What is a cloud VoIP
phone system?

Cloud VoIP or hosted VoIP is a business phone service that routes calls through the internet.

Most hosted VoIP systems come with advanced features like auto attendant, call recording, video conferencing, and long-distance calling.

How does cloud VoIP work?

Phone icon

VoIP, also known as Voice over Internet Protocol, takes the audio from phone calls and transforms it into data packets.

Internet range icon

The data is sent over the internet and does not require the use of telephone wires unlike traditional phone systems.

Cloud icon

By using your existing internet connection, cloud VoIP can reduce business phone system costs and outages.

Team icon

Your remote team can take their business communications software with them — wherever they go, even on Wi-Fi.

Nextiva's virtual phone system on a deskphone, laptop, and mobile

Get started with cloud VoIP in three easy steps:

Test your network and internet connection

Invest in the right VoIP hardware

Find a VoIP provider with the right features


Concerned about how much bandwidth a cloud phone system can use? A rule of thumb is about 100 kbps upload and download speeds per line.

Most internet service providers offer gigabit speeds, so your current connection may be fast enough for a VoIP phone system.

Take our VoIP speed test to check for potential call quality issues.

Convert your existing analog telephone to a SIP phone with an ATA. Or, purchase a hard phone.

VoIP hard phones are similar to traditional phones but let you connect to an IP network. You can easily get a SIP-enabled hard phone under $100.

You can also use a softphone, which lets you make and receive phone calls from your computer, smartphone, or tablet. It works like any VoIP app.

Nextiva is rated Best Business Phone Service in 2021 by U.S. News and is known for unparalleled customer service.

We’ll gladly handle everything for you in the transition. With our award-winning Amazing Service®, we’re here to help your business grow long-term.
