Many times I get asked, what is VoIP phone Service? VoIP is an acronym for Voice over Internet Protocol or it can be described as a way to make phone calls using the Internet. The internet carries digital data, and on the other hand, voice is an analog signal. That’s why voice needs to be converted into a digital form before sending it over the internet.
So why would you want to use VoIP Phone Service instead of traditional analog service? One of the main reasons to switch to VoIP Phone Service is the ability to reduce your costs. Since VoIP utilizes the internet, there are cost savings which can be utilized by the phone companies. These cost savings are passed on to the customer. Remember in 1993, the average long distance rate was around 12 cents. A little more than two decades later, VoIP Phone Service is around 3 cents per minute or less based on the provider.
Also, with VoIP Phone Service you can manage most of the advanced features in a web browser. In the past, you needed special skill sets in order to manage your business phones and phone lines. Today that is not the case. A person with general training could easily manage your telecommunications platform right from their desktop.
Helping VoIP service to grow is the influx of devices manufactured for the purpose of VoIP. IP Phone Systems and Hosted PBX are gaining popularity based on the benefits of this new technology. Since VoIP Phone Service is fairly still new, sometimes you can experience quality issues in its service. As new VoIP technology and VoIP Phone Service continues to evolve, these issues will get better and better.
VoIP Phone Service can provide many advanced features as well. These can include video conferencing, desktop sharing, and presence management which traditional phone systems can never achieve. VOIP Phone Service is the future of the telecommunication industry because it can offer value and affordability at the same time.
