In the past, contacting someone overseas would require us to pay a hefty price, while talking to multiple clients through a single call was once deemed impossible. Voice over Internet
Protocol (VoIP), a way to transmit voice or multimedia data over the internet, paved the way for a convenient, efficient, and cost-effective way of communicating.
The constant development of wireless
and wired network infrastructure over the past few years has propelled the growth of VoIP.
The rising demand for cheaper means of communication
has led to its enormous success.
If you’re in the market for a new VoIP
service, this is what you should be looking for.
Affordability and accessibility
Users should be charged lower fees – or none at all in most applications – because the technology
is built onexisting internet
connections. Users only pay for the data used, which means that VoIP
providers have an interest in keeping data use as minimal as possible.
Strong connectivity in countries with poor internet penetration
To provide the highest quality calls regardless of where the call is made, Line
utilizes servers in various data centers in different regions. To avoid server overload, Line
servers are divided into the application and video or call layers. The app maintains voice call quality by connecting clients to the nearest region’s frontend server.
Maintaining video quality with minimum data
To improve video quality without eating up too much mobile data, Line
uses multi-layer video streams. When a device captures the video, it sends multiple layers of the video stream to the central server and combines them to produce the video with the most manageable resolution to others.
