As far as i know:

It's phone system that support voip such as 3com super stack NBX 100 which i have in my network, with it's phones (Basic, Business) that can be configured to assign IP add,
Enough bandwidth that can handle the voice over Internet protocol.
Someone who will configure the VoIP protocols e.g. "H323"

I believe these Links will answer your question in more details:
