VoIP and IP Telephony: Is there a Difference?

When it comes to telecommunication, there are several terms that can be confusing or interchanged depending on who you are talking to. One combination of these terms includes VoIP and IP telephony. While the terms are often interchangeable when used, it is important to understand the difference between the two terms. This is because the difference in the terms can have an impact on the business telephone system you choose.

The big difference in the two terms is that VoIP is dependent of IP telephony. The purpose of IP telephony is to help increase the productivity of a business by using technology. VoIP is a vehicle used to place phone calls for your business, which holds benefits in its helpful features and budget-friendly cost. In other words, VoIP is a stepping stone of the larger IP telephony picture. VoIP uses a data network within an IP network to connect phone calls at a lower cost to your business. IP telephony helps to manage the data traffic of your business to prevent a lacking quality to your system. Avaya is known to provide a package that includes both to businesses.
