‘Going IP’: Everything You Need to Know About an IP Telephony System

Business owners are always looking for ways to improve their bottom line, and one way to do this is by implementing an IP telephony system. But what is IP telephony? What does IP stand for? What are the benefits of using an IP system? And why might you need to change your existing telephony system over to an IP system sooner than you think?

What is IP Telephony?

IP telephony is not new, but thanks to the looming ISDN switch-off the industry is buzzing with talk about it. But what does it mean? IP stands for “Internet Protocol,” and refers to the way that data is transmitted over a network. An IP telephony system uses this protocol to transmit voice and video signals over the internet. This gives businesses a number of advantages, such as cost savings, scalability, and flexibility.


The global pandemic proved to be a boom-time for Voice-over-Internet protocol (VoIP) communications as millions of staff had to begin working remotely. VoIP and related services such as Zoom & Teams became essential for businesses to continue and function. Teleconferencing became the new norm for everyday communication.

What are the Benefits of IP Telephony?

There are many benefits of using an IP telephony system, including:


Cost savings: IP telephony systems can often be less expensive to maintain than traditional phone systems This is because they use the internet to connect calls instead of using costly phone lines.

Flexibility: IP systems are more flexible than traditional phone systems, making it easier to add new features and functionality. It also means that your phone number can travel with you – one number that can be used across multiple devises.

Scalability: IP telephony systems can be easily scaled up or down to meet the changing needs of your business.

Enhanced features: IP telephony systems often offer enhanced features such as voicemail to email, call recording and conference calling.

Completely internet based: VoIP calls can be made and received by any device or mobile phone that is linked to the Internet, this includes VoIP conversations on computers using a microphone and speakers or headsets connected to the computer.

Why is Everyone Talking About IP?

IP is the future of telephony, and many businesses are already making the switch to an IP system as the benefits of IP telephony are hard to ignore. Businesses all across the UK are going to be forced to have an IP telephony system in place by 2025. As the current PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) and ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) are being switched off by July 2025 and replaced by an all-IP network, businesses all across the UK need to switch sooner rather than later.


If you’re thinking about switching to an IP telephony system, now is the time to do it! Not only will you be ahead of the curve, but you’ll also be able to take advantage of all the benefits that IP telephony has to offer right away.
