How to get VoIP for your Business
What is VoIP?
VoIP is the acronym for Voice over Internet Protocol. Basically, instead of using a traditional landline to communicate over the telephone, it uses an internet connection. This means that, rather than using the copper wire provided by your phone company (and paying your bill directly to them), your phone calls are incorporated into your internet service with your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
How does VoIP work?
VoIP passes data back and forth between the callers and receivers IP addresses using high speed internet. Voice signals are transferred into data that are then transmitted back and forth between the IP addresses of both caller and receiver. VoIP can carry a lot more data than a traditional landline, and works at much higher speeds.
Benefits of VoIP for your business
Because you no longer need to hire a landline through a phone company and pay their rates for each phone call you make, the saving of a VoIP network are its major benefit. This type of communication can dramatically reduce the cost of calling local, long distance, and even international phone calls.
