Voip technology is no longer a "niche" technology used by college "geeks" and IT lovers to make free phone calls between PC's. It has gradually become a mainstream tool, mainly due to the large availability on the lnternet of free
software to establish a direct and immediate "server'-''client'' connection.

Very common software just like Skipe are at the moment very popular not only in a "private" environment but also for commercial and business purpose.

Many large firms use Voip technology for internal communication purpose, during broadcast meetings and videoconferences specifically for cost saving and time saving reasons. On the other hand successful firms, such as Google and Ebay, are now taking advantage of the wide range of features offered by Voip applications for their existing business models: this commercial potential is still to be discovered and investigated.

Therefore the purpose of this research is not only to offer a general view of how this infrastructure works and how it is effecting our private lives as consumers, but mainly to try to understand how Voip can and will generate revenue in a business environment. So to say its “commercial potential”.
