What is VOIP?

VoIP, which stands for Voice over Internet Protocol, is a technology that allows you to make voice calls using a broadband internet connection instead of a traditional phone line. Here’s how it works:

  1. Analog to Digital Conversion: When you make a call using VoIP, your voice is converted from analog signals into digital data packets.
  2. Packet Switching: These digital data packets containing your voice are broken down, compressed, and sent over the internet using packet-switching technology.
  3. Routing: The data packets travel over the internet and are reassembled at the destination. VoIP systems use IP addresses and protocols to route these packets to the correct recipient.
  4. Conversion Back to Analog: At the receiving end, the digital data packets are converted back into analog signals, allowing the recipient to hear your voice.
  5. Two-Way Communication: VoIP technology enables real-time two-way communication, similar to traditional phone calls, but using the internet as the medium.

VoIP offers cost-effective communication, flexibility, and additional features like video calling, conference calling, and voicemail. It has become increasingly popular for both personal and business use due to its efficiency and affordability.
