What is a VoIP phone service?
If you’re up to speed with the terminology, feel free to skip ahead. If you need VoIP 101, keep reading.
VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It’s the technology that lets you make and receive phone calls over the Internet instead of a traditional phone network.
VoIP phone services are offered by dedicated VoIP providers or unified communications platforms. In the latter case, VoIP services are built-in as a part of a cloud-based unified communications (UCaaS) platform, which you can use to manage all your phone calls and other communications centrally on different devices.
As well as being significantly cheaper than landlines, VoIP lets you connect from anywhere via mobile devices or desktops with a high-speed Internet connection.
Voice over IP also gives you advanced features that aren’t always possible with a standard telephone service—such as call recording, caller ID, real-time transcriptions, easily customizable voicemail greetings, and more.
How does a VoIP phone system work?
VoIP is a broad term for telephony technologies that enable voice calls over the Internet instead of using regular phone lines.
Think of your voice as an analog signal. but VoIP converts this into a digital format (called a “packet”) that can transmitted over an IP network. An IP or Internet protocol address is what computers use to communicate with one another on the Internet.
Once the call is connected, VoIP converts the packets back into analog signals so
they can receive by the phone of the person So you’ve called (if you want to get technical, the analog signals are encoded and decoded using software called a codec).
