  5. 5. What do I need for VOIP? <ul><li>A network connection LAN/WAN/Internet </li></ul><ul><li>Spare network bandwidth for VOIP call traffic </li></ul><ul><li>Quality of Service to give priority to voice traffic </li></ul><ul><li>Soft Phone software with headset or </li></ul><ul><li>Broadband Router with phone socket + phone or </li></ul><ul><li>Router + Analog Telephone Adapter + phone or </li></ul><ul><li>PABX with VOIP facilities </li></ul><ul><li>Wifi Router + Wifi phone handsets </li></ul>

  9. 9. Soft Phone e.g. Skype <ul><li>Free software </li></ul><ul><li>Free Skype to Skype </li></ul><ul><li>Free Video Conferencing </li></ul><ul><li>Prepay to call real phones </li></ul><ul><li>Prepay for phone no. (10 Euro for 3 months) </li></ul><ul><li>Voicemail with phone no. </li></ul><ul><li>Send SMS from PC (has fee) </li></ul><ul><li>Can use wherever on broadband </li></ul><ul><li>Can work with Pocket PC wifi </li></ul>
