Traditional voice mail faces demise

13 Jul 2006

Traditional voice mail systems are expected to disappear from the market by the end of 2009 as equipment providers continue to embrace unified messaging (UM) technology. An In-Stat report forecasts that UM/UM-capable shipments will rise from 8.4 million seats in 2005 to 11.7 million seats in 2010. UM will also grow beyond traditional voice mail, PC-based email and fax messaging, as wireless PDAs and Blackberry devices enter the picture. The growing popularity of 802.11-based systems in the workplace, at home and in public spaces, as well as the upcoming introduction of dual-mode Wi-Fi/mobile phones will boost the need for compatibility with such devices.
