History of VoIP
Although VoIP is considered to be a modern and technologically-savvy way of communicating in business today, its inception started as early as 1973. This early adoption started as a result of an experiment to introduce Network Voice Protocol (NVP) developed by Danny Cohen. NVP was created for what was the basis and start of the Internet back then, designed by linking four university computers at the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET).
Later, ARPANET introduced Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) as an early packet-switching network, which further became the groundwork of the Internet.
In 1995, the first Internet Phone Software was created by Vocaltec. This software used the voice signal by compressing it and translating it into digital voice packets which were easily distributed over the Internet. Even though the sound quality was less than desirable, the connection was made if both parties had the same hardware and software. This marked the birth of the IP phone.
The market started adopting this new technology and web calls started taking place through the H.323 protocol rather than the Session Initiating Protocol (SIP). In 1995, broadband Internet hit the market and industry growth was directly affected.
In 1996, Vocaltec successfully launched the first Initial Public Offering (IPO) of the Internet phone. The network was delivered through the first real VoIP software application, and so the VoIP industry started gaining traction.
Soon various connections started surfacing for example, computer-to-phone connectivity, or phone-to-phone connections. In 1998, VoIP traffic represented 1% of voice traffic and tripled its growth by the year 2000 when it accounted for 3% of voice traffic in the United States (US).
As VoIP became more prominent in 2003, so technology companies started enhancing its software and hardware capabilities by delivering better sound clarity on calls and minimising latency. This took VoIP traffic to 25%. During this time Skype also launched, increasing business capability to make calls to landlines and cellphones.
By 2004, mass market VoIP began providing full service VoIP technology to companies equipping them to make inbound and outbound calls with Direct Inbound Dialling.
In 2007, VoIP device sellers and manufactures started developing improved products and growth spiked. As a result of the enhanced bandwidth efficiency and low-cost calling, businesses started growing their technology status and moved from traditional telecommunications to VoIP systems. This reduced their monthly costs considerably and by 2008 80% of all PBX users had migrated to VoIP.
Today, VoIP has grown to such an extent that it is seen as the ideal medium of communication for small to large enterprises. It is the single-most cost-effective method of communicating with sellers and buyers and expands business reach to across the world.
With VoIP, any company can enjoy a number of communication features. These include:
- Caller ID
- Unlimited calling
- Call Forwarding
- 3D Calling
- Call Blocking
- Video Conferencing
As VoIP technology and advancements keep improving, we can only imagine what the future of business communications will look like. For companies looking to keep ahead of the technology curve, VoIP is a positive cost-saving solution.
