With the development of network, multimedia will be the main application in next generation network. Voice is one of the most important applications. Recently a kind of P2P-based VoIP software, Skype, has been receiving more and more attention both in academia and industry. Skype claims that it's better than other VoIP software, because of its high call completion rate and superior sound quality.
