Getting Started with VoIP

What inspired me to start a blog was to essentially guide the uninitiated in understanding VoIP technology and help them get a clearer perspective of how to interface this new technology with their business. VoIP is not a rocket science as is normally believed. It is a contemporary method of communicating with others from across the globe via online web interface.

VoIP termination service transmits the voice through high speed broadband internet (ideal speed would be 128 kbps) by condensing and converting it into small digital IP packets from analog signals. These digital IP packets are then reconverted into analog signals, i.e. in the form of voice, and decompressed before they finally reach the listener on the other end.

Benefits of using VoIP call termination service are numerous. Since the voice is transmitted via internet it completely cuts down the need for optical fiber lines thereby cutting down on the cost of calling. You can end up saving up to 50% by utilizing this service.

Moreover one gets the same voice quality as is provided by traditional modes of communication namely- PSTN and PBX. Most of the corporate houses who have integrated VoIP telephony with their businesses claim that it has tremendously increased the productivity.

Being location independent, it gives the benefit of taking your business along with you where ever you go. All that is needed to get started is an internet connection, computer or IP phone, ATA and speakers.

Its benefits are far more than the ones I have listed. All you need to do is get creative and experiment with VoIP in order to get the most out of this revolutionary technology.
