This dissertation mainly looked into all aspects of VoIP communications technology and information presented in preceding chapters, which build up a super frame work to discuss the conceptual design model and investigate features that could be incorporated for actual projects, with parameters that are tested on field values, the dissertation follows a five course model, for answering different questions, around central issues, that have been crucial to explanation of the topic; starting with a general overview of VoIP technology, analyzing current VoIP performance, identifying security threats, pointing out the solutions to the problems affecting this technology. VoIP stands for voice over internet protocol. Unlike the traditional circuit-committed protocols of the public switched telephone network (PSTN), in VoIP voice signal is compressed and converted to digital voice packets, VoIP then uses the Internet Protocol (IP) for managing voice packets over IP network. Therefore, VoIP can be deployed on any IP enabled data network, such as the Internet, Ethernet, fabric or wireless network
