What is a VoIP Phone and How Does It Work?

A VoIP phone, or Voice over Internet Protocol phone, is a device that allows you to make voice calls using the internet rather than traditional telephone lines.

How It Works

VoIP Phone (Voice over Internet Protocol)

Digital Conversion

Your voice is converted into digital data (packets) by the VoIP phone.

Data Packet Routing

Internet routers direct these data packets to their destination using the most efficient path available.

Conversion to Analog

At the receiving end, the digital data is converted back into an analog audio signal so that the recipient can hear your voice.
