Revolutionary changes have taken hold in telecommunications and computer networking. At the leading edge of convergence between these fields are IP phones - Voice over IP or VoIP (Internet Protocol) or VoIP telephones.

The difference between an IP phone system and a traditional telephone system is that IP systems use your business computer network via Ethernet and in some cases the Internet (for off-premise extensions) to connect to an IP phone system while standard digital telephone systems utilize traditional Cat 6E phone cables to link the extensions to the main control cabinet (KSU).
When you speak into a IP phone, your voice is converted to an electronic signal which is then broken down into packets, compressed, and sent toward their final destination by various routes depending on the most efficient paths on your data network or the internet. At the receiving end, the VoIP packets are reassembled, decompressed and converted back into a voice signal by hardware and software.
Cisco Unified IP Phones offer the high-quality, reliable communications your business needs every day. They also add new capabilities that increase your ability to collaborate within the workplace.
Thanks to network integration, these phones are easy to install, manage, and update. Our broad portfolio can help you improve productivity, foster collaboration, and reduce operating expenses.
