What is Hosted VoIP?

What is VoIP?

VoIP — which stands for voice over Internet protocol. It is a new technology that will improve the way we communicate. VoIP basically means voice transmitted over a digital network.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is very simply, a method for taking ordinary analogue audio signals and turning them into digital signals that can be sent over the Internet.

For those of you who are already paying a monthly fee for an Internet connection, this means that you can use that same connection to place phone calls.

In line with customer demand, we are able to offer you a complete and fully-featured telephony solution which is ideal for all business types and sizes, but especially those organisations which have multiple sites and/or home workers.

As with any communication system, call quality is dependent on the underlying access available. A standard 10MB broadband connection can carry up to 8 high quality simultaneous calls.

If your connection is also being used for data then you may notice a slight degradation of quality depending on the amount of data being used. For business use we would recommend a dedicated broadband connection for VoIP so that calls are kept separate from your data traffic.

We use UK-based carriers employing the very latest in network technology. This ensures you receive reliability of service and accurate management and billing information.

No, you can connect the Hosted handset directly to your broadband router or network switch. A PC does not need to be turned on.
