VoIP vs. Digital
Thirty five years ago, the entire business and residential telecommunications industry was analog; Two wires – one red, one green, with barebones features. We called it ‘Tip & Ring’. Business owners and residential customers had no choice but to rent their equipment and phone service from AT&T, whose industry dominance allowed them to dictate what their customers used and where they got it. It also gave AT&T no incentive to develop new technologies. That all changed in 1982, when Judge Harold H. Green, of the US District Court for DC, put an end to AT&T’s dominance by breaking it into eight regional companies set up across the country. These “Baby Bells” finally gave customers the option of owning their own systems. Just as important, it spurred a massive wave of innovation that the industry had not seen under AT&T. In the years that followed, technology doubled each year as demand for better, faster, more feature-rich telephones grew. And everything went digital.
Digital technologies allowed for seemingly unlimited possibilities in telecommunications. One of the biggest developments has been the emergence of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). Most of the advancements in the industry today are taking place in the VoIP environment, making this relatively new technology the best choice for most business applications.
As an exclusive Mitel partner, American Telecom Solutions is at the forefront of the VoIP movement. ATS can provide other Mitel digital systems as well, with a solution for every telecommunication need. We even have solutions for pushing VoIP phones through the old ‘Tip & Ring’ wires if your current cabling is not data-ready.
Call 1-888-778-3526 today, and have American Telecom Solutions show you how you can benefit from VoIP and the Mitel system.
The MiVoice Office 250 phone system is an affordable and flexible communication platform for small to mid-size businesses.
Mitel MiVoice Business is a highly scalable, proven business communication platform that delivers voice, unified messaging, mobility, presence, conferencing, collaboration, applications, and more.
The breakup of AT&T in 1982 allowed business and residential customers to purchase their own equipment rather than pay the inflated costs of renting from the only provider in the industry. Today, with the availability of Cloud-based systems, we have now, it seems, come full-circle. For some customers, Cloud-based (or ‘Hosted’) systems give them the best of both worlds; all the benefits and features of VoIP phones without having to purchase the equipment. The decision between premise-based (owned) and Cloud-based systems is based on several factors, including the size of your business, your budgetary strategies, and your building arrangements.
American Telecom Solutions offers three different Cloud-based solutions, ensuring a solution to our clients’ individual needs. All of our Cloud-based solutions employ Mitel handsets and are robust enough to meet your needs both today and in the future. ATS takes a consultative approach in educating our customers on the merits of Cloud-based vs. Premise-based systems, giving you the tools and knowledge to make an educated decision. Call 1-888-778-3526 today to find out if a Cloud-based system is the right option for you.

Sound Masking Solutions
Minimize Distractions • Increase Productivity • Protect Sensitive Conversation
In today’s open office environment, it can be very difficult for an employee to remain focused on their own goals with others’ conversations competing for their concentration. And today more than ever, privacy is very much a necessity, particularly for attorneys, doctors’ offices (HIPAA compliance) or any other business where protecting sensitive customer information is a challenge.
American Telecom Solutions, through our partnership with AtlasIED, a world leader in speech privacy technology, offers a full array of sound masking solutions that can be deployed in any installation where speech privacy is critical.
A sound masking system emits low-level, non-distracting masking noise specifically tuned and designed to reduce ambient speech and thereby improve speech privacy. This improvement in speech privacy can be of great value in open-plan offices, doctors’ examination rooms and other environments where confidentiality is important.
Depending on the intensity of the noise, Sound Masking can also reduce the distraction caused by traffic, office machinery and other unwanted sounds.
Contact American Telecom Solutions today to learn how we can help minimize office distractions and protect the privacy of your customers and employees.
