The Future of VoIP: A U.S. Evolution

The continued development of VoIP-- and specifically wireless VoIP--technology has created a hopeful future for the U.S. market. According to a report which investigates the developments of the VoIP Market in the US, Visiongain, provider of interviews, features and in-depth analysis, found that the incredibly low cost of VoIP is the “major driving factor for its adoption.”  With companies now capable of offering the benefits of VoIP technology at a fraction of the cost of traditional services, many consumers are buying in.

When VoIP was first introduced it faced many obstacles. Establishing itself among the vast sea of well-trusted fixed-line companies and proving its equal capabilities came only before FCC regulations called for Enhanced 911 and CALEA compliances. And though security and emergency issues continue to arise, VoIP providers are gaining popularity as they quickly answer to the call.

Over the last few years VoIP developers have sought new methods for optimizing phone quality and technology that would surpass traditional fixed-line capabilities. In doing so, they have been able to offer elimination of costly telephone bills for those running businesses and for those homeowners wanting to avoid extra monthly surcharges. Cable companies too, have taken on VoIP and now offer faster, better broadband services. With the development of VoWiFi and VoLAN (voice over wireless LAN) even cell phones are becoming VoIP enabled.

The future of VoIP doesn’t show signs of slowing down either. As companies continue to develop phones, services and plans that incorporate this technology, the potential of VoIP will only continue to evolve.
