How Does VoIP Work?


By:Laura Rupert


VoIP is said to be the technology of the future because it allows us to do things that were impossible just five years ago. Now, instead of having a public telephone network the VoIP technology allows you to use your broadband connection to make telephone calls. Whatís great about this is that you can use the phones you have always used; you just get to combine two services into one.



The VoIP technology works if you have a broadband connect and a device called a router. The router enables your phone to call just like it always has, but now itís over the broadband digital connection instead of through a conventional phone line. In addition to a router there is a VoIP gateway that connects you to a voice over network so that your voice can be converted into a digital sound instead of through the analog technology of the past. Information is basically sent in packets across broadband lines to give a great sound and seamless connection to those who have VoIP service and even those who do not. VoIP really is a revolution in combining internet access and telephone service because it utilizes the same technology for two very different things.



The VoIP is great because now you can have just one bill that allows you to have phone access as well as broadband service. Luckily, most companies can even allow you to be online at the same time as youíre on the phone. There really arenít any limitations to the VoIP service and in the future it will only get easier. In the coming years digital phones will be made so that each consumer wonít have to have a router, and VoIP service will probably be more common than those who have a public telephone network. If you already have a broadband connection you should definitely consider a VoIP phone connection because itís most cost efficient, itís practical, and it really is the way telephone and internet service is going!
