Workshop on

VoIP Technology: Research and Standards for reliable applications

(in conjunction with PIMRC 2008)

Sept. 15, 2008, Cannes - Palais de Festivals, France


Aim of the Workshop

The trend to all IP-based networks has been fuelled by the Internet’s flexibility that allows the development of innovative services. In this context, the integration of heterogeneous infrastructures as well as applications is of paramount importance. Voice over IP (VoIP), also referred to as Internet or IP telephony, is an example of application that brings the well-known circuit-switched service to the context of IP-based networks. Over the last years, VoIP has received the wide acceptance of users and network operators due to its countless benefits. While users enjoy the flexibility and the monetary savings that VoIP provides, service providers take advantage of its cost-effectiveness. Although VoIP has evolved rapidly, recent advances provide new opportunities for meeting numerous daunting challenges for reaching the quality of traditional telephony service. To this end, he VoIP community is taking advantage of new networking technologies (i.e., WiMAX, Wireless Mesh networks, overlay networks, etc) and innovative design trends and technologies (i.e., cross-layer architectures, QoS advances, network coding, etc). The aim of this workshop is to serve as a forum for scientists and engineers from academia, industry as well as from regulatory and standardization authorities, where they could share recent advances and design trends in VoIP technology.
