What is VoIP?

VoIP means Voice over Internet Protocol. It is also referred to as IP telephony, telecommunication and voice communication.

VoIP allows you to make very low cost calls over the internet. There's no longer a need for copper wires and handsets! With VoIP you can make phone calls anytime, anywhere using the internet and a headset. VoIp turns your voice into a digital signal, allowing you to makes calls from any data-drive device. Using VoIP means that you can carry over a lot more data, enhancing your communication methods.

VoIP gives you access to a lot of features that you may not of necessarily had before like voicemail, voicemail emails sent to you, music on hold, and call diverts etc. 

How does VoIP work?

In simple terms, VoIP passes your voice through your router rather than down your phone line. All of this is done at incredible speed, and the great thing is, whether the other person is using VoIP or your traditional phone system, the data is transferred back into recognisable speech, often through a private branch exchange system (PBX).

  • Cost
  • Only needs an internet connection
