Ever since the first VoIP calls were made in 1973, packetized voice was supposed to be the nail in the coffin of enterprise PBX systems. Thirty-seven years later, conferencing and instant message and presence, or IM/P, have successfully penetrated the enterprise, but VoIP is still lagging behind traditional voice services in the large enterprise setting. It has found much broader acceptance among consumers and smaller businesses.
While there are several key barriers preventing widespread enterprise adoption of VoIP, more and more large companies are recognizing the usefulness of this technology. The enterprise VoIP equipment market will increase at a compound annual growth rate of 15 percent between 2010 and 2014, according to one study .
Meanwhile, more companies of all sizes have deployed unified communication (UC) solutions, including VoIP, this year than in 2010, found a recent report by InformationWeek.
The survey of more than 300 business technology professionals determined that 36 percent of organizations were using UC in 2012, compared to 30 percent in April 2010. Another 31 percent of businesses planned to implement a unified communications solution within the next two years.

The American Cable Association urged the Federal Communications Commission to eschew VoIP Interconnection trials sought by AT&T and others because they are unnecessary in making the competitively significant legal determination that bedrock interconnection protections found in sections 251 and 252 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 apply to cable VoIP providers, regardless of the communications technology used.
"The FCC should act now to affirm that regardless of technology, all interconnection for the exchange of traffic is governed by sections 251 and 252 of the Act," ACA President and CEO Matthew M. Polka said. "Confirming that interconnection rights exist when exchanging managed VoIP traffic is the critical issue the FCC should address."
ACA views came in commentsfiled July 8 with the FCC in response to the public notice issued by the agency's Technology Transitions Policy Task Force, which sought input on three specific trials - VoIP Interconnection, Next Generation 911, and Wireline to Wireless - and offered the opportunity to comment on AT&T's IP Trial proposal. ACA commented only on the VoIP Interconnection trial and, to the extent it involves similar issues, on the AT&T IP Trial proposal.
ACA members face regulatory-related issues in exchanging managed VoIP traffic, stemming from the fact that incumbent providers possess and exercise market power when it comes to interconnection negotiations. ACA members need to rely upon the interconnection framework of section 251(c)(2) and 252(d)(1) of the 1996 Telecom Act to ensure they are able to interconnect with dominant ILECs at cost-based rates and on reasonable and non-discriminatory terms.
Despite competition in select retail voice markets, larger ILECs continue to dominate the interconnection and transit markets, ACA said. Because the larger ILECs operate in and control larger geographic areas than any competitive provider, they control more end points that competitors need to reach and have less need to interconnect with other providers to terminate traffic. This places the larger ILECs in a dominant position in interconnection negotiations vis-a-vis competitive providers.

Bright House Networks, the nation’s sixth largest cable company, recently launched a hosted VoIP solution targeted at small and medium-sized business customers who have between 5 and 30 lines. The hosted voice service is based on a platform acquired when Bright House bought Telovations late last year. Bright House joins other cable operators such as Comcast and Cox Communications who also offer hosted VoIP.
The cloud-based service is provided over a dedicated data line and includes any needed hardware and maintenance in the monthly rate. Bright House also provides installation and data network upgrades as a professional service needed to support the VoIP solution. Customers can select from four feature packages (Premium, Business, Mobility, and Conference) and five HD-voice-capable devices from Cisco and Polycom. Standard calling feature prices start at $33.95 per user, per month, with a two-year agreement, and customers can add optional features including unified messaging, mobile follow-me features, and other premium services.
In other news, we’ve occasionally highlighted wireless voice as a substitute for wireline voice, and this continues to be an option for both business and consumers who want to “cut the cord.” In an interesting evolution of wireless substitution, AT&T is now offering a purely wireless “double play” that also brings new meaning to BYOD.
Called AT&T Wireless Home Phone and Internet, the service features broadband access and unlimited domestic voice calls, delivered to all-in-one tabletop device. Broadband access is provided through the AT&T 4G LTE network.
Users of Google Voice have recently learned that the service now offers a way to make purely Internet-based phone calls. When users make a SIP call with a “sip:” prefix, the Google phone number and @sip.voice.google.com skips the usual phone network completely, saving some of the users’ cellphone minutes. Disruptive Telephony has already tested the service and declared that the call worked great.
