Review:

High-speed networking infrastructures have immense potential, but most organizations don't take advantage of it. Voice and Data Internetworking tries to bridge the gap by showing you first of all how to configure your Internet Protocol (IP) networks to handle real-time voice conversations. About half of the book addresses academic (but important) material, including the suitability of IP and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) to voice and the various approaches to the problem of digitally encoding human speech. When the text digs into specific mechanisms for transporting voice over networks designed for data traffic (Frame Relay and ATM particularly), specific configuration instructions are skimped on in favor of how the protocols work and how they need to be adapted to the special characteristics of voice, in addition to the economics of voice over IP. There are charts that show how the cost-effectiveness of such systems grows with call volume, plus other charts that show how much time typical employees spend on the phone. This material would be useful in a feasibility study of voice over IP for a large enterprise. The book also has lots of information (and opinions) on specific products and services. --David Wall

Topics covered: The business case for voice over IP, operational details of the TCP/IP protocol suite, IPv4 and IPv6 packet structure, voice and technologies for digitally encoding it, Frame Relay, and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM).
