What exactly is hosted telephony?

In essence, this is cloud technology. It’s straightforward:

Rubix will transfer your phone system into a data centre (this is where the “hosted” part comes in). This enables voice and data to be delivered to your premises over a fast internet connection.

The concept of a phone call doesn’t change. It’s just routed differently. Your staff make, receive and transfer calls over a “virtual” phone line. Data is delivered over the same line – ie business-grade broadband, emails and so on. Everything your “old” system does can be done via a hosted system And, more. If you would like us to identify the best prices for your business or have a question, please complete drop us a line.

FAQ’S

Apologies, but we’re not sure yet. If you’ve not reviewed your telecoms services for some time, it’s likely that your bills are too high. And, it's also likely that savings with us could be substantial. Email us a copy of your bill. Rubix VT will offer you a calculation, free of charge. We’ll work out your monthly savings, incorporating your current monthly spend – and what you could be spending with us instead. Of course, there’s no obligation with our bills analysis.

A great deal, actually. With cloud-based telephony, Rubix VT enables flexible and remote working to the highest standards. Importantly, nobody needs to know that your staff aren’t in the office – even your hard-working receptionist. With confidence, your employees can make outbound calls and receive inbound calls with “softphone” functionality on their pcs or laptops.

For most businesses, a reliable, fast broadband more than suffices. Most addresses have access to 'SoGEA', a fibre broadband connection which delivers download speeds of up to 80 Mbps, and upload speeds of up to 20 Mbps. If not, we'll find you the best alternative that is available. If your business needs to transfer large amount of data, then you may want to consider installing a leased line, which offers powerful and lightning-fast uploads and downloads. If you have a regular broadband service such as SoGEA, it is likely you will be sharing your line with other users, but this is still secure and fast enough for most businesses. A leased line offers dedicated internet access and you won't be sharing your line with other users. Understandably, this is a more expensive option. If you wanted faster broadband without upgrading to a leased line, we offer business-grade broadband, and this could be your best option.  

Historically, many companies have run their phone system using servers based in their premises. It was an expensive option and is no longer necessary. Of course, if you prefer to have your own server and phone systems, we can always support your set-up. When we say we will 'host' your telecoms, we mean we will run it from the cloud ie. a data centre, which is secure and reliable. As well as being more cost-effective (less expensive kit to buy), it is also more flexible and is constantly being updated. For instance, the cloud can turn any device with internet access into a phone. Don’t worry – get in touch with us if you’re not sure.
