VoIP deployment is a major IT infrastructure undertaking. Experienced IT Project managers know that you just cannot deploy new technology overnight on the existing network and hope that the performance will be satisfactory. VoIP applications are intolerant of packet loss, latency, jitter, congestion etc. that are acceptable issues on most data networks. VoIP applications require a network that can support real-time data exchange, unlike applications such as e-mail that may just run slowly on a network with these problems. Many of these same network problems will cause poor quality for VoIP or cause it not to work at all. Like any other major IT undertaking, implementing VoIP requires a detailed implementation and deployment plan.
