Predictions for Unified Communications in 2015, Part 2
Welcome to 2015, and to part two of our annual predictions for Unified Communications in the coming year. In part one of our predictions, we talked about continued growth for IP Telephony and UC endpoints, softphones, VoLTE, and progress on replacing the PSTN with VoIP. Today, we'll cover video, WebRTC's likely advances and roadblocks, some roadblocks Skype for Business could face, the saga of net neutrality, and the issue of voice over Wi-Fi as a substitute for legacy carrier voice services.Late last year, President Obama proposed that the FCC regulate broadband services under Title II service of the 1934 Telecommunications Act.

Predictions for Unified Communications in 2015, Part 1

We'll start with what is a clear 2014 trend that will continue in 2015: the growing adoption of cloud-based UC.See also: All of Network World's look ahead to 2015 Most cloud providers have reported double-digit growth this year of their IP Telephony (IPT) and UC portfolios, while premise-based systems growth remains in the high single digits year-over-year. We attribute this to both to the adoption of stand-alone cloud services, plus the adoption of cloud-based UC as a hybrid solution that also includes premise-based components. We expect to see continued UC endpoint growth as organizations move beyond simple IPT, especially in hybrid solutions that integrate cloud-based UC with private IPT systems.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
