Highly Recommend What the Experts say SHEILA MCGEE-SMITH MIKE BRAGG President & Principal Analyst at McGee-Smith Analytics CFO of WhichVOIP "Unlike past technological advancements, VolP is seeing growth not only in advanced economies or specific sectors, but on an international scale. In fact, some of the fastest growing regions are those that traditionally have had less developed infrastructures. So where is this hot industry growing the fastest, and where is it facing resistance? We have crunched the numbers to get a truly global picture of the bright future of VolP." "One of the most significant impacts of VolP has been in eliminating the need to be co-located with infrastructure in order to receive services. While technical alternatives for telecommuting and work-at-home existed previously, they were cumbersome and expensive. VolP in fact laid the groundwork for the location-independence now touted by cloud services." "Packet-based voice opens up the participation of voice in the upcoming revolution of sensors, sense-making and sentient machines. Whatever we have achieved this far in human communications pales in comparison to the superhuman capabilities that lie ahead."
