Hello Mi Fans,
Hope you guys are having loads of fun here in Mi Community. We are again back with the Tech Class session. In today's 'Tech Class Chapter' we will know more about VoIP and how it works
What is VoIP?
VoIP is the technology that converts your voice into a digital signal, allowing you to make a call directly from a computer, a VoIP phone, or other data-driven devices. Simply put, it’s phone service delivered over the internet. You may also hear it referred to as IP telephony, internet telephony, broadband telephony, or broadband phone service.Now you can make phone calls anytime, anywhere using an Internet-connected computer, a headset, and voice over IP (VoIP).Skype is also an a VoIP and well popular among users who use it in their day today life
How it works?
VoIP functions much like any other data you send over the internet such as Slack messages or e-mail) in that it converts voice communication into data packets and sends it over an IP network. VoIP makes it unnecessary to have a traditional phone line installed in your business or home, since you can make calls using your internet connection There’s a lot more that goes into a VoIP system that makes it an ideal solution for personal and business use.One of the main benefits to using a VoIP system for your communications is that it cuts down on the number of providers and solutions you need.Rather than having a separate phone company and internet company, VoIP makes it possible to combine your voice and internet communications into the same service. It’s also much easier than traditional voice communications to scale for growth or add new features that essential to your business needs.Since VoIP runs over an IP network, all of your data is stored in the cloud and settings are accessible through a universal online dashboard or application. This dashboard allows users to access their data (contacts, phone numbers, client information), setup new call settings, and add new phone numbers, whether you’re traveling or in the office.With all communications in one place, it’s no wonder businesses have been rapidly adopting this new technology over the past few years.
How it helps in business?
What's required for VoIP?
You will need a broadband Internet connection, such as DSL or cable, T1 or wireless. In most cases you will need an "always on" type of connection with a bandwidth of at least 128kbps on both upload and download for a single VoIP voice connection (an uncompressed voice connection will use approximately 90kpbs on both the upload and download. There are connections using a compressed voice "codec" that will use less.), As long as the wireless provider's bandwidth meets the minimum requirements for the VoIP provider you choose and their connection is stable enough to offer a connection without packet loss or jitter in network
