The article focuses on Internet Telephony. The roots of today are many separate networks share one common characteristic: Each was technology- driven to solve specific needs. Public, then private voice networks evolved, followed by the still-popular "virtually private" voice contract services in the late 1980s. Data networks grew from leased line links among terminals and mainframes, to network-supported time-sharing and email, all of which were vendor-proprietary up until the mid 1980s. Personal computing also debuted in the mid 1980s, meeting the need for local, individualized information processing. The idea of locally networked PCs was driven by the need to share then expensive resources like laser printers. LANs grew into WANs, which featured their own email and file-sharing capabilities, with the Internet serving as the grand nexus between various private data domains.
