Mobile VOIP

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a definite improvement over traditional communication networks. In VoIP networks, both voice and data communications are combined in a single network. VoIP Mobile or 'Mobile Voice over Internet Protocol' is the application of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology to mobile handsets. If mobile phones are a boon for users, Mobile VoIP goes one step further. It not only facilitates the way in which a person can communicate with another but also ensures faster, effective and accurate exchange of information in the modern day world.

To enable Mobile VoIP, one would need a mobile phone handset that supports high speed IP communication. Mobile handset manufacturers are giving adequate thought to the design and development of innovative handsets that could be used to enjoy specialised VoIP services. For one, these innovative handsets would have more powerful processors. One could use many of the latest smart phones for high speed web access, sending and receiving emails, as well as for viewing engrossing TV output.

Apart from the device, one would need a client software, a wireless network and a VoIP service for enabling mobile VoIP. A potential user could go for Voice over Wi-fi, which is more often than not, delivered free of cost. One could also opt for high speed services through EVDO rev A or HSPDA technology – the better audio qualities and metropolitan coverage would compensate for the price one would typically have to pay for these specialised services.

There is a rising demand for Mobile VOIP and facilitators from different spheres are doing all that it takes to cater to this demand. The industry for Mobile VoIP is still in the nascent stage but if the current trends are anything to go by, the growth rates are expected to be phenomenal in the near future.
