Voice over IP (VoIP) is the telephone system of the future. Problem is, VoIP is not yet widely deployed, so there are few skilled practitioners today. As you make your move to VoIP, how will you know how to make VoIP work and keep it working well? What changes will you need to make without disrupting your business? How can you show your return on this investment?

Many books contain technical details about VoIP, but few explain in plain language how to make it run successfully in an enterprise. Taking Charge of Your VoIP Project provides the detailed plans you need to be successful in your organization’s deployment of VoIP. Through their years of work in the field, authors John Q. Walker and Jeffrey T. Hicks bring a project-oriented approach to VoIP, with much-needed clarity on getting VoIP to work well.

Taking Charge of Your VoIP Project starts with simple concepts, each chapter building on the knowledge from the last. Although not a technical manual, you learn about the standards, such as H.323, G.711, and Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP), and the implications they have on your VoIP system. Most importantly, you’ll gain expert advice and a systematic guide on how to make VoIP work for your organization.

This volume is in the Network Business Series offered by Cisco Press. Books in this series provide IT executives, decision makers, and networking professionals with pertinent information on today’s most important technologies and business strategies.

Ooma: The New Way to Call
Switching to Ooma lets you enjoy all the benefits of a local and long distance telephone service, but without the high costs or monthly bills. By adding an Ooma Telo to your landline and to your high-speed Internet service, you can make calls anywhere in the United States for free, without any monthly charges. At the same time, international calls will be pennies on the dollar. And by replacing your landline with an Ooma Telo Cordless Handset, you can immediately access all the great calling features that Ooma offers.

DECT 6.0 Technology for Maximum Clarity
The Ooma Telo’s sound quality has often been described as “better than a landline.” With the Ooma Handset, you’ll enjoy even greater clarity. It features DECT 6.0 technology, which guarantees reception and security without interfering with your local Wi-Fi network. It also maximizes your handset’s range, allowing you to wander freely about your house while talking.

Advanced Voicemail Features
The Ooma Handset helps you make the most of Ooma’s superior voicemail options. At the touch of a button, you can listen to your voicemail from anywhere in your house. If you’re screening your calls, you can activate the “Do Not Disturb” mode and forward all of your calls to voicemail. You can even record your calls to voicemail by pressing the “Sent to Voicemail” button after you’ve picked up the phone.

Online Phonebook Access
The Ooma Handset allows you to download your entire online phonebook and access it at any time. You’ll be able to look up and dial numbers from anywhere in the house, without having to refer to your address book first.

Caller ID for Effective Call Screening
With the Ooma Handset, you’ll know who’s calling before you answer the phone. The Ooma Handset displays the incoming caller’s number, allowing you to avoid unwanted calls. If you don’t recognize the caller, you’ll have the option to listen to their message first and then decide whether you want to pick up.

Instant Second Line
If you share your house with a phone hog, Ooma’s Instant Second Line feature presents a solution for you. When the line is already in use, you can simply pick up a second Ooma Handset and get a fresh dial tone. Up to two separate calls can be made simultaneously.

Personal Number
With an affordable Ooma Premier subscription, you’ll gain access to the Personal Number feature. This feature allows you to create a unique phone number for everyone in the family. Multiple numbers can be mapped to the same handset, but you can make each number ring distinctively so you know who the call is for. Up to nine additional numbers are allowed.

Add Unwanted Callers to Your Blacklist
The Ooma Handset also allows you to instantly add unwanted callers to your blocked list. If telemarketers are harassing you, simply press the “Blacklist” button to avoid future calls.

Loud, Clear Speakerphone
The Ooma Handset features a built-in speakerphone with loud and crisp sound. When you need to multitask, just activate the speakerphone for hands-free conversation.

Intercom
With the intercom feature, you can use multiple Ooma handsets like walkie-talkies to communicate with family members from room to room. You can also use the intercom to transfer calls between different handsets.

Detailed Call Log
The Ooma Handset’s detailed call log helps you keep a meticulous record of your phone history. It allows you to view all incoming calls, outgoing calls, and call duration.
