VoIP the Final Frontier

Cisco Systems has boldly gone where no other VoIP company could go.

The incorporated company used an Internet router in orbit to make the first VoIP telephone call from space. No terrestrial infrastructure was used to route the call.

The experiment was part of the Cisco Internet Routing in Space (IRIS) program.

Cisco stated: “The use of satellites for such calls will make them more efficient. Software such as the Intelsat 14 can be upgraded from the ground while the router is in orbit."
