Overview


Is it proper that voice communications should require one network while data communications should require a second one? Convergence of voice and data through the use of IP telephony technologies is rapidly becoming a real possibility for organizations around the world. The benefit of doing so is to slash the costs of network maintenance by eliminating one of the networks.


Telephony over IP networks is still a work in progress, but this volume contains the latest RFCs that describe IP telephony, how it works and how it is used


Voice communications networks and IP data networks have almost nothing in common beyond being networks: IP networks are packet switched, while voice networks are circuit oriented. Doing voice over IP ca pose real problems, as the documents included in this volume attest. Reconciling those differences is key to the ultimate success of IP telephony. Integration of voice into existing applications, such as web or email, is covered here as is the architecture for performing telephony functions and the infrastructure for providing a transport for real-time applications such as communications
