The Evolution of Voice Technology from Analog to Digital
We have seen how photography has moved from film to digital and television from analog to digital. Voice technology has also followed that route – evolving from analog to digital.
Analog telephone landlines are disappearing in the wake of cellphone technology and recently, the emergence of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) has taken over business communications by storm. VoIP offers powerful features that analog can’t match.
What is VoIP?
Voice over Internet Protocol is a digital technology for voice and multimedia communications over the internet. Instead of being transmitted over a circuit-switched telephone line network, the digital information is packetized and transmitted over a packet-switched network.
Why is VoIP Better than Analog?
Analog systems over telephone lines have been the mainstay for businesses for decades. The system has many functions, but has expansion limitations.
According to CoreDial, VoIP allows businesses to add such advanced features as voicemail and fax delivery to email, music on hold, alarm systems and can be integrated with messaging and social networking. VoIP is a reliable, fast and efficient network, compared to the old analog phone lines that have proved to be slow, clunky and unreliable.
VoIP Allows a Customized System

A PBX (Private Branch Exchange) is the private phone system within your business. The business owner can set up, configure and tailor the system to suit your company’s needs right from your computer.
