Voice over IP isn’t a new development. In fact, deployment of IP phone lines has surpassed analog lines worldwide and large enterprises with many distributed sites have increasingly adopted VOIP over POTS digital solutions.

Initially long distance savings was a major part of the rationale for VoIP. Now, with aggressive long distance pricing, LD savings is less of an incentive. There remains a strong business case for VoIP but often it’s a matter of picking the right time to consider it. For organizations ready to:

  • Upgrade their data network

  • About to move or expand their operations

  • Consider or upgrade a wireless network infrastructure

  • Replace their current phone system

  • Introduce or maximize computer telephony integration (CTI)

  • Implement or better enable call centers for inside sales or support staff

  • Provide their mobile workforce with better tools and support

  • Improve communications with staff, customers, and suppliers

VoIP has a solid ROI and potentially rapid payback.

COMU Networks regards VoIP and phone systems in general as an application or appliance. The primary objective of a phone system after all is “dial tone” and the ability to communicate by phone with customers, suppliers, staff, etc. A VoIP system has to have the reliability of a plain old phone system while delivering the additional features and functionality needed in today’s organizations. At COMU Networks we take a comprehensive view of VoIP within the context of current and future business needs and the overall network infrastructure. We consider the wired network equipment, WLAN infrastructure and ensure that our customers look at all factors before deciding on a VoIP solution.

In some cases, we are able to reduce the number of VoIP handsets required and produce better management and savings on cellular network charges. We do this by implementing a Fixed Mobile Convergence solution that performs the handoff from cellular calls to WiFi and then to the premise based VoIP system.

Fixed Mobile Convergence

Fixed Mobile Convergence supports the objective of full mobility and accessibility anywhere, while presenting the opportunity to manage cellular costs and leverage the corporate IT infrastructure. Supported dual-mode smart phones enable calls to be placed over a cellular network and over premise based IP PBX systems where there is a properly provisioned WLAN network integration with an IP PBX.



Organizations are increasingly adopting LEAN management principles and reviewing their operations in search of increased efficiency, improved services to customers and opportunities to eliminate waste. The primary objective of Lean is to eliminate non-value adding activities to shorten production time and efficiently use limited resources.


IP Surveillance

A lower total cost of ownership: especially where new installations are being considered (not having to install a CCTV network cabling infrastructure in addition to the data network avoids an added CAPEX investment). Selecting IP over CCTV will present new opportunities for surveillance applications and advancements in system features and functionality.


Wireless Networks

With advances in wireless technology over the past few years and particularly with the IEEE 802.11n standard ratified, wireless technology is now capable of even replacing the edge of LAN networks and becoming the primary means of accessing mission critical data, voice and video content and applications.
