Meaning Of The Word 'Skype': What is it?

Skype.com


World's largest unlimited free VOIP international video conferencing and audio free call provider to the world is known as the SKYPE! A strange name, quoting Shakespeare: "What's in a name? That which we call a rose" ...

Did you ever tried to cut the knot that what actually SKYPE means? Well Skype's nomenclature is bit interesting,

According to Skype Blog:

"it's a Chuvash word ... meaning "The whole world can talk for free" ....

When the founders of VOIP Skype Niklas and few other mates started this innovative world calling project, they perhaps have one and only thing in their respective mind and that was, to make the whole of the globe talk for free, hence they were in a need for a name accordingly which could truly provide a 'soul' to their innovation most artistically and creatively,

While going through the nomenclature process, one of the names which popped up was: "Sky peer-to-peer" (P2P or peer to peer is the core technology behind the Skype VOIP calling and is provided by a company Joltid), subsequently "Sky peer-to-peer" got shortened as "Skyper".

But when some domain names were searched for the name SKYPER, few were already booked, Oops! Whats now, than makers of Skype did thought to remove the letter "r" and shortened it further to device the word: "Skype". Cheers!!! It sounds pretty cool and voila all the relevant the domains too were available!!!

...So SKYPE was the next word for the communication world!

In the beginning like everything, people disliked or misunderstood the word SKYPE, they got to asked, "Skype, what is it? A bird? perhaps a disease?" or what the heck it is?

But when with the time guys over the world and WWW learned Skype revolution, power and innovation the name SKYPE seems no boundaries : ) for Skype, the Sky was the limit, it was the beginning of a new Skypian era : )

http://share.skype.com/sites/en/2005/11/origin_of_the_nameword_skype.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skype

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080108090828AAjpMO3

Whatever may be the literal meaning of the word SKYPE, but to the common World this SKYPE word simply denotes, VOIP calling or web video call conferencing or Free Internet IP call or simply a business which means fastest and most innovative P2P communications which even transact / sans the national borders : )

Why is there a SOS for Skype from Joltid on P2P?

Skype is 'going'; Long Live Skype!

VOIP is the future, Skype is the King of VOIP, and Skype is in s BIG trouble! Can you imagine living without Skype VOIP Free Internet calling?

Skype VOIP Brief:

Well, the heading of this post is neither the jugglery of the words, nor its a riddle or a puzzle, as we know E-Bay's IP telephone or Internet telephony is known as SKYPE, the most innovative and popular VOIP software around the globe having 405+ million worlwide members : )

Brand Skype is a popular VOIP (Voice-Over-Internet -Protocol) call provider to the world, created in 2003 by Estonians, its a company owned by E-Bay Inc. (Skype founder Niklas Zennstrom & Janus Friis sold this most innovative and valuable VOIP platform to the Ebay for $2.6 billion in 2005), Skype VOIP works on a core technology: P2P (peer to peer) technology and this P2P is provided to Skype via another company named as JOLTID (Skype founder Niklas Zennstrom & Janus Friis did not included P2P technology in his 'SKYPE selling package' while selling the Skype to the E-Bay, it was like selling the Mc-Donald’s for billions of dollars without disclosing any recipes of its popular Burgers an all : ) , why did E-Bay buyed Skype without P2P core licence is a big question? )

...the relations between E-Bay and Joltid are at stake right now over the patent and licencing dispute, read more...

www.skype.com

www.joltid.com

People do at-least two things daily in their 'Second Life' / or at the Virtual world; the first thing is the Google search and the another one is Skype VOIP worldwide calling,

...IP Gurus say that Skype could be forced to shut down its VOIP operations as its (E-Bay's) licensing agreement with its P2P (peer to peer technology) providing company name: JOLTID (Joltid was established in 2001, by team or Estonian creators of Kazaa) is at the stakes,

P2P company Joltid had accused eBay that they had changed a software code, "Global Index" used in the system to deliver P2P, and according to JOLTID this is clearly against the agreed terms, thus eBay came to a legal action against JOLTID P2P provider, E-Bay says that P2P providing software to Skype lease could not be terminated!

http://andyabramson.blogs.com/voipwatch/2009/08/why-jolt-id-isnt-that-important-to-skype-but-is-to-ebay.html

The tech giants are at a legal war and the legal jugglery of the words had overridden or has taken whole of the tech / international video call-VOIP world, Internet telephony is seems to be lurching in the pockets of smart shareholders, lawyers and barristers for now!

Skype and E-Bay had also started the work on an alternative but an undisclosed technology to fill the gap of JOLTID'S-P2P, if they fails in the legal battle with JOLTID,

Lets the Skype Free Call rocks, communication is vital and much vital when its free and sans boundaries, let it not stop and let it not be the part of a legal controversy, we Love Skype, let the Skype ring, Long Live VOIP-Skype : )

Funambol-MVOIP for Mobile Cloud Sync, Open Source Solution

www.funambol.com

http://blogs.zdnet.com/open-source/?p=4595



www.fiercevoip.com/story/funambols-launches-cloud-sync-solution-mobile-voip/2009-08-03



Funambol.com (originally from Italy now in California, US) is an open source software, which specializes in cellular / mobile cloud sync / mobile software meant for synchronizing the mobile devices, their claim is that they serve over 2 billion of them : )


Funambol announced that it will have a service that permits mobile VOIP or MVOIP uses to meld contacts from a number of end points like from: emails, mobile phone contact directories, social networks etc,

this mobile VOIP cloud sync service, will sell through to mobile VoIP service providers, and would help mobile VoIP users to have an enhanced access, more contact info thus will increase the use and utility of their respective mobile VoIP service.

...and they say that Funambol mobile VOIP cloud sync is perhaps the only mobile cloud sync company that offers this kinda service, that’s too for free, with Google's Sync, Apple MobileMe, Nokia's Ovi Sync, Microsoft's MyPhone etc, they all are competing for their respective market shares already in free cloud sync software niche....

Interesting VOIP Terminology

Ref.: http://blogs.zdnet.com/open-source/?p=4595

Cloud: A cloud is a big hosting centre. Your stuff no longer runs on a particular computer using a specific operating system. It’s just in the system somewhere. It’s in the cloud.

Sync: is short for synchronize. Synchronizing, in this case, means making two things the same. The file here is the same as the file there, and they’re kept the same even after one side changes.

Mobile: is what Europeans call cell phones or cell-like devices. Funambol was originally Italian, but they’re now based in Redwood City, Calif. I think there is an Olive Garden in Palo Alto.”...

In Bangladesh, VOIP-IP-3G Calling Cleared Finally

BANGLADESH: After a long wait now finally Bangla Govt. / Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) announced to issue the 3G, VOIP / voice-over-internet protocol telephony licences to internet service providers (ISPs).

First batch of 32 VoIP concessions will be followed by some more licence awards later!

VOIP Calling legally will soon start in BanglaDesh now : ) . Now according to news sources, perhaps 200+ illegal VOIP service providers are working in Bangla nation, by connecting the international call by pre paid cards via VSAT links etc and using VSAT for voice calling is banned under IPTSP rulings,

According to the TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database notes, to get qualified for new 15-year IP telephony service provider (IPTSP) licences, an ISP must fulfil a series of minimum pre requisites, like a Nationwide / Central Zone IPTSP concession requires the ISPs to have 2,000 existing customers.

IPTSP concessions covers both the international and local / domestic voice phone call using internet and managed IP-based networks, it also includes all type of IP call: phone-to-phone, PC-to-PC, PC-to-phone and phone-to-PC.
