The 40-page guide targets both technical and non-technical readers. The
first part presents the essentials of telephony over the Internet. For
those interested in the more technical details, hands-on guidelines and
configuration files are included in the second part. The examples
provide essential background to build your own low-cost telephony

The last part demonstrates three realistic scenarios of how Voice over
IP can be deployed in rural communities in developing regions. The
scenarios cover how to build a local telephony system and how to connect
it to other voice networks. Through these scenarios, you will learn how
your own local VoIP network, built with inexpensive equipment, can link
to the traditional telephony network and other voice networks anywhere
on the Internet.

The booklet "VoIP-4D Primer, Building Voice Infrastructure in developing
regions" is written by IT +46, a Swedish consultancy company focusing on
innovative usage of IT technology in the developing world.

The work has been possible thanks to support from the Acacia Initiative
of the International Development Research Centre of Canada and the
contribution of several translators and reviewers.
