VoIP Phones what are they and how do they work?
Most of us have heard of VoIP and have a hint of what it is and how it works and it has been around for a while.
VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, is a method for taking analog audio signals, ie the sound you hear on the phone and turning those sounds into digital data. Converting into digital data makes it now transmittable over the internet and not through expensive cables which you have been paying for so far.
Can you see the advantage already?
VoIP can use any internet connect i.e. your broadband connection at home, in the office or anywhere around the world, enabling you to use VoIP Phones absolutely anywhere with a good internet connection.
Whilst VoIP Phones work well on ADSL Broadband connections the introduction and installation of Fibre throughout the UK makes the transition from old analogue lines to VoIP a reality.
There is no reason now why VoIP Phones will replace the old analogue phones from now on.
So how you get set up and use a VoIP Phone Service?
You will need a VoIP Service Provider like 365Comms who streamline the process for VoIP users. With the service you can be online using your new phone within 24 hours if you are buying a VoIP Phone or 1 hour if you already have one. Even if you don’t have a VoIP phone and for some unknown reason you want to keep your old analogue phone then there is an adaptor for that too. Additionally and probably one of the biggest advantages to using 365Comms there is no requirement to sign up for long term contracts, you just Pay As You Go or pay monthly by invoice or standing order, for the rental of the VoIP Services you have selected.
