Chennai, India (PressExposure) July 06, 2009 -- The Internet has totally changed telecommunications as we know it. With an IP (Internet Protocol) phone installed with your office VoIP phone system, you can place calls over the Internet at a more affordable price. It is an effective solution for small businesses aiming to create a communications system cheaper than that provided by traditional phone service providers.
Phones operating over VoIP lines must be compatible with an SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) in order for it to operate over the Internet. Depending on your business needs, you can either spend money on an expensive VoIP phone or just have your traditional business phone reconfigured to be compatible with SIP.
Lastly, you can use your computer with a standard headset to make calls. The simple software-based SoftPhone from RingCentral gives your computer telephone capabilities. This software lets you dial directly from your desktop at a lower price than that of a traditional phone line.
Through RingCentral, VoIP calling over an IP phone or SoftPhone requires no hardware installation. You also get to use additional functions that an analog phone can't support, including fax-to-email, easier system management and real-time call logs, all available with just a click of a mouse.
