So what is voice over IP? Quite simply, VOIP allows you to use your existing data network or the internet to transfer voice traffic as well as data. The net result is Free voice calls and you can't get more cost effective than that!
Today we can carry voice over our data networks, and this enables voice to be carried from office to office over IP. Corporate companies who have a number of offices, either locally or in multiple countries, usually support their own leased lines for data transfer. Voice Over IP allows telephone calls to be transferred across these lines. Whilst bandwidth considerations must be made, as the voice runs parallel with the data and quality of service needs to be enforced, the cost saving is still phenomenal.
Voice Over IP enables phone calls to be made over the internal network instead of at high cost over the PSTN. Essentially the voice rides for 'free' whether the call is to an office locally or internationally. The cost of international phone calls can be greatly reduced, where offices abroad can enable their users to dial out to that local country at the cost of a local or standard rate call. Voice over IP means phenomenal cost savings on phone calls both nationally and internationally.
A VOIP network can be as small as two offices or as large as hundreds of offices. Each office installs and cons a VOIPon their network to begin placing calls or sending faxes to the other offices on the VOIP network.
The most substantial savings are often realized in overseas communication.
