What is a VoIP Phone System?

VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. Essentially, this technology enables the user to make voice calls with a broadband internet connection rather than a regular analog phone line.

This means you can make local, mobile, long distance, and even international phone calls all over the internet. You can use your computer, a designated VoIP phone, or a traditional phone that you connect to a VoIP adapter — VoIP phone systems offer flexibility to your business.

Basically, your VoIP phone system changes your voice into a signal that can be transmitted over the internet. If the number you are dialing belongs to a regular phone line, the signal will be converted to a traditional phone signal. If it is another VoIP phone, you will both be speaking over the internet.

What Equipment Does a VoIP Phone System Use?

In order to use a VoIP phone system, your business will need the following:

  • Broadband internet: this can be connected through a cable modem or as high speed internet, like DSL or a local area network.
  • A computer, VoIP adapter, or special VoIP phone: depending on the type of VoIP phone system you choose, you may be able to use your computer to complete calls, or you may need a special VoIP adapter or phone.
