The Convergence of Telephone and Data Networks
The development of computer-assisted information and communications systems is being guided by a vision of convergence between previously separated communications systems and networks (data networks, telephony networks, wireless networks, etc). Internet protocols have established themselves as a significant integration tool, as they are already widely spread across the globe and—in principle, at least—can be used across most all networks, services, and applications. DFNFernsprechen offers modern telecommunications services based on IP-technology.
