Make Use Of The Advantages Small Business Voip Phone Systems Offer

By Jaclyn Hurley

Because Internet telephony is not yet as widespread as cell phones, for example, it is less well known among people and in particular mobile operators, which compete with it by spreading myths and untruths with relish. The technology behind small business VOIP phone systems carries many advantages and has been accused of many things, which are not true, at best. This does not change the fact that phone calls over the Internet are much cheaper than any other telephony technologies in Vancouver, BC are.

Your mobile providers would have you believe that Internet telephony is unreliable, having many failures and the like. Here is the point at which you should be yelling foul at them. You know from experience how often you can not reach a cell phone for "unknown reasons". Someone, the connection interrupts for no reason and you dial again and again, paying the operator all the way.

Of course, no technology is foolproof, but with Internet telephony, the answer is simple: its reliability depends on the reliability of your Internet connection. If the quality is good (which today, with the vast majority of standard connections being ADSL or cable TV lines), outages are very rare and, moreover, usually only very short (seconds or fractions of seconds). Only in the case of obscure and low-quality Internet connections, will can be met with less reliability.

Operators that provide Internet calls, tend to approach customers fairly. Their fares are very simple, understandable and stable. They do not use the deliberately incomprehensible contracts and lengthy, unreadable General Terms of Service, with miniature printed letters. Operators that service smaller businesses are mostly small or medium companies, they run on domestic capital, unlike all mobile operators, which are owned by multinational corporations, tied to foreign capital.

Your providers will tell you that to make phone calls over the Internet, you require a computer. This malicious falsehood is used by representatives of all non-Internet operators today, despite the fact that such a thing was never true, except in the prehistoric times of phone calls over the Internet. What you need is an Internet connection, and not even an Internet "socket"; you can use the Internet "in the air", ie using wireless (WI-FI, etc.) networks.

The technology is a digital service and therefore goes about converting analog signals to digital on the side of one party and the opposite conversion from digital to analogue telephony with the other party. This transfer is done via codecs. They are clearly predefined and approved procedures on how to convert analog audio to digital.

They myth about the bad quality of VOIP is also a favorite malicious lie from other, non- Internet based operators. The quality of the phone call, to the greatest extent, depends on two factors. They are the codec used and the throughput or availability of the line. The truth is that the operators use significantly, up to several times, faster codecs than mobile operators.

These codecs used by Voice Over IP provides have significantly less compression and thus the distortion of the call is minimized. The tinny sound familiar from mobile calls to you is non- existent with phone calls over the Internet! When one calls over the Internet, there is also far less risk of overcrowding the lines, something you will have experienced on a cellphone over the festive season.
