As internet connections and networking have improved around the globe, more companies, especially small and midsize businesses, are massively turning to VoIP technology that helps fuel the business success. The VoIP technology hits all their pain points – it lowers costs, increases flexibility and user mobility, and provides a wealth of business-enhancing features like instant messaging, conference calls, voice mail and fax mail, and easy integration with other business systems, etc.
Why can VoIP be so versatile? What is the difference between VoIP and the traditional landline?
VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It is a methodology and group of technologies for the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, such as the Internet.
VoIP converts your voice into a digital signal, allowing you to make a call directly from a computer, a VoIP phone, or other data-driven devices. Simply put, it’s phone service delivered over the public Internet, rather than via the public switched telephone network (PSTN).
