While starting as an experimental research topic in the early seventies VoIP went through different stages before becoming a commodity service competing with the circuit switched telephony and in some cases even replacing it. In this chapter we give a brief overview of the major developments in the area of voice over IP (VoIP) and look at the major milestones and competing standards. We further give a short look into the latest developments and recent applications and deployment scenarios.
