A newly published report from Dell'Oro Group reveals that IP PBX shipments will reach 28 million lines in 2006, surpassing TDM shipments. According to the Dell’Oro Group IP Telephony Enterprise 5-Year Forecast Report, IP Telephone shipments have entered a period of sustained growth. Dell’Oro tells us that the IP Telephone market will expand from simply a PBX handset business into emerging IP Centrex and Residential Voice-over-IP (VoIP) markets. Consumer wireless LAN (WLAN) phone introductions in 2005 will stimulate IP Telephone sales to residential VoIP subscribers.
According to Steve Raab, Director of IP Telephony Research at Dell’Oro Group, “The transition from PBX to IP PBX is happening faster than the transition from Traditional Key Systems to PBX.”
