VoIP technology or Internet telephony converts voice vibrations to compressed digital signals that translate to Internet Protocol (IP) packets.
VoIP does more than increase savings by lowering costs. It also allows users to integrate software programs, such as e-fax, e-mail, and remote conferencing over the Internet via the telephone.
A VoIP user can speak to somebody over the phone while accessing other applications, including the Internet simultaneously, allowing employees to multi-task without interruption.
With VoIP, businesses no longer have to maintain separate networks for phones and data. VoIP systems allows businesses to do things that are simply not possible with traditional phone technology. For example, users can:
- Take their phone system with them as long as they have access to a broadband connection.
- Talk on their laptop as VoIP enables users to send and receive calls using a headphone/microphone unit connected to their computers.
- Get virtual phone numbers.
- Configure simultaneous ring on multiple devices before going to voice mail, eliminating “phone tag.”
