What Exactly is VoIP?

What Exactly is VoIP? Voice over IP (Internet Protocol) or VoIP is essentially a type of voice communication that is completed using an Internet Protocol Network like your home Internet connection, or a Local Access Network (LAN) instead of a traditional landline. How Does it Work? VoIP takes your call and translates it into a digital code that travels over the Internet to the receiver. VoIP is available on laptops, desktops, smartphones, tablets, special VoIP phones and traditional phones through a digital adapter, as long as you have an Internet connection. Who is it for? VoIP is a great alternative to traditional phone lines for everyone from individuals and families to businesses, big or small. The best part is, you can take your adapter with you when you travel and use it to make local calls back home without paying costly international long distance rates. Why go VoIP? Benefits include: Save Money - You can generally get the same great phone service at a fraction of the cost of a traditional phone line, especially for long distance calls. Easily Accessible - VoIP goes wherever you go. As long as you have an Internet Connection, simply plug in your adapter and make calls from anywhere. Extra Features - VoIP offers the same services as traditional phone lines, but often with many additional features including video calling, outlook integration, multi-party calling and more. Some things to keep in mind: Power Supply - Modems, routers and other VoIP hardware must have a power source to enable connection to the Internet. Connection Quality - VoIP quality can be affected by factors like your Internet connection, hardware and call destination. It's possible that you may experience delays echoes and other quality issues. If you are looking for a comparable alternative to your traditional phone line and have access to a standard Internet connection, VoIP phone service is the perfect option!
