IEEE Communications Magazine April 200096 Internet Telephony: Services,

Summary: IEEE Communications Magazine April 200096
Internet Telephony: Services,
Technical Challenges, and Products
0163-6804/00/$10.00 2000 IEEE
The rapid proliferation of the Internet in the
last few years has given rise to a strong interest
in carrying telephony over the Internet. Because
the Internet supports data communications, a
range of other services can be bundled together
with Internet telephony. The Internet, however,
was designed for non-real-time data communica-
tions, and hence it poses several technical chal-
lenges that must be overcome before the Internet
can be successfully used for carrying telephone
services. This article discusses new services we
can expect from Internet telephony, the technical
challenges and solutions, and the emerging prod-
ucts that promise to support Internet telephony.
