A desktop phone is similar to a regular landline phone in the sense you can dial using the keypad and pick up the receiver to make and receive calls.
The major difference is that a desktop phone uses Voice over IP, VoIP, to make calls over the internet. They are connected to a network of other phones in a company with different extensions, without the need to install multiple phone lines.
Are desktop phones digital only?
When it comes to desktop phones, they are digital connections, meaning they use an internet connection to make calls. A lot of businesses start out using an analogue line, which is the copper wire running down a landline.
The phones Armstrong Bell offer are all digital, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use your analogue phone on the network. An adapter and a specialised device will convert the line to a digital one.
