VoIP explained

Peter Gradwell of Gradwell.com follows a phone call across the internet, discussing the issues involved.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) has been 'the next big thing' for some time. Will it arrive? Has it done so already?

Peter Gradwell set up an Internet Service Provider during his Software Engineering degree course. After converting the company phone system to VoIP in 2004, they are now one of the leading providers of VoIP services in the UK. (They also provide e-mail facilities to the BCS.)

During this talk, Peter will highlight and discuss different types of VoIP, phone number provision, call quality, firewalling, connecting emergency calls and other issues of interest.

Come along and find out more. Maybe the time is right for your company to take the plunge.
