Google buys a VoIP company, might build a Skype competitor

“The Web is evolving quickly as a development platform, and real-time video and audio communication over the Internet are becoming important new tools for users”.




Google on Tuesday said it will acquire Global IP Solutions Holding, which makes processing software for voice and video over IP, for $68.2 million. The deal means that Google will own the voice and video conferencing engine behind its competitors’ instant messaging systems.


GIPS is an established player that currently provides Internet calling for companies including Oracle, Samsung, Yahoo!, and AOL, and it could add a lot to Google's current VoIP offerings (which are built into Google Talk)
