What is a WiFi Phone? How Does It Work?

August 21, 2020 by Ying-Hui Chen

A WiFi phone is a telecom device that’s equipped with the capability to connect to the Internet through a WiFi network. When using these devices, you are able to make phone calls, receive/send messages through a WiFi connection. 

Since Wi-Fi calling makes calls over the Internet through WLAN (wireless local access network), it doesn’t need to rely on the network of cell towers. WiFi ranges up to 300ft, thereafter you need another WAP (Wireless Access Point/Repeater/WiFi Extender) to continue the longevity so the connection doesn’t start cutting out and calls drop.
