The process of voice conversations using the Internet Protocol isn’t a radical new idea. In fact, the basic technology behind advanced packet services like frame relay, ATM and IP for transporting voice between corporate sites is several years old. The trick with voice over IP (VoIP) therefore is to reconfigure a network to accommodate IP-based technology and unified voice/data communications without compromising security — while at the same time guaranteeing voice quality. Cost-justifying the move to VoIP requires thoroughly weighing the major financial considerations for an IP communications deployment. The whitepaper discusses a few of those key considerations and their associated IP benefits, along with how to evaluate the right IP solution for your organization.
