Mesh Wireless Given VoIP Treatment

Posted: 15th Apr, 2004 By: MarkJ
LocustWorld has turned its MESH broadband wireless product into a kind of Voice-over-IP switch by adding support for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Mesh boxes are often used by people to share an Internet connection among other residents:

This means that people who use a wireless network that runs on LocustWorld's mesh software will be able to make voice calls over the Internet, rather than using their existing landline.

Everyone connected to the same mesh will be able to call each other for free using VoIP. They will also be able to use the same telephone number regardless of where on the mesh they are connected.

SIP was introduced by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) as a way of simplifying the process of running VoIP connections across the Internet. Networks running SIP can handle VoIP calls regardless of which vendor created the handsets or soft phones.
