The communication on the Internet was becoming increasingly important in recent years and a large number of people took advantage of the wide range of communications products. Since the communication in the Internet grows, VoIP contributes a large part of this. Voice over IP (VoIP) describes the transmission of voice in real time over an IP-based network. Via analog/digital converter (ADC) on the microphone the recorded signals are converted into a digital format. After that the uptake is encoded in an audio format. The type of format and level of compression determine the future quality of speech. Once connected with a receiver built in, the data stream is continuously packed into packets and sent over the network sent.
Skype is a popular peer-to-peer VoIP client that provides both video telephony, conference circuit, instant messaging and file transfer. It is a piece of software that allows people around the world to talk to each other for free. Skype is everything that a telco is not: generous, interested and proactive. There are millions of Skype users, and the numbers are growing exponentially.
The holiday season is just around the corner and for some people, keeping in touch with the loved ones by seeing and talking to them seems to be as important as sharing cards and gifts. Maybe some of them will missing out on something essential because a lot of people are out of home these days. That’s why Skype comes in to fix this problem by offering travelers in airports across the U.S. a great opportunity to connect with their family and friends for free. They offer a free hour of Internet access to third-party wireless hotspots within the Skype WiFi hotspot footprint in select airports across the U.S. from December 21st thru December 27th 2011. The Skype to Skype calls are free, but a PC to landline or mobile phone calls costs a little. To start a conversation, you must have the latest version of Skype for Windows or Skype for Mac on laptop or install the Skype WiFi app on your iOS device, and then simply sign in the program or app as usual.
