(VoIP) Voice Over IP. What is it? Does your
business need it?
Few technologies in recent years have created
the buzz and talk like Voice over IP (VoIP). But what is the
big deal about it? Quite simply VoIP sends your calls over
an IP network (the Internet). The idea is that all of your
long distance calls would be free, much like surfing the internet
anywhere in the world. The reality is that it is not quite
so simple. Most VoIP calls still eventually wind up on some
PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) and, as a result,
have toll charges. So how might VoIP benefit your business?

The most obvious environment for a VoIP solution
is for a business with multiple branches, particularly those
that are spread far apart. Calls made to each office through
your VoIP system can be made as simple as an inter-office
transfer. In addition those calls would be toll free as would
any calls to the same city as your branch office. This can
be a tremendous cost savings for many businesses. A shared
receptionist to answer all calls for each office can also
be a sizeable savings for your business as well.
Of course, there are pros and cons to a
VoIP system. Call quality and reliability have been and can
be an issue. The ability of your data network to handle the
additional load and prioritize voice versus data packets is
critical. For these reasons doing business with a company
that has IP data network expertise is very important.
