Service

Great mobile service

You're probably wondering how this all works. VoIP can be a bit scary, should we really put all our faith in the internet? I mean the internet never goes down, does it?

Our technical team has designed a platform located in a secure and redundant Tier 3 Data centre. It's here in Canada which means all your data stays housed north of the 49th parallel. The built in redundancies and back-ups at our facility means you don't need to worry about how the technology works and can focus instead on how it makes your business work.

We'll be with you to help decide how to get the applications from our place to yours and whether that's public or private cloud, the end product and price for the services stays the same.

1. AltiSphere Data Centre

The data centre houses the AltiSphere infrastructure, voice applications, IM/Presence, desktop control, mobility, work group and call centre applications.

2. Internet

This can be public internet, a private cloud, MPLS or a wireless service.

3. AltiSphere Client

AltiSphere can be utilized on a desk phone, smart phone, tablet, desktop or laptop computer.

We're pretty excited to be able to bring all these applications to you for an amazing ratio of cost to features. $30 per month per user includes just about everything you'll need to get started. We don't do "add on" features and just want to make this easy for you. Additional applications can be purchased (and there are only 2 or 3) if your business needs them, most of our customers are happy with the basic package.

Testimonials

Don't take our word for it! Hear directly from our clients on how AltiSphere has become their feature rich and very affordable, hosted phone service.
