Some businesses and business owners may be holding back on VOIP solutions for several reasons, including simply not knowing enough about VOIP or believing this is a fad and not really going to withstand the test of time and be a long-term option for business phone systems. VOIP isn’t going anywhere, is the future of data transmissions and is a much more affordable solution. VOIP and similar type systems have advanced on to Skype and now Facebook.
Even though landline telephone systems have been the rock in the communications market, the time has come for the old school phones to phase out. VoIP is the first technology to rival traditional phone systems and it is so reliable and affordable that it is believed that VoIP telephony will have completely replaced landlines within this decade, if not sooner.
VOIP More Affordable:
With VoIP, we can have voice communications with anyone for as long as we want. This is because phone calls using VoIP technology are normally free, as long as the person on the other end is also using VoIP. Charges only apply when calls are made from an IP phone to a land line. An IP phone is required at both ends for VoIP to work. The phone is connected to the personal computer or the laptop using a network cable. When voice enters the IP phone, the device converts the data into packets, and transmit the data into the computer system.
Anyone with an Internet connection can make phone calls using VoIP technology. A small investment is required to buy the needed hardware and software. The hardware and software may be provided by the VoIP service provider. VoIP has allowed millions of people all around the world to connect with one another. People from all over the world are starting to use this wonderful technology for work and for leisure. This technology is here to stay.
