The problem with talking about VoIP
VoIP is one of those technologies we’ve all been hearing and reading about for so many years now. It’s gotten to the point that you rarely see a discussion of how VoIP works or even what it is anymore. So let’s take a few steps back, walk through the very basics, and answer the question: how does VoIP work?
What does VoIP mean?
VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. As the name suggests, it is a set of technologies designed to transmit voice communications (in other words, phone calls) over the internet. This is why you also see VoIP phone service described as internet phone service sometimes. The easiest way to think of VoIP is that it’s what lets you place and receive phone calls using an internet connection rather than over a traditional phone line.
How does VoIP work for business?
By using VoIP, your company can turn the internet service you are already paying for into the backbone of a robust business phone system that costs far less than a traditional telecommunications solution.
VoIP service also gives your team more flexibility than you have with a standard phone system. With VoIP, your employees can take and make calls anywhere using their business numbers from their office phones, desktop computers, laptops, even from their personal smartphones.
You can even leverage VoIP to unify your company’s other communication protocols—text messaging, online faxing, video conferencing, etc.—onto a single platform. This means you won’t need to support several different tools and pay separate vendors to address your needs.
So how does VoIP work?
A comprehensive discussion of the technical details of VoIP can get very complicated, so here’s an explanation for us non-techies.
VoIP takes a standard analog phone call—the type most homes and businesses still make today over the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN)—and converts that analog call into digital packets. Then, rather than traveling over the standard phone network, those packets are transmitted across the internet to the other parties on the call. Voice packets of a VoIP calls travel over the internet just like any other type of digital data, such as an email message or a file being uploaded to your favorite cloud storage app.
What does a VoIP system do?
A VoIP phone system allows you to integrate more of your company’s business communications into a single solution, rather than leaving you to manage many different communication tools and vendors—which don’t always work well together.
With out non VoIP system you can do all of the above, and let you free your staff from being tied to their desks because their office phone numbers will no longer be limited to any particular phone. For example, with the ConXhub, you can give your team the ability to make business calls using just their mobile phone.
In addition to full softphone capability, the ConXhub app gives your staff a single interface for other communication services they likely use every day—such as team messaging and collaboration, file sharing, task management, and online meetings.
With the ConXhub mobile app, your team can also enjoy all of this unified communications functionality—21st century technology non VoIP phone calls, texting, conferencing, online meetings, even team messaging and collaboration—from a single app on their smartphones.
In other words, this mind blowing non VoIP system acts as a full-scale cloud PBX (or even more than that in the case of ConXhub), allowing your team to easily manage calls and other communications features, including auto attendants with recorded greetings, advanced call routing and forwarding services, virtual voicemail, and even online faxing.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of VoIP?
For small and midsize businesses, VoIP phone services can offer many benefits over their traditional counterparts. For example:
VoIP improves mobility for remote and on-the-go employees.
One of the most common reasons small companies choose VoIP phones is that these businesses are extremely mobile—they tend to have remote teams, employees who might need to work from home, and reps who spend most of their time out in the field.
VoIP phones (including other devices equipped with softphone capability) are ideal for these organizations because they allow employees to work from anywhere while still using their business phone numbers.
VoIP makes businesses’ communication systems more flexible and scalable.
Another major advantage of VoIP is that it gives businesses far more flexibility than traditional business phone systems. For example, because VoIP phones don’t require copper wires or other phone hardware, businesses can more easily add phone service lines or extensions as their teams grow.
VoIP also offers flexibility and scalability when a business changes locations or expands and opens new offices. With traditional analog phone services, developments such as these would necessitate acquiring and installing more wires and business phone hardware. With VoIP phone service, setting up a new office location is simple and can all be managed in the cloud.
VoIP’s any-device, anywhere communication services improve business productivity.
Businesses also find that a VoIP service helps boost company productivity significantly. Just think about this: sales reps who need to be out in the field can spend their time meeting with prospects and clients without worrying about missing important phone calls on their business numbers because (as we’ve already mentioned before) they’ll be able to take those calls from wherever they are.
