Using VoIP Technology for Your Business: Voice Over Internet Protocol

VoIP TechnologyFor businesses who have quality internet connections, VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) enables users to use phone services over a digital network instead of from the local phone company.

The key words being: Quality Internet Connections.

As one of the most popular forms of communications today, VoIP applications, such as Skype, iTel, Viber, Google Hangout, Line, and CoolDialer are improving the way businesses communicate. Let’s take a closer look at who can benefit from using VoIP and considerations for applying it for business needs.

Who Uses a VoIP Phone?

VoIP service providers typically offer lower rates than traditional phone companies. Due to this, some businesses use VoIP instead of their traditional phone service. However, VoIP doesn’t offer 911 service, 411 service or other common phone services such as direct listings. These features are considered “add-ons.”

Benefits of Using VoIP Technology for Business

Using a VoIP system has several benefits for businesses of any size, including:

  • Save Money– Using a VoIP telephone is much more cost-effective than using a conventional phone.
  • Portability- If you have reliable internet access, then the convenience provided by a VoIP telephone system is available worldwide.
  • Flexibility– A VoIP system gives you the flexibility to use your conventional phone as well as a VoIP converter or VoIP telephone adapter. All you need is a computer with a high-speed internet connection.
  • Multi-Functional– VoIP technology also allows you to conduct video conference calling without having to worry about being physically present.

Preparing Internal Network for VoIP Strains

The success of this communication solution is directly linked to the strength of internet connections and network infrastructures. For businesses to ensure successful implementation of VoIP technology, businesses need a broadband Internet connection that can handle both data and Internet phone calls.

Add this to the increasing trends of managing business needs by utilizing apps and responding to the “always-on” way of life, and it’s clear that internal networks must be prepared for the strain.

Telecommunications Infrastructure Upgrade

If you’re looking to incorporate VoIP, this is the perfect opportunity to analyze current telecommunication infrastructures and consider an upgrade. Greater VoIP reliability, less down time for employees and customers, higher networking speeds and more extensive wireless coverage are just a few benefits a telecommunications upgrade can provide.
