When the analysts at Persistence Market Research (PMR) announced earlier this summer that the global VoIP services market would more than double over the next eight years it re-affirmed what many of Verizon’s customers already know - there are compelling reasons for businesses to adopt the use of VoIP.


To understand the reason for this trend, it is important to understand what VoIP is.


The Federal Communications Commission defines VoIP as follows:


“VoIP is a technology that allows you to make voice calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line. … VoIP services convert your voice into a digital signal that travels over the Internet. If you are calling a regular phone number, the signal is converted to a regular telephone signal before it reaches the destination.”


The technology has evolved and become even more flexible over the last 20 years. Taking advantage of Verizon’s 100% fiber optic network, Verizon provides a crystal clear and reliable VoIP service to business customers.


The features are transformational. For example, with Verizon’s data and voice services, you can program calls to be forwarded from your landline to your mobile device. You can even transfer an existing landline call to a mobile device. And there is another feature for the business owner that shouldn’t be taken for granted—if there is a power outage related to weather, VoIP-based services can route the call to a number designated by the owner.


Such services help put a big business face on your company, so you don’t have to miss a call from an existing or potential customer. From that perspective alone, Verizon offers a powerful stimulus for the growth of your business.


Not surprisingly, some analysts suggest that the adoption of VoIP is being driven by the fact that this technology can help make “a business grow fast and in a more economical way.” Verizon’s VoIP-based service is a powerful example of that technology and the potential it holds.
