While we are deeply familiar with the ins and outs of VoIP systems, we understand that many of our clients may not completely understand the benefits of this service. In today’s FX Technology blog, we take a look at the basics of VoIP and how it can benefit your business.

What is VoIP?

First of all, VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It can also be referred to as internet telephony, IP telephony, or internet calling. VoIP systems allow a person to make voice calls via a broadband internet connection. Your voice is converted into a digital signal that can allow you to make a call directly from a computer, a specific VoIP phone, or even a traditional phone—as long as it’s connected to a VoIP adapter.

How Does it Differ from Traditional Phone Systems?

The main way a VoIP system differs from traditional phone systems is the use of broadband internet services to connect phones rather than using phone lines. Like we mentioned earlier, VoIP systems can be used with phones and computers, giving users more methods to stay connected instead of having to rely solely on landlines. VoIP systems allow for a seamless integration of multimedia applications like voice, video, and more through one communication circuit, making all aspects of communication simpler and easier than more traditional methods. Consolidating and streamlining the main methods of communication is also a much more cost-effective communication solution for many businesses.

Will a VoIP System Benefit My Business?

Now that you have a better understanding of what VoIP systems are and how they work, your next questions are probably focused on whether or not a VoIP system can benefit your business. The short answer is yes! FX Technology’s solutions benefit any size of business from large corporations to small businesses and home offices. We work closely with a number of different system integration organizations and other service providers to create the best service packages for our clients.
