Answers to frequently asked questions about VOIP
What is VoIP?
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that enables voice transmissions to travel over the Internet rather than over traditional phone lines. Speech is converted to packets of voice data which are sent over a broadband internet connection to another phone where the stream of voice data is reassembled into its original form.
How do you make calls over a VoIP connection?
The same way you would with an ordinary telephone. The only difference is that you use an IP phone that is plugged into an Ethernet connection instead of a phone jack because the call is made digitally over the internet.
What are the benefits of VoIP?
VoIP is much less expensive than traditional phone service, especially in cases of heavy long distance or international calling. It is also far more versatile than analog telephony with features such as voicemail-to-email, find-me/follow-me and simultaneous ring that can be managed from an online interface.
