Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that enables voice communication and multimedia sessions to be transmitted over the Internet or other IP-based networks. Instead of traditional telephone lines, VoIP converts audio signals into digital data packets that can be transmitted over data networks. This allows users to make voice calls, conduct video conferences, and exchange multimedia content using their internet connection.
VoIP offers several advantages over traditional phone systems, including cost savings, as calls made using VoIP are often significantly cheaper, especially for international calls. It also provides more flexibility and features, such as call forwarding, voicemail to email transcription, and integration with other communication tools. VoIP can be used on various devices, including computers, smartphones, IP phones, and even some traditional telephones with adapters.
Overall, VoIP has transformed communication by leveraging the power of the internet to provide more efficient, cost-effective, and feature-rich voice and multimedia communication solutions.
