What is a VoIP phone?

A voip phone, or IP phone, is a telephone that sends its calls over the internet instead of a traditional telecoms network. It stands for Voice over IP (VoIP) and it is the first choice for millions of people around the world who are looking for the lowest prices combined with the most powerful features.

Benefits of using a VoIP phone

There are too many advantages of switching to VoIP to list them all here, but a few of the major benefits are listed below for your consideration.

Cost savings

VoIP is a disruptive technology in the traditional telecoms market. Whether you are comparing the cost of calls made, or the cost of service provision and maintenance, VoIP systems win on price every time.

Modern media

Traditional telecoms platforms do one thing reasonably well - audio - but a modern VoIPphone handles things such as presence , instant messaging, video and more.

Persence is a SIP / VoIP feature that allows a user to indicate their wilingness to communicate. So in the most basic example, the indication would be that a user is online. However presence is also often used to indicate states such as busy, do not disturb, away and so forth.

Freedom to roam

With a traditional phone line, your handset and your line are fixed. With a VoIP phone, you are free to go anywhere that has an internet connection. This is a very popular feature for people that travel a lot on business.

Service mobility

Moving between VoIP providers is really very painless and this leads to increased competition in the market and additional savings for users. Changing your VoIPphone to use a different provider is a simple as setting a new address, username and password.

Integration heaven

Because VoIP and SIP services run over the internet, they also integrate extremely well with other applications that you may be using such as Microsoft outlook or a CRM service.

Rich features

Modern VoIP phones have access to a huge range of possible features and services, such as Click-To-Dial, Find-Me-Follow-Me (FMFM), call forwarding, multiple lines, call transfer, time of day features, voicemail to email, call screening, coaching tools, IVR / auto-attendant and conferencing. With developers designing new services all the time, the possibilities are almost endless!
