Hybrid PBX and IP-based Phone Systems
We support a host of major phone systems—from Avaya, NEC, Panasonic to Toshiba— and are a certified Panasonic dealer for both a traditional PBX system,
as well as a true IP-based VoIP system. The beauty of these systems lies in
their very extensive feature set (over 800 features) and their mix-and-match
capabilities. Each system can mix analog, digital and IP phone sets to match
almost any application. Also, each system has extensive functionality
built-in for incorporating branch offices, work-at-home employees and other
We spend a great deal of time understanding all your requirements, so we can select the system and functions that are exactly what you need.
The Phones Become the Network
If you are considering an IP-based telephone system, it is important to
understand these systems are more data systems than phone systems. Unlike a
traditional PBX system, a VoIP system puts a significant burden on your data
network, and requires specific equipment and configuration to ensure
everything is running properly.
Many traditional telephone service companies lack the skills to properly
install and maintain a VoIP system. Andromeda Technology Solutions excels in
all aspects of voice and data, and will ensure you get the system that is
right for you.
Whether Cloud-based, Hosted/virtual PBX, or completely on-premises, we have the knowledge AND experience to guide you and implement your voice communication system to perfection.

Here at Andromeda, we wanted to bring you something a bit different for this month’s telecom blog. See below for a 2 minute video clip on 3 Benefits In Favor Of Upgrading To A VoIP Phone System. (Full transcript below)
Technology and the way we communicate with people has changed leaps and bounds over the last ten years. In business today, staying connected is no longer a luxury but is an expectation to meet goals and drive success.
Why Upgrade To A VoIP Phone System, Voice Over Internet Protocol?
Let’s look at 3 major benefits of upgrading your phone system to VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol).
- Lower overall cost than a traditional phone system – VoIP greatly reduces calling costs. Whether you make long distance/international calls, have multiple locations or make lots of calls locally. VoIP can utilize the internet and new phone services to transport calls while saving you money.
- Mobility – many new voice over internet protocol systems have the ability to integrate with mobile solutions, to provide consistent availability and access no matter where a user is located. What does this mean? Users no longer remain tethered to an office desk phone and become reachable whether they are on the go, remote or outside of the office.
- Feature rich communications – VoIP phone systems allow for a much broader range of features then a traditional phone system provides. For this reason, total cost of ownership is significantly lowered. Features such as integrated fax, voicemail to email, click to call, “find-me-follow-me”, video conference calling as well as user presence remain easily available through feature enhancements rather than hardware add-ons previously required in the past.
If you have been thinking about upgrading your phone system or interested in lowering your business costs, call us. One of our team members can assess your current situation and often times, the phone system and features you are looking for can easily be financed through the cost savings VoIP offers alone.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone systems continue to add new features, integrations and capabilities for business of all sizes and markets.
Cloud technologies allow VoIP phone systems enhanced flexibility and scalability which makes them attractive for business owners and managers.
Each year, new technologies are introduced and in 2019 there are some pretty neat advances in the world of VoIP phone systems.
VoIP Technology for Chicagoland Professionals: New Trends and Topics in 2019
VoIP Phone Systems can help you improve account management and client relationships . . .
Phone systems help you stay connected with your staff, vendors and clients. You pick up the phone, hear a dial tone, type in a code and connect. But what else could you get from your phone system? What other features are out there?
Call Analytics: There are many data points you can assess using call analytics and your VoIP phone system. Get insights into average call length, call counts, and even staff availability. You can see what teammates tend to miss calls more often, what times of day calls are missed, what times of day call volumes peak and more.
Dialer: a dialer can give your sales and marketing team a big productivity boost. This also cuts down on misdials and will increase call volume in most cases.
CRM Integration: in 2019 we expect that more and more VoIP providers will expand integration options with popular CRM solutions. This will connect your data, your dialer and your CRM (customer relationship management). Integration is something you want to consider when choosing the solution for your business.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology will expand into new places
AI is exciting and opens up possibilities for many technologies and systems including your VoIP phones. AI is very good at automating tasks, segmenting data and even analyzing certain sets of data. Some of the ways this is anticipated to expand in 2019:
Customer Satisfaction Analysis: As AI continues to get more powerful, VoIP phone systems with call recording enabled could see benefit for customer satisfaction purposes. AI can detect moods based on speech patterns. This data will be invaluable once these solutions hit the market.
AI Enabled Translators: For businesses with global needs, AI translators are anticipated to assist with conference calls and translation in real time.
Enhanced Interactive Voice Response & Auto Attendant: AI is changing the way Auto-Attendants and virtual receptionists work. Instead of a static program, AI allows callers to ask questions and interact with systems with a goal of routing calls quickly and to the appropriate destination without a full time receptionist managing inbound calls.
Expansion of 5G service will increase call speed, quality and capabilities
While 5G service is available to certain areas and businesses already, this technology is not readily available all over the United States just yet. That said, as service providers invest in infrastructure, 5G will come to an area near you. When it does you will notice improvements to the functionality of your system (most likely). After all, a cloud based VoIP phone system operates over your internet connection. So, the stronger and faster your service is (5G vs. 4G), the better your experience will be. Look forward to fewer dropped calls, better call quality and decrease in service interruptions as 5G becomes available near you.
As always, it must be said that most or all of these functions/capabilities will be available and applicable for on-prem phone solutions, digital solutions and modern PBX phone systems.

Intel has been in the news several times over the last 18 months due to serious security flaws that have been found in their chipsets, beginning with the dreaded Spectre and Meltdown flaws.� Now with MDS attacks, they're not the only ones.�Recently, researchers have discovered serious flaws in Cisco products that would allow a determined hacker the ability to attack a wide range of devices.
These would be devices used by businesses and government agencies, including routers, switches and firewalls. The new vulnerability is being tracked as CVE-2019-1649, and has been dubbed 'Thrangrycat' by researchers from Red Balloon Security, who first discovered it.
The research team had this to say about the vulnerability:
"An attacker with root privileges on the device can modify the contents of the FPGA anchor bitstream, which is stored unprotected in flash memory.� Elements of this bitstream can be modified to disable critical functionality in the Trust Anchor module (Tam).
Successful modification of the bitstream is persistent, and the Trust Anchor will be disabled in subsequent boot sequences.� It is also possible to lock out any software updates to the Tam's bitstream."
Ominously, the research team added the following note:
"By chaining the Thrangrycat and remote command injection vulnerabilities, and attacker can remotely and persistently bypass Cisco's secure boot mechanism and lock out all future software updates to the Tam.� Since the flaws reside within the hardware design, it is unlikely that any software security patch will fully resolve the fundamental security vulnerability."
Even so, we can expect Cisco to do something along those lines to at least blunt the risk, and they're no doubt already looking at the hardware architecture to find a solution going forward.� To this point, the company notes that they've not detected any attacks exploiting these vulnerabilities, but now that the research has been made public, that may change.
