Buying and installing a whole new business VoIP phone system surely needs to be planned for. So, what can you do to keep your business phone system running for as long as possible? Here are a few tips to keep your phone system in best condition, for as long as possible.
Upgrading your phone system. Some systems allow phones or components to be upgraded to work at a higher level. However, some phone equipment, there is only so much you can do to extend its life, due to the manufacturers decision to discontinue the supply and support of their products. Since every piece of tech equipment has a lifespan, it is important to have a plan in case for when replacements are necessary.
Protect your phone system’s power source: This requires you to plug your phone into an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). A UPS will stop surges and power dips from impacting your equipment. This is very important because power supplies on older systems are especially susceptible to damage from power fluctuations. Providing protection will expand the life of your power supply.
Provide proper environment for your equipment: Keeping the room too hot or too cold can damagingly affect system performance. Manufacturers provide recommendations on what temperatures are best for their equipment.
Keeping your equipment as clean as possible: Dust and dirt can build up on components that can cause issues. Water can also be extremely damaging to phone systems. Keep in mind that phones can not only suffer from issues due to pop or coffee spills, but also from makeup-buildup or oils from your skin. Occasionally cleaning your handset helps the user to hear and be heard.
