ABSTRACT
The article reports on recent development in Internet telephony (IP telephony). There has been renewed interest in voice over IP (VoIP) telephone systems as falling prices and increasing functionality make it a viable proposition for most users. Lan-based voice over IP has been around for 10 years, yet to date, take-up has been far more restricted than early industry forecasts would have had users believe. Now, just as everything seemed to be going quiet, everyone is talking about VoIP again, as though it is the latest, greatest new kid on the IP services block. At the Netevents industry symposium in Spain this month, dedicated sessions were given over to the topic for the first time in years. VoIP supplier company Zultys said the reason for this is that the technology has progressed to the point where it is now an economically viable solution for the vast majority of businesses, and call costs between VoIP handsets are free with the right system.Cisco Inc. too is bringing more to the VoIP party with a range of integrated service routers that includes IP telephony, voice, mail and auto attendant functionality. INSET: Steve Broadhead, Broadband-Testing.
