VoIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol. VoIP is an internet-based technology that is commonly used for long-distance communication, and the media used are intranets and the internet.
The workings of VoIP technology itself are the analogue voice that will be taken from the device's speakers and will be converted into data packets. This data packet is then sent using the internet network via a hub/router/ADSL. Then this data packet will be sent to the destination, namely the device receiving the call.
Broadly speaking, the way VoIP works is to convert voice data into digital codes, which will then be streamed through the network that sends data packets. Unlike ordinary telephones that use analogue circuits to make calls.
Then about the function of VoIP. The main function of using VoIP itself is to connect communicators between cities, islands and continents. If it usually costs quite a lot of money to be able to contact friends or family, especially if it's on a different island or country, VoIP is the right solution for this communication.
If you describe VoIP itself, it has 4 different functions which are the advantages of VoIP itself. The first function is Signaling, where VoIP is tasked with receiving the network from the caller, after receiving the network, a conversation occurs in the call. In addition, the voice produced by VoIP technology can be categorized as clearer than normal telephone calls.
Then the next function is Database Service, which is finding the final destination location or End Point. This function also translates IP addresses or IP addresses used in 2 different networks. Another function of VoIP technology is Bearer Control, this function allows users to accept or reject phone calls from the caller. The last function of VoIP is Coded Operation which converts voice into data packets and also converts data packets into voice so that communication can occur between the communicator and the communicant in the call.
How VoIP Works
Then the digital data is sent through the internet network and received by the internet network as well, and with the same media. Another way is to make a telephone connection and forward it to a Phone Adapter that is already connected to the internet network and is received by the destination phone.
Please note that this VoIP technology depends entirely on the quality of the internet network, whether owned by the caller or the recipient of the call. If the internet network of one of the users is disturbed, then the communication activities will also be disrupted and experience intermittent sound.
Currently, several telephone sets can also be connected with VoIP technology, so that callers and telephone recipients can communicate comfortably. The ability of VoIP technology is also connected to the Private Automatic Branch Exchange (PABX), making it possible to make phone calls from a computer device to a telephone or an extension number in the office.
Advantages of VoIP
When compared with conventional telephones, VoIP technology is a more cost-effective communication solution. Because you only need an internet network to be able to connect with your interlocutor. You don't have to be afraid of inflated phone costs when having a conversation, and you also don't have to pay phone bills or anything like that. This is the main attraction of VoIP technology.
Apart from that, another advantage of VoIP is that it can take advantage of the data network infrastructure, so you can make phone calls via audio as well as video. Then the bandwidth is smaller when compared to a regular telephone, besides that VoIP can also be paired with a telephone, making it easier for you to make phone calls.
Disadvantages of VoIP
Apart from the many advantages offered by VoIP technology, VoIP also has its drawbacks. One of them is the quality that is less clear if you have an unstable internet network, and when compared to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) the voice quality of VoIP technology is still less clear.
