Changes in the technology market should come as no surprise to anybody. After all, it is the ability to innovate and offer new and successful solutions that allows some providers to stand out in this area.
Therefore, it is worth considering any new technology that comes on to the market, such as IP telephony. The telecommunications system, which allows users to make calls that run on the internet rather than traditional phone lines, is a good way to cut costs and increase efficiency.
A new report by Research and Markets, quoting TechNavio's analysts, suggests this sector is booming right now as more companies turn to the option. Indeed, it is said to be driving growth in the global enterprise network equipment (GENA) market.
GENA is expected to grow by an average of 9.5 per cent a year between 2011 and 2015 - and IP telephony will be crucial to this. Another factor is the increasing use of internet-enabled mobile devices, a trend that is sweeping across many firms in a variety of sectors.
One of the major issues that remains for many bosses is that of security, with some fearing it will hamper growth of the GENA market. But businesses should be confident that protection will be in place when they invest in the very best IP telephony solutions.
The advantages of acquiring an IP telephony set-up were recently summed up in a report by Guardian Professional that revealed Belfast Health and Social Care Trust has handed a £20 million contract to BT to provide it with the best the industry has to offer. This will give its 17,000 users a way to make efficient calls.
But it is not only those in the health trade that can benefit from the latest IP telephony. Indeed, its benefits are well worth exploring no matter what business a firm finds itself working in.
