  1. 1. VoIP<br />George Wedlake<br />
  2. 2. What is VoIP?<br /> VoIP is the Voice over Internet Protocol. <br />
  3. 3. What is VoIP?<br />The Voice over Internet Protocol enables you to use your IP network to make phone calls.<br />However, it is not just used for phone calls, it is used for general voice communications over the internet.<br />
  4. 4. How does VoIP work?<br />VoIP works differently to ordinary telephone communications.<br />This is because the traditional way of making telephone call utilises something called circuit switching.<br />Instead of circuit switching, VoIP converts your voice into little packets of data and then they travel on a route of several routers, to reach their destination. <br />
  5. 5. Who uses VoIP?<br />VoIP is beginning to be used in a lot of business. This is because it is considered cheap.<br />Microsoft is using VoIP for their ‘Xbox’ live service. Enabling customers to be able to talk through a headset to each other. However, they do charge a small fee for the service.<br />Skype also use VoIP. Skype is used by 20% of American businesses.<br />

  7. 7. Corporate use of VoIP<br />Several businesses are now switching from copper wired telephone to VoIP.<br />This is to reduce the monthly phone costs.<br />
  8. 8. Disadvantages of VoIP<br />There is one factor that is preventing VoIP from really taking off. This is the fact that it is less reliable than the traditional switched circuit method of telephone communications. <br />This is because some parts of the packet, that the voice is sent in can be lost.<br />Resulting in a small bit of jittering and low sound quality.<br />
