Abstract Since its emergence in the mid-1990s, voice-over-IP products and services have mainly attempted to mimic the "black phone" of decades past, providing cheaper basic phone service. However, VoIP has the potential to significantly improve real-time communications if it is combined with presence, context-aware and location-based services. Peer-to-peer networks can allow building highly-scalable, self-configuring systems. This talk will give a broad overview of VoIP, including its IMS variant, and some of the advanced services that are now in development, standardization or starting to appear as products.

Bio Prof. Schulzrinne co-developed protocols such as RTP, RTSP and SIP, are now Internet standards, used by almost all Internet telephony and multimedia applications. His research interests include Internet multimedia systems, ubiquitous computing, mobile systems, quality of service, and performance evaluation.
