pdf_gross.gifThe Future of Voice Telephony

backtotop.gifTraining Course Description


  • This training course or rather workshop addresses the needs of everybody who likes to get an independent view on the future of voice telephony.
  • In general, the course is rather focusing on business aspects than on technology but through INACON-specific teaching methodology, we are able to accommodate technical sidesteps at any time and in any depth, if required and desired.
  • Starting out with the presentation of current trends in voice communication, the students will review developments and trends like migration to VoIP, migration to mobile, FMC and others.
  • This part contains an independent evaluation of the pros and cons of UMA vs home base stations vs IMS-based solutions.
  • We also integrated an evaluation of the situation from the client's perspective: Which part of the population is ready for new devices, new numbering schemes and alternative telephony channels (e.g. VoIP vs Legacy, SKYPE-number or SIP-URI vs regular number)?
  • The course continues with an overview of the revenue gained from voice services vs data services and the recent developments in this sector. However, much more important is the consideration of the future revenue chains, interpreting and extrapolating the current directions.
  • The next part is dedicated to the evaluation of the SKYPE-service and its pros and cons compared to legacy telephony. This part includes a comparison of costs, resource consumption and voice quality of SKYPE vs other solutions under different conditions (e.g. at home, while roaming, etc.).
  • The day ends with the presentation and discussion of consequences for the different players.
