Keyword(s): internet telephony; Voice over IP

Abstract: Why has Internet telephony attracted so much attention and optimism over the past year? The obvious reason is that it has the potential to significantly reduce the cost of long distance voice communication. Additionally, Internet telephony (or the more generally, Voice over IP) introduces entirely new and enhanced ways of communicating. This report aims to introduce the main ideas involved with the provision of voice services over IP networks, and the factors surrounding the growth of the industry.
