Two items, in case you missed them.
First SIP is it when it comes to emerging VoIP standards.
The latest from Frost & Sullivan suggests that many developers are using SIP, versus other standards in building multimedia communication applications.
The caveat is that there's a growing need to standardise video services, which spells the need for regulatory bodies to weigh in. The FCC has already proven to be rather telco-friendly under Chairman Martin, but other standards bodies are likely to have influence on this front, both within and outside the U.S.
Datapoint Two: VoIP use is growing. Eighteen percent of Americans are using a residential VoIP service, up four percent from last June, with Vonage holding slightly under a third of the market.
The show gets better and better.
