Cisco is losing its marketshare in the field of Unified Communications IP Telephony continuously?
Compare IP PBX Systems FromLeading Vendors Like Cisco, Nortel And Avaya
What are your views on CiscoUnified Communications IP Telephony Future?
I assume you do not work for Cisco.
nice to c ur reply. I had a around 5 years full time Cisco Unified Communications IP Telephony and IPCC Experience. Moreover I have been CCVP certified since feb-2007 as well as CCIE-Voice(written) since Aug-2009.
I think we are going away from topic of the thread.
Can you plz share your views on future of Cisco Unified Communiations?
What i am looking ahead is; Microsoft + skype, Google + Avaya and some other open source PBX like Asterisk + Skype etc. combinations will definitly capture the Unified Communications Market.
Anyways Thanks for your reply.
OK Guess Time.
Microsoft (Skype) will install Wifi around the world and consumers will add their Access Units into the new Microsoft WiFi Net aka MSWnet.
All telephone calls we be very low cost and the mobile/cellular providers will see massive drops in revenue.
Mobile/Celluar providers will respond with 4G and deliver 40M+ to each mobile phone and move into the service industry.
Roaming fees will disapear because G over VPN boxes (femtocell) will be issued to every traveller so they can carry 3G/4G over the WiFi networks into the Internet,
Open source requires capital injection so likely to be taken over by cash rich companies and become less open.
Cisco will dominate the corporate market delivering video to every desktop, laptop and iPhone. But joint Cisco-MS products.
Nortel (?) Avaya Mitel Phillips will be niche players specialising in Contract Centre eventually merging into one company.
Social Networking will integrate Presence so when you are unhappy I can advertise chocolate or retail therapy.
Personal Area Networking (PAN) will arrive so rather smiling across the disco floor you can broadcast I am available and I like these attributes (modern day astology)
The PANs will talk to each other. A sort of arranged marriage concept.
Location services will become important so your friends will know where you are. Friends will be defined in rings similar so you have very close, close, good and known friends. I think this is called the 3cube system.
Please note I lay cables rather than economic forecasting so assume the above is a bad guess.
Hi All ,
I have been working in SS7 STACK development and involved in development of SS7 layers (MTP2, MTP3, SCCP, ISUP, TCAP ,INAP). Cisco's unified communication is excellent example of integration of PSTN and IP in IPBX product line. I see there is good competition with Asterisk based products which are open source and can customized to application need. Cisco has been good in offering a certification and enhance the knowledgebase to rest of the world. I can see as it will be next to Asterisk.
LMAO!!! I'm giving you the unofficial title as the "John Stewart" of networking!
You have a very keen eye on technology in general, and are most prescient in your prognostications of industry and societal trends!
Keep it up, as you truly liven-up CLN!
Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts. Especially Conwyn, you really had deep insight on the UC industry. I like your post. You might get the title chriss gave to you. Moreover any reference can be more beneficial if anyone might reply from now on.
