VOIP for Business Phone Systems
A Brief discourse on VOIP in modern business telephone systems.
Okay so you hear the term VOIP used from time to time and you know they are talking about telephone systems but that's about it.
Here's what you need to know. VOIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol.
That's it. That's all. But there is a little more.
Another way of thinking about this is - it's your voice traveling over your network cabling (ethernet or Cat5/Cat6) instead of going over traditional telephone wires. There are also 2 places your voice is traveling. One is the internal network or within the walls of your office. Second is the external network or - outside the walls of your business. Some VOIP phone systems can mix and match - you could have VOIP communications inside your office - between the phone system server for a premises based system - and the extension phones. This system might then be connected to the outside world via plain old telephone system (POTS) lines. Or the system could bypass the local telephone company and send your voice using VOIP over your ISP's data network.
Here's where it starts getting pretty cool.
- Having a VOIP system within your office can give you TONS of high powered features. I'm going to direct you to HERE to read about 3CX VOIP Business Phone System features.
- Having a VOIP SIP service for your connection to the outside world can save you a LOT of MONEY. This is because, at least in our market, the telephone company thinks they still have a monopoly on phone service so they continue to charge you a somewhat high amount for your connection. Enter competition in the form of VOIP service providers and lower, competitive prices. Save money every month!
