What is a VoIP phone?

In a simple way to explain, a VoIP phone is a telephone set designed particularly for use in a voice over IP ( VoIP ) system. It converts standard telephone audio into a digital format that can be transmitted over the Internet, and also converting incoming digital phone signals from the Internet to standard telephone audio.

How to choose a VoIP phone?

When choosing your VoIP phone, there are several things you must consider before making a final decision. One particular aspect of the VoIP phone you should pay special attention to is what phone system or VoIP server provider you are using. With the advent of open source phone systems, SIP and BYOD service providers it's easy to think that every IP phone works with every phone system or service. Unfortunately this is not the case so make sure you know what protocols and codec's are supported by your VoIP phone system and VoIP provider.

Other factors to compare across VoIP phones include features and functions that how many incoming calls it can carry at a time.
