    Goes beyond the mere description of protocols

    There are several books about VoIP in the market but for me this one stands out because of its unique approach. Rather than focusing on protocols and the bit/byte details, the book gave me insight into the concepts and issues arising in deploying VoIP over various technologies. The concepts that drive different technologies like P2P and Wireless networks are explained very clearly. The issues arising when we deploy VoIP in these settings are discussed. I believe the most unique aspect of the book is that it uses performance results reported in recent research publications to highlight the performance issues and their possible solutions. For a relatively short book, it contains a wealth of knowledge about the new technologies and corresponding VoIP related issue. I highly recommend this book to all users who are interested in understanding the core issues and are not merely interested in knowing the positions of different bits and bytes in various messages in protocols.
