                             Call for Papers
             Special Issue of IEEE COMMUNICATION MAGAZINE on

                            Internet Telephony

Due to the potential economic advantages, the integration of several media
is desirable and very attractive. Today, however, voice over IP remains
somewhat of a technical novelty, hindred by a number of existing problems
to provide an assured voice quality. The likely prognosis is that over the
next year or two, the advent of Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) and
increased enterprise network bandwidth (achieved with ATM WAN services)
could give a boost to voice over IP. This special issue is to bring
experts in the field to share with IEEE COMMUNICATION MAGAZINE readers the
current problems, components, and experiments in "Internet Telephony".
Desirable features of a voice-over-IP system include:

* Optimal use of bandwidth.
* Capacity management.
* Support of speech quality.
* Flexible integration into voice environment (e.g., PBX).
* Enterprise network ready (support LAN/WAN/Internet protocols for direct
* System-level scalability: must be easy to add PBX-side interfaces to
  support growth in requirements and appropriate links.
* Network-level scalability: must be able to support mapping of a sufficient
  number of extensions (perhaps several thousands) to the respective IP
  addresses of the destination gateway. A master database with distributed
  upgrade may be desirable.
