What is the advantage of connecting a local computer to a VOIP phones through local port? On the back of most VoIP phones there is a mini switch. IP Phones — These specialized phones look just like normal phones with a handset, cradle and buttons. But instead of having the standard RJ-11 phone connectors, IP phones have an RJ-45 Ethernet connector. IP phones connect directly to your router and have all the hardware and software necessary right onboard to handle the IP call. Wi-Fi phones allow subscribing callers to make VoIP calls from any Wi-Fi hot spot. The switch below has a LAN (Local Area Network port) and a PC (Personal Computer port). Voip Service ProviderThe LAN port goes to the wall and PC port goes to your computer. The difference between the two ports is that the LAN port communicates with the switch in a Trunking Protocol and the PC port places the PC in a data VLAN. The LAN Port sets up QOS and the proper VLAN for the phone and the PC port makes sure your do not “step” on your phone calls with too much data usage. All of the before mentions assumes everything is configured correctly by your network team.
