VoIP is Killing Fixed Telephony
No. 03, 2006
"Alittle less conversation, a little more action, please." That text comes from an Elvis Presley song from the 1970s. If his songs were focused not on love, but on business, Elvis could name his album "Conversation is Action" today. Four decades after his golden era, we are seeing developments in conversation and in action. We communicate more, we do more work, and we determine solutions more quickly. Business, however, has not changed in one critical respect we still want to sell more and spend less. Thanks to VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) technologies, we spend less money now for more conversation. The old PSTN (Public Switched Telephony Network) system is facing a slow and inevitable death.
