What is VoIP?
A lot of people talk about VoIP and virtual phone numbers, but what actually is it? What are the benefits and why should you use it?
Ok, so just what is it? VoIP is the abbreviation of ‘Voice over Internet Protocol’. In simple terms it is a technology that allows you to make and receive calls using your internet connection.
VoIP = Voice over Internet Protocol
Business grade VoIP systems such as Yay should not be confused with consumer grade services like Skype. Business VoIP is a high quality, reliable and feature rich service that older telephone systems cannot compete with and is now a necessity for any growing business.
Rather than using a traditional phone line to make calls over a public telephone network, VoIP converts your analogue voice into digital data packets and then sends this over the internet.
That means that you no longer need a separate phone line to make phone calls. They can all be sent over your broadband internet connection.
