VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It is described as the transmission of voice traffic over an IP network, a unique technology that allows making calls over a broadband connection (broadband modem) instead of a regular (analog) telephone line.
VoIP phone systems simplify your communication with modern phone systems that require a high-speed broadband Internet connection, a computer, an adapter, and a dedicated telephone, and offer some distinct benefits for small businesses who want quality telephone service and advanced features on a budget.
Here are some advantages of a VoIP phone system that turn your traditional analog phone service into a digital system.
VoIP phone systems are ideal for low-budget businesses that don't want to compromise on the quality of their phone service. Switching from analog phone service to VoIP can reduce telecommunications costs by eliminating the need for additional long-distance and international calls. If your company makes regular calls outside the area, you may need an unlimited calling service plan. VoIP services are available in unlimited numbers worldwide, which makes the investment very economical.
In addition to being affordable, VoIP systems allow business owners to maintain several different phone lines and extensions from one primary location. This allows small companies to expand to new locations and does not have to invest in new telephone lines because existing lines can be expanded. With the ability to assign a virtual phone number to a location, you can set up a business presence no matter where your office is.
