In this age of the modern technology things seem to change so fast and when looking at what communication systems to use in your Office Space Bracknell way that you found from it can be a little overwhelming There is a bit of rule of thought that says, especially with regards to computers that if it’s in the shops then its obsolete.

The telephone is attributed to be the invention of Alexander Graham Bell although there is some evidence that and Italian aristocrat had the basics in his mansion. Regardless Bells invention was thought to be the great thing that would bring together nations as it would allow people to talk and communicate across the world. It was hoped that conflict would be avoided, and that people would be brought together in ways that they never knew they could. Its probably fair to say that Bell would have guess the extent his invention would take.

Once the telecommunications world was established then the landline was King.  The telephone director, a massive document full of phone numbers (allowing for years of prank calls to people called Shufflebottom) and the Yellow Pages with listing for every trade you could find seem like a dream. The internet has rendered it and Encarta (remember that) useless. Now with a VoIP phone the internet provides the connection. You do not have to worry about roaming charges or line rental. It’s the future for business and domestic use and it’s here and now.
