4 Ways to be Connected through VoIP

The great flexibility of VoIP technology allows consumers to choose the type of VoIP connection that is the most suitable one for individual or office use. In general several types of VoIP connections are offered by VoIP providers among which the most widely used ones will be presented hereunder. 

1. Computer to computer

This is a very preferable VoIP category due to ease of use and cost-effectiveness. It implies minimum hardware requirements: Internet enabled computer, a headset, microphone and the necessary software. Such type of voice connection enables the simultaneous communication between the two parties that are within the same network. This means that both users should be online at the time of establishing the communication. Computer to computer connection is a rather cheap option since calls go through Internet ensuring faster connection.

2. Computer to phone

This type of service builds a network between the computer and traditional landline telephone systems. The software which has been installed into the PC transforms data into analog ones to be transmitted over conventional telephone lines. Lots of enterprises give preference to this type of VoIP calling since it expands the possibilities for placing long-distance calls, be it landline or mobile, at rather cheap rates. The use of this mode may lead to huge savings significantly reducing costs for monthly phone bills.  

3. IP phones

By appearance IP phones look very much like analog phones, but unlike traditional landlines this kind of phones are connected to a router which enables VoIP based connections. Communicating over IP phones is rather convenient and simple since it is like using the ordinary telephones. Besides, IP phones come equipped with rather handy features which ensure VoIP communication to run more smoothly and effectively.

4. ATA

ATA stands for Analog Telephone Adapter which serves for connecting the phone into a VoIP platform using computer or else other network device. Thus ATA delivers IP based VoIP calls which may be managed through features such as call forwarding, call waiting, caller ID and others. Analog Telephone Adapters are also able to handle power outages with an opportunity to make an automatic switch to landline phone services in case of blackouts.

Whatever connection you choose, be sure that in any case the deployment of VoIP services brings solutions that are ready to facilitate and enhance communications providing reliable and affordable connections throughout the whole world.
