What is VoIP?
VoIP is an acronym for Voice over Internet Protocol that describes the method to place and receive phone calls over the internet. Most people consider VoIP the alternative to the local telephone company.
If you’ve heard of an IP address, that’s your Internet Protocol address. An IP address is how computers and devices communicate with each other on the internet.
VoIP isn’t actually all that new. Telephony has relied on digital lines to carry phone calls since the late 90s. VoIP is a cost-effective way to handle an unlimited number of calls.
If you have an internet connection, you call anyone without the need for local phone service. VoIP solutions work on any computer because it’s built upon many years of open standards.
VoIP service providers do more than establishing calls. They perform routing of outgoing and incoming calls through existing telephone networks. Landlines and cell phones depend on the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).
Traditional telephones use analog lines to carry voice signals. If you want to make calls, you have to have extra wiring installed.
Many businesses rely on specialized hardware for phone service. This equipment is known as a Private Branch Exchange (PBX). It connects internal phone extensions to the public telephone network. PBXs are generally quite costly to set up and maintain.
