Note: If you’re looking for a VoIP discussion forum, please try here: Techwatch: VoIP Forums
There are many VoIP Forums and other user groups, but before discussing any individual group or forums, let’s see the VoIP Forum. The VoIP Forum coordinates efforts with a second IMTC activity group that is enabling interoperability of Internet telephony products based on the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) H.323 standard.
The H.323 standard defines protocols for transmission of video, voice and data over an IP network. The IMTC’s H.323 activity group, which in October held the first interoperability testing event for H.323-based multimedia conferencing products, will incorporate into its implementation guidelines the full telephony service requirements developed by the VoIP Forum.
The VoIP Forum was founded in May 1996 to ensure product interoperability and a high quality of service for Internet telephony products. The group’s mission is to define and promote a simple implementation agreement, in an open forum setting, for voice and voiceband data traffic over an IP network. In October 1996, the VoIP Forum joined the IMTC and now operates as one of the IMTC’s activity groups.
There is another VoIP Forum. The Federal Communications Commission announces a VoIP Forum to discuss Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). All FCC Commissioners will participate. The hearing is open to the public, and seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The purpose of the VoIP Forum is to gather information concerning advancements, innovations, and regulatory issues related to VoIP services.
Submissions to the VoIP Forum: Submissions to the VoIP Forum were accepted through Monday, December 15, 2003 are now part of the VoIP Forum’s record and are available to the public. They are not a part of the record of any current proceeding unless separately submitted to that proceeding.
Security for the VoIP Forum: Please note that the FCC is a federal building with security. All attendees will be required to pass through security. The FCC’s Commission Meeting Room will be opened early to facilitate access to the building; attendees are encouraged to allocate additional time to enter the building.
