Expert Patrick Ferriter: Open standards to rule
The majority of all new VoIP and networking products introduced to the market in 2005 will be based on open standards and the number of VoIP deployments in enterprises will continue to grow at a fast pace. Wireless LAN deployments will increase in number with the increase in VoIP deployments, as VoIP is one of the major reasons to deploy a wireless LAN. Many new Internet telephony service providers (ITSPs) will appear and will provide SIP-based services to businesses, replacing traditional connections to the PSTN. Businesses of all sizes will begin to sign up and receive service from these ITSPs to get better rates when calling most destinations. In general, businesses will become more aware of the benefits of VoIP for their company, namely gains in productivity and a reduction in overall costs.
