We have been using these guys for over 3 years now and while initially was little nervous due to my horrible experience with another VoIP provider these guys surpassed my expectations. They asked right questions and quickly brought me on board by helping me make right choices. They have always been able to address my technical issues and sometimes have gone a step ahead and helped me with issues on my end. I have gone to these guys with all kind of requests and issues and have never had any moment of disappointment. All I can say is once you switch to these guys you will never need to look else where. They have it all Quality, Competitive Price, Customizable products, Top of the line customer service. And I have recently started using their SMS service which I am loving.
These guys talk the talk but when it comes down to tech abilities its a big fat ZERO!! Couple guys from India sitting in they're apartment, probably students trying to meet tuition. I signed up to test if this would even work as many fall short when it comes to SIP trunking. The trunk registered but they couldn't even tell me what my IP was, they said it was *.*.*.* when its is actually -.-.-.- and blamed it on my server. The IP they gave me was from the PC I signed up with.Then I registered it with a server across town at another clients place and same thing. Blaming me blaming me blaming me they didn't even have the tools to really see what was going on with the trunk as they are some lame re seller of a re seller so ya I guess you get what you pay for. I couldn't do a wire shark as the calls didn't even reach my server. Its like this with most of these guys. they blame you and try to belittle you when they are sending the DID incorrectly or a header for a phone not a server. If you have GRANDSTREAM stay away from these guys. Maybe stay away regardless of your equipment.
This review comes from a global operation with over 1000 employees and over 60 locations in the USA and Canada. We used Cyclix redundant SIP Trunk product which simplified our VoIP Enterprise Solution. We've managed VoIP phone systems since the early 2000's when they were first being introduced. We slowly transitioned from PRI/T1 technology to SIP with Cyclix over the years with a near flawless transition. Voice quality never suffered. As always with any transition we did have some hurdles or incompatibilities but the Cyclix support engineering staff helped resolve and even provide guidance to our integrator. I would highly recommend Cyclix to any Small to Medium sized business looking for SIP Trunk Solutions or Hosted solutions.
I've been involved in every step of the process of replacing a myriad of phone systems that we maintain between about 18 sites. We wanted a unified solution for all our locations regardless of state lines and network capabilities. Cyclix has taken care of that in spades. We're operating multiple voip lines on 1mbps pipes over VPN tunnels and the quality of the audio is still there! Our old phone bill has already gone down enough to cover 2/3rds of what we pay for our new service and there are still multiple lines to cut over from the old vendor that would more than cover the cost of monthly operations. Support is readily available and dedicated to making sure problems get solved while you're on the phone, not during a callback when it gets escalated to a higher level technician. All tiers of support are pleasant and knowledgeable at their level of proficiency. I'm not quite sure the feature set would be capable enough for an enterprise grade operation but you'd probably be running your own in house system at that point anyway. For an SMB company, everything you'd need is available and running out of the gate. The only issues I have at the moment are with phone quality and training. The Polycoms we've received seem to have a higher than normal failure rate but we've received replacement devices promptly and they come preconfigured. Your mileage may vary, but it might be worth considering using a Cisco phone system to get a more stable desk set. The training program was recently designed and could use some work. I think once they get the kinks worked out, there could be a lot of benefit there, but it's not quite up to snuff yet. It's also worth noting that we haven't had a single service outage during our time with them. Overall I'm very pleased with our service and would definitely chose them again for our phone system.
