Mobile VoIP stands for mobile voice over internet protocol. It is also known as internet telephony, IP telephony or broadband telephony. It means one can avail all the services of the mobile phone from the internet without the cellular network provider. But mobile phones need to be integrated onto a VoIP network via Wi-Fi or a cellular network. The service provider companies offer lower rates as compared to the traditional service providers but may not offer emergency calling services. Some voice over IP providers offer complete cloud based user interface and calling while some provide web calling and routing through physical handsets. In majority of the cases users need to first install software application in the mobile devices to consume the service such as to make VoIP calls.
The growth of mobile VoIP market is driven by the need of voice communication. There is extremely high demand for low cost and free communication service and an increasing need of mobile services which users do not get at certain locations. The growth of the high-speed network is another factor to drive the market growth as there is high penetration of 3G and many developing countries have adopted 4G LTE wireless technology with the emergence of 5G technology. This enables Voice over IP to offer flexibility in making low cost and free calls. The adoption of Voice over IP is observed across various industries worldwide especially in the developing regions in order to cater to their growing demand for every day businesses activities. With its real time communication services, it has helped organization across various industries to lower the communication costs.
