Study: IP Telephony Finds its Place in Enterprise

IP telephony will soon penetrate the Fortune 1000 enterprise market, according to a new study released today from Killen & Associates (Palo Alto, Calif., www.killen.com).

The study forecasts that as much as 18 percent of enterprise voice traffic will travel via IP-based networks by the year 2002. According to the research, users, service providers, and equipment vendors alike were confident that IP voice would attain a quality standard acceptable to Fortune 1000 companies' stringent requirements.

The study includes results from a Killen survey that focused on the insurance, manufacturing and retail industries. Telecom/datacom managers and CIOs queried expected that IP voice would comprise 18 percent of all enterprise voice traffic by year 2002, growing to 33 percent in year 2005. The equipment and service provider executives interviewed expressed similar optimism. --Brian Ploskina, Assistant Editor
