What is VoIP?
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a type of technology that allows users to make and receive voice calls over an internet connection or other networks that use the IP protocol rather than traditional landlines which are transmitted through terrestrial transmitters. It means that VoIP communicating using the internet protocol instead of traditional analogue systems. VoIP is a more cost-effective solution, not only do you mitigate the need for expensive line rental, but overall call costs are lower too.
How does VoIP work?
VoIP technology is easy to use and doesn’t require any additional equipment. However, it is necessary to have a device connected to the internet. It can be either a computer or a mobile device such as a mobile phone.
The users device must be connected to a VoIP adapter, otherwise known as a VoIP gateway. Most modern mobile phones have this built in. The user just needs to configure the device as an internet connection terminal. In case this is missing, it is required to purchase them separately because the adapter is necessary to change the analogue signal to VoIP data.
If the user wants to make calls from a computer, all they need to do is connect the appropriate accessories and install the communicator on it.
Another option is to buy VoIP communication equipment for example a VoIP telephone.
A necessary element to use VoIP technology is a stable and, above all, high-speed internet, which will ensure that calls are of high quality and trouble-free. This aspect is especially important in the case of companies that massively make or receive calls.
