Vodafone NZ acquires VoIP specialist WorldxChange
Vodafone New Zealand acquired VoIP and converged service firm WorldxChange for an undisclosed sum, to complement its enterprise business. WorldxChange, set up in 2000, is a specialist in converged unified communications services and provides You Can Have Multi-Party and Conference Calling – Virtually all VoIP providers offer a service better than the conventional 3-way calling service found with land line and cellular phones. Instead of being limited to only 2 other people in the conversation, you can have as many as you like, because using the internet as the method of delivery with this technology is multidimensional, as opposed to the others which are 2-dimensional. With VoIP, you can use it for conference calls and teleseminars with relative ease. VoIP is an excellent idea for businesses, especially those who transact with others overseas.
When we make a VoIP call, a communication channel is established between caller and called party over IP (Internet Protocol) which runs on top of computer data networks. A telephony conversation that takes place over VoIP are converted into binary data packets streams in real time and transmitted over data network, when these data packets arrive at the destination these are again converted into standard telephony conversation. This whole process of voice conversion into data, transmission and data conversion into back voice conversation takes place within less than few milliseconds. That is how a VoIP is call is works over data networks. I hope that now you understand basics of how a VoIP call takes place.
