The Origins of H.323 and SIP In 1995, researchers began looking for ways to exchange audio and video data between computers.

PBXs centralize collections of phone lines under one or more DIDs—sometimes referred to as virtual phone numbers or direct dial in numbers—allowing callers to contact the system’s top level, navigating the different…
