In this Electronic era, everyone should know about the latest technologies. As these technologies are for our comforts. Now I am going to talk on one of the advanced technology called as VOIP.
VOIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It is an advanced technology through which you can make telephone calls over a data network like Internet. It works by converting your voice signal into a digital signal that can be transmitted over the Internet and then it again converted into a voice signal to hear by the destination. So through hosted VOIP, one can call from the internet connection to any other place either to anyones computer having internet connection, same as you, or to any mobile or landline telephone.
What are the things you require to make a VOIP call?
Internet connection is the most important requirement from where you will make a call. To talk and hear the voice, a hardware component is needed, that is, any inexpensive microphone that can hook up to your computer or can connect a phone directly to a VoIP telephone adaptor (ATA). You can also use a SIP phone. This is a phone specially made for Internet Voice. SIP phones are full of advanced features like voice mail to e-mail and auto attendant.
Advantages of using VOIP phone service
VOIP phone service offers many advantages but following are the list of some advantages:
Cheap Call Rates The major advantage of VOIP is that it offers cheap call rates. If you have a broadband internet connection in your computer then you can make PC-to-PC phone calls anywhere in the world absolutely free of cost. And if you want to make a call from PC to any mobile or phone connection then there is a minor charge for it but it is much cheaper than the regular phone call rate.
Cost Saving VOIP gives you extra cost savings. The reason behind this is that VOIP service providers do not need extra cost for its maintenance. They simply used already exist network, that is, the Internet. Moreover, VOIP service providers are not categorized as a phone company by the government. So it saves from paying extra tax like other phone companies need to pay.
More Portable This is the unique advantage of VOIP that you can receive and make phone calls from anywhere, there has internet connection. You just need to sign in your VOIP account.
Enhanced Features There are many other features that make VOIP attractive. The virtual phone system (Virtual PBX) is the most enhanced feature of VOIP. Call waiting, Call forwarding, voicemail, caller ID and conference calling are some of the other services provided with no extra cost.
As you can see the VOIP service has many advantages. Though it is a small business VOIP but it saves cost from 30% to 90% from regular phone companies. I think this is the sufficient reason to switch to VoIP.
