Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) involves the transmission of voice communications and multimedia sessions over the Internet, local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). This technology provides equipment that hooks directly into your existing broadband network, allowing you to make voice calls to landlines or mobile phones using your Internet connection instead of a regular phone line.
With Voiceover IP, you can still call a landline or mobile phone, but you’ll be using your internet connection to do so, rather than a phone line connection. This can represent a solid alternative and can work out to be fairly cost effective.
VoIP has emerged as a popular alternative to a copper home phone line amid the rollout of high-speed fixed line broadband, Wi-Fi and mobile 4G, along with the rapid adoption of the smartphone. High speed internet access is virtually wherever we go and has enabled a whole new communications boom.
EZ Cabling Solutions has an affordable and reliable VoIP installation tailored to your specific needs. Using VoIP has several business advantages, including:
With VoIP, there is no purchasing or maintenance of traditional analog phones. Since calls are made over the Internet, you save on fees for long-distance and international calling. Also, by bundling your phone and internet services you lower your monthly cost.
VoIP phones have helpful features such as e-mail-based voice mail, where e-mail messages are sent as audio files, so you no longer have to call the office to retrieve voice mail messages. VOIP enables users to integrate software programs, such as e-mail and remote conferencing over the Internet via the telephone. You can simultaneously speak on the phone while accessing a host of other features and applications.
With a VoIP solution, remote workers can depend on reliable communications. As long as there’s an internet connection they will have the same high-quality, phone service as with an analog line at the office. This is essential for individuals who are on the move and for geographically dispersed teams to collaborate effectively when traveling or working from home.
