Global - Analysis - Infrastructure - VoIP - 2004


At BuddeComm’s Roundtables in June 2003 and March 2004, we discussed the effect that VoIP will have on the market – looking at it from an incumbent’s point of view, from a challenger’s point of view, and also from the direction that ISPs and BSPs are taking. These last companies currently don’t provide voice services at all. Obviously they would all like to take their cues from the corporate markets where VoIP is well and truly on the way to becoming the norm for voice traffic. In this report, Paul critically discusses the conclusions drawn from these round table discussions. This report was superseded by Global - VoIP - Overview.
