Suppliers are also upgrading audio quality and user interface.
- Migration to Gigabit technology: Makers are launching VoIP phones enabling Gigabit Ethernet, stepping up from earlier versions that deliver 10/100Mbps. More variants support IPv6.
- Audio & display enhancements Mainstream models from China adopt G.165 for better echo cancellation. High-end variants based on G.168 can achieve the last, plus raise voice quality. Suppliers are also equipping upscale VoIP phones with larger and high-resolution displays. Some use touchscreens for easier operation.
- Scalability: Besides providing stand-alone devices, manufacturers can customize and provide platform systems and solutions. These target SMEs and call centers.
- Sales & price outlook: The majority of interviewed makers anticipate a 30 to 50 percent jump in revenue this year amid strong orders. Many will shift marketing emphasis to emerging areas such as Southeast Asia and Russia. Most suppliers will keep quotes unchanged in 2Q12, although some plan to reduce rates to edge out competitors.
