Mobile VoIP Applications on the Rise in Businesses

Voice-over-IP (VoIP) has revolutionized voice communication services over the past several years and has reduced long-distance calling costs for both residential and business broadband subscribers. It's now spreading from the traditional landline applications to the mobile phone user.

Usage is on the rise, creating significant opportunity for mobile VoIP gateway equipment suppliers -- as expenditures in this space are expected to soar beyond the $6 billion mark in 2015, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

"Mobile VoIP has only recently begun being implemented in the business environment," says Amy Cravens, Market Analyst at In-Stat.

One of the key benefits of mobile VoIP for enterprises is extending desk phone functionality to mobile devices. Business-oriented solutions will essentially enable the user's  mobile phones to become an extension of their desk phones and will deliver, in addition to voice, a unified communications experience -- including email, IM, and online collaboration.

In-Stat's latest market study findings include:

- Business mobile VoIP users will increase tenfold over the next five years.

- Mobile operators are currently a barrier to adoption but could become a significant driver of adoption over the next several years.

- Business mobile VoIP is based on IP PBX and hosted PBX solutions.

- Growth in IP PBX mobile VoIP usage will largely be driven by mid-sized and enterprise businesses.
