VOIP business phone system Doha Qatar generally have dedicated buttons for redial, transfer, conference, hold, mute, voicemail, and speakerphone. These buttons are set along the side of the number pad. VOIP business phone system Doha Qatar and other business phones use these features almost universally. That said, VOIP business phone system Doha Qatar are capable of HD voice, while other business phones are not.
HD Voice offers at least twice the audio range of landline phone service. The spread for landline voice quality is 3.4 kHz (3400 Hz), but the spread for HD voice is 7 kHz (7000 Hz). In other words, the quality of your calls will be much higher using two VOIP business phone system Doha Qatar than two traditional phones.
Many VOIP business phone system Doha Qatar also support Power over Ethernet (PoE), which allows you to power the phone through a PoE switch instead of a power adapter.

VoIP phone toggle buttons
VOIP business phone system Doha Qatar handle calls differently than other business phones. Above, the buttons in the yellow rectangle are the toggle buttons. VOIP business phone system Doha Qatar allow you to pick between current, incoming and held calls using the toggle buttons. These buttons rarely appear on landline phones.
On landline phones, each “line” corresponds to a phone number. Landline phones can juggle multiple calls among corresponding copper lines, and you switch between these calls with the line buttons (in the green rectangle above) on the phone. If you have five lines for your business, that means your phone can take calls from five different phone numbers.
VOIP business phone system Doha Qatar, on the other hand, do not have “lines” in the traditional sense. Instead of being tied to a phone number, each ‘line’ on a VoIP phone is tied to a SIP address or user account. Depending on your phone model, your phone may be able to handle multiple user accounts simultaneously. This means you can take calls from multiple accounts and different phone numbers on your VoIP phone.
Chances are good you’re already making VoIP calls any time you place a long-distance call. Phone companies use VoIP to streamline their networks. By routing thousands of phone calls through a circuit switch and into an IP gateway, they can seriously reduce the bandwidth they’re using for the long haul. Once a gateway receives the call on the other side of the call, it’s decompressed, reassembled and routed to a local circuit switch.
Although it will take some time, you can be sure that eventually all of the current circuit-switched networks will be replaced with packet-switching technology (more on packet switching and circuit switching later). IP Telephony PBX PBA Doha Qatar makes sense, in terms of both economics and infrastructure requirements. More and more businesses are installing VoIP systems, and the technology will continue to grow in popularity as it makes its way into our homes. Perhaps the biggest draw to VoIP for the home users that are making the switch are price and flexibility.
With VoIP, you can make a call from anywhere you have broadband connectivity. Since the IP phones or ATAs broadcast their info over the Internet, they can be administered by the provider anywhere there’s a connection. So business travellers can take their phones or ATAs with them on trips and always have access to their home phone. Another alternative is the softphone. A softphone is client software that loads the VoIP service onto your desktop or laptop. The Vonage softphone has an interface on your screen that looks like a traditional telephone. As long as you have a headset/microphone, you can place calls from your laptop anywhere in the broadband-connected world.
Most VoIP companies are offering minute-rate plans structured like cell phone bills for as little as $30 per month. On the higher end, some offer unlimited plans for $79. With the elimination of unregulated charges and the suite of free features that are included with these plans, it can be quite a savings.
