Description:

This paper examines what must be done, as VoIP moves away from the early adopter to an early majority market stage, by incumbents, mobile operators, cable companies and ISPs in order to find ways to turn VoIP from a threat into an opportunity. The author reports that the instruments used for this study include interviews, referrals and consultation feedback, which includes a Web-based survey. The paper discovers that broadband development has led to a situation in which the moratorium in the Netherlands Antilles puts national long-distance licensees at a disadvantage.

From the Paper:

"The term, "broadband," comes from the words, "broad bandwidth," and is used to describe a high-capacity, two-way link between an end user and access network suppliers that are capable of supporting full-motion, interactive video applications. Broadband is also the term that is used to describe ICT-infrastructures with a very large capacity. In this context, bandwidth considerations mean that implementing VoIP is not as straightforward as deploying other types of network applications."
