Saving money by using IP communications instead of the plain old telephone system (POTS) is nothing new and
can be considered standard these days with over 60% of all calls being placed that way. However, few people are

concurrent analog calls simultaneously, the majority of IP calls can be recorded and processed with relative ease
and little cost.
As the effort to do so decreases, listening in on IP communications becomes more tempting than it has ever been
before. Depending on the topic of the conversation, an irreversible loss of information could have devastating
consequences for businesses of all kinds, as well as government and military organizations. As going back to the
