Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a general term for a family of transmission technologies for delivery of voice communicationsover IPnetworkssuch as theInternetor other packet-switchednetworks. Other terms frequentlyencountered and synonymous with VoIP are IP telephony, Internet telephony, voiceover broadband (VoBB), broadbandtelephony, and broadband phone.Internet telephony refers to communications services-voice, facsimile, andvoice-messaging applications-that are transported via the Internet, rather than the public switched telephone network (PSTN). The basic steps involved in originating anInternet telephone call are conversion of the analog voice signal to digital format andcompression/translation of the signal intoInternet protocol(IP) packets for transmission over the Internet; the process is reversed at the receiving end.VoIP systems employ session control protocols to control the set-up and tear-down of calls as well asaudio codeswhich encode speech allowing transmission over an IP network asdigital audiovia anaudio stream.Codec use is varied betweendifferent implementations of VoIP (and often a range of codes are used); someimplementations rely onnarrowbandandcompressed speech, while others supporthigh fidelitystereocodes.
A blog is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.
Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function asmore personalonline diaries.
