Top 10 VIDEO: The real value of VoIP conference calling

by David Spark on May 7, 2009

More than a year ago I produced and appeared in 21 advice and “how to” videos for AllBusiness.com on a variety of different topics:

Even though it’s been a year, I just found out that one of my videos has become one of the top ten most popular videos. It’s “The real value of of VoIP conference calling.” I watched it again and noticed that there was some dated information. For example, the Facebook app, “Free Conference Calls” has now been renamed to be “Calliflower” and it works on Facebook and also just on the Web.

Here’s the video.

Voice over Internet Protocol has been around since many years. But due to lack of sufficient and affordable bandwidth it was not possible to carry carrier grade voice over Internet Protocol. But since the arrival of low cost internet bandwidth and new speech codecs such as G.729, G.723 which utilizes very low payload to carry carrier class voice it has recently been possible to leverage the true benefits of VoIP. G.723 codec utilizes only 6 Kbps (Kilo Bytes/sec) which is capable of maintaining a constant stream of data between peers and deliver carrier grade voice quality. Lets put this way if you have 8 Mbps internet connection, by using G.723 codec you can run upto 100 telephone lines with crystal clear and carrier grade voice quality. I am also a user of VoIP and have setup a small PBX at home. Since I have discovered VoIP I have never used traditional PSTN service.

I'm currently using Comcast's service for phone and I must say it's not 100% accurate because every now and then it just doesn't work. No dial tone. So VoIP works when the Internet connection is working.
