Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is used to deliver voice
communication over an IP data network, either on the Internet or
your own internal network. To do so it converts the analog voice signals
into digital data packets that can be transmitted through IP networks. This way
VoIP supports the real-time, two-way transmission of conversations.
Nowadays VoIP is available on most communication devices, such as: PCs, tablets,
Benefits of using VoIP instead of PSTN:
VoIP handles media types other than voice e.g.: you can transfer
images, video and text along with the voice.
VoIP is flexible with the network layout, because the underlying
network does not need to be of a practicular layout or topology.
Because of the compression of data packets during transmission,
more calls can be handled on one access line.
VoIP provides some extra features, such as: Caller ID, Contact
List, Voicemail, Call Forwarding,... etc.
Depending on the VoIP provider you use, your calls may cost much
less, or in case you are using Skype or other similar software your
call can be cost free.
These are the advantages of using VoIP, so it's no wonder more and more businesses
are adopting it to their Phone Systems to exploit it's benefits. A great example
is the OZEKI Phone System XE
which is a VoIP based PBX system.
