Bhutan VoIP Project Report
: "A pilot project to use wireless and VoIP technologies to deliver communication services to rural areas in Bhutan, a small Himalayan Kingdom, was completed with encouraging results. Once initial problems with radio interference from other sources were solved the 802.11b radio network became reliable. This allowed the VoIP equipment to be tuned to accommodate the more variable nature of a wireless network as compared to a wired one. International calls through the PSTN were hampered by a slightly non standard R2 protocol spoken by the local switch. This underscores the importance of adhering to open standards when many subsystems must work together." 3:44:32 PM
