h 323 phones

h_323_phonesIf you want to know about H 323 phones then it might be an idea to understand what h.323 is and perhaps compare it against the emerging communications technology of SIP. 
A good reference for h 323 phones standards can be found at “packetizer . com / h323_vs_sip !

Best Internet Phone

best_internet_phoneThe term “best internet phone†is open to much interpretation.Best_Internet_Phone_25_OFF

There is a question on whether the best internet phone is a USB phone connected through your laptop PC to the Internet; a SIP phone linked to a business’s phone system; or a mobile phone that’s able to access the internet through 3G or 4G services.

best_internet_phone_from_SamsungAt TelephoneSystemsDirect we can probably help you in your best internet phone search as we do supply phones in all three of these interpretations.

Firstly there is the Phonapart VoIP-USB phone for less than £15 that could be considered as the best internet phone due to its cheapness, then there is the SMT-i3105 IP phone from Samsung that compliments the BEST BUY OfficeServ7030 and OfficeServ7400 VoIP-enabled phone systems and finally the latest in iPhones – here we’re non-competitive owing to the cut-throat nature of sales of mobiles – again there is a discussion going on suggesting that Android operating software will oust what was the market leader.



Best_Internet_Phone_platSo don’t guess at what’s the best internet phone – call us on 0800 652 8052 to have a chat.  We’ve been a holder of the prestigious SME Reseller of the Year trophy and with our Platinum accreditation with our prime supplier, this should assure you we treat our customers exceedingly well.

DSL Phone Line

dsl_phone_lineWhat is a dsl phone line? dsl phone line.pdf

Well there are two flavours of dsl phone line – firstly there what many people at home know as Broadband which is more correctly known as ADSL.

This A- dsl phone line is Asynchronous – which means you only get transmission of data in one direction at a time – either send or receive.

In business the other format is an S- dsl phone line. This is Synchronous – identifying that you can upload or download simultaneously – but this comes at a higher tariff and you pay for the speed you require to run your office efficiently.

dsl_phone_line_-platinumToday we are getting nearer to the replacement for a dsl phone line – that will be a SIP phone line. These high-speed digital subscriber lines (dsl phone line) will soon become commonplace throughout the UK delivering multi-media broadcasts, video on demand, HD TV and Heaven knows what else to us all – WATCH OUT for the costs initially – and wait until all the engineers have been fully trained.

That’s 0800 652 8052 to speak to TelephoneSystemsDirect about a dsl phone line to save you money.

internet phone

internet_phoneFor your internet phone you use a technology called VoIP which stands for Voice over Internet Protocol – it is the standard for the carriage of voice-packets from end-to-end that prioritises them over the common-or-garden internet page information.  You have probably realised that a conversation has to occur in real time – whereas the display of a website-page can be delayed by a few seconds without problem.

At TelephoneSystemsDirect we can help you choose your internet phone from a huge array of models from many manufacturers as diverse as Samsung and Phoneapart.  internet_phone.pdf    internet_phone_3100_series.pdf

One’s extremely good at business solutions.internet_phone_-_phonapart

Don’t purchase the first internet phone you see as there are “horses for courses†(as they say).  At home your internet voip phone could be as cheap as £15 with Phoneapart’s USB model – but in a firm you’d be better served with a handset like Samsung’s SMT-i3105.

Call us free on 0800 652 8052 with your query on any internet phone.

internet voip phone

internet_voip_phoneAn internet voip phone is an oxymoron! Really the internet part of internet voip phone is superfluous.  It is put into the phrase to signify that the internet is used to transport the digitised speech.  It is truer to say that any data network can be utilised – an office LAN or the newest SIP networks.

VoIP is Voice over Internet Protocol – it is the standard for the carriage of voice-packets from end-to-end that prioritises them over the common-or-garden internet page information.  As you know, a conversation has to occur in real time – whereas the display of a website-page can be delayed by a few seconds without problem.

So your internet voip phone can be called an internet phone or a voip phone.

internet_voip_phone_-_phonapartAt TelephoneSystemsDirect we can help you choose your internet voip phone from a huge array of models from many manufacturers as diverse as Phoneapart and Samsung.

internet_voip_phone.pdf     internet_voip_phone_3100_series.pdf

Don’t purchase the first internet voip phone you see as there are (as they say) “horses for coursesâ€.  At home your internet voip phone could be as cheap as £15 with Phoneapart’s offerings – but in business you’d be better served with something like Samsung’s SMT-i3105.

Call us free on 0800 652 8052 with your query on an internet voip phone.

dect ip phone

dect_ip_phoneThe Samsung SMTi-W5120 can be considered a DECT IP phone.  It is the logical DECT IP phone solution to mobility where you have a wireless LAN utilising IEEE 802.11 a,b/g  dect_ip_phone.pdf

The W5120 compares with the DECT300 and DECT600 DECT IP phone packages that compliments the OfficeServ7000 series of VoIP-SIP enabled phone systems.

What to Buy for Business magazine rated the entry level OfficeServ7030 and enterprise class OfficeServ7400 BEST BUYS.  This rating was done without the knowledge that Telephone Systems Direct discount these products by 25% from the manufacturer’s recommended retail prices.  That includes handsets as well as the main processor units and all accessory modules and most applications.

dect_ip_phone_wi-fiSo for your DECT IP phone solutions dial 0800 652 8052 where the TelephoneSystemsDirect advisors can explain the pros and cons of DECT versus Wi-Fi.

That’s 0800 652 8052 for DECT IP phone sales and queries.

Broadband Phone

broadband_phoneYour broadband phone enables you to work at home while actually being in the office – well that’s what your clients will think!  The broadband phone connects seamlessly via VoIP technology allowing your DDI calls to your normal extension to ring in your house.  You have all the same features and functionality with the broadband phone so you can transfer to reception, or to the sales desk at the press of a one-touch button.  You can access your voicemail through your broadband phone just as you would have done if you’d been into a meeting on site.  Broadband_Phone
