DMET 1042 Fundamentals of VoIP

Course Information



    Voice transport over IP networks, known as VoIP, is a cost-effective alternative to traditional Public Switching Telephone Network (PSTN) for urban, regional and global voice communications. On a smaller scale, VoIP is wining the competition against traditional Private Branch eXchange (PBX) systems for enterprise-internal telephony.
    This course presents the fundamentals of call setup in VoIP as well as the transport of related data, such as the Dual-Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF), i.e. touch tones, over IP networks. It also presents the main components of a typical VoIP system, such as User Agents (UA), gateways, proxies and registrars.
