Using VoIP has many advantages which include the ability of not using a landline which subsequently reduces the telephone bills of clients and also the ability to make long distance and international calls, which is being regulated by the standard internet data rate. Electricians can be hired to assemble certain instruments or gadgets such as the (ATA) Analog Telephone Adapter that enables a usual telephone to an Ethernet port on a standard LAN router or in most cases broadband routers.

An ATA is a device which is responsible for the conversion of a voice into a digital signal that can then be sent over the internet. A card which is called the interface card containing an ATA is normally being used in order to accept the landline phone cable. This card is then connected to an Ethernet port of a computer. IP phones are known to have its own built in ATA for the conversion of a voice to its digital counterpart. IP phones are usually connected to a computer Ethernet port.
