What is VoIP all about?
Updated: May 5, 2022
Phone systems for business have changed a lot recently. The acronym VoIP may be said as Vee-oh-eye-pee, which pronounces each letter like you are spelling it out, Voyp (similar to voice or void), or Voice Over IP or Internet-based phone.
Phone systems since the late 1800s have used copper wire to transmit calls. Now many are using the internet to easily send voice, data, and video. VoIP phone service providers send calls easily and in many cases more cost-effective. Some are 100% operated from a data center around the country or from around the world. Some have special equipment in the business location to process calls.
Small and medium-sized businesses are changing to and taking advantage of VoIP at a rate of 20+% per year. It’s important to know that traditional phone systems aren’t dead, and the ones that are still in service are fine, assuming they are working properly and helping the business have good communication with their customers.
