What is VoIP?
VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. As the name suggests, this is a technology that is used to transmit voice (mostly) or other multimedia data over the internet protocols.
Users can make VoIP calls by using special VoIP based phones, computers software (called softphone), or mobile device. When you have a good internet connection, you can make a voice call no matter where you are. You can even make a VoIP call by using your web browser that has a feature of WebRTC (Web Real Time Communication).
VoIP technology offers so many other features which are not available on traditional phones, or if they are available, they will be paid. VoIP calling is beneficial for both customers and clients as it enables you to stay in touch even when you are on the road.
To make VoIP calls, there is no need to get special cords to the desk of the user like we have to do in case of traditional telephones. If you have a stable and high speed internet setup, you are good to make a VoIP call anytime, anywhere.
Why Structured Data Cabling?
Since, it requires internet connection, so its quality and clarity depends on the speed of internet and the cabling structure that you have.
When we are using VoIP, we can transmit voice, data, video, graphics, and all other types of multimedia. So, we need a good voice data and structured cabling company to install the cables and other required equipment.
For simple voice communication, the standards and design of the cabling has not been changed since last 20 years. It is understood what should be the design and the structure of the cables for voice services.
But when it comes to voice, data, music, video, intercom and other types of data transfers, design of structured cabling has changed during last 2 decades. Now you should be only looking for a professional and certified commercial audiovisual integration and data cabling service.
The professional structured cabling company will make sure to use the latest equipment that can provide 99.9999% uptime connectivity. They will also use the routers and cables which support high bandwidth to manage the latest VoIP features.
For example, an ordinary service provider may use Category 5 or CAT5 cable for your voice and data cabling. This cable has the capacity to transmit 125MHz. Whereas, a professional and expert service provider will always use the latest category 6 or CAT6 cable that can transmit 250MHz data.
They will also provide low power or low voltage solutions so that you can continue your meeting if you face a low power issue. When you hire a professional commercial audiovisual integration and data cabling company, you will get 99.999% uptime in your VoIP calls, low cost on a long-term basis, and a flexible system that could be upgraded any time. You will also be able to add new features and new equipment without changing your current cabling system.
