What is VoIP?

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), is primarily a phone system that uses the Internet rather than landlines to carry phone signals and data. When you talk on a VoIP phone, sound is converted into digital packages and are then transferred online. And instead of plugging into a traditional phone jack, the phone line goes into the VoIP adapter which plugs into your computer. There a few different VoIP options to learn about before deciding which is best for your business (Read our article, How VoIP can be the perfect solution for Small and Medium Businesses, to find out more). Overall, switching from a traditional phone line to a VoIP phone system most often means financial savings, increased functionality and flexibility, and more effective communication both internally and externally, just to name a few benefits.
