Future of VoIP over Wireless in Economic Downturn
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Student thesis
Voice over IP (VoIP) and wireless are revolutionary technologies by all means of modern time which change the attributes of communications dramatically. VoIP has been established as potential alternative to tradition public switched telephone network (PSTN) technology whereas Wireless communication is the most widely used access method where fixed or remote access to network resources is important. Since both technologies have shown their existence in today’s market individually, merger of these technologies was necessary and hence both technologies are being deployed but the question is whether these newly merged combination of technologies will be able to serve up to the same level of expectations and survive in current economic downturn and helps the companies to cut their cost drastically or will be finish with the time. This thesis explores the main factors affecting the deployment of VoIP over Wireless by the telecom operators and its adoption of VoIP over Wireless by Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and general consumers. It includes QoS, Security, user behavior, regulations, and last but not least current economic downturn. It would be a difficult task to explain all these issues with regards to the world market in this thesis so throughout our research, European market will be our preliminary focus. First, the thesis will briefly look into the future services, applications and trends which will be beneficial in supporting the growth rate of VoIP over Wireless in near future and then we will investigate all those trouble making factors causing a slow adoption rate of VoIP over Wireless. At the end of the thesis, there will be some proposals and suggestions to improve the growth rate and adoption of VoIP over Wireless
