Our telephony services at The Barbican are all run using a service called VoIP (voice-over-internet-protocol) a technology that allows you to use the Internet to make cheap calls but in a traditional way using a handset.
The technology is very similar to making a ‘Facetime’ audio call or calling someone via WhatsApp except rather than using your mobile data and a mobile phone network our telephony system is run using The Barbican’s purpose built fibre network.
This allows for a much higher quality of sound when you’re making calls and you’re using a traditional handset rather than a mobile phone, which some people are conscious of using too often due to concerns about radiation.
If you use any VoIP service you need to be aware that in the event of an emergency if the electricity supply is cut then you will not be able to use the service to make emergency calls.
Our services at The Barbican are as follows:
