Over the next 10 years, the internet, along with wireless Internet access, may make the traditional circuit-switched telephone system a thing of the past. VoIP not only provides phone service inexpensively, but also provides numerous value-added services, such as video conferencing, online directory services, voice messaging, and integration into social networks such as Facebook® and Google+™. In this assignment, you will place yourself in the role of an analyst who will determine the most appropriate and effective choice of telephony system for an organization.
In recent years, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) enabled telephony networks have introduced a number of radical innovations in that way that people use telephony in general, including allowing people to take business-related calls seamlessly, even when they are not physically “at the office”. Research the elements that comprise SIP and VoIP. Put yourself into the position of a system administrator considering updating your business’s landline telephony system. What elements of the technology would you assign the greatest value? Would you even consider using a VoIP telephony solution rather than a traditional landline? Why or why not? If you have “real world” experience with VoIP, please include a brief overview of that experience. If you do not have personal experience of the technology, include an overview of a case study of VoIP.
Based on your research, write a 3–5 page paper that researches the concept of internet telephony, as well as providing an analysis and comparison of several telephony technologies currently available.
