim to be revolutionary. Many of these new technologies seem to grab a great deal of attention from tech sites, trade magazines and at industry conferences.
The technology darling of late is Cloud VoIP. Cloud VoIP is a necessary upgrade for many businesses that are still using an antiquated PBX landline phone system.
