Why It’s Time to Upgrade!

Most Businesses around Ireland are still using old Nortel Meridian Phone Systems. Below is a number of reasons why your business should think about upgrading from a Nortel system.

1. Power

Due to state-of-the-art power efficient technology, new phone systems are far more cost efficient than older systems. Research conducted by Avita Communications show that many established businesses are still using outdated Nortel Meridian Systems, unaware of the potential cost savings available. This new technology means that newer systems can Save up to 85% on Electricity costs alone.

2. Reduced Service Agreement Cost’s

The Nortel brand went bankrupt in 2013, which reduced the availability of replacement parts and skilled Nortel engineers. As a result, Service Level Agreement costs are far more expensive than other providers, such as Alcatel-Lucent. If you replace your system with Avita Communications, you will receive one years maintenance free.

3. VoIP/SIP – Advanced communication and connectivity.

As Nortel systems use older technology which is now outdated, these systems cannot take advantage of VoIP/SIP, which many businesses are changing to in order to further increase cost savings. Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is used to initiate VoIP connections, allowing your PBX (telephone system) to connect to the public telephone network. It allows you to make and receive calls from your phone system through the internet rather than through traditional ISDN or PSTN phone lines.

What are the benefits of SIP?

SIP offers most businesses cost savings of more than 60% compared to ISDN
All inter-office calls are free and worldwide calling comes with much lower call tariffs.
Unlike with ISDN, SIP allows you add or remove phone lines as necessary without the need to purchase any extra equipment.
Our SIP solution can be easily integrated with your existing setup.
