How Does a Efone VoIP Phone System Work?
A VoIP phone system is a technology to make phone calls through your internet connection instead of a regular landline or a mobile network. A VoIP system converts analog voice signals into digital signals over your broadband connection. A VoIP server is used to connect calls to other telephone networks.
As long as you have a high-speed internet connection, which includes a router you are ready to use a VoIP.
A typical VoIP configuration involves a desk phone and a SIP server, (provided by Efone). It works even better than your traditional landline phone because it offers many more features than what analogue phone service could ever provide.
Since VoIP runs over the internet, your data is stored securely in the cloud. You can manage the VoIP system through an online portal. This portal allows users to adjust contacts, business phone numbers, call forwarding, and add extensions etc.. It’s also much easier to add new features that essential to your business needs
Why Do Businesses use VoIP?
For a business application, VoIP is an ideal solution to provide employees reliable phone service, and it won’t cost you all that much.
One of the top reasons VoIP has far outpaced traditional phone service is the flexibility and professional calling features for one low price.
Instead of having a server room with an on-premises PBX (Private Branch Exchange), all you need are configured VoIP desk phones.
Hosted VoIP for Business
In the network diagram shown below, you can see that a hosted VoIP phone system consists of many devices, including smartphones, to provide unified business communication. This approach is known as a cloud phone system or a “cloud PBX.” Administrators can manage the permissions and features for each employee along with more sophisticated VoIP features with an online interface. When an employee calls a customer, they pick up the handset and dial them just as they normally would. The IP phone (or app) travels through your Local Area Network (LAN) switch and business router before reaching the VoIP service provider. From there, the VoIP provider establishes the call.
If the network path to the called party supports a digital voice signal, then the call quality is upgraded to high definition. Otherwise, a VoIP provider connects the call over the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). Using a hosted VoIP system in your business is that simple. However, for established businesses with a more sophisticated phone system, there are different needs. If the office uses a PBX, you probably also pay for trunked telephone lines. These trunked lines handle voice calls from the PBX to the phone company—and they’re not cheap!
