Hosted Voice Services

Maryland, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., and Virginia are all susceptible to harsh east coast weather scenarios. If a storm takes out the city’s phone lines, your hosted voice services won’t fail and your business will still be able to communicate with customers.

By partnering with a Maryland hosted voice service, not only will your phone line be more resilient to weather, your employees will also be able to travel, work from home, and work off-site while still having access to incoming phone calls and voicemails.

Maryland hosted voice services

How does Hosted Voice Work?

A hosted voice system works by keeping the majority of any necessary equipment located on the premise of DataStream’s secure hosted voice exchange server. With the hosted voice service equipment offsite, your business won’t need to purchase or install any equipment at your location—rather, the equipment can be leased or loaned and needed software can be installed by DataStream.

When a hosted voice phone call is placed to your Maryland business, instead of being routed directly to the dialed number, the phone call is sent to the offsite hosted voice system; from there, via the internet, the phone call is sent to the extension of choice.

Why Switch From My Legacy Phone System

The modern office is now switching away from the legacy phone system and joining the ease, cost savings, and flexibility of a hosted voice service (PBX). We are seeing a huge shift in our service area of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, and Virginia, away from the traditional systems. Traditional legacy phone systems require complicated and costly hard-wiring for each and every phone in the building. The bottom line is a legacy phone system will cost you more money than a hosted voice system.

What Our Customers Say

Our relationship with DataStream began with a referral from our IT company. Navigating through the many different options for telephone service is a daunting task, but with DataStream, we felt like we had an honest, trusted partner. Throughout the entire process of migrating to our new phone system, DataStream was responsive, knowledgeable, and professional. Their equipment and services are top notch, and we couldn’t be happier with the end result!
