It’s been a while since we’ve gotten the chance to (hashtag) blog here at Edgetronix. In fact, it’s been too long. But, luckily, we’ve found enough time in our schedule to allow for a quick one.
That said, let’s dive straight in.
VOIP: Voice over Internet Protocol
As the title of today’s blog no doubt already gave away, we are covering the basics of VOIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol. VOIP can be most accurately described as the transmission of voice and multimedia content over IP networks. In the past, VOIP exclusively meant using IP to connect private branch exchanges, or PBXs, but these days, the term is pretty much interchangeable with IP telephony.
How VOIP Works
VOIP uses codecs to convert audio into encapsulated data packets, after which the data packets are transmitted across a network. Then they are unencapsulated by the receiver of the message, back into audio. This technology reduces network infrastructure costs while also offering businesses the peace of mind that comes with operating under private networks.
Now, there is plenty more to be discussed with regards to VOIP telephones, VOIP protocols and standards, and so on.
Is VOIP Right For Your Business?
At the end of the day, VOIP offers portability, flexibility, accessibility, and significant cost savings. On the other hand, VOIP is also power dependent and bandwidth dependent, so you and your organization need to find a VOIP provider you can count on to be reliable.
