Over the past few decades, the Internet has become the world's information superhighway, leading to the development of new applications and services. Among them, Voice over IP (VoIP) is one of the most promising industries. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP or IP) telephony is a new way of communication.  This technology allows users to make calls over a network using Internet protocols. This paper will describe VoIP-telephony, to demonstrate the ability of people to communicate through the Internet, which works via satellite links. The research in this paper demonstrates the basic formula of the latency model when using any type of satellite network such as LEO, GEO, and MEO systems for IP-telephony. In addition, this work provides methods for reducing the latency.
