    Once we understand your needs, npCloud will send you an easy to understand proposal that outlines your configuration along with hardware and costs for implementation.

    Once everything is working properly, we’ll provide comprehensive training to all of your staff and then transfer your phone numbers.

How npTalk Works

With npTalk, you will no longer have a phone server (PBX) in your office. Instead, we’ll host your phone lines and phone server in a secure Tier III data center. Your phones, instead of being hard-wired to your PBX, connect directly to your network using ethernet cables. They use the TCP/IP protocol to communicate over a secure, encrypted, connection with our data center. Other devices, like your laptop, can use software to make the same encrypted connections. Your cell phones can even connect to the system using an application or by calling into the data center.

The result is a highly available system that allows you to make and receive calls from the office, your laptop, or your cellphone. You can configure rules to route calls to one or more devices using our portal. You can even transfer calls to your coworkers no matter where they (or you) are.

Required Network Environment


Although npTalk uses the same protocols as your computers, it is important to keep phones in your office on a separate network. This allows us to guarantee accessibility and performance. Running a separate set of cabling for your computers and phones isn’t an option. Instead, we use a technology called Virtual Local Area Networking, or vLAN. This technology allows the phone to identify themselves as needing a separate virtual network while computers will continue to use the original network without any needed configuration changes. For npTalk, you’ll need switches that support this technology. However, you’ll still only need one ethernet port per desk (our phones will plug into the wall and your computer will plug into the phone). If you use a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch your phones won’t even need to be plugged into a power supply to work. You can bring your own networking switch or we can pre-configure and ship one to you.Also on your phone virtual network will be a dedicated router for the phones. Your phones will receive an IP address from this device along with basic configuration information. Because only your phones can connect with this router you’ll never need to open ports or make any configuration changes. Everything on your existing network will work exactly the same. Our router does require a static IP address, so you’ll need to set up our router in parallel with your existing router. We will provide you with a pre-configured router with your phones.

Required Internet Connection

Since all voice traffic passes over the internet, you’ll need a broadband connection. A T1, unless you are only using it for npTalk, will not be sufficient. Your internet needs will depend on the number of users you have, though generally even the slowest cable or fiber-to-the-building connection will be sufficient. Keep in mind that if your internet connection goes down, so will the phones in your office. However, calls will automatically start forwarding to your cellphone and you can still make calls using the our software from the cafe down the street.
