What is a Hosted VoIP?

Voice over internet protocol, simply called VoIP, is a technology that lets users make and receive phone communications using an existing internet connection. Rather than use a standard phone line, a VoIP-hosted phone system lets you call and communicate with others wherever you are from a cloud communication suite.

Such a system combines the features of business phones with that of texting and video conferencing. A fully managed phone system such as this provides schools with greater accessibility, flexibility, and scalability.
