Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "IP Phones Worldwide — On the Desk and Beyond
" report to their offering. IP phones are moving in full force in both the consumer and business markets. Within the business market, corded IP phones remain the standard, and will continue to dominate the enterprise IP phone market throughout the forecast period. However, WLAN and IP DECT phones continue to grow.
Consumer VoIP services are predominantly being delivered through service providers through the use of an analog telephone adapter (ATA), with many consumers not knowing they have VoIP services, or requiring special IP phones. DECT phone systems dominate the consumer IP phone market, with corded phones predominantly being sold in specific regions of the world, or for SOHO use. Impacting both the enterprise and consumer IP phone markets are the Wi-Fi/cellular combination phones. While an increasing number of cellular phones contain Wi-Fi, only a certain percentage of them support VoIP.
This report includes market shares and forecasts through 2012 for corded, cordless, WLAN, and Wi-Fi/cellular IP phones sold for consumers and businesses.
