Voice over IP delivers major improvements to traditional communication networks, and as a result legacy analog phone systems are on their way out. Ten years ago, 80% of homes had landlines, but today that number is down to 43%— and businesses are following this trend as well. However much VoIP is becoming the go-to technology for communications, it is important to acknowledge that certain markets cannot fully convert to a total VoIP solution. Not recognizing this could lead to loss in potential sales against competitors. In these situations a hybrid VoIP network can help deliver the flexibility and power of an IP solution while catering to the restraints of your customer. Below are some of the most common situations and their solutions.
As more businesses rely on the Internet to fuel their networks, adding extra layers of protection to secure these networks is essential. That’s where VPNs come in— they’re private networks that help encrypt information exchanged through the Internet, ultimately safeguarding your entire network and everything connected to it.

Thankfully, with the right security practices, keeping your VoIP network safe and protected doesn’t have to be messy. Today, I am going to list the most effective ways to keep your VoIP network secured and how you can apply these best practices to your own communication hub.
