Components of VoIP as a Service (VaaS)
Listed below are the various components required for a hosted ‘VoIP as a Service’ solution.
1. Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)
SIP is the IP protocol used to transport voice traffic over an IP network thus allowing users to make voice and video calls mostly for free over the Internet or a private network. This protocol is used by the VoIP phones to communicate to the IP PBX for call registration and call setup/call teardown.
You may notice that many VoIP devices such as a VoIP phone are also called a SIP phone. The term VoIP and SIP do tend to be used interchangeably to describe the phones/handset.
2. Real Time Protocol (RTP)
RTP is the protocol that is used to transport the actual voice data over the network and works hand-in-hand with SIP that is used to register the phones and setup/tear down the calls
3. SIP Phone (aka VoIP Phone)
The SIP phone is the physical phone that sits on the users desk. Rather than connecting to the legacy BT wall socket it instead connects to the LAN switch. When booted up, the SIP phone uses the SIP protocol to register it’s number with the cloud PBX and confirm it is online for calls.
There is a huge selection of SIP phones on the market today. At present we recommend the Cisco SIP phone range as they are extremely stable and offer excellent call quality and user overall experience.
4. SIP Client (aka Soft Phone Client)
A SIP client is available for locations that do not require a physical phone. This is SIP software that runs on a PC or Mac to simulate a phone allowing inbound/outbound calls and all the same additional features possible with a physical phone handset.
Most users still prefer a physical phone but for hot-desking or locations that are hardly used then a soft phone client is an excellent choice.
5. Local Area Network (LAN)
You can simply plug in your new VoIP phones into your LAN switch and away you go. Ideally your LAN switches will have 2 features to get the best out of your VoIP service.
Using ‘managed’ switches rather than ‘un-managed’ switches can allow the LAN infrastructure to be configured to prioritise voice and video traffic using Class of Service (CoS). We can fully assist you with this aspect should you need.
The PoE (Power over Ethernet) feature allows your VoIP phones to obtain power from the LAN network cable rather than needing an additional power supply. This is an excellent feature that we recommend your current and future switches support.
6. Wide Area Network (WAN)
Each of your sites should have a good connection to the Public Internet or a Private MPLS network (more on this later) to ensure enough bandwidth for your voice and video conferencing traffic.
Your network provider should configure Quality of Service (QoS) on the WAN router to prioritise the voice and video traffic as it exits the router. We perform this by default for all our customers.
7. VoIP Cloud Provider
The VoIP Cloud Provider hosts the VoIP equipment on their own network and are responsible for the management and support of the entire VoIP platform. If there are any issues you would report them to the provider rather than troubleshoot yourself. You are responsible only for simple admin tasks and provisioning orders for new services/phones via the providers portal.
8. VoIP PBX
Your SIP Phones or SIP clients register with the Cloud Provider’s VoIP PBX to obtain their number and the establishment of all calls is via the Cloud Providers platform.
Models of VoIP as a Service
There are two main models of VoIP as a Service to consider depending on your business needs:
1. Public Internet VaaS
Businesses who make mostly external voice and video calls rather than site-to-site should consider this model as it is quick to provision and has all the features you will need.
2. Private Network VaaS
If your company has multiple sites that will communicate between each other for voice and video, then a cloud hosted VoIP solution on a private MPLS network is highly recommended. All of your companies site-to-site calls and video conferencing data traverses a private high speed MPLS network rather than using the Public Internet which allows for better overall voice and video performance, monitoring and enhanced SLA’s.
VoIP as a Service (VaaS) is the way forward for businesses to enjoy reduced call costs, increased flexibility, scalability, simplified management plus additional call features such as chat and video conferencing.
Understanding VoIP as a Service is an important first step towards making a more informed decision for your future voice requirements.

How to Choose the Right Business Phone System?
- What are your business needs? Does your business need a phone system that includes desk telephones? or Does your business need a virtual phone service using mobile devices?
- If your business needs desk telephones, you can choose between a traditional landline telephone service or a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system, which runs over the internet.
- If you choose VoIP for your business, do you want to house the system at your business (on-premises) or have your service provider host it (cloud-based)?
Q: Why choose an XRX phone system?
A: Our phones are feature-rich and budget-conscious so you can configure the right system for your business. Our phones include mass deployment support, auto firmware upgrade and configuration, and a web interface for local/manual configuration.
Q: Which phone system is best for flexible work arrangements?
A: VoIP technology is ideal for remote workers and flexible work arrangements, ensuring employees can be reached at all times. It provides the added benefits of staying connected, utilising the full functionality of their desk phones through smartphone applications, while keeping their personal phone numbers private.
Q: Is the sound quality on a VoIP system as good as on a landline?
A: Technology has come a long way making it difficult to detect the difference between internet-based calls and landline calls.
Q: How are unified communications systems different from a phone system?
A: Many of today's phone systems are unified communications systems. These systems combine voice calling, messaging, and video or online meetings into one service. They also offer audio conferencing and online faxing.
Q: Which Phone system is better for a business with multiple locations?
A: While both on-premises and hosted systems can support businesses with multiple locations, a cloud-hosted solution can simplify things. Cloud-hosted systems can be managed from one online platform and can be cost-effective for your business as they don't require you to install complex PBX equipment inside each location.
Q: What do I need to do to set up a VoIP System?
A: We recommend you plan your data network to ensure you have enough bandwidth to handle your call volume. Setting up your network to prioritise voice calls will help ensure your call quality is clear and strong.
