What are remote phone systems?

Remote phone systems allow employees to work remotely, on the go, or in a hybrid environment (a combination of on-premises and remote) and still leverage a wide range of calling features, as long as they have an internet connection.


Vonage’s “work from anywhere” features let employees take their deskphone away from the office, plug into high-speed internet, and get the system functionality and full business phone system experience they expect — anywhere.
