How does Mobile VoIP Works?
Our Mobile VoIP works service with any mobile phone that has 3G, 4G, GSM, as well as any other internet service to send the voice calls as digital signals over the voice over the internet IP technology. It also uses the Wi-Fi hotspots as a way to minimize the calling costs of a data plan or cellular voice. Today, several technologies have made it possible to integrate a mobile handset into a VoIP network.
For instance, one of the technologies used will turn the mobile device into a SIP session initiation protocol) client. When this is done, this technology makes use of the data network to send and receive the SIP messaging. For the voice path, it utilized the data network to send and receive RTP (Real Time Transport Protocol).
While using the above technology, the handset needs to support the IP communication with the minimal possible capability. This technology allows the SIP to be used over any broadband IP-capable wireless network connection including 3G, EVDO Rev A as well as Wi-Fi.
Another technology used has a soft switch like the gateway that is utilized in bridging the SIP and the RTP into SS7 (Signaling System No. 7) mobile network infrastructure. In this way, the advanced SIP-based service controls the SIP application, allowing fast and convenient communication. During the exchange of communication, the voice signal is normally converted into data packets, travel through the VoIP platform and finally converted to a voice at the receiving end.
