Summary

As you research all of your VoIP options, have you ever wondered who pioneered Voice over Internet Protocol technology? Well, his name is Jeff Pulver, and he started out as a HAM radio operator. Today, he is considered one of the most important players in the Internet communications space.

A recent article on director.startupgrind.com, Greenwich Hosts Jeff Pulver (Father of VoIP), provides an overview of Pulver’s career and promotes an upcoming live event with the man who is credited with being the Father of VoIP, the technology used in most modern corporate communications systems. Here is an excerpt:

“Jeff became interested in Internet telephony in 1995 when he was as a systems administrator at Cantor Fitzgerald. Pulver was co-founder and minority shareholder in VoIP provider Vonage. Pulver also invented the CellSocket, a device to make and receive cellular voice calls via a standard phone, and was listed as a BusinessWeek Tech Guru in 2003.”

In technology time, VoIP is fairly new. But, as more businesses make the switch and landlines continue their march to extinction, it is quickly becoming the leading choice for business communication service.
