    This paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using VoIP services, focusing primarily on security issues. VoIP offers cost-savings and added functionality, but can over-task your infrastructure without proper planning.

    Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a form of communication that allows you to
    make phone calls over a broadband internet connection instead of typical analog
    telephone lines.

    Basic VoIP access usually allows you to call others who are also receiving calls
    over the internet. Interconnected VoIP services also allow you to make and receive
    calls to and from traditional landline numbers, usually for a service fee. Some VoIP
    services require a computer or a dedicated VoIP phone, while others allow you to use
    your landline phone to place VoIP calls through a special adapter.
