Las Vegas, NV, May 11, 2005 --(PR.com
)-- Lasvegas.net now introduces a voice over internet protocol (VoIP) for your home or office.
VoIP is the ability to convert voice or fax calls into data packets for transmission over the Internet or other IP-based networks. Unlike traditional phone calls, where the conversation is converted into electronic signals that traverse an elaborate network of switches, in a dedicated circuit that lasts the duration of a call. VoIP works by converting the conversation into packets of data that travel over the Internet or private networks, just like e-mails or Web pages, though voice packets get priority status. The packets get reassembled and converted to sound on the other end of the call.
Voice over IP makes long distance calls cheaper by removing some of the access charges required for use of the public telephone network. A user's physical location also becomes irrelevant; Las Vegas lets people choose their area code and possess multiple area codes in different cities that all ring to the same phone. VoIP also enables Las Vegasís advanced features -- like checking voice mail from a Web page or programming call-forwarding through a web tool.
Plans start at $14.99 for home based, and $39.99 for your business. When you purchase a plan, you get the Las Vegas ATA (Analog Telephone Adaptor) free*. The Las Vegas ATA brings traditional telephones to the networked world. It is a handset-to-Ethernet adaptor that interfaces regular analog telephones with IP-based telephony networks.
According to an article released by Yahoo News citing In-Stat on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2005 in this article: http://news.yahoo.com/s/nf/20050503/tc_nf/34036, the period in which consumers and small business owners will switch to VoIP will be from 2005-2009. They also say that the migration to VoIP will have itís highest peak somewhere from 2010-2014. Las Vegas residents can take advantage of using new technology through VoIP instead of traditional phones calls.
