IP phones are normally used to connect to the network which are often supplied when using a hosted system.Â Alternatively, along with old digital phone systems, you can connect via an on-premies system although these usually have substantial upfront costs.
The technology works by converting speech into data packages, the same used by computer networks.Â This data is sent via the interent before connecting to the fixed-line telephone network or mobile network where it is then converted back to speech.
Historically VoIP systems suffered from poor call quality due to the slow interent speeds accessible during the 90s and early 2000.Â Since fast internet speeds are now widely available VoIP is able to surpass the call quality of older telephone systems.Â Some providers also offer a guaranteed minum number of concurrent calls.
