VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) Technology allows a user to make and receive phone calls and faxes through the internet. By converting the analog voice signal to a digital data packet, calls are able to travel through the Internet and are converted back to audio again at the other end. VoIP uses desktop phones, applications on PC’s, laptops and smartphones, as well as WebRTC enabled web browsers to make and receive calls. A VoIP user also has the ability to talk to a user on a traditional landline phone as well.
Since VoIP does not use traditional circuit-switched networks, it has lower infrastructure and maintenance costs. VoIP also allows providers to set up systems on public and private networks and allows organizations to run a single voice and data network.
