All of the phones connect through an ethernet switch to the iPECS Phone server, the phone server then connects through the firewall and out over the internet. The phone server provides you with the same call and trunk savings that you can get through CVS but with added functionality. Like CVS (Cloud Voice Server), the “IP” in VoIP phone system refers to Voice over “Internet Protocol”, or having your phone calls routed over the internet or your local network (LAN). This is great for many reasons. First of all, you don’t have to use your telephony service provider for making calls, which will reduce your costs for phone calls. At the same time you benefit from the technical advantages VoIP technology offer your business.
Users of an In-House VoIP phone system simply plug their IP phone into the nearest LAN port. Then, your VoIP phone registers automatically on your on-site VoIP phone system. The IP phone always keeps its number, and behaves exactly the same way, no matter where you plug it in – on your desk, in the office next door or on a tropical island.
This is all possible through the SIP (Session Initiation) protocol. A standard widely used by ISPs, VoIP phone systems and VoIP phones world-wide. It makes expensive proprietary phones obsolete, and helps create an environment where all devices connected to your LAN can talk to each other.
