VoIP infrastructure

The number of VoIP users is growing amongst businesses because it is convenient to utilize internet connections for voice traffic. All you need is an infrastructure for operating VoIP traffic. The exact components of a successful VoIP infrastructure depend on what you already have in place and your demands.

What is VoIP infrastructure?

VoIP infrastructure consists of physical and software components you need for voice over internet protocol to function. A successful VoIP infrastructure provides a flawless transport system for voice traffic (or other media) regardless of the physical location.

The components of a voice network infrastructure are

  • Enough bandwidth – every call needs a dedicated bandwidth ‘chunk’ to secure smooth transfer; if you do not have enough bandwidth, packets can drop off, meaning that call quality goes down or you have delays. To avoid that, you can go for a hybrid version and use a dedicated and a broadband internet connection (use a software defined, SD service for that) or ask your internet provider for guaranteed bandwidth.
  • VoIP provider – choose a reliable service provider for fulfilling your voice network business needs (there are many VoIP providers offering services, contact a VoIP vendor and discuss your Voice network needs, alternatively you can opt for a private network in house and set up your system on premises). Download VoIP providers software and follow the instructions.
  • A VoIP phone that uses IP (this can be a hard phone or a software phone that runs as an app or a business phone with multiple lines and functions) – connect with an ethernet cable to a router or modem, on WIFI with a wireless adapter. Or else use a regular phone with a VoIP phone adapter – connected to your PC or modem.
