Disadvantages

  • Because low or unstable Internet bandwidths can lead to poor call quality, you will need a stable Internet connection (ADSL,VDSL, fiber, 4G).

  • If the Internet connection fails, no calls are possible. peoplefone offers you a free backup solution. 
  • In the case of long fax transmissions, the connection may break.
  • In case of emergency calls problems can occur. We recommend using the mobile phone for emergency calls or specifically mentioning your location. 

Please note:

  • You can integrate analog faxes into the VoIP network via a VoIP adapter (ATA). Due to manufacturer specific differences, transmission errors can occur in practice. Large fax volumes or a large amount of fax pages can lead to a complete disrupt of fax transmission. 
  • Caution when converting ISDN connections of an alarm system or a fire detection system into an IP connection. Consult with your installation partner, your insurance or alarm center. 
  • The company usually only has one DSL Internet connection for data transmission. If this connection/port is also used for voice transmissions, you will need a sufficient bandwidth. Fist formula: 100 kb/s is required per call. Recommendation from our VoIP expert: Especially with companies with a high data volume, two DSL connections are reasonable. One line is used for data transmissions, while the second line is used for voice transmissions. If you used the line from different suppliers, you will create additional backups.
  • Is your internal network (LAN) already "voice ready" (suitable for voice transmission)? The voice transmission provides specific requirements to network components such as Ethernet switches, routers and firewalls. This ensures a good voice quality (keyword: Quality of Service).
  • Analog modems, e.g. (old) EC-cash, credit card systems, postage meters and alarms, cannot be used within the VoIP network.
