Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a protocol that enables transmission of speech over the internet or other IP packet-switched networks.
VoIP converts the voice signal from a telephone into a digital signal that travels over the IP Network, then converts it back at the other end. Now widely accepted, VoIP technology is being rapidly installed and is now a core part of all new telephone systems.
VoIP is undoubtedly the future of telephony, now offering capability, flexibility, quality and resilience that are a far cry from the limitations of earlier systems.
Many features and advantages make it the ideal business solution:
VoIP provides a lower cost alternative to the traditional networks Call costs for businesses, systems are substantially lower than ISDN, VoIP is scalable on an individual channel basis and extra phones can be added without additional telephone cabling.
For multi-site organisations all internal phones can be on the same network, so calls between sites within the organisation are free.
Number portability is assured and simple, even when moving long distance.
Conference calling, call forwarding and caller ID are all low-cost or free features.
Integration with other services such as voicemail to email.
VoIP technology has now matured to offer comparable if not more dependability than traditional ISDN type services.
This, combined with low lifetime cost is presenting decision makers with a compelling business case.
