What Is VoIP Phone Service?
VoIP phone service also known as Voice Over Internet Protocol, or commonly called VoIP, uses today’s technology to transmit telephone calls over your IP network — typically called the internet. VoIP digitizes sound and sends it out over the internet; when it arrives at its destination, a recipient converts digitized data back into voice signals for playback on their end of call device.
VoIP has grown in popularity with businesses for multiple reasons. Cost, much cheaper than traditional telephone services and also eliminated the need for additional roll over phone numbers. Flexibility, more flexible in terms of how many phones you need on your network. Adaptability, allows for company growth, customization and permits numerous locations to connect under one system. VoIP also affords companies to use fewer resources when they are looking at their office layout, since they can maintain one centralized location for all their systems like PBXs or voicemail boxes rather than having them spread out among different locations throughout the building. VoIP’s ease of adaptability was very much evident in March of 2020 when US businesses were forced to relocate their staff for remote office work. MetroConnect clients carried home their office phone and our staff did the rest remotely. Their customers couldn’t tell they were working remotely, permitting them to continue professional communication with their customers versus other companies that conducted business on their garbled cell phones.
