Carrier Grade Voice over IP

Overview

In 2002 voice over IP will constitute more than 25% of all long distance voice calls, according to Network World. That’s more than a 30% ramp-up from 2001. The emergence of SIP, MPLS and new quality of service tools is making carrier grade voice over IP a service reality, and a potentially huge margin booster and revenue driver for service providers.

Overview

In 2002 voice over IP will constitute more than 25% of all long distance voice calls, according to Network World. That’s more than a 30% ramp-up from 2001. The emergence of SIP, MPLS and new quality of service tools is making carrier grade voice over IP a service reality, and a potentially huge margin booster and revenue driver for service providers.

The first edition of Carrier Grade Voice over IP played a roll in VoIP growth, in less than year becoming an essential tool for carriers working to provide high quality IP telephony. This new edition vastly updates the SIP chapter, details MPLS, and takes the explanations of the previous edition a step further in a final chapter that shows, step by step, how to design working VoIP networks.

Skipping needless history, chitchat, and math, Collins gets right down to solutions with solid information on protocols' purposes and uses.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Carrier Grade Voice Over IP, 2nd Edition is an outstanding offering on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). Chock-full of practical, down-to-earth essentials, this book puts a bounty of technical information and design considerations at the reader's disposal for immediate use. While it is indeed a scholarly effort, it is also easy to read, making it a good choice for anyone interested in the subject.

Daniel Collins begins with a helpful introduction to the subject and then dissects the various technology issues in the following chapters. Chapter 2 tackles a thorough discussion on various protocols and standards. Chapter 3 goes into speech and voice considerations. Chapter 4 provides an exemplary discussion of H.323, which allows dissimilar communication devices to communicate with each other by using a standardized communication protocol; and Chapter 5 is equally valuable in its presentation on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Softswitch architecture and media gateway control are reviewed in Chapter 6, while Chapter 7 goes into the signaling system 7 (SS7) protocol suite and network architecture. Quality of Service (QoS) is thoroughly examined in Chapter 8, and Chapter 9 furnishes the reader with design considerations for building and implementing a VoIP network. The addition of a glossary of acronyms is an extremely helpful feature.

If you are involved in telecommunications, particularly in tackling the future of carrier grade VoIP, this book will be an invaluable resource. It will help you generate the cutting-edge solutions needed to deploy a quality-based and competitive VoIP. John Vacca

Offers solutions for a new application of the internet protocol (IP) that provides quality voice phone service alongside the internet and multimedia applications, with an emphasis on how networks can be made carrier-grade. Chapters address voice-coding techniques, the H.323 architecture and protocol suite, the session initiation protocol, media gateway control and softswitch, signaling schemes, and quality of service issues. The last two chapters discuss modem access and potential fax services. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Since leaving Ericsson, Daniel has worked for a new telecommunications carrier and, more recently as a consultant. In a consultancy capacity, he has provided wireless and VoIP engineering expertise to numerous network operators, consultancy companies and infrastructure vendors. Daniel's clients include PrimeCo Personal Communications (now part of Verizon Wireless), Synacom Technology, AT&T Wireless, Alcatel USA and several other companies.
