Analog PBX or Digital Voice over IP (VoIP) Phone System
At first, this might not seem like a clear choice, at least until now: Viper VoIP™ is a game changer with low pricing, ongoing cost savings and ease of use.
Maybe you are still not convinced you should go with a digital PBX. If that is the case, the best analogy to use is comparing it to considering whether to buy a CD-player or an analog turntable. Both will play music and you can still buy most old records in both formats, but you are seriously limited in your selection with a turntable and you never know if spare parts will be around in a few years.
Purchasing an analog PBX will without a doubt be less expensive than a digital PBX. The reasons are many, but the main ones are analog PBXs are more or less antiquated and distributors are trying to get rid of inventory.
The cost of maintaining an analog PBX is significantly higher than for a digital PBX, and a confession of an analog phone system provider says it all: "Analog telephone systems is a cash cow for us...." Just maintaining separate wiring infrastructure for analog phones makes the analog PBX option less appealing and certainly reduces the initial cost gap between the two systems. Voice over IP can run on the same network as a computer, and let's face it - wherever there is a computer, there is usually a phone.
Looking into the future (which today means about 4-5 years), your next PBX system will be a digital one. Analog systems are already few and far between, and manufacturing is winding down production of these systems because they are significantly less profitable and harder to support.
Think you are not 'ready' for VoIP?? Think again, Viper VoIPTM can be deployed in any location that has an existing computer network or LAN, while maintaining the highest voice quality possible. There is no need to put in new wiring or reconfigure your network. We have decades of networking experience and can assure you it can be done.
