    The Time Is Now: Cloud Communications

    Let’s face it. Internet access for everything we touch is an imminent reality. This includes voice. Hosted voice solutions combine cost-effective technology with seamless integration of voice and data, ensuring that companies and clients staay connected.

    Traditional Telephony in Decline

    Twenty states have passed legislation allowing AT&T to end landline service. Businesses and consumers are being served by other technologies. The end of landline telephony is nearing.

    The Rise of VoIP

    VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) allows voice communications to be routed via the Internet or a private, secure network, instead of traditional analog phone networks.

    VoIP Adoption is On the Rise

    • More than 36% of businesses use VoIP
    • In 2020, it's projected that 204.8 billion worldwide corporate consumers will adopt VoIP
    • Global VoIP revenues reach $55 billion in 2025 - 40% of this expected to be in the United States
    • The total VoIP market is projected to grow at 9.1% per year through 2021
    • Hybrid PBX shipments grew 15% in 2018
    • At the end of 2018, Hosted PBX accounted for 18% of all new PBX sales. That's a huge jump from 4% of all PBX shipments in 2010
    • Year-over-year growth in purchases of Hosted PBX was 6%

    Retention of VoIP
