Following the Trends in Wholesale VoIP

In the telecommunications industry, there are many who still consider VoIP to be in its infancy. The technology has been widely adopted, yet the opportunity for expansion and enhancement is still significant. In looking throughout the rest of 2013, there are a number of directions the industry can take, and while we may not know where each will lead, we can be sure that each will ultimately enhance the experience for the user.


One recent report brought this important topic tot light, where it discussed what we can expect to see from VoIP in 2013. The first, and perhaps most important, development in VoIP for 2013 could easily be the increased integration for mobile users, as well as the opportunity to combine texting and IM. VOIPDITO first came out with a solution to combine texting and chatting, although RingCentral (News - Alert) made waves as the first major VoIP provider to offer the same service.

The combination of these two technologies is really only logical given such things as trends in mobile phone usage for e-mail exchange, completing transactions and other activities that once required a stationary PC. More mobile features are likely to make their way to the VoIP desktop client as mobile users not only want extended capabilities on their mobile devices, but they want the same capabilities when sitting at their desk, as well.

In a related report, TMC (News - Alert) shared how industry expert, VoIP Innovations President, Jason Tapolci, divulged his own predictions regarding mobile VoIP. Tapolci noted that wireless mobile providers are noticing the trend toward mobile VoIP in favor of fixed VoIP lines; in fact, the former has surpassed the latter in terms of revenue. Now, wireless providers must focus on their wireless broadband networks. Additionally, Tapolci expects to continue to see shifts in the market as well as see new specialties cemented as providers seek to identify and secure their niche.

As the VoIP market continues to grow, we should also expect to see more companies and more competition. One of the attractions for potential wholesale VoIP providers is that the market offers low barriers to entry. Coupled with rapid revenue opportunities, this makes wholesale VoIP quite a hot space right now. As this trend toward increased options in providers continues, prices will stay consistently lower and feature sets will continue to expand.

This trend points to the expansion in specialties Taploci mentioned. In a subsequent TMCnet piece, he noted that the major players in this space have a close relationship and stay in regular contact. To focus on wholesale VoIP marketing, they have begun to focus on specific aspects of the offering that may stand apart from others.

Taploci suggests these specialties may include CNAM, LRN dipping, DIDs and origination, number peering, fax and billing solutions and more. As these providers build their businesses to their strengths, end users are sure to benefit from the access to new capabilities at competitive rates.

Social media is also expected to expand in the VoIP space, as Facebook (News - Alert) is expected to roll out its own client for iOS. Needless to say, wholesale VoIP providers are sure to jump on-board and leverage this new revenue opportunity. At the same time, we should expect to see VoIP challenged less by traditional telephony, as the smartphone has become the new standard. VoIP has an opportunity to compete and cooperate with smartphones, which will require a unique approach to the market.

VoIP Innovations (News - Alert) takes pride in being consistently ahead of the curve and one step ahead of leading industry trends. Fully equipped with the know-how, skill and pure expertise to get the job done, VoIP Innovations thrives as one of today’s top players in the telecommunications space and boasts a loyal client-base to prove it. As a top wholesale VoIP provider, Tapolci and the entire team at VoIP Innovations strive to only further position themselves as thought leaders in the space.
