IP Telephony

Async Professional includes components to transmit data over phone lines and networks, and components to transmit wave recordings through voice modems, APRO also includes a component to transmit audio and video through the network through IP Telephony.

IP (Internet Protocol) Telephony is a technology where audio and video can be streamed across a network. As it’s name implies, IP Telephony uses IP as the transport layer. This transport layer is provided through TCP/IP. IP Telephony, in APRO, also uses TAPI 3.x, which is only available for Windows 2000 (future Windows versions should also support this implementation). TAPI 3.x, in turn, uses H.323 and the Microsoft H.323 TAPI Service Provider, which is installed by default.

IP Telephony includes the transmission of voice and video over the network. The network can be a local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN) or the Internet. This technology offers the capability of establishing real-time conferencing around the globe using existing network topology. Using this technology you can hold a real-time conference (complete with audio and video), telecommuting, distance learning, and video on demand, to name a few of the possibilities.
