need rec's for prioritizing bandwidth for new voip system
Posted on 2016-09-15
looking to move to 8x8 or appia (or whoever once i get all the names down) to host our calls in their cloud based pbx systems. we will only have 2 phones in the office.
was told a simple internet line from cable company is all i need to provide and would suffice. but going to talk to cable company about a low latency priority based connection to the office for good call quality (also going to check with at&t on what kind of line they could provide like that). what kind of connection should i try to get?
once i choose my internet connection i need a good router/firewall that i can tell to prioritize traffic going to the 2 phones and not have the laptops, ipads, netflix, etc... steal bandwidth from phones. i feel like i read there are specific firewalls for this, can anyone recommend something?
