There Is No Reason to Fear Internet Telephony - Image 1

Just about everybody knows how to access the Internet, be it from their computer, smartphone or tablet. And it seems like the younger they are the more precocious and yet proficient they become. Just the other day, there was a news headline that casually mentioned that a toddler was able to buy a car on eBay using his dad's smartphone. So dads, keep your smartphone securely out of the reach of children. While we all know how great the Web can be for everything from catching up on the news to sharing photos with some of our friends or relatives, there is a lot more that can be done with this worldwide phenomenon.

Your Phone Call over the Internet


One of the latest additions to the technology of the Internet is the ability to make regular phone calls through the Web. Weâre not talking about using one of the computer based programs, such as the popular Skype, which basically connects two computers together as if they were exchanging an e-mail. In this case, an actual phone call, initiated from a regular phone, can actually travel over the Internet to another phone. This is called Voice over Internet protocol or VoIP for short. In concept, it really is quite simple: the sound from the conversation that is generated is converted into data, which is then sent through the Internet. The data is basically treated like any other data that crosses the globe across the Web every day.

A Great Way to Save Money


One of the great advantages of a VoIP solution for any company is the fact that it can be extremely inexpensive. No longer beholden to the whims and tariffs of a regular phone line, or even the charges of a mobile phone operator, hundreds if not thousands of calls can be processed daily with very little expense. If a company has offices or clients spread out across the world, the solution eliminates all of the international or long-distance charges that they would otherwise be saddled with. Largely thanks to the modern high-speed broadband Internet connections that most offices have, call quality is just as good as that of a regular phone line.

Staying Flexible


Any company considering implementing a VoIP solution has several different choices. They could either adapt their existing physical telephones that they work on the Internet, or they can buy (or lease) a PBX system which is specifically designed to work over the Internet. The advantage of the latter is that it offers many features which leverage the power of the Internet to allow people to be reached anytime, anywhere and even have coworkers easily set up group calls.

Getting the Best Advice


Any company that is looking to implement new technology solutions, as well as take a hard look at what they already have, in order to see if it meets their current needs, needs some expert advice. They should seek out professionals that have deep information technology experience and can offer them not only the best advice, but also the best service. A company like Cygnus will always be able to provide sound recommendations, as well as be available at any time if any problems should arise.

It's good to know that even in our increasingly complex technology world, there are companies out there that can help us make the most of what is available.
