ACIF releases VoIP fact sheet

By

The Australian Communications Industry Forum (ACIF) has released a fact sheet to explain what service providers need to tell consumers about their Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and internet telephony services.

Australian Voice over IP (VoIP) services offer significant cost savings but lack the usability features to achieve further take-up and mainstream penetration, according to a local consulting firm.

Asia Netcom, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Netcom, has signed a contract with Australian ISP, TPG, to deliver a wholly-managed Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) platform as an enhancement to TPG's recently launched Virtual Phone Card.

Telstra has announced plans to release a VoIP service based on Lucent technology to residential customers in the 2005-06 financial year.

VoIP handsets start to gain traction

By

Worldwide WiFi VoIP handset revenue totaled US$45 million in 2004 and units totaled 113,000, according to research organisation Infonetics Research's latest report, "WiFi Phones Annual Worldwide Market Size and Forecast," which includes annual revenue and unit forecasts through 2009. Revenue and units are projected to show strong growth through 2009 as enterprises slowly but steadily continue to deploy voice over wireless LANs (VoWLAN).

Wireless device solutions vendor, i-mate, and internet telephony provider Skype Technologies, have announced the first wireless mobile handsets preloaded with Skype software.

VoIP telephony software developer, Integrated Research (ASX:IRI), has released a new suite of shrink wrap products designed to manage VoIP deployments in multi-site, branch-office organisations such as banks, finance and insurance organizations, retailers, hospitals, travel agents and educational institutions.
