Connection of VoIP Telephony

VoIP telephony, also known as VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephony, is a technology that allows you to make phone calls over the Internet. For VoIP telephony, companies do not need a separate phone line. All you need is an internet connection and a device that supports VoIP telephony.

What is VoIP telephony?

VoIP telephony works by transmitting voice data in the form of data packets over the internet.

Advantages of VoIP telephony

VoIP telephony has a number of advantages over traditional telephony:

  • Cost savings: VoIP telephony can help you save money on phone calls. This is because VoIP telephony uses internet traffic, which is typically cheaper than traditional phone usage.
  • Ease of use: VoIP telephony can be used anywhere there is an internet connection. This means you can make and receive calls from anywhere in the world.
  • Extra features: VoIP telephony typically offers additional features such as call recording, voicemail, and call forwarding.

Choosing a telephony provider

When choosing an VoIP telephony provider, consider the following factors:


Cost is one of the main factors when choosing an VoIP telephony provider, as it can significantly impact the costs of a company or household. The cost of VoIP telephony services can vary depending on the tariff plan, number of users, and additional features that the provider offers. Before choosing a provider, it is important to assess your needs and choose a tariff plan that best meets your needs.


Functionality is another important factor when choosing a VoIP telephony provider, as it can impact the usability and efficiency of the system. Before choosing a provider, it is important to determine what features you need. Some providers may offer additional features such as auto-attendant, voicemail, conference calling, and others. Therefore, before choosing a provider, it is important to assess your needs and choose a provider that offers all the necessary features.

Customer service

Customer support is one of the key aspects when choosing an VoIP telephony provider, as it directly affects the speed and quality of resolving problems. When choosing a provider, we recommend reading user reviews on specialized sites or referring to the VoIP telephony provider rating.
