The premise is simple: Instead of using the existing telephone lines in your building, or having new ones installed, you push all of your voice, teleconferencing, and video traffic through the Internet.
What do you get with VoIP?
For starters, advanced features, lowered costs and anywhere/anytime access
- Lower cost. VoIP providers can offer more competitive pricing as providers don’t have to pay costly interconnection charges to another company’s network.
- Data and voice integration. VoIP phones come with useful features such as e-mail-based voice mail, where your messages are sent to you as audio files in your e-mail. You no longer have to call the office to retrieve your voice mail messages.
- Mobility. You can take your VoIP phone number with you anywhere in the world. This is especially handy for geographically dispersed teams, who can now avoid international phone rates by using VoIP phones with phone numbers in the same area code.
How does it work?
VoIP uses the internet to make and receive calls — bypassing the traditional setup altogether.
VoIP needs a good Internet connection to work well, so making sure you have high bandwidth can help. Still, when you don’t have to worry about competing traffic, the quality of a VoIP call can surpass an analog one.
A VoIP business communications solution can be on-premises or cloud-based. When running VoIP over your private network, the data is as secure as any other application running on your business system.
Why should you care?
VoIP provides cost savings, flexibility, and operations transparency. With this technology as your business backbone, you can focus on revenue and growth.
