Skype VOIP methods

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Alistair George, Apr 3, 2005.

  1. Hi all. I was wondering if any of you had more comments to add to the
    following eg how to implement/design a similar network; where more
    details are to be found on this subject etc.
    I presume by their method, that several users become hosts, serving
    client machines with IP address information etc (or not?)

    The key paragraph:
    Decentralized P2P networks have several advantages over traditional
    client-server networks. These networks scale indefinitely without
    increasing search time and without the need for costly centralized
    resources. They utilize the processing and networking power of the
    end-users machines since these resources always grow in direct
    proportion to the network itself. Each new node added to the network
    adds potential processing power and bandwidth to the network. Thus, by
    decentralizing resources, second generation (2G) P2P networks have been
    able to virtually eliminate costs associated with a large centralized
    infrastructure.

    Good luck using P2P in enterprises where they specifcally ban p2p
    communication. Also, Skype hasn't got any major suppliers behind it for
    offering true standalone IP phones. Sure they have USB devices, but who
    wants to only make and receive calls when your PC is on?
