Whatever You Are Paying for Phone Service, It’s Too Much

Based on actual client installations, DSX VOICE reduces phone bills by as much as 60%

The Old Model

Telephone companies make their profits through oversubscription.  In a given community they run physical lines from their central office switch to every building and charged a fixed priced for each of those lines. Their profit is the difference between the amount they charge for the total number of lines and the cost they incur to connect the few lines actually in use at any given moment.  They exploit the fact that the probability of every line being in use simultaneously is nearly zero.

A conventional office PBX is essentially the same.  You have a fixed number of outside lines coming into to it, which you pay for, and maybe three or four times that number of extensions connected to the PBX.  Even with many more extensions than outside lines, only a fraction of the outside lines are ever in use simultaneously.

The Internet Difference

Internet-based phone service, called Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) operates differently.  It uses the Internet to carry calls between an office and the VoIP service provider.  The VoIP service provider connects the VoIP PBX to the public telephone system.

When using a VoIP PBX, the number of users or extensions has little to do with the cost of making phone calls. The number of connections to the public telephone system determines the number of simultaneous calls that the system can handle. This is where the true cost lies.

When a VoIP provider charges based on the number of users or extensions, they’re making a bet that only a small fraction of those extensions will be in use simultaneously – a bet they will always win.


The DSX Model

At DSX VOICE we take a completely different approach.  Our pricing is based on the capacity you need and how you use your phones, not on the number of people, extensions or “lines”.  We calculate your capacity requirement by looking at three factors:

  • What your company does – are you a sales organization that is phone intensive, or a manufacturer that is a light phone user
  • The number of people you have – not only the people in your main location, but also in any other locations around the country or even around the world
  • Your usage profile – how are your phones used, for what, and how often

This let’s us configure the size of the system you need and also estimate the number of simultaneous calls you’re likely to require, which is the critical variable and the reason why we never use simpleminded schemes like charging per user or per extension.  At DSX VOICE we pass the oversubscription savings advantage on to you – that’s what makes us different.
