VoIP vs. Landline: Which is Better? - Trueway

Traditional landlines are analog systems. With analog systems, sound is transmitted across a wire through electrical pulses. These analog systems require installation with a phone provider. Upon receiving an installation request, your provider will lay wires at your location to support the use of your analog system.

Traditional landlines can be used in private residences or businesses. If a business requests landline installation but will require several lines, the provider will create a Private Branch Exchange (PBX) to support multi-line calls. A PBX is essentially an internal private network.

With traditional landline installation, users will experience some limitations. Analog systems do not support fast-paced, flexible telecommunications; once your wires have been placed, you are bound to that physical location. Landline systems do not support mobile or remote work.

Unlike traditional analog systems, VoIP systems deliver voice communication over the internet. VoIP systems convert analog signals to digital signals; as long as the user has a broadband internet connection, they can use their VoIP system any time anywhere. Why? Because these systems are cloud-based.
