In many ways, using an IP phone system for your business is the same experience as using a regular telephone system. The differences are that you get a bundle of advanced features, and your bill is cheaper than traditional landline phone systems.

You may be asking, ìHow is it possible to pay less and get more?î The answer is in the technology behind the scenes. A voice over IP phone system (or VoIP) uses a different technology to transmit audio. IP stands for Internet protocol, meaning your voice signal is digitized and travels over the Internet to complete the call. A detailed explanation of how your VoIP call is placed describes whatís going on behind the scenes, but the user experience of placing and receiving a call is the same.
How Does an Enterprise IP Phone System Work?
The Ooma Office base station is the router-like device you will use to establish your system. To use the base station, youíll plug it into both your analog phone line and the high-speed Internet port. This is how your IP phone system will bridge calls between analog phone lines and digital voice transmission.
For each phone line, an employee can connect to the base station using their preferred device. They can use an analog desk phone like the one they were previously using with a traditional phone system. Or to take advantage of HD call quality, you can plug an IP phone into the base station. Youíll see these Cisco and Yealink brand IP phones listed with our business features, and though they look similar to traditional phones, they are built to handle the capacity of HD audio quality. For conference calls, there are also IP-based conference phone systems that can be used to outfit your meeting room with HD audio speakers and microphones so your group calls are crystal clear.
Additional phones can be connected wirelessly using an Ooma Linx device that is included in the starter pack. The base station can accommodate four phone lines, and a total of 20 phone lines can be routed through a single base station by using a network of expansion base stations.
Employees can also use the Ooma Office phone system via our mobile app. Similar to the IP phones, the app delivers HD-quality audio, but the best part of the app is that youíll be able to make and receive calls as though you were at your desk phone. There is no need to provide multiple phone numbers to clients and explain when to use each number. Itís one office number all the time. Employees can choose to keep both a desk phone and the app for their phone line, but if they telecommute, they can solely use the mobile app for their business calls.
Benefits to Using VoIP for Your Business
The first major benefit for using enterprise-level VoIP phone systems is the cost savings. Ooma Officeís monthly service costs 66% less than traditional small business landlines like Verizon offers. That means your bills will go down, but as weíll explain, youíll also get more features.
Using a VoIP phone system will also give you access to high-quality audio. Ooma uses an advanced voice compression algorithm to deliver crystal-clear calls at only a fraction of the bandwidth that other VoIP technologies use, giving you an unprecedented level of realism to your phone conversations. While traditional phone lines have technical limitations on the sound quality of a cell phone or landline, VoIP calls are transmitted digitally, so they do not have the same quality restrictions.
Depending on your businessí needs, Ooma Office phones has many additional features that add enormous value to your phone system.
