Originally broadband services were mostly used for email and Internet data access. Increasingly broadband is now being used for voice traffic, whether this be of the free form offered by Skype, or paid VOIP services using SIP trunks, analogue terminal adapters (ATAs) and other IP or SIP phones.


We can take you through the important security issues, such as Firewalls and Virus Check Software, and backup arrangements that are needed to ensure safe retrieval of your records in the event of hardware failure, or any other form of computer damage that might occur.
