Uncapped ADSL takes VOIP to cloud

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Low-cost uncapped ADSL has made it viable to host voice over Internet protocol (VOIP) infrastructure in the cloud.
Industry players say VOIP offers clear possibilities for altering the ways organisations communicate and do business. However, they agree that last-mile constraints still stifle growth in the sector.
Analyst firm Gartner notes that the cloud VOIP market is supported primarily by a fragmented base of second-tier providers. Their cumulative successes are, however, catching the attention of larger providers, which are on the cusp of offering more scalable and feature-rich solutions, says Daniel O'Connell, research director at Gartner.
A recent study conducted by In-Stat predicts that mobile VOIP usage among enterprises will grow to nearly 83 million lines by 2015.
David Meintjes, MD of Connection Telecom, notes that VOIP enables multiple communications and collaboration applications to coexist cost-effectively; such as multimedia conferencing, call centres, instant messaging, e-mail, instant office productivity, and more.
