VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol and is a way to carry voice traffic over computer networks like the Internet. Over the last decade VoIP has become increasingly popular, gaining millions of subscribers every year (e.g. LINE and WECHAT provide voice call facilities) and has certainly caught the eye of telecommunication service providers all over the world.
