VoIP is important because, for the first time in more than 100 years, there is an opportunity to bring about significant change in the way that people communicate.
VoIP allows something else: the ability to use a single high-speed Internet connection for all voice, video, and data communications.
What are the benefits of IP telephony?
The primary advantage is that IP telephony takes advantage of newer technology which is more efficient from a cost and technical perspective. For end users it allows you to run voice services over one shared service (running voice, data and video) versus buying multiple services and circuits from service providers.
How does Voice over IP work?
VoIP is the technology that converts your voice into a digital signal, allowing you to make a call directly from a computer, a VoIP phone, or other data-driven devices. You may also hear it referred to as IP telephony, internet telephony, broadband telephony, or broadband phone service.
What are the features of VoIP a business can benefit from?
As well as enhancements on standard phone functions (such as the ability to put callers on hold or transfer calls), VoIP systems also offer the ability to have voice messages sent to email inboxes, route calls intelligently, call multiple phones at once until someone picks up, or organize group calls.
Why is VoIP used at work?
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a type of technology that allows its users to make calls using the broadband Internet rather than the conventional or analog phone system. VoIP works by converting sound into digital voice communication and then transferring it through Internet broadband.
