Implementation of VoIP is growing rapidly. There will also be further convergence of media, data, voice and video. In order to achieve these further levels of convergence, interoperability and continued work on standards will be critical. SIP is emerging as the major protocol to underpin IP-based advanced services.

Another key driver will be the development of wireless VoIP, which will provide students and staff with different ways to access learning environments while integrated services will open up the possibilities of ubiquitous computing. In future, learning may take place in a shared virtual world of social computing, similar to an online, multiplayer game, and VoIP will be one of the components of such an environment.

VoIP gateways have become the world's de facto standard in building voice and video over IP products and services. These gateways provide real-time voice and video IP communications. Many large SMEs are already looking to VoIP service providers for their needs. Many developing countries are also looking to VoIP to provide services to remote areas that are currently not reachable through traditional means.

Today, hundreds of thousands of people around the world use commercially deployed IP-centric products and services for next generation networks. However, the focus now is not just getting the VoIP service running but in delivering secure and high quality services.