Some alternative VoIP phone services, such as ConXhub, can also help you increase productivity in other ways. For example, ConXhub lets your employees integrate their VoIP phone service with the productivity apps they use every day.
This means your staff is enabled to work on their tasks and projects more efficiently, without having to constantly switch between different tools and platforms from different vendors— ConXhub supports all of these communication and productivity services with a unified platform.
VoIP systems allow businesses to minimize phone costs.
Finally, the catalyst that brings most small businesses to the point of considering VoIP phone service in the first place is the fact that it can result in a significant reduction in a company’s communication costs.
Analog business phone systems often include high recurring service fees and high per-minute costs for long-distance and international phone calls.
VoIP, by contrast, has far lower ongoing costs, usually allows businesses to call long distance at local rates, and often includes other services, such as online faxing and video calls.
Of course, it can also have its drawbacks—particularly for firms that do not deploy it correctly or don’t select the right provider. For example:
VoIP requires an internet connection.
VoIP transmits voice calls (and other forms of communication, such as video and texts) via Internet Protocol. This means that for your VoIP phone service to function, you will need a reliable, high-bandwidth internet connection.
Assuming your office has high-speed and reliable internet service, this likely won’t be an issue. But because this is one way in which VoIP service can be limited, it’s still worth keeping in mind as a potential drawback.
It should also be noted that VoIP providers who serve companies generally include fail-safe solutions in the event that your internet connection is compromised for whatever reason.

Not every VoIP vendor offers data security.
As you’ve no doubt learned from past sensational news headlines about major corporations’ emails being hacked, data traversing the internet is not necessarily secure.
A potential drawback of VoIP service, if you choose the wrong provider, is lack of security for your company’s data.
This can raise all sorts of questions for a small business that’s considering switching their communications to VoIP protocol. Could our voice calls be overheard by eavesdroppers? Could other data we send over our VoIP system—like texts or faxes—be intercepted? Will our VoIP communications comply with our industry’s data privacy laws?
These are all important questions to ask before switching to VoIP. The simplest and most effective answer, though, is to choose a VoIP provider with proven security and compliance expertise.
Learn how to use VoIP
In a manner of speaking, VoIP has flexibility in the sense that, if used as part of a cloud PBX service, it can route calls to almost any device you choose: a standard desktop phone, a dedicated VoIP desk phone, or even a smartphone or computer. But if you’re not relying on call routing or answering rules, it’s very important that you ensure your devices are configured to work with your provider’s service.
Dedicated VoIP phones (also called IP phones).
A VoIP phone looks like a standard desktop business phone but with an Ethernet connector and/or Wi-Fi capability rather than having a connector to a standard phone port. This makes it so that it can be connected to a router in your home or office. But it must be noted that these phones need to be configured to work with your VoIP service.
VoIP service can also work with a smartphone, which we’ll explain next.
How does VoIP work with a mobile phone?
You can use VoIP software installed on your mobile phone to turn that device into your VoIP phone. This means you can use your personal mobile phone, for example, to place or receive calls (or even text messages) using your business phone number simply by activating your VoIP provider’s app on that mobile phone. To callers on the other end, it will always appear that you are on your “business phone” because that is the number they will see.
How does VoIP work with a computer?
VoIP works with computers (desktops, laptops, tablets) similar to the way it works with mobile phones. With your VoIP provider’s software installed, you can turn a computer into a phone for the purposes of taking and making calls using your VoIP business phone number. To place or receive a VoIP call on your computer, you can use the VoIP program’s phone keypad and other features alongside either the computer’s built-in microphone or a headset.
What happens to our existing business numbers when we switch to VoIP service?
When you switch from your existing phone provider to a VoIP service you can “port” your existing numbers over to your new service, no matter how many phone numbers your business has. You can keep your local numbers, toll-free numbers, landline and wireless numbers, and even international numbers in many countries.
In other words, when you upgrade to a VoIP business phone system, you do not need to lose the business phone numbers your employees, customers, vendors, and partners are accustomed to using.
