While it is possible to use a IP based phone system when a few of these requirements are absent, you will have to keep in mind that the quality of the service will drop.
However, in a situation where you are required to use a satellite internet connection, it may be the best option to use a IP based phone system.
When is a satellite connection implemented?
Whether it’s a rural home or rural business, using an IP based phone system may be the only choice for having a phone system at all. It is common that the legacy copper/mobile infrastructure won’t be available to the rural parts of Australia and New Zealand, therefore making it impossible to make or receive phone calls.
Latency over satellite
This latency causes your voice on the call to be delayed and makes it feel like you are talking to someone on the other side of the world, even if they are in the same country.
