Businesses continue to invest more in communications solutions and IT equipment with the passing of each year, as the average workplace becomes more digitally driven and fast-paced.
The unified communications market has been fast-growing and quickly diversifying in the past few years, driven by increased demands among business owners for services and solutions that are more affordable and powerful.
Video conferencing has been one the fastest-growing unified communications solutions throughout the past several years, driven by the globalization of markets and the need for affordable collaboration tools across all industries.
Although the primary focus of unified communications projects should be central to the equipment and services entering the corporate framework, businesses must recognize that these new technologies will have an impact on existing infrastructure - especially the network.
Unified communications remains as one of the most important trends in corporate computing and provisioning, as the number and diversity of tools that need to be integrated have exploded in the past few years.
Unified communications has quietly become one of the hottest trends in corporate computing today, while other, more flashy movements such as cloud computing and the Internet of Things have stolen some of the spotlight.
In the past several years, more businesses and public sector agencies have adopted and launched video conferencing solutions to connect their employees and clientele regardless of where each party might be at any given time.
As is the case with any blossoming industry, the technology behind unified communications began as a bit one-dimensional, with companies only having a few options to choose from and a small level of potential applications.
Unified communications is still somewhat new to many small business owners, especially some of the tools contained therein such as Voice over Internet Protocol phone systems and video conferencing solutions.
Voice over Internet Protocol phone systems have been around for the better part of 15 years, and many small businesses have made the transition toward these investments more recently.
