Main Benefits of VOIP over traditional phone lines.
How VOIP works ?
So how does it all work? VOIP uses codecs to compile audio into data packets and then send them through the internet instantaneously. The codecs G.711 is commonly used for uncompressed packets, which means the data will be at it’s raw file size. G.729 is the standard for compressed files and will be the one most used with VOIP services unless specified by the user. It eliminates the use of circuit-switched networks which means infrastructure costs and functionality is increased. It is also more stable, given the quality of internet providers now a days, it also has a quick turn around in case of outage, where a circuit-based network can be prone to hardware failures or extended outages. Those can be pitfalls for businesses.
It is also an excellent choice for international calling, as IP networks are better integrated and don’t come with additional costs for communicating other businesses or clients overseas.
