Cloud systems are everything you need in one virtually delivered package. With so many advantages to leverage, the only question that remains is “When do we install our new cloudphone system?”
With a cloud phone system, enterprises will also be able to acquire dozens of advanced features through unified communications as a service (UCaaS). UCaaS is essentially a cloud-delivery model that delivers convenient collaboration and communication tools—and integrates with popular applications. Some of the most notable features include the following:
After adopting UCaaS, businesses can attain a simpler, more affordable way to collaborate and communicate — with all of their features under one umbrella.

Though cloud and on-premises systems each have their own strengths, cloud phone systems possess undeniable advantages in these areas.
Also referred to as cloud PBX and virtual PBX, cloud-based phone systems use secure off-site servers, so the need for expensive and bulky on-site hardware is nonexistent. Cloud systems are easily and quickly deployed, since all you really need is power and a strong internet connection.And because TelWare monitors your network and provides regular updates, bringing you advanced performance and security, cloud systems are low stress and low maintenance for IT teams.
TelWare’s virtual PBX phone systems optimize your enterprise’s operations with an array of options:
On-premises phone systems (PBXs) are traditional phone systems that are physically deployed in your office or data center.The advantages of an on-premises system include full control and ownership over your system, as well as quality of service.
On-premises solutions are ideal choices for enterprises with unique settings, specialized configurations, or custom programming to address specific business needs. Your on-site IT staff members manage the system, or you can choose to have TelWare provide managed support.
Benefits of On-Premises Phone Systems
Control –The primary advantage of an on-premises solution is that you are in full control of what happens to your data. If you are an enterprise with privacy concerns, this fact is reassuring.
If desired, you can handle malfunctions internally. However, if your IT team’s time is limited or you are lacking enough technicians, another option is to have TelWare install a remote-access device and monitor the system for you.
Ownership —While on-premises systems are a larger initial cost, your enterprise will fully own the hardware and software licenses you buy, which means nothing leaves your premises. This level of security gives many enterprises peace of mind. And of course, after the upfront purchase, the only continuing expenditures are for upgrades and maintenance.
Security —Government entities,financial industries,and any other enterprises that have highly private information often prefer the level of security that an on-premises (or hybrid) system provides—despite the limitations and cost.
Voice Carrier— You can keep the same carrier when upgrading your on-premises phone system. VoIP trunks can also be added to reduce calling expenditures. On-premises VoIP (often referred to as a hybrid system) can be more affordable than legacy systems because it is software-based instead of hardware-based.
Training— TelWare trainers are happy to provide end-user training for your IT team.
Quality of Service — On-premises solutions don’t rely on the public internet like cloud solutions do, and that’s why they sometimes have better quality of service (QoS).If you can’t accept the occasional hiccup in your system’s QoS, your enterprise may prefer to go with on-premises instead of hosted solutions.
Disaster Recovery—If disaster strikes, on-premises solutions permit fail over to a different site.
Low Long-Term Costs– While on-premises systems have much larger initial costs because you have to pay for the hardware, server, accessories, and installation, the long-term costs can be more affordable than cloud systems if your enterprise has a fairly static number of staff.
Buying, installing,maintaining, and updating your enterprise’s VoIP system is such a time-consuming challenge that many people would prefer to outsource the work to an experienced professional.
And TelWare is happy to oblige by providingtop-notch managed phone services that protect your enterprise from the risk of communications system failures.
