Global VoIP Industry

The Voice over internet Protocol (VoIP) services industry refers to the conversion of voice signals into digital data, which is transmitted over the internet, reports IBIS World. In other words, it represents the concept of telecommunicating using your internet connection as telephony network. VoIP services cater to businesses, consumers and state bodies. VoIP services are delivered through several facilities, including cable infrastructures and the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). Other delivery providers include power lines, satellite and wireless infrastructures.

Obstacles to market entry include competition from leading outfits such as Google, and strict regulations to which the industry must adhere. The rollout of 4G technology will fuel market growth, and cable companies offering VoIP service together with cable service will do well over coming years.

Obstacles to market growth include commoditization and a competitive environment.

IMS allows messaging to break the boundary of mobile via IP to provide a comprehensive service spanning many networks, applications and media.
