A Practical Guide to Migrating to VoIP Planning and Design Considerations
One of the most crucial steps any organization should take in deploying a solution for voice over IP (VoIP) is to plan for an Internet Protocol-oriented infrastructure. True, VoIP deployments vary significantly from one organization to the next, and migrations don’t all follow the same path.
But by understanding the principal elements of VoIP — network bandwidth and CODEC requirements, Quality of Service (QoS) for networked voice traffic, standards such as the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), etc. — organizations can establish a specific, effective baseline for their VoIP solution deployment, and ensure the best possible system and network performance once their solution is in place.
