Connect to VoIP, without the PC!

Some people have that misconception that VoIP is making telephone calls over a computer connected to the internet.  Everyone knows that this no longer true at all, especially in 2019 about the old stereotype about VoIP. There are plenty of  ways to make a VoIP telephone, and without the need of a computer’s speaker and microphone.

Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT)

A telephone uses a single base station to connect multiple cordless handsets to the internet to make VoIP calls. Handsets usually have their own charging station but don’t need to be plugged into a phone socket. DECT phones are ideal for small businesses as it is easy to add or remove handsets without making changes to office infrastructure.

Voice Over the internet Phone (VoIP)

A ‘classic’ VoIP desk phone looks and behaves a lot like a standard business desktop phone – except that it connects to your local area network (LAN) and your PC. This type of phone usually has similar features to a DECT phone – but because it is a corded phone there’s more room for buttons so they can be easier and more familiar to use.

ATA (analogue telephone adaptor)

An ATA is a device that connects a PSTN phone with a VoIP service. By plugging a phone line cable into one outlet, and a VoIP or Ethernet cable into another outlet, a ‘traditional’ PSTN telephone can be used to make and receive calls via the internet. This solution is ideal for individuals or organisations who do not wish to replace their existing phone handsets.

Soft (VoIP) telephone

which is application driven software to help run VoIP on mobile devices such as a iphone, tablet, and even the computer. The best known VoIP soft phone is Skype, and a soft phone is ideal for use ‘on the go’, for example installed on a laptop and used to make and receive VoIP calls while travelling.
