What is VoIP and why your business needs it?
If you’ve never heard of VoIP, get ready to change the way you think about long-distance phone calls. VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It’s a method for taking analogue signals, like the kind you hear when you talk on the phone, and turning them into digital data that can be transmitted over the Internet.
Basically VoIP ‘compresses’ audio into data packets, transmit the packets across an IP network and ‘decompress’ the packets back into audio at the other end of the connection. With VoIP a physical line isn’t needed, reducing network infrastructure costs, enables companies to phone from a landline anywhere and anytime, and it allows enterprises to operate on a single data network provided by Lomoto Enterprises.
How this will work in your office is where things get interesting; your office’s telephones (the physical handset) is connected to the internet via a router where a private network ensures good call quality to other landlines and cell phones. Because usage is online, users can manage call flows, users and features easily online.
VoIP offers many management features which can be beneficial for operations but also safety. You can set call forwarding, blocking spammers or telesales, you can activate caller ID and voicemail and interactive voice recognition. These features can also be managed remotely as long as you have an internet connection.
VoIP also sounds better than traditional telephone lines. Traditional lines have a range of about 300 Hz to 3400 Hz which can lack clarity and sound confusing to the human ear. VoIP can provide high definition sound with a range between 50 Hz and 7 kHz. The human ear has an easier time processing these frequencies, it provides clearer sound and avoids miscommunication.
