Interesting article at Computer Business Review online about a new partnership between three huge tech leaders.
“Called the Internet Voice Campaign, or IVC, the group’s mission is to boost adoption and usage of VoIP in the country.
Google and Skype are among founding members of the group, which is part
of The VON Coalition. Level 3, Pulver.com, Sonus Networks and USA
Datanet also are part of IVC.
IVC hopes to break down barriers to VoIP adoption, which include
concern of 911 support, privacy, security, call quality and power
failures, by educating consumers about the benefits of VoIP and
IVC plans to conduct a survey later this year to find out what types of
services and products consumers want from VoIP. The group also will
launch a VoIP consumer awareness campaign.”
Skype has made leaps and bounds just over the past year alone so who knows what they can bring when partnered with the likes of Google and Earthlink.
