Frequently Asked Questions
Can we use our existing VoIP Phones?
Our system is compatible with the the vast majority of "VoIP" phones on the market (220+ at last count!), and in many cases this allows us to use your current phones. This can save a lot of money on upgrading your service.
Will I need to install any equipment such as a PBX?
No. Audian's phone system is hosted in the cloud. You only need an internet connection and a business class router. The advantage to you is that we maintain the necessary phone equipment, and as a result all upgrades are applied automatically when they are released ensuring that you have the latest features for your phones.
SIP Trunking customers may need to purchase an ATA such as a Cisco SPA8000 or an Adtran Total Access 9xx Series Device.
