An IP Telephone System uses technology that turns traditional analog audio signals created when making a call into digital data projected across a basic internet network. Instead of using the public wire network, this technology uses the web, saving the client money by bundling services, abolishing long distance costs, and offering more cost effective and convenient equipment and maintenance. Commonly referred to as VoIP, this technology is useful for businesses, making communication between branches and long distance clients more affordable without sacrificing audio quality.
The method of transferring the audio while making a call is the biggest notable difference between the two forms of calls and by comparison, traditional calls are costly and the technology for them is quickly becoming obsolete. Traditional services clients are used to receiving through dated communication means include Caller ID, call conferencing, call waiting, and 411 directories. These are all accessible through the new service.
Adding additional lines to a growing company’s business phone system is much easier with this product and transferring audio data between branches and employees becomes free over a shared network. Headsets are available that appear identical to the traditional voice call headset, making it easy for customers to acclimate to this new technology. Only the method of connection is different.
Setup is very easy and convenient. Voice call services can be bundled with a web provider, streamlining bills and maintenance while increasing cost efficiency.
Unlike traditional methods of voice calls, one must have access to a power source and working internet connection to utilize an IP Telephone System. However, the money saved making long distance calls and the convenient maintenance and management of the technology makes this a better option for most customers.
