For some of you who are new to the telecommunications industry and are just joining us… First off Hello! Secondly, I wanted to address something important. Everyone only seems to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of VoIP, but rarely does anyone explain what it actually is. So, without further ado, What is VoIP?

VoIP stands for…

VoIP is a combination between hardware and software that allows you to make phone calls over the internet. Instead of using a regular phone line, the call is transmitted through an IP address. Users can make a call by connecting the network cable to the physical phone or by making the call over the computer.

A well-known example of VoIP is Skype. Skype is a free program that allows you to make VoIP calls to other friends using Skype, anywhere in the world. Participants can make long distance calls without long distance charges. Bicom Systems gloCOM integrates with Skype for Business. The module allows you to sync your gloCOM and Skype online presence and launch a regular or conference call with the contacts from your Skype for Business.
