Multiple landlines being used. All lines have quality issues and at times so bad customer can not be understood. It sounds as a really bad connection as if a cell phone where being used and it was breaking up. After 3 months of verified problems they finally came out and determined some of the equipment was bad. After replacing some of the equipment we were back and operational with no problems. Now the same problem has come back up and we are again having to use our personal cell phones for company use even though we are paying close to $600 a month for their services. Quest came out and stated that there equipment is not even all hooked up. We can not get a simple signal technical off of their computer monitoring program to physically come out and look at their equipment. Also internet connection is really slow and at times don't even work. Simple signal states that if the other company that shares the lines is watching a video on the internet it will cause interference with the phone lines. $600 a month seems pricy if you can't use internet connection and phone lines at the same time. My cell phone is capable of this and it only runs $100 a month
Great sound quality, very creative staff. The team put together my phone system for me, asked me how i imagined it could work in a perfect world, then built the system to those specifications (i didn't know they could do it the way i described, but it's great). The training staff was very prompt and friendly, got my team up to speed on the new features that will keep my co-workers in contact. Provisioning team helped keep the setup simple, pre-programmed everything so i just needed to plug in phones around the office. The support team has also been great, tweaking my setup for me, very nice. Service has been very reliable, very happy with the quality and sound.
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.
