What is an IP telephony system (VoIP)?
Increasingly democratized in companies of all sizes, especially those that are developing internationally, IP telephony is a technology that transmits voice signals over IP or via the Internet. In simpler terms, communication takes place through the network of the internet.
Before the advent of this technology, telephones within a company had to be connected to a common telephone exchange called a PABX. Its mission was to route communications to the external ISDN network using copper lines. Each line manages a maximum of 2 calls. Subsequently, to be able to establish ten or a hundred calls, it is therefore necessary to install several copper wires over kilometers. The congestion caused by such infrastructures, which also age quickly over time and are expensive, amply justifies the use of VoIP as a telephony solution.
Moreover, with the large-scale evolution of the Internet network, relying on such a network to make calls is not only reliable, but also secure and less restrictive. There is no longer any hesitation in switching to VoIP telephony, in particular Aircall IP telephony, the best option for manage the commercial pipe well.
How Does a VoIP Phone System Work?
As its acronym suggests, Voice Over Internet Protocol telephony refers to the transmission of voice over the Internet Protocol. In reality, it works on the principle of converting voice signals into thousands of digital data which will be sent in data packets to the internet network using a router. This data will then be converted back to the same network until it reaches its destination.
VoIP telephony not only allows voice messages, calls and instant video chats to be transmitted, but also text and e-mail. It has the same functions as traditional PBX call solutions: voice mail, transfer of incoming / outgoing calls, caller ID, conference call.
And unlike the latter, IP telephony can easily be integrated with so-called CRM business management software. This explains the fact that Aircall can be integrated with HubSpot CRM and give you the opportunity to manage everything from a single platform.
