VoIP is a new way of communicating that’s changing how we use the phone.
While VoIP and Wi-Fi are two different technologies, together, they create a powerful communications combination.
Many businesses today run IP networks over wireless technology and it’s now possible to run VoIP applications over Wi-Fi, too. Now you can merge Wi-Fi with VoIP, producing one of the oddest acronyms you’ll ever see. VoWiFi, or Voice over Wireless Fidelity, simply means a Wi-Fi based VoIP service. Or simply a wireless based VoIP system.
Where VoIP consists of the hardware and software that enables people to use the Internet as the transmission medium for telephone calls, VoWiFi is the wireless version of this technology that is designed to work on wireless devices such as a laptop or PDA. If you have a wireless router and network, then you can use your VoIP phone in a wireless way. And the best part, it wont cost you a penny more.
Working from Home
If you work from home and your router is in the main room of the house, making business calls from you VoIP phone system could prove tricky when your family are at home. Not only is it inconvenient for you but it doesn’t give a good impression to your clients when you’re trying to close a deal with Sponge Bob Square Pants playing in the background!!
Mobile phones are great but they don’t have all the added features of your office VoIP telephone system. VoIP provides more reliable coverage indoors and higher voice quality than traditional mobile service. Sometimes you just need to be able to work from anywhere as though you’re sitting in your own office.
