Owning and operating a business is full of important decisions. Unfortunately, sometimes the overload of decisions can tempt us to stick our heads in the sand. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” applies to owners of 3Com NBX phone systems. Many businesses are still using an outdated 3Com NBX as their business phone system. The NBX has proven to be a reliable and well-engineered product, especially considering its ground-breaking nature.
However, this technology and the company who sold it, are now part of high-tech history.
HP purchased 3Com in November 2009 and stopped offering support for the 3Com NBX in July 2012. Those still using the system rely solely on the expertise of their local NBX reseller to provide spare parts and continued support. So, organizations who continue to utilize an NBX are in a very nebulous situation.
Are You Ready for a New Business Phone System?
If any of the following statements apply to you, it’s time to consider upgrading:
- You don’t feel comfortable trusting your company’s communications to obsolete technology and no manufacturer support
- You are tired of seeing your phone bill creeping up each quarter for the same service you have had for ten years or more
- You want the cost-saving benefits of VoIP
- You are ready for the communications and productivity gains that a modern communication solution can provide
Making the switch to business VoIP is no longer daunting. Plus, these days you have more choices. You can either replace your business phone system with a new system or move to a Virtual PBX that eliminates ownership woes altogether. A quality reseller can make the conversion process simple and deliver a seamless SIP Trunking implementation with little or no negative impact upon your business. You have so many decisions to make as a business operator; this one should be an easy one.
