Guide to Voice over IP (VoIP)

Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP, is a technology that allows calls to be made over a high-speed internet or broadband connection. It offers users a range of benefits, which have the ability to change the way we use the telephone. The major reason businesses switch to VoIP is that it cuts costs dramatically. If you have an always-on broadband connection to the internet then calls between individuals with VoIP equipment - even international calls - are free. All you pay for is your internet connection. From a simple telephony perspective, it’s common for a user moving from a traditional ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) telephone system to VoIP to halve their running costs. Mobility applications are also driving the shift to VoIP, enabling users to work with devices other than the traditional desk phone.
