How is Call Quality Ensured?
Mitel MiCloud Connect can be delivered two ways, both of which ensure call quality.
First, if your business wants to lock down security and remove any trace chance of jitter or loss of quality, Mitel can deliver the service over a private data T-1, not even touching the open internet. This does of course increase the monthly costs because instead of using the existing data connections, the business is adding a data T-1, however it does ensure quality and security.
The second option is to enable SDWAN technology to create an environment within the existing data connection which will protect call quality. As an example, think of your data connection as a highway. When the road becomes congested, traffic slows down; this can cause delayed email, slow internet, and calls that sounds choppy or generally low quailty. SDWAN creates a reserved lane for voice, so if traffic picks up, the dedicated voice channel enables, protecting the voice quality. SDWAN is surprisingly affordable and many organizations choose to use the product simply as an insurance against poor voice quality caused by slow data connections.
Both of these options are a solid choice, but offer slightly different advantages over each other. CSM is happy to discuss them in greater detail with our clients in order to determine which option is the best for your business when you are looking to deploy a new cloud based phone system.
