All of the large telecommunication companies use IP to carry their long distance telephone traffic through a host of conference call providers - so in a way, we all use VoIP whether we know it or not! VOIP is the cost effective solution to getting a handle on rising communications costs and increased demand to have sophisticated phones systems in place. Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) in conjunction with an IP PBX system provides enterprise-class phone capabilities easily connecting satellite offices together at drastic savings compared with traditional phone systems.

VoIP conference calling providers must also contribute to funds established to share LNP and numbering administration costs among all telecommunications providers benefiting from these services. VoIP therefore required some new innovations before it could really get off the ground. VoIP works in a relatively simple way. Each time you make a phone call your voice is converted into a stream of data.

VoIP is used by wireless, local, long-distance and cable providers. With VoIP, service providers can introduce -- or evolve to -- a single voice network that is IMS-ready for video, data and more. VoIP for business is already becoming mainstream. VoIP aficionados are cashing in on this cool tools popularity by creating MP3 players with in-built VoIP capability. Sing along with your favourite tune, or ring your favourite pal?

VoIP, after all, employs the Internet to operate, and network communications - along with their data centres and other resources - are notoriously energy hungry. According to Gartner Research , increasing energy costs, green technology, and increased environmental regulations pose significant challenges to corporate IT departments. VoIP could mean big savings, especially for businesses, substantially lowering long-distance expenses. For instance, the technology allows a customer to select the area code they want for their phone number. VoIP software eliminates the need for a per-minute rate on phone calls. Customers pay a low monthly rate for phone and Internet service and all calls are included in the package.

Businesses simply send all of their information over their Broadband Internet connection whether it be Internet data from PCs or voice calls from their employees. It all shares the same pipe, which could be DSL or Cable High Speed connection for Small Offices or T1/T3 cables for medium to larger sized businesses. Businesses that have multiple physical locations for their offices benefit from these systems drastically. As long as the offices work off of the same network, employees can dial each other's extensions and reach them shortly, no matter how far away their offices are.

Voice over IP offers a great value to the consumers because of the drastically reduced long distance costs as well as inexpensive local phone service with lots of enhanced features. Some providers offer more features than others. Voice over IP service providers uses the internet to carry voice signals from their networks to your home phone. Because VoIP telecommunication isn't regulated the way traditional phone line telecommunication is, VoIP providers like Vonage can offer drastically lower calling rates. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is gaining a lot of attention these days, as more companies and individuals switch from standard telephone service to phone service via the Internet. The reason is simple: A single network to carry voice and data is easier to scale, maintain, and administer.
