Tom Keating writes about the humble beginnings of VoIP

Tom Keating writes about the humble beginnings of VoIP and is absolutely correct in saying that it was first written about in TMC's CTI Magazine in 1996. What surprises me is how much coverage we gave this nascent field. I did some searches on back issues and it is interesting that the term Internet telephony was very popular in those days and VoIP was hardly ever used. I thought it would be beneficial to post one of these old issues (Jan-Feb 1997) of CTI Magazine online for all to see. Kind of nostalgic. There are hardly any companies from this issue left standing. Truth be told many have been acquired and others just vanished. Many of the companies in this issue were the true pioneers of VoIP.
