That is truly the power of VoIP. There are many routes to make use VoIP for small business, one route is IP termination.
VoIP IP Termination
If your business uses Asterisk, VoIPSwitch, or any other kind of VoIP software to call, then this is for you. All you have to do is hunt down a wholesale termination provider which will give you the routes. Then you setup your switch to send calls through your provider. This is called IP termination. This technology will allow you to use your office phones to call but you will need special phones. These are called IP phones and can be found for about $50. If you are not liking this solution then the next one is Internet Calling.
This is one of the easiest solutions to use but not the best for big businesses that are interconnected because you can’t call Extensions to reach your different departments. This requires a computer as well because you need to use a SoftPhone software to make the calls. All that is required is SIP settings from your VoIP provider and you are set to make calls.
