As time goes by, more and more businesses are realizing the benefits associated with utilizing business VoIP. This increasingly popular trend shows no sign of slowing down as unified communications capabilities continue to grow.
Dave Dadds, deputy chairman of the Federation of Communication Services of Vanillaip.com, wholeheartedly agrees with this statement and said in a recent article that businesses will continue to use business VoIP by "default" in years to come.
Dadds added that business VoIP solutions will continue to increase since many firms will be completing both large and small deployments when replacing their telephony systems. He also revealed that the technology will eventually replace traditional methods of communication because of the flexibility and other advantages that come with cloud services.
"VoIP has been around for some time, but the pickup gets greater and greater every year and as businesses realize the benefits that VoIP gives," he commented in a statement.
It seems that it’s not just the U.S. hopping onto the business VoIP train, as countries around the world such as the Kingdom of Bahrain-based airline Gulf Air has just kicked off an innovative program that will enable passengers to gain access to VoIP services while in the air.
Recent statistics provided by Infonetics Research (News - Alert) depict that there will be an estimated 17 percent increase within the business VoIP market in 2011, when compared to statistics from 2010. The firm is an expert on the subject as it closely analyzes new releases of products and services in the business VoIP industry, commenting that the industry will eventually be worth upwards of $76.1 billion by 2015.
The research firm said in a statement, "The residential segment continues to make up the majority of VoIP services revenue, but the real growth is in the business segment, particularly SIP trunking services and hosted VoIP and unified communication services."
