An ingenious purpose-built IP architecture makes our on-premise business VoIP phone system look and behave like a single, unified platform. It distributes the system’s intelligence across the communications environment so the system scales and grows as needed, across sites, or even countries. With ShoreTel Director, an intuitive browser-based administrative interface, IT staff can maintain the system from anywhere on the network. It all comes together with plug-and-play ease, from the full line of Shoretel IP voice switches and IP phones that are ready to go as soon as they’re plugged in, to the online directory that updates dynamically.
The business VoIP phone system's distributed architecture and applications, and its N+1 redundancy help provide five-nines availability for mission-critical business continuity. The switch-based hardware platformhelps ensure that in the event of a WAN failure, the phone system continues to place and receive calls on the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).
