Before going further we have to understand about the term VoIP.

What is VOIP

VoIP, also known as Voice of Internet Protocol, is a term that all industries that use telecommunications at any level are going to be hearing more and more in the near future
It allows telephone calls to be made over computer networks like the Internet. VoIP converts analog voice signals into digital data packets and supports real-time, two-way transmission of conversations using Internet Protocol (IP).     
Some of the most popular features include:.

  • Voicemail to Email
  • Automated Attendant 
  • Automated Live Failover
  • Disaster Recovery
  • Auto Day/Night Time Conditions
How does VOIP work?

A way is required to turn analog phone signals into digital signals that can be sent over the Internet.This function can either be included into the phone itself or in a separate box like an ATA (Advanced Technology Attachment)

Why use VOIP?

These are the reasons to use VOIP:-

1.Lower Cost

                 In general phone service via VOIP costs less than equivalent service from traditional sources. This is largely a function of traditional phone services either being monopolies or government entities. There are also some cost savings due to using a single network to carry voice and data. This is especially true when users have existing under-utilized network capacity that they can use for VOIP without any additional costs.

2.More User-Friendly for Employees:- VOIP makes easy some things that are difficult to impossible with traditional phone networks.
  • Incoming phone calls are automatically routed to your VOIP phone where ever you plug it into the network. Take your VOIP phone with you on a trip, and anywhere you connect it to the Internet, you can receive your incoming calls.
  • Call center agents using VOIP phones can easily work from anywhere with a good Internet connection.
3.More than two persons

On the phone line, only two persons can speak at a time. With VoIP, you can setup a conference with a whole team communicating in real time. VoIP compresses data packets during transmission, and this causes more data to be handled over the carrier. As a result, more calls can be handled on one access line.


  1. Nice blog. Helpful informations about advanteges of switching to VoIP. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I use a VoIP number because my it will automatically forward to either my cell phone or work phone. The voicemail system is great too, and it automatically transcribes all messages and sends them to me via e-mail. I usually make calls using VoIP using my iPhone because there are so many apps available. I have saved a lot of money and hassle by using VoIP and keeping the existing number over the years.

  3. Internet telephony does more than increase savings by lowering costs. It also enables the user to integrate software programs, such as e-mail, e-fax, and remote conferencing over the Internet via the telephone. In other words, a VoIP user can speak to somebody over the phone while accessing other applications, including the Internet simultaneously. VoIP users can take their adapters anywhere, making it possible to hold telephone conversations at venues that offer an Internet connection. An increase in mobility assists individuals who are always on the move, especially corporate employees who are required to travel. Long distance VoIP calls are also relatively cheaper than traditional cell phone calls.
