Technically speaking, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) uses Internet Protocol (IP) to route voice packets over an IP network. IP is simply a large group of specifications that define how data is transmitted over a data network. A data network does not require a constant connection like phone lines do so they tend to work more efficiently. By using VoIP, voice can be transmitted across any type of IP network such as the Internet, an intranet, or a LAN. Simply speaking, VoIP is a simple and inexpensive way to make and receive phone calls using your Internet connection rather than your standard phone line. We convert your Efonica softphone calls into data that speeds through your Internet connection, arriving at the other end sounding like a regular phone call.
