DSP Group's WiFi Telephony Chip: Wireless Voice Over IP

It is no secret that WiFi telephony is the future of VoIP. Just as consumer adoption launched VoIP into the mainstream, it is possible that these same consumers will do the same for WiFi telephony. Frankly it should be business users that accelerate the adoption but consumers have done an amazing job of harnessing leading edge technologies. Businesses are a bit gun-shy after the dotcom era it seems.So we will likely see the consumer and business space work together on building this new category of product. Pretty soon we will see all cell phones and PDAs enabled to take advantage of WiFi telephony. That is just a logical conclusion about where we are headed. the question is when will we get there? I would say in about 24 months most every new cell phone will have VoIP built in via WiFi. The carriers will resist this so if there is a slowdown we can count on the carriers threatening the cell phone makers as the reason DSP Group is one of the companies enabling the new WiFi telephony world with their new cordless VoIP chip. By integrating VOIP, traditional telephony and digital cordless functionality on a single silicon die, they are able to reduce cost and increase the penetration of WiFi telephony.
