Differences and Similarities

While VoIP is quite different from traditional landline phone systems, this doesn’t mean it’s difficult to understand or set up. In fact, it’s very easy to assemble, and connecting a phone line takes less than a half hour. VoIP relies on an internet connection to function, and this means it needs an ethernet connection. This is quite different from a traditional landline, but ends up being even more reliable. All basic functions are essentially the same, however; the keypads are the same, the design is similar, and equipment like speakers and structural elements are the same. This makes it simple to adjust to the new system.


The only requirement for VoIP is a stable internet connection, and an IT team like DataStream will do the rest. The phone lines must be established by an internet provider, but do not require a separate cable connection. Each phone line is run like an account rather than a phone number, which makes it easy to switch between different lines on the same phone. The only thing you really need to sustain a VoIP system is internet.

Why Choose VoIP?

Not only is it more efficient, but it will help move your business into the future. You’ll be opening yourself up to some of the most advanced technologies for business, and you’ll keep up with the competition. Communication lends itself to functionality, meaning better connections equals better business. VoIP is simple to use, easy to assemble, and even more helpful when you realize that all you need to use it is the internet.

Who to Call?

Are you ready to assemble your VoIP system? You’ll need to call some professionals if you don’t have an inside IT team that is qualified to assemble something like this. There are plenty of local businesses that have the ability to assemble a VoIP system, but that doesn’t mean they’re the best. When searching for the perfect IT company, make sure you’re assessing their customer service, their certifications, and their reputation. How much do they know about business technology? Do they work with businesses your size? Do you have any way to preview their work via consultation?

DataStream Communications is the VoIP provider you’re looking for. We make it simple to connect you with the top phone vendors, and we provide 99.9% stability with your network connection. With customizable packages, we are more convenient and trustworthy than big box companies, and we’re looking for your best interest. Get started today on your new VoIP phone system!
