What is IP?

About IP

To IP or not IP?
In truth, it’s not really much of a question. For IP will soon be so interwoven with the business of supplying security communications that such questions will cease to be relevant.

And that’s not simply because it’s a better, more flexible way of doing things than the old analogue systems – although it is - it’s because the world’s telecoms system is changing – and when it does, analogue comms, in all but the most obscure situations simply won’t exist.

So then, what is the fuss all about? Is it something to worry about? How does it work? And what are the real concerns, financial as well a practical, that it presents to all of us in the security industry?
