VoIP primarily deals with transformation of voice signals into digital data over the internet. VoIP makes use of internet as a telephony network. A regular computer, mobile phone, telephone, or VoIP phone can be utilized to make a call. The various VoIP services can be distributed across the cable infrastructure and public switched telephone network (PSTN). The other delivery providers include wireless infrastructures, power lines, and satellites. There are several protocols being used to implement VoIP services that include media gateway control protocol (MGCP), inter asterisk exchange (IAX), session initiation protocol (SIP), real time protocol (RTP), and H.323 among others. The major benefit offered by VoIP service is the cost-effectiveness. VoIP can be used to provide rich media services and phone number portability. Also, VoIP offers certain features such as integrated applications, service mobility user control interface, and other features. It is therefore easy to install, use and troubleshoot various VoIP services.
The technological innovations and development in network structures, high performance ratio and mobile communication will propel the growth of global VoIP market in near future. The diversification of telecom service providers coupled with rising bring your own device (BYOD) trend is expected to fuel the growth of global VoIP services market in coming years. Moreover, the global VoIP services market is further fuelled by technological advancements. The rising usage of portable devices such as smartphones and tablets has led to the expansion of global VoIP market. The VoIP services are economical for both corporate and individual customers. The use of VoIP services enables corporate customers to reduce their operational costs.
