Analog vs. VoIP
There are many differences between analog telephones and digital VoIP phones. Analog phone technology takes an audio signal (i.e. your voice) and translates it into electronic pulses. VoIP phone technology breaks the audio signal into a binary format where your voice is represented by a series of 1s and 0s and transfers it to a device on the other end (generally a modem or phone) that reassembles the binary format into the original signal.
Analog phones are a lot cheaper but do not have as many features as VoIP phones. VoIP phones generally come with a lot of added business features such as call forwarding, extension dialing and hold music. While analog conference phone systems do exist, VoIP conference phone systems offer a lot more configuration options.
There is a need for analog phone ports though because fax machines, modems, credit card readers, postage machines and many cordless phones still need to connect to analog interfaces.
