Q. How does Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology work?
A. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology for communicating using “Internet protocol” instead of traditional analog systems. VoIP converts the voice signal from your telephone into a digital signal that can travel over the Internet. If you are calling a regular telephone number, the signal is then converted back at the other end.
Q. What will the transition be like from my current on-premise phone system to Hosted IP phone service?
A. It’s easy to switch to Hosted IP phone service. We’ll do everything possible to make it a smooth, seamless transition for your business. Since Hosted IP service can be delivered over your company’s existing broadband Internet connection, all you need are business phones and we lease those to you.

A. It absolutely does. With its flexibility and scalability, Hosted IP phone service can be a smart choice for a small “mom and pop” business all the way up to a large enterprise.
