What is Internet Telephony & VOIP?

Internet Telephony is  the communication of voice messages over the Internet, instead of through the public switched telephone network (PSTN). The term “Internet telephony” specifically encompasses VoIP.

VoIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol. This is a system by which phone calls are made via the internet, rather than through traditional phone lines.

VoIP technology converts analog audio signals into digital data that can be transmitted over the internet. When a call is made using VoIP, the voice data travels from the caller’s phone to an IP network via an analog telephone adapter (ATA) or IP phone. The data then travels over the internet to its destination, where it is converted back into analog audio signals and heard through a conventional phone.

The VoIP phone system, which is based on internet telephony, offers a number of features to enhance your business communication. Here is a top ten list:
