    I have recently created two hubs sharing knowledge on Voip technology and phones and would like to inquire from other like minded people about their opinion, so what is your opinion....

      VOIP calls really helps specially for countries with high International call charges.

      I also have posted my first hub on VoIP phones and I strongly believe that VoIP phones are the best to use in office for all communication needs.

    At some point, every thing's going through one or two pipes.

    If you've digital phone service (which most everyone does these days) it's a protocol like VOIP, being that it's sent in a signal of ones and zeroes.

    The differences are the carrier (cell phone, etc) and the technology it uses to encode/decode.

    It's amazing, though, that you can virtually get IP/TCP to do anything. Gooo DARPA!

    I work for a VoIP provider who uses a porta-one based SIP stack.  What kind of information are you looking for?  Are you talking about free pbx systems like asterisk, phones, SBCs, codecs?

    What are you looking for?

      "Communications over Internet Protocol" - basically, multimedia in addition to voice.

        i assume when skype starts to allow video calling, it will be called COIP instead of VOIP service?

        my current mobile service provider 3 network allows users to use Skype for free. I wonder if that will still be the case when video is added into Skype application.

    VoIP service is one enjoyable feature included in the Virtual PBX system. Very cost effective tool in communicating with people abroad.

    It depends on what VoIP is being compared to, the old style dedicated circuits or P2P.  Personally, the telephone dedicated switched circuits has a guaranteed level of quality and reliability that is still hard to beat.

    VoIP has become increasingly popular over the last dozen years since it was introduced in Israel.  However, the ever popular peer-to-peer (P2P) solutions like Skype have also grown.

    Ugh!  Our company just went to VOIP recently.  We're now more limited than before.

    yes no doubt that voip is future of the communication technology and so many advantages are provided by it

    we all know that the quality of voice would be lower than the regular communication method.
    But, the important part is the price which is very cheap especially for some developing countries
