Interview: VoIP set to transform communications in the enterprise

Voice over IP (VoIP) is set to transform telecommunications in the next five to 10 years. And with telecom companies moving their telephone calls from circuit-switched telephone networks to packet-based data, there have been calls for U.S. telecom regulatory policy to change as well. Neal Shact, CEO of CommuniTech, a telecommunications equipment vendor specializing in headsets, video, and audio teleconferencing equipment, spoke to InfoWorld Senior Analyst Wayne Rash about the FCC’s hearings and what VoIP solutions in the enterprise are going to look like.



AT&T looks for 911 assistance in VoIP

AT&T plans to announce Tuesday that it has hired Intrado to develop a way for the long distance company’s Internet phone customers to reach 911 emergency services.
The 911 service accompanying AT&T’s residential Internet phone offering will make its debut in the spring, according to Intrado. A spokesman for AT&T could not be reached for comment.

While they have been hailed for costing up to 30 percent less than traditional dialing plans, so-called voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) services often do not include the ability to dial 911. The reason is that VoIP calls are routed over the Internet, while most emergency calling centers are only capable of receiving calls using older circuit-switched telephone technology.


Panama Introduces 12% Tax on VoIP Calls

Panama lawmakers have approved a new regulation that requires all telehony
providers including VoIP service providers, to pay a 12% tax on all
international calls. The tax replaces a $1 per international call fee.

Turkey and Pakistan are expected to adopt similar rules, treating VoIP
providers no different than traditional telcos.


FCC Chief frowns on VoIP regulations

The top U.S. telecom regulator said Thursday that he has no intention of setting rules for Internet telephony, which he said could have a dramatic impact on voice communications.

Companies that offer voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) have seen rapid growth in recent months as people embrace lower-cost communications online with quality comparable to traditional phones.

“It’s probably the most significant paradigm shift in the entire history of modern communications, since the invention of the telephone,” Michael Powell, chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, told journalists at the World Economic Forum.
