VoIP phones – you think they might be the right way to go for your startup agency or professional practice. But what kinds are there, and which do you need?
What’s are VoIP Phones?
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a technology that sends your voice over the digital network, rather than through the public switched telephone network (PSTN). By using internet protocol data packets to transfer voice, fax, and other data over the shared network, toll charges can be eliminated. This can make VoIP calls cheaper than calls made over PSTN.
VoIP phones are like ordinary telephone handset, except that it digitizes the acoustic signals received from your mouthpiece, and sends the digitized voice content as packets on your network.
