Network infrastructure developments made by NIIF in the early 2000s allowed to establish reliable and cost effective, IP based telephony solution. The main VoIP (Voice over IP) service has been started in 2003, engaging more than 30 member institutes. Phone calls between connected institutions are free of charge (these calls are routed via our HBONE core network). We have contracts with domestic telco partners to transmit calls to PSTN/PLMN networks, to any endpoint around the globe. Telco partners are selected via public procurement processes, resulting low fares.
Nowadays, nearly 80 member institutions (most of the Hungarian colleges/universities and research institutes) are connected to our VoIP network.
