You'll want to set up a set of SIP servers in a data center. A good place to start for this is to use the SIP Express Router and related products. You can find out more information on the Iptel.org website.

If you are looking to use physical handsets rather than just SIP soft phones to make calls, you should look into small analog telephony gateways that allow for connections to analog phones -- one possibility might be the Leadtek Research Inc website. You may also want to look into different models of SIP phones to offer customers.

In the destination countries where you wish to allow call termination, partnerships must be developed. You will likely negotiate with local providers in a country a certain amount of traffic -- minutes per month -- and associated rates. Once those relationships are established, you can then offer your service to your customers with the appropriate price mark up to suit your business model -- and what the local market will bear. That is what is involved at a higher level.
