The Benefits of Voip
Most recently, telephone networks and IP-based networks have existed independently from each other and performed different functions. Currently, the VoIP technology allows combining both types of networks, while the IP-telephony, based on this technology, has incorporated it’s benefits.
Low cost of communication (especially for long distance and international telephone calls) – Traditional telephony is based on an extensive network of cables and stations, installation and operation of which is very expensive, hence the high tariffs, and their dependence on the distance. In addition, having the monopoly in the market of communication services for a long time, telephone operators traditionally inflate prices. IP-telephony, using data compression and multi-threading, has the most effective use of communication channels, reaching long-distance and international telephone operators, which reduces the cost of calls via the Internet.
Easy to use – Using IP-telephony is as simple as traditional telephone service. It does not require any special knowledge. Even a person, who never heard of the internet and computers can easily make calls via VoIP technology.
Quality and reliability – Quality and reliability of VoIP communication, in comparison with early solutions of IP-telephony is steadily increasing. Improved algorithms for voice encoding and recovery of lost packets allow reaching a level where the interlocutors perceive speech in much the same way as in traditional telephony.
Enhanced capabilities for corporate networks – Wholesale VoIP allows to unite the regional branches into a single information structure with a corporate-wide telephone and computer network. IP-telephony is ideal for creating a virtual private network (VPN) of your company. This intranet provides the operational management of subsidiaries and communication in solving business problems, and the combination of voice traffic, data transmission and Internet access can reduce the number of leased channels of communication.
Global roaming of communication services, built on the technology of VoIP, differs with much more flexibility than traditional solutions and much lower cost, which is an effective solution both for businesses and individuals.
