VoIP: One size fits all

Regardless of company size from small start ups to multinational corporations, businesses are using VoIP (Voice over IP) to further their company’s communication system and save money. By using the traditional phone system customers pay for each minute spent talking on the phone. With Voice over IP no matter how many minutes customers uses they only have to deal with one monthly internet bill. And the bill remains the same. This will make budgeting easier to handle than the previous ways; where you estimate the monthly bill and that could end up over your budget.

The term VoIP is an acronym that stands for “voice over internet protocol”. It’s a popular way to communicate in business communication or when speaking with people in international destinations. Call centers worldwide commonly use Voice over IP technology due to the low cost and the ability to make calls remotely. VoIP lets you have many features without paying extra fees like voice-mail, caller ID, conferencing, forwarding and unlimited long distance. VoIP is so easy to switch over to and start using that you won’t lose even a day of work transferring from traditional phones to internet phones. Many VoIP providers even offer free technical assistance with set up.

How does VoIP work?

The way calls are routed may be different with VoIP. But you still use your existing phone equipment as you would with a regular telephone line. Most VoIP services provide a phone adapter that connects your existing phone with the Internet. You simply plug in the adapter to your internet network and phone and start dialing. Most services give you the option of a soft-phone, which simply means using your computer as a phone.

I also read that in Texas, Brazos County, its new 911 initiative will soon give callers the option of communicating with emergency operator via text. The video option is perhaps about 10 years away for the region. So if the police department in Brazos County trusts their business to VoIP then what other review do you need?
