WHAT IS VOIP?
To put it simply, VoIP is short for Voice over Internet Protocol, which is a technology designed to allow you to make and receive phone calls and video calls over the internet instead of landlines.
The more simplified version of VoIP’s definition is the alternative to the local phone company.
VoIP allows you to call anyone without depending on your local phone company to provide you services. All you need is a sturdy internet connection and a VoIP service provider to handle the calls.
A trusted VoIP provider such as CMC Marketing Agency will handle everything for you. With our help, all that is left for you to do is plug your IP phone in and voila! You’re ready to make your calls. Our digital phones use high-speed internet connection to establish connectivity.
What VoIP does is converting your phone calls into data that is sent over the internet. To use it, you can either use the Ethernet cables or skip them if you have a strong Wi-Fi signal. One of the main advantages of Voice over IP is the fact that it makes making and receiving calls possible at a price much lower than traditional phone services.
HOW DOES VOIP WORK?
As aforementioned, Voice over IP converts your voice into a digital file before compressing it and sending it over the internet. The VoIP service provider sets up your call, just like your internet service provider. Many people decide to switch to Voice over IP from landlines due to lower startup costs. The fact that VoIP helps you make calls using the internet means that you won’t have to pay the long-distance charges as you would with traditional phone services.
Here’s how VoIP works in four steps:
- First, your phone connects to your switch or router in your Local Area Network (LAN).
- As you dial a telephone number, your digital phone tells your VoIP service provider to call the other party.
- Your VoIP service establishes the call and exchanges data packets, which is the way the conversation is exchanged. Using strong internet connection, you can have these data packets sent all over the world in only a second.
- Your VoIP phone will lastly convert these data packets into sounds and words you’ll be able to hear.
Before, you would need to use expensive, proprietary equipment to use VoIP. That’s an old story from 20+ years ago. Nowadays, VoIP is built accordingly to open standards such as Session Initiation protocol (SIP). SIP provides complete interoperability between different desk phones, conference phones, and VoIP apps.
