1. Mobile VoIP. Mobile VoIP applications are on the rise, which means there's soon going to be a change in how voice traffic is transmitted. Mobile phone use continues to be on the increase with more and more businesses placing an emphasis on using a mobile phone for business-related purposes.
2. Cloud VoIP. Cloud computing is here to stay. Even though there's been a lot of back and forth on high-tech cloud phone systems - convenience and benefits vs. security risks - reports show that more and more businesses are still choosing to sign up for cloud phone systems. The fact that a lot of security measures have been put into place to protect the information held in a cloud has seemingly won over the trust of both small and medium-sized businesses.
3. Goodbye Traditional Landlines. It looks like it's time to say goodbye to all of the traditional phone networks. Transitioning to an all IP network is currently underway, which essentially means that we'll all be using broadband very soon. The reason for doing so is to help guarantee a reliable delivery with the best privacy protocols set into place.
4. Fraud - BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Because security and fraud are 2 issues that people do need to be aware of when dealing with the cloud, the telecommunications industry is doing everything they can to combat this problem. This is why it's important for all employers to have a personal device rule in place. Although some businesses allow their employees to use their personal device when working, it's important to understand that these devices can be extremely vulnerable to a number of security risks if they don't have the appropriate support put into place first.
