There is a distinction to be made between the two even though the term is loosely applied to both.
Vocaltec brought to market the first internet phone software called the Internet Phone. The Vocaltec software compressed the voice signal, translated it into digital packets, and distributed it over the Internet. The technology solution worked well as long as both the caller and the receiver had the same hardware and software.
Although sound quality was poor and nowhere near that of conventional equipment at the time, the effort represented the first IP phone.
Early adopters were largely made up of hobbyists who quickly recognized the potential of transmitting voice data packets over the Web instead of communicating through the traditional telephone companies. Vocaltec was designed to run on a home computer, integrated with sound cards, and microphones and speakers, leveraged the H.
However, inbroadband Internet connectivity was not nearly as popular to initial industry growth was subdued and later directly influenced by broadband industry growth. This company delivered the first true VoIP software application and helped lay the groundwork to grow the VoIP industry.
Hobbyists and entrepreneurs were creating new hardware devices and software solutions which enabled computer-to-phone and phone-to-phone connections. The gradual introduction of broadband Ethernet technologies delivered greater call clarity and reduced latency.
This permitted large technology companies such as Cisco Systems and Nortel to start making VoIP equipment that was capable of switching, therefore functions that had previously been handled by a computer's CPU, such as switching a voice data packet into something that could be read by the PSTN and vice versa could now be offloaded to another more powerful device.
Mass market VoIP telephony began in with the introduction of VoIP calling plans which permitted subscribers to make calls just as they would with conventional telephone company services.
Full service VoIP phone companies provided inbound and outbound calling with Direct Inbound Dialing in mass and with discount pricing plans.
Many offered unlimited calling to the United States, with some of the plans offering flat rate calling to Canada or selected countries in the Europe Union or Asia.This project-thesis examines the technical requirements of a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solution and is it advantageous for a Multinational Corporation (MNC) to utilize the Project Management Office (PMO) processes as defined by the Project Management Institute, Inc.

The from the 2G/3G networks which have distinct CS capabilities for voice. IP based. Current Voice-over-IP solutions require the hosts engaged in a call to have fixed IP addresses. When either host is a portable computer on a wireless local-area network, such as an network, mobility might result in the host needing to change IP address as it moves to a different subnet on the.
The motivation for this thesis has been the high QoS provided to current delay-sensitive applications such as Voice-over-IP (VoIP) by the incorporation of congestion avoidance algorithms derived from the original RED design .
