What is VoIP?

Voice-over Internet Protocol, or VoIP, is a technology that allows telephone calls to be transmitted via the Internet using a broadband connection. Broadband is the common term for a high bandwidth Internet connection – one that can transmit or download information up to 40 times faster than a traditional telephone and modem. VoIP sound quality has also developed with higher bandwidth, equaling a carrier-grade connection. VoIP will provide you with all the standard amenities of a traditional phone line, but also features additional functions rare to analog lines, depending on your chosen service provider.

VoIP - A more technical definition:

VoIP (voice over IP - that is, voice delivered using the Internet Protocol) is a term used in IP telephony for a set of facilities for managing the delivery of voice information using the Internet Protocol (IP). In general, this means sending voice information in digital form in discrete packets rather than in the traditional circuit-committed protocols of the public switched telephone network (PSTN). A major advantage of VoIP and Internet telephony is that it avoids the tolls charged by ordinary telephone service.

VoIP, now used somewhat generally, derives from the VoIP Forum, an effort by major equipment providers, including Cisco, VocalTec, 3Com, and Netspeak to promote the use of ITU-T H.323, the standard for sending voice (audio) and video using IP on the public Internet and within an intranet. The Forum also promotes the user of directory service standards so that users can locate other users and the use of touch-tone signals for automatic call distribution and voice mail.

In addition to IP, VoIP uses the real-time protocol (RTP) to help ensure that packets get delivered in a timely way. Using public networks, it is currently difficult to guarantee Quality of Service (QoS). Better service is possible with private networks managed by an enterprise or by an Internet telephony service provider (ITSP).
