The type of broadband available to you depends on what technology the providers in your area offer. The four most common types of residential broadband service are:
1. Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL), which transmit data through phone lines without interfering with telephone service. Local phone companies typically offer DSL services; in some areas, other internet service providers also offer DSL services.
2. Cable modems, which provide access to the internet over cable lines without interfering with your cable television service. Cable modem internet access services typically are offered by the same companies that offer cable TV services in your area.
3. Fiber optic broadband, which is a new and faster type of broadband service. The same fiber optic line providing your broadband service simultaneously can deliver phone and video (television) services. Fiber optic broadband is currently available only in certain areas.
4. Mobile wireless broadband services, which are available from mobile telephone service providers. Such services are accessible through certain wireless telephones and PDA devices (personal digital assistants). They also can be accessed using a computer with a built-in or plug-in air card.

I was heartened this week to see some of the sharpest minds I know in cloud telephony and unified communications get together with the acquisition of Teleku by Voxeo. Teleku and Voxeo’s Tropo service are complimentary ones that offer lots of goodies for developers, and I’m anxious to see what these guys will be cooking up now that they have joined forces. Congrats to all involved!
While there is lots of discussion about what this acquisition means for the constantly changing landscape of cloud telephony, this move validates (in my mind) some of the important trends that will determine which cloud telephony companies will be around for the long-term and how developers will use their services.
None of this is new - I’ve said it all before. It is worth noting, however, that all of the trends that I’ve observed before that are going to make the difference in the cloud telephony space are ones that both Tropo and Teleku do very well.
Portability - underscored not only by Teleku’s support for the open standard VoiceXML, but also the Tropo crew’s involvement in the Asterisk world, and the defacto standard for building Asterisk apps in Ruby - Adhearsion.
SIP integration - remember this kids: true cloud telephony has SIP baked in - the rest is just marketing fluff. Both Tropo and Teleku support SIP interoperability and make it very easy for developers to use SIP as part of their applications.
Multi-channel / multi-modality - Both Tropo and Teleku have big multi-modal chops. Being able to interact with users on multiple communication channels from one code base is a key tenet of unified communications and cloud telephony, and this will become increasingly important in the future.
Speech recognition - cloud telephony isn’t your grandfather’s way to build a phone app, so why should users be restricted to their grandfather’s way of interacting with a phone app? Speech recognition is fully supported in both Tropo and Teleku, and this will matter more and more to cloud telephony developers going forward.
So if you’re wondering what the next change in the cloud telephony landscape will be, you can bet that one of these trends will dictate the change.

One step closer to SIP integration, or at least Asterisk integration using the chan_gtalk module: yesterday, Google added PSTN calling to their GMail-embedded Talk/Chat product.
Making a call from the GMail-embedded talk client uses a linked Google Voice account, thus call history appears in the Voice dashboard and the caller ID is the Google Voice number. Interesting.
This functionality doesn't seem to appear in the standalone Google Talk client, nor does the web module appear directly in Google Voice. The only way to make a non-telephone-integrated call (that is, it doesn't utilize your Gizmo5 account, land line, or cell phone) is to do so through GMail chat. I have to wonder why it didn't appear in the Google Voice web interface first, or the standalone Talk client, but suspect that these will be coming. SIP integration still seems to be at least two or three steps away.

As far as VoIP has been in introduced in Voice telephone calls, faxing over VoIP still has a lot of benefits.
Faxing on a Voice VoIP line is possible but not its usage is very minimal. You can fax a page over your Voice VoIP line but it may take several technologies to accomplish. The reason is when the fax tone is compressed into packets, there is packet loss. Packet loss on a voice is not very critical compared to little packet loss, we can still hear and understand what the person is conversing. But, when there is packet loss or packet transmission on a fax, there is a chance of mess up the fax. This results in a bad fax, error message, or even a dropped call. When we send over a Fax Codec, the loss of packets is minimized and faxes generally reaches to its destination. But in the case of a large fax where it goes up to 10 pages there is a chance of a losing of Fax. It is recommended that a users who is planning on faxing is better to get a fax machine which also doubles as a scanner and can also convert potential faxes into a .PDF file.
