The VoIP Revolution

By: Parker Norma

More and more persons and companies seem to realize lately that technology is working to their advantage. This is how they've come to discover the numberless opportunities offered by the VoIP technology and how easy it can be to make Pc to Phone calls.

VoIP, meaning Voice over Internet Protocol, is an innovative highly advanced technology that allows audio data transmission by means of an internet connection. The major advantage of the VoIP technology is the possibility to lower the prices very much and maintain a high quality of the Pc to Phone calls at the same time. Thanks to these features, the VoIP technology is now being extensively used not only by large or small companies using Pc to Phone services, but also by lots of individual persons who use Voice Chat or Pc to Phone services. Depending on the VoIP provider, users might need a personal computer, a special VoIP phone or a traditional phone connected to a special adapter. Some VoIP services may only allow you to call other people using the same service, but others are less restrictive and may consent to calling just about anyone who has a phone number, including local, long distance, mobile, and international numbers.

There is no joke or dream. Indeed, anyone can make local, long distance or international Pc to Phone calls, which means that the voice conversation initiated by someone from his personal computer (PC) can be routed over the Internet or through any other IP-based network to a phone. In other words, Pc to Phone means calling a phone number from a Pc with an internet connection. The voice is converted into a digital signal that travels over the Internet. When calling a regular phone number, the signal is converted to a regular telephone signal before it reaches the destination. This is by far the most beneficial service, with large functionality, providing an outstanding quality at the same time.

Pc to Phone service is qualitatively superior to any other voice chat free service. More than that, when using Pc to Phone services, the person at the other end of the "wire" is not compelled to have an internet connection. A simple phone line will do; and if you don't have a phone line in your house, then you can use a public phone booth. However, in order to generate Pc to Phone calls, you need to have a personal computer with a standard internet connection, minimally a dial-up connection. The moment the conversation is started, you must be connected to the internet.

Specialists recommend using headsets when making calls through VoIP services. The model of the headset you want to use is entirely up to your preferences or budget. USB headsets often offer higher quality than sound card headsets, but they are a little bit more expensive on the market. In all cases, do not use desktop speakers for listening to the call. Although the quality may sound fine to you, the people you call will hear a disturbing echo. All in all, the audio quality on the VoIP-based networks is equal to the quality of standard fixed telephone lines. And when minor details, such as always using headsets during conversation, are complied with, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the highest voice quality and the lowest delays in the communication field.
