High-Level Network Architecture and VoiceXML
Understanding the network will give you a better feeling for constraints on your voice applications and help you develop better-behaved VoiceXML. This article describes the interaction of high-level network architecture and VoiceXML.

How does VoiceXML enable you to write speech applications? There's
obviously more to it than providing a language specification. It's possible
to write VoiceXML applications without understanding many of the internals of
how the network delivers content to users. However, some understanding of the
network will give you a better feeling for constraints on your applications and
help you develop better-behaved VoiceXML.
