Internet TelephoneInternet telephony or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is an umbrella term for transmission technologies resulting in delivery of voice communication over Internet. It can be voice, fax or any such thing. The idea is to refrain from Public Switched Telephone Network and use Internet instead. This is done by altering the analog codes into digital ones and then modifying or translating them into an Internet Protocol.

Today, VoIP is largely implanted via H.323, IMS, SIP, and RTP. Broadband Internet Access Services have let us indulge in mass-usage of Voice over Internet protocol.

The services can be bestowed via an analog provider fixed between a telephone jack and an IP network; Wi-Fi’s that won’t require a computer; and a softphone that can seamlessly run without dedicated hardware. For the purpose of connecting switching stations and aligning telephone network providers, VoIP is turning out to be a rousing mantra of present-day technology.
