VOIP - Internet Phone Lines
VoIP (voice over internet protocol) is simply a new way to operate a telephone system.
In the past, the “plain old telephone system” (POTS) was the only way to carry your voice across wires and cables to the person you were speaking to. Today many people and businesses have broadband (fast internet) which is connected all the time. But ironically they still use an old telephone system. If your business has broadband you can transform how your telephone system operates and as a result save a considerable amount of money.
The requirements for VoIP are simple :-
- A Broadband Internet Connection
- A Hardware or Software based VoIP phone
- An Australian VoIP Provider like Launtel
According to Sensis, 20% of all small to medium enterprises in Australia have embraced VoIP as a viable business communications strategy. Whilst the small business sector is only just beginning to appreciate the benefits of VoIP technology, medium sized enterprises have long recognised that VoIP services offer not only a substantial cost benefit, but also greater flexibility for workplace efficiencies and delivery of service.
This is anticipated to rise significantly in the short term with the roll-out of the National Broadband Network, with increasing internet capability nationwide (especially in regional areas) and as more technologically advanced mobile handsets, with the capacity to engage with VoIP connectivity, become readily available.
