What is VoIP
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), also called IP telephony, is a method for taking analog audio signals, like the kind you hear when you talk on the phone, and turning them into digital data that can be transmitted over the Internet. VoIP can turn a regular broadband Internet connection into a way to make free phone calls, or very inexpensive calls to anywhere in the world.
What are the benefits of VoIP
There are many benefits of VoIP phone systems for businesses. VoIP systems are more cost effective than traditional phone systems, offer more features and functionality, and are more scalable. VoIP systems also offer better call quality than traditional phone systems.
What do you need to set up a VoIP phone system?
There are three primary considerations when setting up a VoIP phone system:
- A high-speed Internet connection with enough upload and download capacity to support the number of audio streams you need.
- A VoIP adapter for each phone, or a computer with VoIP software installed.
- An account with a VoIP service provider.
To find out your Internet connection’s upload and download capacity, contact your service provider. Most cable and DSL providers offer service that’s fast enough for VoIP, but you’ll want to ask about any monthly bandwidth caps or usage-based fees that could apply. If you’re using a computer for VoIP calls, all you need is the VoIP software installed and an account with a VoIP service provider. But if you want to use a regular landline phone, you’ll need to connect it to a VoIP adapter. Most adapters have one port for an Ethernet cable (to connect to your router) and one port for a phone line. You plug your regular phone into the adapter, and the adapter connects to your router via Ethernet cable.
How to set up a VoIP phone system
There are a few things you need to set up a VoIP phone system:
- A broadband Internet connection with enough upload speed to support VoIP calls (most cable and DSL connections will work)
- A VoIP adapter or IP phone
- A VoIP service plan
If you have a broadband Internet connection and you want to use VoIP, all you need is a VoIP adapter or IP phone. You can buy these devices online or at many electronics stores. If you want to use your regular telephone with VoIP, you’ll need a special adapter that connects your phone to your broadband modem.
Once you have the hardware, all you need is a VoIP service plan. There are many companies that offer VoIP service, so shop around to find the best price and features for your needs. Most plans include unlimited calling to the U.S. and Canada, but some plans may charge for international calls or offer only limited minutes per month. Be sure to read the fine print before signing up for any service.
How do you use a VoIP phone system
To get started using a VoIP phone system, you will first need to have an Internet connection with a router as well as an Ethernet connection. Most VoIP phone systems come with an Ethernet cable that you can use to connect your VoIP phone to the router. If you do not have an Ethernet cable, you can also use a USB cable to connect your VoIP phone to the router. In addition, you will need a power adapter for your VoIP phone in order to power it on.
