Unlike a regular telephone that uses landlines to transmit analog signals, IP phones connect to the internet via a router and modem. Voice and data integration is possible by implementing IP phone systems on the IP data network. The management costs are reduced by having a single point of management. IP video telephony has been changing the way communications are being made, which brings the value of video to telephony and vice versa. IP video telephony can be achieved by providing interactive video over an IP network that converges voice, video, and data traffic all over a common path. IP video telephony gives choices and controls over how to communicate, what methods to communicate, and when to communicate via telephone or video and voice. By using remote access tools, IP video telephony gives choices on where to communicate, which gives employees the ability to work anywhere at any time, increasing employees work quality and efficiency plus the added flexibility of IP video telephony can offer lifestyle benefits to employees.
