Free Information for VoIP Enthusiasts
Computers today are everywhere. Every aspect of our life is done
with or through the use of computers. Whether it is in health, business,
governance or relaxation, computers are widely used to process or
aid in its function. The internet further enhanced the computer’s
usage. It became the electronic bridge between countries of the
world for messages, business, information and so many thing else.
In terms of communication, a new system has come out of the internet.
The name of this new system of communication is VoIP which stands
for voice over Internet Protocol. This system of voice communication
will enable everybody to communicate with their friends and relatives
all over the world through voice communication via the internet.
VoIP is now beginning to be the favored system of communication
in America and even in Europe. It is now making inroads even in
the Asian market.
When you compare VoIP with the standard long distance telephone
calling system, you can see a lot of difference that will favor
VoIP system over long distance telephone communication. In terms
of voice clearness and speed, features that are offered and the
cost, the long distance telephone system is way behind VoIP.
Clearness and speed of communication is an advantage VoIP has
over the standard long distance telephone system. This is because
while long distance telephone system uses the analog system of communication,
VoIP uses the digital system, which is the most advance system of
communication. Analog system of communication uses wave radio frequencies
to transmit sound. This is an old technology which is susceptible
to interference from other frequencies. This is why; you usually
hear background noises or interruptions during your long distance
calls. On the other hand, VoIP uses the most modern of system communication
which is the digital system. The digital system uses binary numeric
forms such as 1 and 0 to transmit sounds, thereby precluding any
interruptions or other kind of sound from interfering with the voice
signal. This will result to a clear and uninterrupted voice communication.
With regards to the speed of connections, the long distance telephone
companies connectivity will depend on the capacity of inter linking
telephone channels to carry the voice message from one point to
another. The connectivity therefore has no uniform assurance of
speed. With VoIP, it will be an entirely different matter. Since
VoIP is carried by the internet through its broadband super fast
connectivity, you can be assured of super fast connection every
time you call. A person from any point in Asia can call somebody
in Iceland and be answered immediately within a minute of dialing
the number. With long distance telephone call, you will be hard
put to immediately have a connection.
And when it comes to different service features, whatever services
the long distance telephone companies can offer their clients, VoIP
can also offer, but the service of VoIP which is the video and audio
conferencing, can never be offered by the long distance telephone
companies. And to top it all, this feature is a free added service
of VoIP. Of course, if you will request this from your telephone
company, they might be able to give you also this kind of service,
but because they will have to put on a lot of connection to be able
to give you this service, it may cost you several thousands of dollars
just to have even one minute of video and audio conferencing from
someone in another country.
The most important difference between VoIP system of communication
from that of a long distance system of communication will be the
cost of calls. Will you believe me when I tell you that the cost
of a one minute long distance call using VoIP system is just a small
fraction of a one minute call using the long distance telephone?
Hard to believe? If you found it hard to believe what I have just
told you, I think you will now call me a liar when I will tell you
that if you are using a VoIP system, and you will call somebody
in a foreign land using the same VoIP provider as you have, you
can talk without limit all throughout the day FREE of any charge!
You can call me a liar, but this is true.
