2007 The Year of Business VoIP?
All of the Factors are Here…
VoIP Supply colleague Cory Andrews pointed me to a posting by Andy Abramson, on the “untapped business VoIP market”. I could not agree more with Andy’s findings, based on this ZDNet Report, that 2007 and 2008 will be the year Business VoIP explodes. Since 2004, we have seen heavy growth in the residential VoIP, and to a certain degree the hosted VoIP sectors, mainly fueled by aggressive marketing by VoIP service providers chasing early adopters. Over the past six months though, the amount of inbound inquires from networking integrators, VAR, consultants, and vendors about business VoIP, has increased ten fold, further asserting the “interest” in the technology has finally caught up with the “implementation” aspect of the technology.
Provided that hardware vendors continue to develop easy-to-use and easy-to-implement solutions, coupled with reliable, high quality voice from service providers, there is no doubt that inthe next 12 -18 months we will see a mass migration to VoIP from businesses across the globe.
