The application of network voice technology to Navy and DoD telecommunications offers possibilities for highly integrated communications services including voice, data, and video while maintaining interoperability with legacy communication systems. The need for network voice technology can be understood by considering the level of voice integration being achieved in contemporary shipboard backbone networks. Voice transport across shipboard Asynchronous Transfer Mode ATM networks being installed under the Navys Information Technology for the 21st Century IT-21 initiative is limited to using the ATM Forums Circuit Emulation standard. Using Internet Protocol IP and Application Programming Interfaces APO for conducting H.323 multimedia conferencing sessions to handle shipboard voice traffic is an attractive option for overcoming this limitation. In this paper, we identify options available for developing network voice applications for military communication systems. A specific example of applying network voice technology for developing a solution for interoperating with legacy shipboard communications is discussed.
