Kevin Werbach on VoIP

Kevin has a number of posts – of which this is the latest – defining 2005 as “The year of VoIP”.

I think he is right. This Bell Canada announcement is equally a signpost. As is this interview with Vint Cerf.

I can’t help thinking that voice is only one component of a communications over IP world however. The future network – which is here today in embryo – is going to carry voice, video, data, messaging and presence information. VoIP will be just a small milestone.

I think of it as a process like the OS taking on more and more. Only in this case the OS is the IP network.
