ABSTRACT
Affordable video chat and home telecommuting is expected to be available with several ISPs offering Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line at consumer-friendly prices. Consumer-priced SDSL starts at $125 a month. Microsoft Corp. has included VPN server and client capabilities since computer programs Windows NT4 and Windows 95 respectively, so DIY VPNs are viable for small businesses and telecommuters, says systems consultant Stuart Fox. The industry's standard H. 323 protocol, used by Microsoft Netmeeting and others, can deliver good-quality video at 12 frames per second at 256Kbit/s symmetric speeds and with 384Kbit/s at 25fps at reasonable quality.
