I have been asked to look in to how viable VoIP is, how good is the technology, and if it is a reliable system?
Does any one use VoIP , and if so how have you found it?
Is it reliable?
Is the quality as good or better than analog?
Any comments would be appreciated.
Information about VoIP: Voice over IP (VoIP) technology, or IP technology, as it is sometimes called, is a system for transmitting telephone calls over data networks. VoIP technology converts analog voice into digital information and sends it over the Internet in small packets minimising the amount of resources used in a telephone connection.
I work from home and exclusively use Skype to contact the office.. It's excellent with good sound quality.. it occasionally drops the connection, but nothing particularly bad. and considering it's free to call another computer, then I thinks it's excellent!
Forgive my butting in with another question, but answers might interest recap too; I gather that the quality of voIP is usually poor with a dialup connection (which I have). I listen to internet radio sometimes (though only BBC so far), and the quality seems fine. Does this mean I could get decent voIP quality?
