VoIP allows individuals to make calls over the internet.
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) allows individuals to make calls over the internet.
VoIP technology converts your voice into a digital signal, allowing you to make a call directly from a computer, a VoIP phone, or other data-driven devices. Instead of sending the data through copper telephone lines of traditional PSTN (public switched telephone network) , with VoIP, when a user speaks into their phone, technology converts that sound information into packets of data. Everything sent over the internet is transmitted as a “packet” of information, or data.
The quality of your VoIP call will ultimately depend on three things:
- the quality of your internet connection
- the quality of the internet connection at the receiving end of your call
- the quality of the internet connection along the path in between.
