What Are The Advantages of Using VoIP over Traditional Phones?

People in office communicatingVoIP, or voice over IP, is a relatively new type of communication technology designed to make voice communication in ANY place across the globe possible. This is quite useful since voice communication can be rather costly in certain corners of the world, especially when we talk about long distance calls.

If we take a closer look at the battle between digital phone service VS landline, we can see numerous advantages of using the VoIP technology:

Digital Phone Service VS Landline (Advantages of VoIP)

VoIP is Much Cheaper

Using VoIP can save you a lot of money, especially in the long run. When it comes to PSTN (Packet-Switched Telephone Network, or the good old landline), time literally means money. You are paying for minutes that you spend talking via PSTN, while we all know how expensive international calls are. This is not the case with VoIP since this technology uses the Internet as the fulcrum, the only cost you have while using VoIP is your monthly Internet bill.

Numerous surveys suggest that VoIP can potentially save you up to 40 % on local calls, whereas this percentage goes up to 90 % when it comes to international calls.

PSTN allows only two people to talk to each other at the same time, while VoIP provides you with an opportunity to set up a conference in real time.

Affordable Hardware and Software

The only additional hardware you will be needing (aside from your regular computer and Internet connection) are:

  • A sound card
  • Speakers
  • Microphone
  • And/or a headset

As far as software packages are concerned, these are usually free and downloadable from the Internet.

Numerous Useful Features

By using VoIP communication technology you will gain access to various useful, interesting and sophisticated features. Making calls to any destination in the world, caller ID, contact lists, voicemail, and extra-virtual numbers are just some of them.

Multimedia

VoIP is not just about voice communication as it handles various types of media other than just voice:

  • Image transfer
  • Video transfer
  • Text
  • Video calls…

Flexible Network Layout/Higher Fault Tolerance

VoIP doesn’t require its underlying network to be of a particular layout or topology, which means it can use technologies like ATM, SONET, Ethernet and wireless networks to work. The system is standardized, so VoIP requires less equipment management, making it more fault tolerant.

Teleworking

Man working on laptopVoIP allows its users to remotely use the voice, fax and data services and transfers via their company’s intranet. This portable aspect of VoIP technology is among the biggest advantages of using VoIP over traditional phones.

Fax Over IP

Unlike PSTN, VoIP uses real-time fax transmission to convert the data, put it into packets, and deliver these packets more safely and reliably. Not to mention that with VoIP you don’t even need a fax machine.

Wider Aspects of Software Development

Since VoIP technology is capable of combining various data types which makes routing and signaling much more flexible and robust when compared to PSTN, the potential of this technology is enormous. Innovative network application developers are finding new, more reliable and accessible ways to put VoIP to good use with upcoming apps and new versions of Internet browsers.

We hope we’ve helped you understand the benefits of VoIP over traditional phones. Should you have further questions concerning this topic and/or the services RingByName provides, feel free to contact our team, or leave a comment in the comment section below.
