LSI Logic

I recently had a chance to interview Ramesh Bhimarao the VoIP product Line Manager at LSI Logic on the future of VoIP development. LSI Logic is a leader in VoIP processors for wireless and wired applications and their products form the foundation of many of the next generation VoIP killer devices I am looking forward to seeing.

What trends are you seeing in VoIP development?

Voice over WiFi and VoIP integration with CPE devices such as routers and broadband modems are the definite trends we are seeing in the marketplace.

Is 2005 the best year for VoIP? 2006, etc?

Deployment will accelerate from now until 2008. Best years are 2006/2007.

IMS as a peer-to-peer free service will be part of the solution towards free telephony in the coming years.

If you would like to learn more about VoIP development or you would like to meet with LSI Logic in the exhibit hall, be sure to come to TMC’s VoIP Developer show August 2-4, 2005 in San Francisco, CA. This event is the industry defining developer event – the world’s only VoIP developer event in fact and we expect the exhibit hall which has now doubled in size over last year to sell out once again. We expect attendance to be over 1,000 which will double last year’s attendance. The registration database is already growing at a healthy clip. I hope to see you there.
