The communication networks available today are beyond the imagination of our ancestors and keeps getting more and more advanced every year. One of the latest networks that have been developed is the VoIP or in full the voice over internet protocol which is communication through a network called the internet protocol network.
The history of communication methods that evolved over the centuries, and become available at the touch of a button. Gone are the days of messengers and waiting weeks for information to be passed around or delivered. Other the centuries the gap between information leaving one point and reaching another has reduced to the extent that it is hardly noticeable. Information can be sent to another country in the same time it takes to send information to someone in an office next to yours.
These days many people are able to go and study overseas, while other often emigrate to countries that are able to offer them better employment opportunities with their qualifications. This has resulted in a brain drain for many countries especially those where unemployment rates are high and not enough opportunities are made available. While this service could also be useful for people studying through correspondence and need to communicate with their tutors.
In an age where people are able to move around the work either for holidays or for work many families are often split with family members living in different countries. This has created a need for communication which in the past used to be by posting letters or making calls. The letter used to take ages to reach the intended person while the calls were very costly meaning that it had to be reduced to a minimum and were reserved for very important needs.
Normal telephone companies charge what is termed has been termed as tolls for the use of their services and with the IP network there are no tolls charged. It is easy to make use of the system all that is needed is a computer or laptop with a webcam, microphone and a reliable internet connection.
Many service providers offer this service free for call that are made to numbers using the same service provider while other calls may incur depending on their area code and their service. This service also allows the transfer of documents in a safe and secure manor.
Computers or laptops that have a web cam, microphone and a reliable internet connection can make use of the VoIP network and start communicating with friends and family overseas or for business purposes. There is no longer a need to wait for urgent information before making contact and this contact will be face to face and for a longer period of time and not just a quick hello.
