Several basic telephony concepts are critical to working with these solutions: call control, media processing, in-band and out-of-band signaling, and local, dedicated first-party control versus shared, network-based third-party control. Once these concepts are understood, today?s modular, converged, and increasingly Web-centric communications technologies become easier to understand.
