What Is A Skype Wifi Phone?

Nov 27, 2007
With the rapid advancement in the field of networking and communication, now it is possible to have voice conversation with other people through internet. The device used in voice conversation over internet is called VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) which is the routing of voice conversation over IP enabled network.

With the demand of wireless network on the rise it is now possible to design a kind of a mobile phone which can be used to communicate between two nodes using the same wireless network.
Skype phone is a cellular phone used in the context of wi-fi network, which is used to make free call to other users provided he also uses Skype device.

Though the Skype uses Wi-fi network to communicate with other Skype devices, it is not possible to enable this device in any wi-fi enabled spot. These spots must be secured with standards such as WEP or WPA.

There are immense benefits one can draw by using the Skype phone devices.

The most obvious advantage of using Skype is the cost of the call made. Skype is able to deliver a 100 percent free of charge phone calls to other Skype devices.The only cost, which the user has to tolerate, is the cost of buying the Skype device.

Another major advantage of Skype is the mobility. Since it uses wireless wi-fi system, it is possible to take the device anywhere within the radius of the network and continue the conversation with other user. Hence it also acts like a mobile phone with the capability of taking the device anywhere without interrupting the voice conversation.

Hence with wi-fi network getting more and more famous these days, the wireless connections are getting spread to more and more areas. With these advances in the field of wireless connection the prospect of Skype is also increasing. Nowadays Skype provide better voice transmission capability through shared wireless network and these days are provided with USB(universal serial bus) charging device so that the phone can recharged by laptops and other PCs.

Since this device is based on wifi, like laptops when these devices are switched on they automatically search for any other connection available in the network. These devices have a simple interface having the features like contact list, call history, voicemail, changing your status, adding a contact, searching for a contact, and looking at how much Skype credit you have etc.

These devices are definitely much cheaper than using the mobile phones available in the market.Though it may not entirely phase out the mobile phones but it would surely bring in some innovation to the field of communication.

Skype®, Linksys®, and Vonage®. Skype phones provide the facility of free call to other user who is also using Skype phone. To make calls to users who are not using Skype phones the call made is generally much cheaper than the call made by land line or cellular phones. The voip technology is used in the outsourcing industry to serve the international clients while sitting in a remote location in other part of the world.
