Internet.com Launches Site Dedicated to VoIP
March 16, 2005
Enterprise VoIPplanet will cover the hot voice over IP technology, with emphasis on the deployment and growth of the packet-based phone technology in the business arena.
Industry pundits and analysts say it; outgoing FCC chairman Michael Powell said it; Internet.com says it: Voice over IP (VoIP) is the future of telephony.
Accordingly, the seasoned technology journalists at the Internet.com network have launched what they believe is the first Web site devoted exclusively to IP voice technology in all its evolving forms.
Enterprise VoIPplanet will, of course, cover current industry Newsagain, with emphasis on enterprise-related topics.A Solutions section will follow developing software, hardware, and systems, as well as engineering, architecture, and deployment strategies.
The site will also track industry Trendsstandards and protocol issues, industry metrics, political and regulatory developments, multi-use IP networks, and emerging areas of concern, such as voice spam, phishing, and security —and of course, the ever-growing area of voice over Wi-Fi (alternatively known as VoWi-Fi, VoWLAN or even wVoIP).
Finally, a library of Backgrounders will serve as a knowledge base for those interested in learning the fundamentalsas well as the detailsof packet-based, converged networks.
Enterprise VoIPplanet will draw on a wide pool of talented experienced journalists. Wi-Fi Planet regular contributor Gerry Blackwell, for example, has been writing about voice over IP since 1999, when it was little more than a gee-whiz gadget technology ("Can you hear me now?"). Mark A. Miller, P.E., president of DigiNet Corp. and author of Voice over IP Technologies: Building the Converged Network will contribute an initial series of 10 Backgrounders covering standards, protocols, economics, design, testing, and performance of multi-use IP networks.
Vendors in the VoIP community should contact the editor, Ted Stevenson, with announcements, white papers, and other relevant information.
