VoIP (voice over internet protocol) over the internet, compared to VoIP over private networks. Hello, I’m Rachael Ruble with FiberLine Communications. Thank you for joining us for this discussion about VoIP (voice over internet protocol) over the internet, compared to VoIP over private networks. VoIP (voice over internet protocol) voice traffic can be transmitted over the public internet, across the secure network of a telecom provider, or via the private MPLS network of a multi-location business. VoIP over the public internet has its limitations because CoS (Class of Service) packet prioritization cannot be enforced on the public internet.

The result of this is that voice traffic is competing with all other internet traffic throughout its journey across the public internet. Lack of CoS packet prioritization can often result in latency and packet loss. High latency and packet loss often result in poor call quality. Latency and packet loss are virtually non-existent with VoIP over the private networks of telecom providers. With this option, the provider keeps all voice traffic on their private network, until this traffic reaches the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). This allows the provider to utilize CoS packet prioritization to ensure that voice traffic receives top priority; and more routine, less latency sensitive applications receive lower priority. The result is virtually perfect call quality. All major telecom providers now routinely utilize VoIP technology for voice traffic. With VoIP over the private MPLS (Multiprotocol label
switching) network of a multi-location business, CoS is ensured by the provider, so call quality is excellent in these situations as well. An advantage for businesses with VoIP over an MPLS network is that all location-to-location calls within each network, regardless of distance, are free. This includes international calls over an international MPLS network.
