Business mobility set to accelerate past $6 billion
As voice-over-IP (VoIP) proves itself a powerful solution for businesses around the world, experts are seeing a huge demand for VoIP in the mobile world.
Indeed, business mobile VoIP gateway revenues are expected to soar past $6 billion in 2015, according to research firm, In-Stat, in a recent report.
“Mobile VoIP has only recently begun being implemented in the business environment,” says Amy Cravens, market analyst for In-Stat, in a press release citing the report. “One of the key benefits of mobile VoIP for enterprises is extending desk phone functionality to mobile devices. Business-oriented solutions will essentially enable the users' cellphones to become an extension of their desk phones and will deliver, in addition to voice, a unified communications experience, including email, IM, and collaboration.”
The In-Stat report explores the emerging market for business mobile VoIP offering and mentions ShoreTel in its findings.
ShoreTel Mobility already is putting the power of the desk phone in mobile workers' pockets, with a PBX-agnostic platform that integrates with existing leading business communication systems, including the ShoreTel UC system.
