The cloud is dramatically transforming how small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) operate. The operational benefits and efficiencies of cloud-computing are becoming increasingly accepted and adopted. Migration to cloud technologies has not only involved production servers and software, but also critical applications such as VoIP business phone systems.
There are many advantages for an SMB to implement a hosted VoIP business phone system. See here, here and here. Hosted VoIP is a way for an SMB to get enterprise-class features and functionalities at an SMB price.
In addition, the availability of fiber connectivity is progressively expanding. Fiber-ready office environments are becoming more commonplace. With its inherent speed and performance improvements, fiber makes an SMB’s transition to the cloud that much smoother.
This convergence, Cloud-VoIP-Fiber, has led to unprecedented levels of bandwidth consumption. Fortunately, the per unit cost for bandwidth has decreased significantly. And, with fiber circuits, SMB’s can quickly dial up additional bandwidth more cost effectively than ever before. Here at ATC, we have worked with clients to double their bandwidth at a fraction of the cost.
