A peer-to-peer VoIP call occurs when two VoIP phones communicate directly over IP without IP PBXs between them (Figure 1). A peer-to-peer call can be initiated directly, by calling a phone's SIP URI, or indirectly by dialing a phone number. A peer-to-peer call will only be established when a phone number is dialed if both phones share an IP PBX. For an audio call, there is no difference (in end user experience) between a peer-to-peer call and one that uses an IP PBX.
