The marketplace for VoIP devices continues to grow in both consumer as well as corporate and business marketplaces. Stemming from the technology's numerous useful features including voice to email, many telephony buyers are selecting VoIP over traditional land lines.
As a matter of fact, the shift is so substantial that officials from the Federal Communications Commission are seriously considering phasing out traditional land line systems.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the FCC is expected to
vote on allowing national telecom companies to evaluate the viability of VoIP as a replacement of traditional copper land line networks. One of the main reasons for this development is the fact that the legacy system is outdated as well as deteriorated, a consequence of natural disasters as well as normal wear-and-tear.
What is more important is the fact that VoIP is a remarkably effective technology that can, in fact, improve connectivity. Due to the fact that it is connected over the Internet, there can be some outages on this technology but, for the most part, it is extremely reliable.
As a matter of fact, it is even possible for calls to be seamlessly forwarded to cellular phones, which makes it highly desirable for on-the-go professionals as well as consumers.
Reports show that the demand for VoIP has increased at a rapid rate over the last few years. To illustrate, a 2012 report from Infonetics Research revealed that the global service provider revenue from business and residential/SOHO VoIP services totaled nearly $58 billion in 2011, up 16% from the previous year and the number of users is expected to more than double between 2012 & 2016.
