VoIP (voice over internet protocol) is a technology that enables you to use your Internet connection to carry your phone service. VoIP technology is new and important because it holds the promise of significant savings and greater efficiency.

The ability to send phone calls over data networks was once looked upon as a futuristic dream, but it is fast becoming the hottest telecom technology. Transporting voice services over an existing data network can reduce costs significantly and streamline operations by enabling one infrastructure to handle voice, data, and integrated services. The emergence of VoIP means that the slow expensive circuit switching methods of the past will give way forever to a future of fast, efficient packet switching networks equally capable of handling voice or data.
