What is VoIP

Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP)

VoIP is an emerging technology that allows telephone calls, faxes, or overhead paging to be transported over an existing IP data network topology. Traditionally, voice and data were carried over separate networks optimized to suit the differing characteristics of voice and data traffic. With advances in technology, it is now possible to carry voice and data over the same networks while still catering for the different characteristics required by voice and data. This provides for the addition of new voice communications products without the need for installing new cabling.

The VoIP network could be:
A Local Area Network
A Wide Area Network
A Corporate Intranet
Or any combination of the above

Why Are VoIP Solutions Less Costly To Install Than Other Communications Alternatives?

IP is the predominate networking protocol used globally. It presents a huge opportunity to dispense with separate voice and data networks and use IP technology for voice traffic as well as data. As voice and data network technologies merge, massive infrastructure cost savings can be made as the need to provide separate networks for voice and data can be eliminated. VoIP uses connectionless, or packet, switching during a conversation. There is no telling what path each packet might take to get to its destination. Once transmitted these packets are reassembled into their original order at the remote locations. Today’s high bandwidth routers and network components provide ample capacity to reliably transmit voice and data over the same backbone. This is why Valcom is manufacturing a variety of IP Solutions products which provide users with a host of added communications benefits without needing expensive new cabling to operate.
