Sounds Great! But how do SIP Trunks Work?
VoIP is the communication of voice, data or video content over IP (Internet Protocol) networks. In simple terms, VoIP is the use of broadband for telephony and other services.
Ever used Facebook’s call function? That’s VoIP. FaceTime or FaceTime Audio? VoIP again. Skype? Well, you get the idea.
VoIP telephone services allow you to make low cost calls over the internet; using a multitude of different networks and operators, you can connect with members of staff, clients and customers across the globe both cost-effectively and efficiently.
There’s very little to get to grips with when making a VoIP call – you dial a number, and connect through to the person(s) on the other end – most of the time you won’t even realise the difference!
So what’s the point? Well, VoIP is incredibly cheap (sometimes free!), usually faster, more reliable and, what’s more, affords numerous flexible features. We have a complete guide to VoIP which can be found right here.
