German translation:see below
Explanation:
voice over IP: transmission of voice call via Internet Protocoll - so "Internet Telefonie" is ok.

ASP can mean: Active Server Page - "Aktive Server-Seite" or Application Service Provider" - "Firma, die via Internet den Usern Zugriff auf Applikationen (application) ermöglicht." (Internet Woerterbuch, url below)

call forward: Anrufweiterleitung

3-way call: Konferenzschaltung mit 3 Teilnehmern. Often in Internet voice call processing, a third party can participate in the call, for instance, a customer speaks with a customer service representative, and the supervisor joins in the conversation.

CATV: cable TV - Kabelfernsehen

Explanation:
* voice over IP

This seems to refer to telephone conversations that are transmitted over the internet; I a mnot aware of the specilized term here. You might want to try "Internet Telephonie"

* ASP
Active Server Pages; a specific way of creating interactive web-pages using a scripting language - I wouldn't translate it.

Alternatively, it could mean "as soon as possible", I've seen it instead of ASAP before.

* call forward
Anrufweiterleitung

* 3-way calls
Konferenzschaltung?

If that doesn't help I'll see if i can find web references later today.

HTH,

Rasmus.
